BACKGROUND: Our objective was to determine the texture of semisolid foods that are appropriate for poststroke dysphagic patients. METHODS: Subjects included 52 poststroke dysphagic patients (72 ± 8 years of age) who were trained with semisolid foods and required the evaluation of swallowing function. Fifty-two homogeneous semisolid foods not requiring mastication were given. Texture were measured twice using a rheometer (TPU-2S; Yamaden Co. Ltd., Tokyo, Japan). Texture characteristics were as follows: hardness, 1873 to 19,510 N/m(2) (mean 9,129 N/m(2)); cohesiveness, 0.13 to 0.67 (mean 0.32); adhesiveness, 2 to 878 J/m(3) (mean 209 J/m(3)); and gumminess, 546 to 8781 N/m(2) (mean 2908 N/m(2)). Patients sat during fiberoptic endoscopic evaluation and ingested a single semisolid food. The patients were asked to swallow 4 g of food, and the texture, pharyngeal residue, penetration into the larynx, and aspiration were evaluated. We observed and noted the association between the texture of foods and swallowing movements by videoendoscopy. RESULTS: Evaluating food texture by endoscopy revealed significant differences in adhesiveness according to residue deposition and significant differences in gumminess according to aspiration. CONCLUSIONS: We identified the textures of different semisolid foods as being either appropriate or inappropriate for poststroke dysphagic patients.
