Increased awareness that changes in sleeping habits and daytime behaviour may be attributable to obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS) has led many patients to seek both information and definitive treatment. The purpose of this article is to provide information to dentists that will enable them to identify patients who may have OSAS and to assist these patients in making informed decisions regarding treatment options. In patients who have identifiable anatomic abnormalities of the maxilla and…

Mandibular Advancement Device for Obstructive Sleep Apnea: A Clinical Note
TLDR
In this clinical report, MAD successfully improved of symptom related OSA as noted by improved AI and RDI scores as well as his health.
Neuromuscular Alterations of Upper Airway Muscles in Patients with OSAS: Radiological and Histopathological Findings
TLDR
This article reviews studies of upper airway muscles in humans, observed in patients with obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS), and up to date results on histopathology of the muscles across with nervous lesions are reviewed.
Obstructive Sleep Apnea OSA detection through esophageal Pressure Pes
TLDR
A new approach to control the occurrence of OSA based on esophageal pressure parameter is presented and an efficient algorithm to process the signal in real-time to detect apnea episodes is developed.

TLDR
Individuals with obstructive sleep apnea may experience interrupted sleep with frequent awakenings and loud snoring, which can lead to daytime sleepiness and fatigue, impaired attention and memory, headaches, depression, and sexual dysfunction.
Obese patients with obstructive sleep apnoea syndrome show a peculiar alteration of the corticotroph but not of the thyrotroph and lactotroph function
TLDR
Evaluation of anterior pituitary function to corticotroph, thyrotroph and lactotroph secretion under dynamic testing in OSAS in comparison with simply obese and normal subjects is extended.
BRITISH BIOMEDICAL BULLETIN
TLDR
Information is provided to dentists that will enable them to identify patients who may have OSA and to assist these patients in making informed decisions regarding treatment options, supported by the evidence showing high success rates when orthognathic surgery is utilised to treat obstructive sleep apnea.
The influence of orthognathic surgery on ventilation during sleep.
Respiratory and Endothelial Dysfunctions in Case of Obstructive Sleep Apnea-Hypopnea Syndrome
TLDR
A cross-sectional study on 49 adult subjects, 23 suffering from OSAHS and 26 obese controls, evaluating endothelium dependent vasodilatation (VDED) upon the combination of acetylcholine iontophoresis and blood flowmeter by Laser Doppler.
The Choice between Mandibular Advancement Devices and Bite Openers for Treatment of Obstructive Sleep Apnea Patients
TLDR
Evaluated mandibular advancement devices are capable of achieving better results than BOs regarding AHI, while both appliances can achieve comparably equal results regarding SI, and it is recommended to use MADs adjusted at 50% advancement rather than 75% to minimize the possible side effects and the possible extra annoyance that may happen.
The Ventilatory and Diffusion Dysfunctions in Obese Patients with and without Obstructive Sleep Apnea-Hypopnea Syndrome
TLDR
Analyzing the ventilatory and alveolar-capillary diffusion dysfunctions in case of obesity with or without an OSAS found obesity when associated with OSAS increases the severity of pulmonary function and alvesolar- capillary diffusion alteration.
