The Incidence of Sleep Disordered Breathing One Week After Primary Palatoplasty: Evaluation With Overnight Pulse Oximetry

Conclusion: Approximately one-third of the patients may be at the risk of SDB 1 week after primary palatoplasty. Patients with history of laryngomalacia or those who required oxygen support for prolonged time after primary palatoplasty should be cared for significantly high risk of postoperative SDB.

ConclusionEndoscopic coblation technique is superior to cold curettage adenoidectomy in pediatric population. The present systematic review and meta-analysis showed that endoscopic coblation technique had better outcomes in terms of intraoperative blood loss and postoperative pain. However, special attention should be paid for operation time with endoscopic coblation. Nevertheless, further studies are still needed to confirm our findings and to identify patient factors that significantly increase the rate of recurrence in both techniques.

This study was conducted at the Otolaryngology, Head and Neck Surgery Department, Zagazig University.METHODS: This prospective study was conducted on patients with snoring ± obstructive sleep apnea due to acquired postsurgical NPS of grade Ι and ΙΙ. New surgical repair was employed on the patients and the pre and postoperative results were statistically compared.RESULTS: The grade of NPS improved significantly postoperatively (P = .00136) throughout a follow-up of 1 year. Postoperatively, there was statistically significant improvement of apnea hypopnea index (P = .0005), Visual Analog Scale (VAS) of nasal obstruction (P

HNO. 2021 Mar 17. doi: 10.1007/s00106-021-01012-5. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTPediatric obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS) has a high prevalence in the general population. Risk factors are adenotonsillar hyperplasia, preterm birth, obesity, and craniofacial dysmorphia. A special feature of pediatric OSAS is that it can manifest in behavioral problems. These patients also have an increased risk of perioperative anesthesiologic complications. Diagnostic and therapeutic options should be defined individually using the "Snoring in childhood" algorithm of the German Sleep Research and Sleep Medicine Society (D...

AbstractObstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS) is a common pediatric disorder characterized by recurrent events of partial or complete upper airway obstruction during sleep which result in abnormal ventilation and sleep pattern. OSAS in children is associated with neurobehavioral deficits and cardiovascular morbidity which highlights the need for prompt recognition, diagnosis, and treatment. The purpose of this state-of-the-art review is to provide an update on the evaluation and management of children with OSAS with emphasis on children with complex medical comorbidities and those with residual OSAS following first-line ...

CONCLUSIONS: Patients with 22q11.2DS are medically complex and are at increased risk of OSA at baseline. Wide PPF surgery for severe VPD does not significantly increase risk of OSA. Careful perioperative planning is essential to optimize both speech and sleep outcomes. PMID: 31973553 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Conclusion: Treatment of nasal obstruction should be considered a crucial component in the comprehensive management plan for OSA patients as it has significant impact on the patients’ AHI and snoring.

Conclusion: The mentum-hyoid distance of patients with severe OSA was longer compared to the other OSA groups. These patients might have more benefit from the surgeries that have an impact on the position of the hyoid bone compared to other patients with OSA.

Summary: Pediatric obstructive sleep apnea, characterized by partial or complete obstruction of the upper airway during sleep, is associated with multiple adverse neurodevelopmental and cardiometabolic consequences. It is common in healthy children and occurs with a higher incidence among infants and children with craniofacial anomalies. Although soft-tissue hypertrophy is the most common cause, interplay between soft tissue and bone structure in children with craniofacial differences may also contribute to upper airway obstruction. Snoring and work of breathing are poor predictors of obstructive sleep apnea, and the gold ...

DiscussionObstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS) is defined as a “disorder of breathing during sleep characterized by prolonged partial upper airway obstruction and/or intermittent complete obstruction (obstructive apnea) that disrupts normal ventilation during sleep and normal sleep patterns.” It is different than primary snoring which is snoring without apnea, sleep arousals, or problems with gas exchange. OSAS symptoms include snoring (often with snorts, gasps or pauses), disturbed sleep (often frequent arousals) and daytime neurobehavioral problems. Sleepiness during the day can occur but is less common in...
