In epidemiologic studies focused on adults, obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) has higher prevalence in men than in women. The evidence supporting a gender-related discrepant prevalence of OSA is however much more tenuous in children. Here, we aimed to review the evidence concerning gender- based differences in the prevalence of OSA in children, and if so, to examine the evidence with the intent to identify potential factors that may account for this putative association. Gender-based perception and reporting of clinical manifestations of OSA may be modulated by several social and cultural factors in children...

BACKGROUND: A possible association between periodontitis and obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) has been suggested. The aim of this study was to compare periodontitis prevalence between control and OSA patients by assessing clinical periodontal parameters and the levels of gingival crevicular fluid (GCF) interleukin-1 beta (IL-1β), tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF-α), high-sensitive C-reactive protein (hs-CRP) and serum hs-CRP. METHODS: A case-control study was performed that included 163 individuals: 83 individuals (18 females; 65 males) with OSA and 80 non-OSA individuals (23 females; 57 males) as controls...

Ms. C, a 20-year-old female was referred for a sleep evaluation for hypersomnia. She reported increasing sleepiness over a period of one year. She described a pattern of retiring to bed at 2000 hours with an initial sleep latency of 10 minutes. She would sleep uninterrupted until 0630 hours and wake to an alarm clock. She avoided napping during the day. Her history was otherwise not suggestive of narcolepsy or sleep apnea. She was not on any medications and had a medical history significant only for celiac sprue...

RATIONALE: Prior research found that individual-level environmental and social indicators did not explain the racial disparity in obstructive sleep apnea syndrome. Neighborhood socioeconomic variables, risk factors for a range of adverse behavioral and health outcomes, may better explain this racial disparity and help identify modifiable intervention targets. OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the associations of neighborhood socioeconomic variables with obstructive sleep apnea severity and to assess whether the neighborhood variables explain the association between race and obstructive sleep apnea severity...

INTRODUCTION: Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a male-predominant condition, characterized by repeated upper-airway collapse with continued diaphragmatic efforts during sleep, and is accompanied by severe physiological consequences. Multiple morphological aspects, including epiglottis cross-sectional area (CSA) and oropharyngeal airway length (OPAL), can contribute to airway collapsibility in the condition. This study focused on the effects of OSA severity, sex, and race on OPA dimensions...

BACKGROUND: Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is the most common sleep disorder affecting 2-4 % of the adult population. In addition to several potential mechanisms, inflammation is one of the suggested etiological factors in OSA. Fractalkine/CX3CL1 which is detected in activated or stressed endothelium, smooth muscle cells, skeletal muscle cells, macrophages, neurons, and hepatocytes is an inflammatory marker and attracts attention of sleep specialists in OSA pathogenesis. In this study, we had two goals...

Sleep bruxism and higher clench index have been associated with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). However, there is no study that reports on the prosthetic complications in patients with OSA. Patients' records, who had performed a sleep study to diagnose OSA, were examined for the occurrence of prosthetic complications in implant-borne reconstructions. The primary outcome was the frequency of prosthetic complications. The secondary outcomes were anthropometric data, the type of the complication, type of the prosthesis, type of retention, number of supporting implants, number of prosthetic units, and the presence of obstructive sleep apnea...
