Retaining Of Food In The Throat

Retaining of food in the throat in the first place requires examination by an ENT specialist and gastro-enterologist.

As this problem can be connected to a neurologic disease, neurologic examination may also be required. The causes of this problem are manifold, but before all it is necessary to exclude mechanical blockage, resp. outgrowth impeding the passage of food.

In our patients mostly “cervical dysphagia” is involved, which is often a symptom of so-called laryngo-pharyngeal reflux disease.
