    ABSTRACT: Objective: The objective is to assess patients complaining of dysphagia with fibreoptic endoscopic evaluation of swallowing [FEES]. Study design: It is a prospective study. Setting: The study is conducted at Tertiary referral hospital. Methods: In our study, twenty patients with complaints of dysphagia were evaluated with fibreoptic endoscopic evaluation of swallowing. Patients with pharyngeal cause of dysphagia were identified and recommended dietary modifications or positional manoeuvre. Results: A total of twenty patients were evaluated with FEES. Patients were categorised into two groups based on the etiological factor: neurological and non-neurological patients. In eleven of the neurological patients, premature spillage was seen in four patients. Pooling for solids was seen in one patient and for liquids in four patients, pooling for both solids and liquids was seen in six patients, penetration was seen in 1 patient and aspiration in one patient. All these patients were diagnosed to have a pharyngeal cause of dysphagia. In the nine of the non-neurological group, pooling of liquids was seen in four patients, and aspiration was seen in one patient. None of the patients of this group had spillage. One patent had penetration. Five patients had pharyngeal cause of dysphagia. Remaining four patients had normal study. These patients with pharyngeal cause were advised dietary modification or positional manoeuvre or a combination of both. Conclusion: FEES is an effective and valuable tool for evaluating pharyngeal dysphagia, and is helpful in guiding the patients for diet and rehabilitation. It is essential to assess the safety of swallowing in patients to prevent silent aspiration and aspiration pneumonia.
