The choice of suprahyoid muscles (mylohyoid muscles, genius-hyoid, digastric and style-hyoid) to evaluate the effect of NMES in dysphagia intervention occurs for the importance of the contraction of these muscles in the swallowing.
Thus, this study aimed to verify the effect of NMES in the contraction of suprahyoid muscles during swallowing in post-stroke patients with oropharyngeal dysphagia.
2000) [19] investigated the pathophysiology of dysphagia in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) by clinical and electrophysiological measurements such as: larynx displacement from a piezoelectric sensor; electromyographic activity surface of suprahyoid muscles (EMG-MSH) and intramuscular electromyographic activity of the cricopharyngeal muscle (SMEI through needle electrodes) during swallowing of different water volumes (Table 1 and 2).
2001) [20] aimed to show the existence and frequency of subclinical electrophysiological abnormalities in oropharyngeal swallowing in myotonic dystrophy, as well as to clarify the pathophysiological mechanisms in this disorder through the following findings: displacement of the larynx, from a piezoelectric sensor; electromyographic activity surface of suprahyoid muscles (EMG-MSH) and intramuscular electromyographic activity of the cricopharyngeal muscle (SMEI through needle electrodes) during swallowing of different water volumes (Table 1 and 2).
The infrahyoid and suprahyoid muscles are partially dissected off to enable the advancement of the hyoid complex.

The digastric muscle is a suprahyoid muscle formed by two muscle bellies: one anterior and the other posterior.
