Nasopharyngeal Width and Its Association With Sleep-Disordered Breathing Symptoms in Children.

Clin Exp Otorhinolaryngol 2019 Mar 6. Epub 2019 Mar 6.

Department of Otorhinolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery, Seoul National University Bundang Hospital, Seoul National University College of Medicine, Seongnam, Korea.

Objectives: Although adenotonsillar hypertrophy is the main cause of sleep-disordered breathing in children, surrounding anatomic factors, such as the width of the nasopharynx, can affect upper airway patency. However, there have been no reports of the association of nasopharyngeal width with sleep-disordered breathing in children. This study was undertaken to measure nasopharyngeal width in children undergoing adenotonsillectomy for sleep-disordered breathing and to investigate the clinical implications of this factor.

Authors:
Hsueh-Yu Li

Sleep Med Clin 2019 Mar 30;14(1):51-58. Epub 2018 Nov 30.

Department of Otolaryngology, Chang Gung Memorial Hospital, 333, No 5, Fushing Street, Gueishan Shiang, Taoyuan, Taiwan. Electronic address:

Although continuous positive airway pressure is the first-line and gold-standard management for obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), surgery is the only mainstream treatment without the use of a device. Palatal surgery is the paragon and core value among various sleep surgeries in treating snoring and OSA. It has transformed from radical excision to functional reconstruction. Read More

Department of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery, Chonnam National University Medical School and Chonnam National University Hospital, Gwangju, South Korea.

Introduction: To overcome the limited readability of the conventional drug induced sleep endoscopy (DISE) system which only records flexible endoscopy images, we devised the Multimodality DISE System (MDS). MDS encompasses the monitoring systems for oxygen saturation, electrocardiogram, blood pressure, snoring intensity, and patient's position. It enabled to record comprehensive situation of patients who underwent DISE. Read More

Sleep-disordered breathing and reaction time in children.

Med Devices (Auckl) 2018 12;11:413-417. Epub 2018 Dec 12.

Department of Anesthesiology & Pain Medicine, Nationwide Children's Hospital, Columbus, OH, USA,

Background: The incidence of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) and sleep-disordered breathing (SDB) in children exceeds the availability of polysomnography (PSG) to definitively diagnose OSA and identify children at higher risk of perioperative complications. As sleep deficits are associated with slower reaction times (RTs), measuring RT may be a cost-effective approach to objectively identify SDB symptoms.

Aim: The aim of this study is to compare RT on a standard 10-minute psychomotor vigilance test (PVT) based on children's history of OSA/SDB. Read More

Department of Otolaryngology, Policlinico Universitario Paolo Giaccone, Palermo, Italy.

 Obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS) is a sleep disorder caused by an excessive narrowing of the pharyngeal airway that also collapses during inspiration, with an important role played by the lateral pharyngeal wall in the development of the obstruction.  To describe our surgical experience with modified expansion sphincter pharyngoplasty (MESP) in the management of lateral collapse in upper airway multilevel surgery.  A total of 20 patients with moderate to severe OSAS were recruited in the Ear, Nose and Throat (ENT) Department of the University of Palermo, Italy.

Our objective in this study was to assess the long-term outcomes of palatal implantations from objective as well as subjective perspectives when applied to patients with severe obstructive sleep apnea and prominent retropalatal collapse.

Methods: This retrospective review was conducted in a single institution using subjective data (Epworth Sleepiness Scale and visual analog scales of snoring sounds and sleep quality) and objective data (respiratory disturbance index, minimum O saturation, sleep efficiency, and snoring index using a polysomnograph) before and after surgery.

Pediatr Radiol 2018 08 4;48(9):1223-1233. Epub 2018 Aug 4.

Department of Radiology, Stanford University, Stanford, CA, USA.

Sleep-disordered breathing has a spectrum of severity that spans from snoring and partial airway collapse with increased upper airway resistance, to complete upper airway obstruction with obstructive sleep apnea during sleeping. While snoring occurs in up to 20% of children, obstructive sleep apnea affects approximately 1-5% of children. The obstruction that occurs in obstructive sleep apnea is the result of the airway collapsing during sleep, which causes arousal and impairs restful sleep. Read More
