Retropharyngeal airway has no change in volume, but that morphological findings manifest change after uvulopalatopharyngoplasty
Introduction: Recently, imaging study in obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS) has been improving on detection of severity and its classification. Some researchers focused on imaging study that describe pharyngeal morphology in patients with OSAS. Materials and methods: We report on the changes of upper airway volume in patient with OSAS before and after uvulopalatopharyngoplasty (UPPP) with the use of three-dimensional ... Read more

Possible effect of periodic limb movements during sleep on the sleepiness of patients with sleep disordered breathing
We aimed to conduct a cross-sectional study in order to investigate the effect of periodic limb movements during sleep (PLMS) on daytime sleepiness in patients with sleep disordered breathing especially those with obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS), diagnosed by polysomnography (PSG). Our subjects included 233 male patients who visited our institute during the 25-month period between June 2012 and June ... Read more
