We analyzed the role of sleep position in obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS). The polysomnograms of 120 patients with sleep apnea syndrome were analyzed. We associated the apnea hypopnea index (AHI) of the supine position with the AHI of the other positions. Patients were stratified in a group of positional patients (PP) (AHI supine ≥ 2 × AHI other(More)
We assessed adverse events and complications of bipolar radiofrequency induced thermotherapy of the tongue base (RFTB) in patients with socially unacceptable snoring (SUS) or obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS) and determine its acceptance and effectiveness when conducted under local anesthesia. This investigation consisted of (1) a prospective,(More)
In a retrospective cohort study, we evaluated whether improvements in nasal continuous positive airway pressure (nCPAP) technology, particularly the introduction of automatic adjustment of the nCPAP pressure (auto-CPAP), have led to better acceptance and (long-term) compliance in patients with obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS) as compared to earlier(More)
We evaluated the surgical results of a one tempo multilevel surgical approach of the upper airway to treat patients with obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS) in a prospective case series. Twenty-two patients with OSAS and obstruction at both palatinal and tongue base level, as assessed by sleep endoscopy, underwent UPPP, RFTB, HS with or without GA in(More)
