Effects of nasal surgery and tonsillectomy on sleep apnea

, : Effects of nasal surgery and tonsillectomy on sleep apnea. Bulletin Europeen de Physiopathologie Respiratoire 19(6): 612-615

Twenty-three adults with moderate to severe sleep apnea syndrome (SAS) and positive ENT obstructive findings were treated by either tonsillectomy or by submucosal resection (SMR). Fourteen of the 23 patients (60.8%), 5 of the 7 who underwent tonsillectomy and 9 of the 16 treated by SMR, reported on a clinical improvement in the quality of their nocturnal sleep and diurnal hypersomnolence. Post-treatment polyhypnographic recordings in all responding patients disclosed significantly less apneas and waking within sleep.

When silicone regeneration chambers are implanted empty, axonal regeneration fails if the interstump gap length is greater than 10 mm. Previous experiments using the 10-mm gap model demonstrated that regeneration success correlated with the dimens...

The relative contributions of parenchymal cells and non-parenchymal (sinusoidal) cells to the in vivo hepatic uptake of chylomicron remnants was measured 30 min after intravenous injection into rats. The chylomicron remnants were labeled with [3H]...

Cardiac surgery through a thoracotomy using one-lung ventilation (OLV) is thought to be associated with worse postoperative pulmonary gas exchange than sternotomy using two-lung ventilation (TLV), but this has not been confirmed yet. We, therefore...
