Oropharyngeal dysphagia is a cause of major morbidity and mortality, particularly in the ever-increasing aged population, following stroke, or after extensive head and neck surgery such as for cancer. Videoendoscopy has become a useful tool in the evaluation and treatment of oropharyngeal dysphagia, and it is particularly suited to patients who may be unable to tolerate videofluoroscopy. This paper reviews the current literature regarding the technique of videoendoscopic evaluation and outlines various indications for its use.
