  • Heterogeneous predisposing factors and etiology in uvula edema patients. [Journal Article]

  • CONCLUSIONS: Isolated EU was found to be associated with snoring, an elongated uvula and having suffered from previous episodes of EU. Associations among groups of EU patients and gender, obesity, smoking, alcohol consumption, personal and family atopy or obstructive sleep apnea, were not demonstrated. Allergy to A. simplex was the most commonly recorded cause.
  • The effect of aging on drug-induced sleep endoscopy findings. [Journal Article]

  • CONCLUSIONS: Aging was an independent factor that directly correlated with increased AHI and hypoxemia, multisites, combined levels of obstruction, and complete AP velum collapse pattern. Being older than 60 years had higher of complete AP velum collapse and lower incidence of lateral oropharyngeal wall collapse, regardless of OSA severity and tonsil size.
  • The Effect of Sedating Agents on Drug-Induced Sleep Endoscopy Findings. [Journal Article]
  • LLaryngoscope 2018 Sep 07
  • Viana A, Zhao C, … Capasso R
  • CONCLUSIONS: Drug selection had a relevant influence in DISE findings. Compared with dexmedetomidine, midazolam and propofol presented higher incidence of tongue base collapse, lower O2 levels, and lower BIS index values. Propofol resulted in an O2 nadir that most resembled that observed during polysomnography. The BIS index variability differed among drugs, and its use was considered relevant for sedation orientation.
