Authors: Ungar OJ, Rosenzweig E, Betito HR, Cavel O, Oron Y, Handzel O Abstract BACKGROUND: Defining the risk factors for Eustachian tube dysfunction can facilitate its prevention. It is hypothesised that Eustachian tube dysfunction as measured by the Eustachian Tube Dysfunction Questionnaire-7 is associated with obstructive sleep apnoea syndrome. METHODS: The questionnaire was systematically translated into Hebrew and validated in the accepted manner. This questionnaire was applied to obstructive sleep apnoea syndrome patients before and after expansion sphincter pharyngoplasty, in pre-set time intervals. The ...

Authors: Jen R, Orr JE, Li Y, DeYoung P, Smales E, Malhotra A, Owens RL Abstract The co-existence of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), termed the overlap syndrome (OVS), is associated with adverse outcomes that may be reversed with treatment. However, diagnosis is limited by the apparent need for in-laboratory polysomnography (PSG). WatchPAT is a portable diagnostic device that is validated for the diagnosis of OSA that might represent an attractive tool for the diagnosis of OVS.Subjects with established COPD were recruited from a general population. Subjects underwent ...

CONCLUSIONS: Buccinator re-repair (Bs + Re: IVVP) has been shown to be an effective and safe procedure in treating difficult postpalatoplasty velopharyngeal incompetence. It was also shown that it is still a physiological nonobstructive procedure with low morbidity. PMID: 31973560 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

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]

AbstractPurposeTo investigate the possible changes in retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) by optic coherence tomography and in the amplitudes and peak times (PTs) in pattern visual evoked potential (pVEP) and to compare them in obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS).MethodsThis prospective study included patients with mild OSAS (n = 30), severe OSAS (n = 30), and 30 control subjects. All patients were assessed after obtaining the approval from our hospital’s ethics committee.ResultsThere was no difference in age and gender between the groups (p = 0.184,p = 0.954)....

Abstract BACKGROUND: Cardiovascular diseases (CVDs) are highly prevalent in obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), and dyslipidemia is an important factor. Atherogenic index of plasma (AIP, log[TG/HDL-C]) and apolipoproteinB to apolipoproteinAI ratio (apoB/apoAI ratio) are considered high quality predictors of cardiovascular risk. However, the associations between OSA severity and AIP and apoB/apoAI ratio remained unclear. METHODS: A retrospective study was performed in 284 patients. Subjects were assessed with polysomnography (PSG) test, and OSA severity was defined by AHI. Data collected included anthropometric mea...
