Publication date: December 2020Source: Japanese Dental Science Review, Volume 56, Issue 1Author(s): Kazumichi Sato, Tsuneya NakajimaSummaryThe purpose of this review was to present the currently available information on oral appliance (OA) therapy for dentists, especially clinic-based dentists, to aid them in performing this treatment for the management of symptoms of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). The clinical research evidence comprised of systematic reviews concerned with the mandibular advancement oral appliance (OAm). Continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) is superior to OA therapy in improving OSA symptoms. It is...

This study examines the interaction of multiple comorbidities, including anxiety, depression, chronic pain, and hernia characteristics with outcomes after OVHR.MethodsPatients with anxiety were identified in an existing, prospectively collected, data set of OVHR with preoperative work-up including CT scans (2007 –2018). A patient with a diagnosis or prescription for anxiolytics, anti-depressants, or narcotics was considered to have anxiety, depression, or chronic pain, respectively. Hernia characteristics were analyzed using 3D volumetric software. Univariate and multivariate analyses were performed to as sess for th...

This study lists the various anomalies on the basis of 504 references selected from a PubMed search in October 2018. RESULTS: The anomalies are grouped into three categories: anatomical anomalies: duodenal atresia and stenosis (3.9%), duodenal web and annular pancreas; aberrant right subclavian artery (12% of children with DS with cardiac anomaly); Hirschsprung's disease (2.76%); anorectal malformation (1.16%); congenital vascular malformations of the liver; orofacial cleft, bifid uvula (4.63%), and submucous orofacial cleft; esophageal atresia (0.5-0.9%); pyloric stenosis (0.3%); diaphragmatic hernia; malrotation of ...

Conclusions:OSA did not develop or worsen following primary palatoplasty. However, the oAHI increased by 5 or more events/h in approximately 20% of study participants. The presence of a syndrome was the only factor predictive of worsening OSA after palatoplasty. These findings suggest that palatoplasty does not worsen or cause OSA in most patients, and that nonsyndromic children are at low risk for the development or worsening of OSA.Citation:Bergeron M, Cohen AP, Maby A, Babiker HE, Pan BS, Ishman SL.

Authors: Cancienne JM, Brockmeier SF, Deasey MJ, Werner BC Abstract BACKGROUND: A few investigations exist which evaluate the influence of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) on complications after arthroscopic rotator cuff repair. METHODS: A database was queried for patients undergoing rotator cuff repair with and without OSA and further subdivided into those with and without a billing code for a continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) device. Thirty-day and 6-month adverse events were assessed. RESULTS: After regression analysis, patients with OSA had markedly increased emergency department visits and hospital admission (P

Conclusions Resuming PPV use after transsphenoidal surgery did not result in intracranial complications. However, delay in resuming PPV resulted in four patients requiring oxygen at home. We propose a preliminary PPV device management algorithm based on the size of the intraoperative CSF leak to facilitate future studies.

Conclusions Two, Not Mutually Exclusive, Hypotheses We have reviewed and organized the literature with the intent of showing the existing parallels between excessive fat accumulation and the aging process. We have categorized these reports following what have been proposed to be the nine hallmarks of aging (21) (Figure 1). Based on the evidence, two distinct hypotheses can be proposed. One is that the cellular responses provoked by an excess of nutrients cause obesity, and that obesity is responsible for accelerating the pace of aging. Supporting this hypothesis are the observations that knocking out the fat-specific ins...

Conclusion: Women had longer RTL and a higher step count compared to men. However, exercise volume and RTL correlated positively only in men. Surprisingly, age correlated negatively with RTL already within an age difference of 2 years. This suggests that telomere attrition rate may accelerate in older age. Moderate physical activity at the time of study was associated with RTL. Introduction Telomeres are looped structures located at the end of chromosomes, protecting our genomic DNA from degradation. Telomeric DNA consists of repetitive sequences of TTAGGG, common to all mammals (Aubert and Lansdorp, 2008). Double-...

Abstract Background: Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a common disease. It can cause many serious complications. OSA may increase the risk of hypertension. However, the exact mechanism of OSA causing hypertension is not fully understood. YKL-40/chitinase-3-like protein-1 plays an important role in vascular injury, repair, and generation. We sought to explore the role of YKL-40 in endothelial dysfunction and hypertension in OSA patients. Methods: All subjects were examined by polysomnography (PSG) and the expression of YKL-40 in the plasm of the subjects was measured by luminex. Carotid intima-media thickness ...
