Organization of tongue movements before and after frenotomy for posterior tongue-tie: an Ultrasound analysis

Recent biomechanical analysis of tongue movements during breastfeeding has illuminated how healthy infants use their tongues to produce subatmospheric (negative) pressures and move milk in the mouth for swallowing. This talk reviews normal tongue kinematics during breastfeeding and extends this objective analysis to tongue-tied infants before and after frenotomy and briefly discusses the clinical implications of the changes seen in infants with ankyloglossia.

This lecture is also offered as part of the Infant Suck Lecture Pack.

She speaks to healthcare professionals around the world on assisting breastfeeding babies with anatomical, genetic or neurological problems. Her presentations and her writing are enriched by her clinical photographs and videos. Catherine collaborates with Columbia University and Tel Aviv University Departments of Biomedical Engineering on research projects investigating the biomechanics of the lactating nipple and various aspects of sucking and swallowing in breastfeeding infants. She is the author of Selecting and Using Breastfeeding Tools: Improving Care and Outcomes (Praeclarus Press 2009) and Supporting Sucking Skills in Breastfeeding Infants (Jones and Bartlett Learning 2008, 2013, 2017) as well as professional journal articles and chapters in the Core Curriculum for Lactation Consultant Practice and Breastfeeding and Human Lactation.

Objective 1: Describe how the anterior and mid-tongue move differently during normal breastfeeding

Objective 2: List two differences between tongue movements in tongue-tied infants and healthy infants

Objective 3: Detail two consequences of these restrictions

Abstract:

Recent biomechanical analysis of tongue movements during breastfeeding has illuminated how healthy infants use their tongues to produce subatmospheric (negative) pressures and move milk in the mouth for swallowing. This talk reviews normal tongue kinematics during breastfeeding and extends this objective analysis to tongue-tied infants before and after frenotomy and briefly discusses the clinical implications of the changes seen in infants with ankyloglossia.

How much time do I have to view the presentations?

  • The viewing time will be specified for each product. When you purchase multiple items in your cart, the viewing time becomes CUMULATIVE. Ex. Lecture 1= 2 weeks and Lecture Pack 2 = 4 Weeks, you will have a total of 6 weeks viewing time for ALL the presentations made in that purchase.
