This study has provided estimates of the hyperelastic parameters of all upper airway soft tissues using fresh human tissue specimens for the first time. PMID: 32469719 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
CONCLUSIONS: Sleep disorders are common symptoms among hemodialysis patients. The restless legs syndrome occurs at a lower frequency among hemodialysis patients but is a major problem for them. PMID: 32468471 [PubMed - in process]

We present a 44-year-old man with adductor spasmodic dysphonia who was diagnosed as having upper airway obstruction in a polysomnographic examination during sleep after a botulinum toxin injection.
AbstractPurposeIncreased neck circumference is a major risk factor for obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). New data suggest that increased adipose tissue in the neck may be a contributory cause of OSA. The aim of this study was to investigate safety and efficacy of a recently developed injectable ice slurry in selective reduction of neck adipose tissue in a mouse model.MethodsWe used the New Zealand obese mice that have increased volume of anterior neck fat, and are commonly used in OSA studies. MRI imaging was used to measure changes in fat tissue volume.ResultsThirty animals were used in this study. Volumetric measurements in...
Objective: Intermittent hypoxia (IH)—a hallmark of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA)—enhances lung cancer progression in mice via altered host immune responses that are also age and sex-dependent. However, the interactions of menopause with IH on tumor malignant properties remain unexplored. Here, we aimed to investigate lung cancer outcomes in the context of ovariectomy (OVX)-induced menopause in a murine model of OSA. Methods: Thirty-four female mice (C57BL/6, 12-week-old) were subjected to bilateral OVX or to Sham intervention. Six months after surgery, mice were pre-exposed to either IH or room air (RA) fo...
AbstractPurpose of ReviewPrimary headaches are less common and differ in presentation in older versus younger individuals. Secondary headaches become more common among older patients.Recent FindingsDiagnosis and management of headaches in those> 65 years are discussed. Migraine and tension-type headaches are rarely new onset in this age group and should be a diagnosis of exclusion. In older individuals, migraine is more likely to be bilateral with less sensory sensitivities. Migraine aura may present without headache; careful assessment is needed to exclude stroke. Other primary headaches discussed include ...
CONCLUSION: According to our study, dogs cannot be used to screen for OSA in clinical settings, most likely due to the heterogenic nature of OSA. PMID: 32468236 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
