Physiological Variability in the Deglutition Literature: Hyoid and Laryngeal Kinematics

A literature review was conducted on hyoid and/or laryngeal displacement during swallowing in healthy populations according to several inclusion criteria. Anterior and superior displacement measures of both structures from previously published studies were compiled for meta-analysis. Results showed a large degree of variability across studies for each structure and plane of movement. Potential sources of variation were identified, including statistical, methodological, stimulus-related, and participant-related sources.
