Suspension palatoplasty, a new surgical technique to treat obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), has been developed to correct the retropalatal obstruction in patients with small tonsils (grade I/II) and anterior-posterior palatal (A-P) obstruction. The objecteive of this preliminary study was to investigate the effectiveness and change in retropalatal airway dimensions after suspension palatoplasty. This retrospective case series study included 25 consecutive male adults with OSA. Unique technical features of suspension palatoplasty are exposure of pterygomandibular raphe and suspension of palatopharyngeus muscle to the raphe...

Sleep related breathing disorders cause obstruction of the upper airway which can be alleviated by continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) therapy, oral devices or surgical intervention. Non-surgical treatment modalities are not always accepted by patients and in order to attain successful surgical outcomes, evaluation of the upper airway is necessary to carefully select the patients who would benefit from surgery. There are numerous techniques available to assess the upper airway obstruction and these include imaging, acoustic analysis, pressure transducer recording and endoscopic evaluation...

In some individuals with obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA), the palate prolapses into the velopharynx during expiration, limiting airflow through the nose or shunting it out of the mouth. We hypothesised that this phenomenon causes expiratory flow limitation (EFL) and is associated with inspiratory "isolated" palatal collapse. We also wanted to provide a robust noninvasive means to identify this mechanism of obstruction.Using natural sleep endoscopy, 1211 breaths from 22 OSA patients were scored as having or not having palatal prolapse...

BACKGROUND: Enlarged tonsils and adenoids are the major etiology of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) in children. Lymphatic hyperplasia is common to both OSA and celiac disease. We aimed to investigate the effect of a gluten-free diet on OSA symptoms in children with celiac disease. METHODS: Children with celiac disease aged 2-18 years were prospectively recruited before the initiation of a gluten-free diet. Children with negative celiac serology who underwent gastrointestinal endoscopies for other indications served as controls...

OBJECTIVE: Snoring can be excited in different locations within the upper airways during sleep. It was hypothesised that the excitation locations are correlated with distinct acoustic characteristics of the snoring noise. To verify this hypothesis, a database of snore sounds is developed, labelled with the location of sound excitation. METHODS: Video and audio recordings taken during drug induced sleep endoscopy (DISE) examinations from three medical centres have been semi-automatically screened for snore events, which subsequently have been classified by ENT experts into four classes based on the VOTE classification...

A population of appropriately selected patients does not respond, or does not achieve cure, with hypoglossal nerve stimulation (HGNS). We describe the case of nonresponder whose obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) resolved with the addition of chin strap. After initial placement and titration of HGNS implant, follow-up sleep study demonstrated persistent moderate OSA. Drug-induced sleep endoscopy demonstrated supraglottic collapse with activate neurostimulation. With mouth closure and change of stimulation settings to unipolar from bipolar, the airway collapse and desaturations improved...
