  1. The cyclic alternating pattern demonstrates increased sleep instability and correlates with fatigue and sleepiness in adults with upper airw...

    Sleep 30(5):641 (2007) PMID 17552380

    To clarify the relationship between sleep instability and subjective complaints in patients with upper airway resistance syndrome (UARS).
  2. Improvement in sleep apnea associated with closure of a patent foramen ovale.

    Journal of clinical sleep medicine : JCSM : off... 3(3):295 (2007) PMID 17561600 PMCID 2564778

  3. Objective benefit of laser palatoplasty for non-apnoeic snoring.

    Clinical Otolaryngology 24(4):335 (1999) PMID 10472470

    We report measurements of snoring in a prospective study of LPP, and we compare the results with a previous study of uvulopalatopharyngoplasty (UPPP). Twenty patients with an apnoea/hypopnoea index < 20 h-1 underwent LPP for habitual snoring. Overnight sound recordings were compared before and 6 mon...
  4. Efficacy of laser-assisted uvulopalatoplasty.

    Lasers in Surgery and Medicine 21(2):109 (1997) PMID 9261787

    Our results indicate a significant reduction of snoring in patients without OSA, but diminishing success in patients with increasing degrees of OSA. Additionally, LAUP was not efficacious in treating OSA: pre-op respiratory disturbance index (RDI) of 10.8 vs. post-op RDI of 19.5 for mild OSA (P = 0....
  5. [A study on risk factors of cerebral hemorrhage in women].

    No to shinkei = Brain and nerve 46(12):1143 (1994) PMID 7893531

    We conducted a 1:1 pair matched case-control study on 98 women with cerebral hemorrhage diagnosed by CT scan of the head and the same number of controls. Single factor analysis revealed that a high body mass index (BMI) increased the risk of cerebral hemorrhage (p < 0.05). Multiple conditional logis...
  6. Controversies in sleep-related breathing disorders.

    Lung 164(1):17 (1986) PMID 3081768

  7. Sectioning the hyoid bone as a therapeutic approach for obstructive sleep apnea.

    Sleep 7(1):77 (1984) PMID 6718927

    We decided to perform a medial resection of the hyoid bone in OSAS patients. The procedure is similar to that performed for ductus thyreoglossus. To date, three patients have undergone the operation under anesthesia. The two cases have been followed for several months (the third underwent surgery on...
  8. Mandibular osteotomy and hyoid bone advancement for obstructive sleep apnea: a case report.

    Sleep 7(1):79 (1984) PMID 6718928

    A 24-year-old man with obstructive sleep apnea syndrome and secondary daytime somnolence and nocturnal arrhythmias underwent palatopharyngoplasty. When he did not improve significantly, he underwent a new surgical procedure combining hyoid bone and mandibular horizontal sliding osteotomy.
  9. Snoring source identification and snoring noise prediction

    Journal of Biomechanics 40(4):10 (2007) PMID 16737702

    This paper investigates the snoring mechanism of humans by applying the concept of structural intensity to a three-dimensional (3D) finite element model of a human head, which includes: the upper part of the head, neck, soft palate, hard palate, tongue, nasal cavity and the surrounding walls of the...
  10. The role of cardiac and vascular components in blood pressure variability during voluntary apnea in snoring subjects.

    Journal of Physiology and Pharmacology 57 Suppl 4:359 (2006) PMID 17072065

    We conclude that activation of carotid chemoreceptors during voluntary apnea evokes a greater cardiovascular response in snorers, related to the reflex increase in total peripheral vascular resistance, and, consequently, a greater increase in blood pressure....
