Future Perspectives in Sleep Surgery.

Future Perspectives in Sleep Surgery. Adv Otorhinolaryngol. 2017;80:148-154 Authors: Friedman M, Salapatas AM, Bonzelaar LB Abstract Over the past few decades there has been a significant increase in research focusing on the pathophysiology, diagnosis, and treatment of sleep apnea. However, there is still a long way to go in creating standard evidence-based medical practice for the diagnosis, evaluation, and treatment of sleep apnea patients. Current and future directions of sleep surgery and other treatments are discussed here. PMID: 28738352 [PubMed - in process]

ConclusionsThe presence of dysphagia in patients with moderate to severe apnea is frequent and subclinical, reinforcing the need to investigate this symptom in this group of patients. However, the presence of dysphagia did not result in worsening in patients' quality of life, suggesting that, although frequent, its effect is mild. There was no relevance regarding the association of clinical and polysomnographic parameters with the presence of dysphagia.ResumoIntroduçãoExistem evidências de que o trauma ocasionado pelo ronco na faringe poderia ocasionar disfagia em pacientes com apneia obstrutiva do sono...

ConclusionsThis work proposed using an acceleration sensor as a reliable method of sleep apnea screening, detection of an apnea event, sending alert to the patient, and detection of the patient lying position. The developed device is more economical, comfortable, and convenient than existing systems for not only the patients but also the doctors. The patients can easily use this device in their home environment.Graphical abstract

AbstractBackgroundSingle anastomosis sleeve ileal (SASI) bypass is a newly introduced bariatric and metabolic procedure. The present multicenter study aimed to evaluate the efficacy of the SASI bypass in the treatment of patients with morbid obesity and the metabolic syndrome.MethodsThis is a retrospective, seven-country, multicenter study on patients with morbid obesity who underwent the SASI bypass. Data regarding patients ’ demographics, body mass index (BMI), percentage of total weight loss (%TWL), percentage of excess weight loss (%EWL), and improvement in comorbidities at 12 months postoperatively and postopera...

Conclusions:The differential results of heritability and familial aggregation of OSA in normal weight and overweight subgroups substantiated the recommendation of separating childhood OSA into normal weight and overweight subtypes. In the overweight subgroup, there may be obesity-independent components involved in the genetic variance of OAHI, although a significant proportion of the genetic variance is shared with obesity.Citation:Au CT, Zhang J, Cheung JYF, Chan KCC, Wing YK, Li AM.
