Upper airway obstruction during sleep can trigger compensatory neuromuscular responses and/or prolong inspiration in order to maintain adequate minute ventilation. The aim of this study was to investigate the strength of these compensatory responses during upper airway obstruction during propofol anesthesia. We assessed respiratory timing and upper airway(More)
Talar head fractures are rare injuries. We present a 26-year-old man with malunion of the talar head. The displaced fracture was initially neglected. The patient was treated with osteotomy and bone grafting to improve the congruity and movement of the talonavicular joint. Three months after surgery, he returned to his pre-injury activity level with no(More)
We present a case of tarsal tunnel syndrome caused by an amyloidoma arising from the talocalcaneal joint in a 64-year-old man with a long history of haemodialysis. He presented with numbness in the medial plantar area of the right foot without any antecedent trauma. The numbness was minimal at rest but gradually worsened, causing difficulty, when walking.(More)
The coordination between nasal breathing and non-nutritive swallowing serves as a protective reflex against potentially asphyxiating material, i.e. saliva and secretions, entering the respiratory tract. Although this protective reflex is influenced by positional changes in the head and body, the effect of mandible position on this reflex is not fully(More)
