Is obstructive sleep apnoea associated with hypoxaemia and prolonged ICU stay after type A aortic dissection repair? A retrospective study in Chinese population
Although obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA) is prevalent among patients with aortic dissection, its prognostic impact is not yet determined in patients undergoing major vascular surgery. We aimed to investigate th...
CONCLUSION: Bariatric surgery is feasible in patients with SSO. Revision procedures may increase risk of operative complications.PMID:34248332 | PMC:PMC8241285 | DOI:10.4293/JSLS.2020.00089
Chronic intermittent hypoxia (CIH) is the prominent signature of highly prevalent obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) pathophysiology, which leads to increased risk and aggravation of atherosclerotic cardiovascular diseases. However, whether intestinal microbiota is implicated in the mechanisms linking CIH to arteriosclerosis (AS) pathogenesis remains unclear. The association of CIH with the development of altered gut microbiota (GM) may provide the opportunity to develop preventive strategies for atherosclerotic cardiovascular risk reduction. Animal models of apolipoprotein E-deficient (apoE-/-) mice treated with high-fat ...
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
ConclusionsUtilization of a vomer flap during cleft palate repair did not have a statistically significant effect on the presence or severity of OSAS.Level of evidence: Level IV, risk/prognostic study.
In conclusion, airway pressure treatment and adherence are independently associated with lower odds of incident AD diagnoses in older adults. Results suggest that treatment of OSA may reduce risk of subsequent dementia.
Conclusion: Increased levels of IH accelerated the increase in vasoactive factors in peripheral blood, thereby mobilizing a large number of EPCs. Increasing of IH diminished the mobilization, chemotactic and angiogenetic ability of EPCs.PMID:33678107 | DOI:10.1080/01902148.2021.1891355
