Most patients with obstructive sleep apnea experience increased pharyngeal collapsibility which predisposes them to upper airway occlusion during sleep. Some patients with or without a higher-than-normal collapsibility may present other causes of sleep apnea syndrome. This article will focus on the parapharyngeal tumors leading to obstructive sleep apnea(More)
Hearing processing and communication abilities development may be influenced by chronic inflammation of the airways in children, especially in case of otitis media and/or adenotonsillar hypertrophy. The present review summarizes the influence of adenotonsillar hypertrophy on speech abilities as well as the consequences of otitis media, with a particular(More)

PATIENTS AND METHOD Over a 36-months period (from 1999 to 2001), seven children underwent endoscopic endonasal repair of an unilateral choanal atresia using the microdebrider (powered instrumentation). At the end of the procedure,(More)
Adenotonsillar hypertrophy is a common paediatric/otolaryngological disorder that may be associated with secondary growth or facial growth impairment, sleep disturbances, neurocognitive deficits, or smell loss. Surgical removal of the hypertrophic tissue eliminates the mechanical obstacle of the airways and is therefore curative in most cases. The purpose(More)
Grafting is one of the current range of instruments that rhinoplasticians deploy to achieve durable and desired aesthetic and functional outcomes.
