OBJECTIVE To determine the predictors affecting treatment outcome after application of the mandibular advancement device (MAD). DESIGN Retrospective analysis. SETTING Tertiary care university hospital. PATIENTS A total of 76 patients (68 men and 8 women) who were treated with the MAD for obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) were included from September 2005(More)
After functional endoscopic sinus surgery (FESS), nasal packing may be necessary and a packing material which has benefits in both cost and efficacy would be required. This study aimed to determine the efficacy of Gelfoam packing on hemostasis and wound healing after FESS. Patients who underwent bilateral FESS due to chronic bilateral rhinosinusitis were(More)
PURPOSE Peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor γ (PPAR-γ) has been shown to play an important role in the control of inflammatory responses acting on macrophages, mast cells, T cells and eosinophils. A novel PPAR-γ ligand, KR62980 have been recently focused on due to the lower undesirable effects than other PPAR-γ ligands such as rosiglitazone and(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate retrospectively the efficacy of the mandibular advancement device (MAD) in patients with obstructive sleep apnea in terms of positional dependency. DESIGN Retrospective analysis. SETTING Academic tertiary referral center. PATIENTS One hundred patients with obstructive sleep apnea treated with the MAD at the Department of(More)
The apnea–hypopnea index (AHI) is closely related with the severity of daytime sleepiness, but excessive daytime sleepiness (EDS) is not presented on all patients with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). It is unclear why daytime sleepiness is not always present in OSA patients even if their sleep is disrupted from the perspective of polysomnographic findings.(More)
BACKGROUND It has been well known that pediatric allergic rhinitis was associated with poor performance at school due to attention deficit. However, there were no cohort studies for the effect of treatment of allergic rhinitis on attention performance in pediatric population. Thus, the aim of this study was to investigate whether attention performance was(More)
The purposes of this study were to evaluate clinical outcome of mandibular advancement device (MAD) for obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) patients and to estimate influencing factors on MAD effect. From the patients who were diagnosed as OSA by polysomnography at Seoul National University Bundang Hospital from January 2007 to February 2009, the patients who(More)
Here, we studied the IFN-regulated innate immune response against influenza A virus (IAV) infection in the mouse lung and the therapeutic effect of IFN-λ2/3 in acute IAV lung infection. For viral infections, IAV (WS/33, H1N1, PR8 H1N1, H5N1) were inoculated into wild-type mice by intranasal delivery, and IAV mRNA level and viral titer were measured. To(More)
OBJECTIVES/HYPOTHESIS Sleep videofluoroscopy (SVF) has been introduced to identify upper airway obstruction. This study was aimed to determine the interrater reliability of SVF in patients with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). STUDY DESIGN A retrospective analysis. METHODS On the basis of apnea-hypopnea index in full-night attended polysomnography, 374(More)
BACKGROUND The optimal chemotherapy regimen for the treatment of olfactory neuroblastoma has not been clearly defined. The purpose of the current study was to evaluate the efficacy of neoadjuvant chemotherapy with the combination of etoposide, ifosfamide, and cisplatin (VIP) for patients with olfactory neuroblastoma. METHODS Eleven consecutive patients(More)
