BACKGROUND Marfan's syndrome is associated with a high prevalence of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). As this syndrome is associated with a characteristic constricted maxilla and high-arched palate, we reasoned that nasal airway constriction and resultant high nasal airway resistance (NAR) may contribute to the development of OSA. Therefore, the aim of this study was to measure NAR in patients with Marfan's syndrome. In addition, we aimed to examine the influence of maxillary morphology on both… CONTINUE READING
