Contributions of the Melanopsin-Expressing Ganglion Cells, Cones, and Rods to the Pupillary Light Response in Obstructive Sleep Apnea.
(Invest Ophthalmol Vis Sci. 2019 Jul 1;60(8):3002-3012. doi: 10.1167/iovs.19-26944., 2019-07)
PURPOSE: To investigate the impact of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) on the contribution of inner and outer retinal photoreceptors to the pupillary light response (PLR). METHODS: Ninety-three eyes from 27 patients with OSA ...
Palatopharyngeus muscle: the key in the pharyngoplasty surgeries for obstructive sleep apnea
(Braz J Otorhinolaryngol. 2019 Jul - Aug;85(4):397-398. doi: 10.1016/j.bjorl.2019.04.001., 2019-08)
Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a highly prevalent disease about which we still have little knowledge. Its pathophysiology is complex, involving multiple anatomic and functional mechanisms. CPAP (Continuous Positive Airway ...
Revaluing the role of the tongue in obstructive sleep apnea
(J Bras Pneumol. 2019 Sep 5;45(4):e20190208. doi: 10.1590/1806-3713/e20190208., 2019-09)
Since the earliest descriptions of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), researchers have been struggling to determine the location and pattern of airway collapse in this disease. From the early general notion of upper airway ...
Comparative study on liposomal amphotericin B and other therapies in the treatment of mucosal leishmaniasis: A 15-year retrospective cohort study
(PLoS One. 2019 Jun 26;14(6):e0218786. doi: 10.1371/journal.pone.0218786., 2019-06)
BACKGROUND: Liposomal amphotericin B (L-AMB) has been used for mucosal leishmaniasis (ML), but comparative studies on L-AMB and other drugs used for the treatment of ML have not been conducted. The present study aimed to ...
Cephalometric and Pharyngometric Evaluation in Snoring Children with Sleep-Disordered Breathing and Adenotonsillar Hypertrophy Under an Orthodontic or Orthopedic Treatment
(J Child Sci. 2019;9:e68–e74. doi: 10.1055/s-0039-1692987, 2019-06)
Altered craniofacial growth has been implicated in sleep-disordered breathing (SDB) in children. The authors aimed to evaluate the cephalometric measurements and pharyngeal dimensions related to SDB in snoring children ...
Fundamental Frequency in Excised Human Larynges after Anterior Glottic Web Formation of Various Extents.
(Otolaryngol Head Neck Surg. 2019 Apr;160(4):672-678. Doi: 10.1177/0194599818813007, 2019-04)
OBJECTIVE: To determine the effect of vocal fold anterior web formation on fundamental frequency with a cadaveric excised larynx model. STUDY DESIGN: Experimental study with excised human larynges. Setting: Academic ...
Effects of diode laser setting for laryngeal surgery in a rabbit model
(Eur Arch Otorhinolaryngol. 2019 May;276(5):1431-1438. doi: 10.1007/s00405-019-05344-5., 2019-05)
PURPOSE: To study the damaging effect of different diode laser settings on vocal folds 7 days after injury in a rabbit model. METHODS: Twenty-one male New Zealand white rabbits were randomized into three groups with seven ...
LwPTL: a novel classification for upper airway collapse in sleep endoscopies.
(Braz J Otorhinolaryngol. 2019 May - Jun;85(3):379-387. doi: 10.1016/j.bjorl.2019.01.010., 2019-05)
INTRODUCTION: There is no consensus on a single classification system for the obstructive findings in drug-induced sleep endoscopy. Previous classification systems have neglected to address the upper retropalatal obstruction, ...
Isolated Paresis of Laryngeal Adduction: What Are the Laryngoscopic and Stroboscopic Findings?
(Laryngoscope. 2019 Apr;129(4):919-925. doi: 10.1002/lary.27414, 2019-04)
OBJECTIVES/HYPOTHESIS: This study aimed to describe the videolaryngostroboscopic (VLS) findings in a cohort of patients with isolated paresis of laryngeal adduction and identify predictive variables that may be related to ...
Variant of the Technique for Laryngeal Microsurgery in Cases of Difficult Laryngoscopy.
(Int Arch Otorhinolaryngol. 2019 Jan;23(1):18-24. doi: 10.1055/s-0038-1660825., 2019-01)
INTRODUCTION: Low exposure of the larynx can make laryngeal microsurgery difficult or even impossible. The application of rigid and contact endoscopy enabled oblique and retrograde angled visualization, allowing transoperative ...
