MORALES, Camilo; GAY, Joaquín  y  ESPARZA, Tomás. PROPHYLACTIC STRATEGIES FOR OROPHARYNGEAL DYSPHAGIA IN PATIENTS WITH HEAD AND NECK CANCER: A NARRATIVE REVIEW. Rev Cient Cienc Méd [online]. 2020, vol.23, n.1, pp. 69-76. ISSN 2077-3323.

Head and neck cancer is a worldwide prevalent pathology. Its approach consists, in most cases, on chemoradiotherapy. Within its multiple consequences, compromises anatomy and functioning of structures related to swallowing, generating oropharyngeal dysphagia. In this context, Speech and Language Pathologist management is predominantly carried out with exercises implemented after the manifestation of dysphagia, existing increasing interest in prophylactic management of the condition, with several studies on the usefulness of exercises and related available maneuvers. Consequently, the objective of the present review is to present therapeutic resources based on good quality evidence for the proactive management of this alteration, guiding the clinical decision on its use.
