Objective: To assess palatine tonsil size relative to degree of obesity in children with sleep-disordered breathing (SDB). Study Design: Case-control study. Setting: Tertiary care rhinology clinic. Subjects and Methods: We compared the subjective and objective tonsil size, including tonsil height (TH), tonsil width (TW), tonsil thickness (TT), tonsil weight (TWt), and tonsil volume (TV), in 26 obese children and 26 age- and gender-matched control children with SDB, and in 29 overweight children… Expand

TLDR
This study aims to answer relevant and practical questions facing pediatric otolaryngology surgeons treating adenotonsillar hypertrophy for the relief of obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS) by suggesting that larger palatine tonsils may have a greater effect on upper airway obstruction in obese children with sleep-disordered breathing (SDB).

Sonographic measurement of palatine tonsil volume in children and comparison with actual volume
TLDR
To compare the palatine tonsil (PT) volume measured with transcervical ultrasonography (TCU) in children with the actual volume to research the correlation with tonsillectomy indications, a total of 67 children, 37 boys and 30 girls, aged from 3-17 years who underwent bilateral tonsilslectomy are compared.

TLDR
Transcervical ultrasonography can be an accurate, safe, cheap, non-invasive and accessible measure for evaluation of the size of tonsils objectively and there were strongly positive correlations between age, BMI and palatine tonsil size in healthy children. Expand
Childhood Obesity and Sleep-related Breathing Disorders
TLDR
It does not appear that the group of children with sleep breathing disorders presents higher rates of obesity, nor does obesity influence its presentation clinically, and these results should not be an obstacle for being attentive to the possible association of respiratory disease to obesity and its negative consequences. Expand
Urinary leukotriene E4, obesity, and adenotonsillar hypertrophy in Chinese children with sleep disordered breathing.
TLDR
The magnitude of inflammation as reflected by urinary LTE(4) is significantly related to the severity of SDB and obesity, and a correlation between LTE( 4) concentration and adenotonsillar size is present only among nonobese children. Expand
Urine cysteinyl leukotriene levels in children with sleep disordered breathing before and after adenotonsillectomy.
TLDR
Adenotonsillectomy remains an effective treatment for SDB children that not only alleviated the severity of SDB and improved quality of life; it also decreased levels of the systemic inflammatory marker, uLTE4; benefits were more obvious in non-obese children. Expand
Obstructive Sleep Apnea-Hypopnea Syndrome in Children: Beyond Adenotonsillar Hypertrophy
TLDR
The prevalence of obstructive sleep apnea-hypopnea syndrome in each pathology and the reasons that cause it, as well as their interactions and management, are organized in a consistent manner. Expand
The Association Between ENT Diseases and Obesity in Pediatric Population: A Systemic Review of Current Knowledge
TLDR
It is suggested that obese children are more prone to suffer from otorhinolaryngological illnesses than theLean children, and constitutes a significant component of “OSA, obesity, asthma” triad. Expand
Peri-operative management of overweight and obese children and adolescents.
TLDR
This Review aims to provide up-to-date information on peri-operative management for physicians who are caring for children and adolescents who are overweight or obese undergoing surgery, including bariatric surgery, particularly on the physiological consequences of obesity-namely, obstructive sleep apnoea, respiratory compromise, and pharmacological considerations.

Palatine Tonsil Size and its Correlation with Subjective Tonsil Size in Patients with Sleep-Disordered Breathing

TLDR
Although there is a statistical correlation in children between TTV and subjective tonsil size, there is significant discordance in size 2 and 3 groups, thus greatly limiting the value of subjective tonsillar size assessment in the majority of children. Expand
A controlled study of sleep related disordered breathing in obese children
TLDR
Results suggest that obese children are at increased risk of obstructive SDB; the presence of any pharyngeal lymphoid tissue enlargement in obese children should therefore be aggressively managed. Expand
The correlation among obesity, apnea-hypopnea index, and tonsil size in children.
TLDR
Degree of obesity as measured by BMI Z score and tonsil size are significantly related to severity of OSA as reflected by the AHI, although the correlation is mild. Expand
Outcome of Adenotonsillectomy for Obstructive Sleep Apnea in Obese and Normal-Weight Children

TLDR
Both groups show a dramatic improvement in AHI after adenotonsillectomy, but persistent OSA is more common in obese children than in normal-weight children with OSA. Expand
Obesity and persisting sleep apnea after adenotonsillectomy in Greek children.
TLDR
Obesity does not necessarily predict an unfavorable outcome of AT as treatment for SDB, and the presence of obesity, adenoidal or tonsillar hypertrophy, gender, and postoperative BMI change were not significant predictors of SDB cure. Expand
Adiposity in relation to age as predictor of severity of sleep apnea in children with snoring
TLDR
Among children with habitual snoring, adiposity does not predict severity of obstructive sleep-disordered breathing in early childhood probably due to the prominent role of adenotonsillar hypertrophy, however, it may have a more important contribution to severity of SDB in older children. Expand
Sites and sizes of fat deposits around the pharynx in obese patients with obstructive sleep apnoea and weight matched controls.
TLDR
This study shows that more fat is present in those areas surrounding the collapsable segment of the pharynx in patients with OSA, compared to equally obese control subjects without OSA. Expand
Evaluation of pulmonary function and polysomnography in obese children and adolescents
TLDR
It is concluded that obese children and adolescents have a high prevalence of sleep‐disordered breathing, although in many cases it is mild. Expand
Adenoid size is related to severity but not the number of episodes of obstructive apnea in children.
TLDR
Lymphoid hyperplasia affects the severity of apnea more than the number of obstructive apneas, and the pathophysiologic characteristics of OSA in children probably involve complex interactions between pharyngeal size and mechanics. Expand

TLDR
A clinical staging system for SDB based on palate position, tonsil size, and body mass index is presented and appears to be a valuable predictor of the success of UPPP. Expand
