Effect of obesity and erect/supine posture on lateral cephalometry: relationship to sleep-disordered breathing. (1/191)

Craniofacial and upper airway anatomy, obesity and posture may all play a role in compromising upper airway patency in patients with the sleep apnoea/hypopnoea syndrome. The aim of this study was to investigate the relationship between obesity, facial structure and severity of sleep-disordered breathing using lateral cephalometric measurements and to assess the effect of body posture on cephalometric measurements of upper airway calibre variables in obese and non-obese subjects. Lateral cephalometry was carried out in erect and supine postures in 73 awake male subjects randomly selected from patients referred for polysomnography who had a wide range of apnoea/hypopnoea frequencies (1-131 events x h sleep(-1)). Subjects were divided into non-obese (body mass index (BMI) < 30 kg x m(-2); n=42) and obese (BMI > or = 30 kg x m(-2); n=31) groups. Significant but weak correlations were found between apnoea/hypopnoea index (AHI) and measurements reflecting upper airway dimensions: uvular protrusion-posterior pharyngeal wall (r=-0.26, p<0.05) and hyoid-posterior pharyngeal wall (r=0.26, p<0.05). Multiple regression using both upper airway dimensions improved the correlation to AHI (r=0.34, p=0.01). Obese subjects had greater hyoid-posterior pharyngeal wall distances than non-obese subjects, both erect (42+/-5 versus 39+/-4 mm, respectively (mean+/-SD) p<0.01) and supine (43+/-5 versus 40+/-4 mm, p<0.05). Skeletal craniofacial structure was similar in obese and non-obese subjects. In conclusion, measurements reflecting upper airway size were correlated with the severity of sleep-disordered breathing. Differences in upper airway size measurements between obese and non-obese subjects were independent of bony craniofacial structure.  (+info)

Cephalometric abnormalities in non-obese and obese patients with obstructive sleep apnoea. (2/191)

The aim of this work was to comprehensively evaluate the cephalometric features in Japanese patients with obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA) and to elucidate the relationship between cephalometric variables and severity of apnoea. Forty-eight cephalometric variables were measured in 37 healthy males and 114 male OSA patients, who were classed into 54 non-obese (body mass index (BMI) <27 kg x m(-2), apnoea-hypopnoea index (AHI)=25.3+/-16.1 events x h(-1)) and 60 obese (BMI > or = 27 kg x m(-2), AHI=45.6+/-28.0 events h(-1)) groups. Diagnostic polysomnography was carried out in all of the OSA patients and in 19 of the normal controls. The non-obese OSA patients showed several cephalometric defects compared with their BMI-matched normal controls: 1) decreased facial A-P distance at cranial base, maxilla and mandible levels and decreased bony pharynx width; 2) enlarged tongue and inferior shift of the tongue volume; 3) enlarged soft palate; 4) inferiorly positioned hyoid bone; and 5) decreased upper airway width at four different levels. More extensive and severe soft tissue abnormalities with a few defects in craniofacial bony structures were found in the obese OSA group. For the non-obese OSA group, the stepwise regression model on AHI was significant with two bony structure variables as determinants: anterior cranial base length (S-N) and mandibular length (Me-Go). Although the regression model retained only linear distance between anterior vertebra and hyoid bone (H-VL) as an explainable determinant for AHI in the obese OSA group, H-VL was significantly correlated with soft tissue measurements such as overall tongue area (Ton), inferior tongue area (Ton2) and pharyngeal airway length (PNS-V). In conclusion, Japanese obstructive sleep apnoea patients have a series of cephalometric abnormalities similar to those described in Caucasian patients, and that the aetiology of obstructive sleep apnoea in obese patients may be different from that in non-obese patients. In obese patients, upper airway soft tissue enlargement may play a more important role in the development of obstructive sleep apnoea, whereas in non-obese patients, bony structure discrepancies may be the dominant contributing factors for obstructive sleep apnoea.  (+info)

Exhalation flow and pressure-controlled reservoir collection of exhaled nitric oxide for remote and delayed analysis. (3/191)

BACKGROUND: Expiratory flow rate, soft palate closure, and dead space air may influence exhaled levels of nitric oxide (NO). These factors have not been evaluated in the reservoir collection of NO. METHODS: Exhaled NO was collected into a reservoir during a single flow and pressure controlled exhalation. RESULTS: NO collected in a reservoir containing silica gel was stable for 24 hours. Nasally delivered 4.8% argon measured by mass spectrometry did not contaminate exhaled argon levels (0.1 (0.02)%) in five volunteers during exhalation against a resistance (10 (0.5) cmH2O), hence proving an effective soft palate closure. Exhaled NO in the reservoir was 11 (0.2) ppb, 8.6 (0.1) ppb, 7.1 (0.6) ppb, and 6.6 (0.4) ppb in five normal subjects and 48.3 (18) ppb, 20.3 (12) ppb, 16.9 (0.3) ppb and 10.1 (0.4) ppb in 10 asthmatic subjects at four studied expiratory flows (5-6, 7-8, 10-11, and 12-13 l/min, respectively), with NO levels equal to direct measurement (7.3 (0.5) ppb and 17.4 (0.5) ppb for normal and asthmatic subjects respectively, p < 0.05) at the flow rate 10-11 l/min. Elimination of dead space proved necessary to provide NO levels comparable to the direct measurement. Exhaled NO collected into the reservoir without dead space during flow controlled exhalation against mild resistance provided close agreement (mean (SD) difference -0.21 (0.68), coefficient of variation 4.58%) with direct measurement in 74 patients (NO range 1-69 ppb). CONCLUSIONS: Flow and pressure controlled collection of exhaled NO into a reservoir with silica gel provides values identical to the direct measurement and may be used to monitor asthma at home and where analysers are not on site.  (+info)

Immunohistochemical localization of carbonic anhydrase isozyme II in the gustatory epithelium of the adult rat. (4/191)

The distribution of carbonic anhydrase isozyme II (CA II)-like immunoreactivity (-LI) in the gustatory epithelium was examined in the adult rat. In the circumvallate and foliate papillae, CA II-LI was observed in the cytoplasm of the spindle-shaped taste bud cells, with weak immunoreaction in the surface of the gustatory epithelium. No neuronal elements displayed CA II-LI in these papillae. There was no apparent difference in the distribution pattern between the anterior and posterior portions of the foliate papillae. In immunoelectron microscopy, immunoreaction products for CA II were diffusely distributed in the entire cytoplasm of the taste bud cells having dense round granules at the periphery of the cells. No taste bud cells displaying CA II-LI were detected in the fungiform papillae, but a few thick nerve fibers displayed CA II-LI. In the taste buds of the palatal epithelium, neither taste bud cells nor neuronal elements exhibited CA II-LI. The present results indicate that CA II was localized in the type I cells designated as supporting cells in the taste buds located in the posterior lingual papillae of the adult animal.  (+info)

The incidence of cleft lip and palate deformities in the south-east of Scotland (1971-1990). (5/191)

This retrospective study reports the incidence of infants born with the cleft lip and palate anomaly within the Edinburgh Cleft Units catchment area, between 1 January, 1971, and 31 December, 1990. The importance of accurate data collection for local, regional, and national data bases is discussed with reference to the recent CSAG report on cleft lip and palate services in the UK. Five-hundred-and-two cleft lip and palate patients were identified (291 males, 211 females). The incidence is reported as 1.4 per 1000 live births (1 in 711). Twenty-five per cent of clefts affected the primary palate, 45 per cent affected the secondary palate, and the remaining 30 per cent were clefts of both the primary and secondary palate. Overall, a higher percentage of males were affected (58 per cent males to 42 per cent females). Clefts of the secondary palate, however, were more common in females (56 per cent females to 44 per cent males). Data presented in this study is similar to that previously reported from UK centres. It is suggested the accuracy of the UK cleft lip and palate data collection needs to be improved. Prospective data collection in a standardized format carried out on a national basis has to be a priority as recommended by the CSAG report.  (+info)

Unpredictable results of laser assisted uvulopalatoplasty in the treatment of obstructive sleep apnoea. (6/191)

BACKGROUND: Laser assisted uvulopalatoplasty (LAUP) is increasingly offered for the treatment of obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA), although there is a lack of objective data to support its indications and efficacy. A study was undertaken to determine the treatment response to LAUP. METHODS: Overnight polysomnography was performed before and at least three months after surgery in 44 consecutive patients with symptomatic mild to moderate OSA (apnoea + hypopnoea index (AHI) >10/h). Pharyngeal dimensions were measured by videoendoscopy (n = 11) and disease-specific quality of life, sleepiness and snoring frequency (n = 16) before and after surgery were determined in subgroups of patients. LAUP was performed under local anaesthesia as a one stage resection of the uvula and soft palate by one of two experienced otolaryngologists. RESULTS: Twelve patients (27%) had a good response (AHI 50% of pre-LAUP value); and 13 (30%) patients were worse (AHI >100% of pre-LAUP value). The velopharyngeal cross sectional area and anteroposterior diameter increased following LAUP (p<0.05). Quality of life indices improved significantly in all domains and sleepiness decreased. The snoring index did not decrease significantly. No preoperative anthropometric or videoendoscopic measures were predictive of a good response to LAUP. Patients who were worse after LAUP had milder baseline apnoea severity than those in the other response groups. CONCLUSIONS: The treatment response to LAUP is variable and unpredictable, and only a few patients achieve a satisfactory response. There appears to be no relationship between subjective and objective measures of treatment efficacy.  (+info)

Characterisation of human soft palate muscles with respect to fibre types, myosins and capillary supply. (7/191)

Four human soft palate muscles, and palatopharyngeus, the uvula, the levator and tensor veli palatini were examined using enzyme-histochemical, immunohistochemical and biochemical methods and compared with human limb and facial muscles. Our results showed that each palate muscle had a distinct morphological identity and that they generally shared more similarities with facial than limb muscles. The palatopharyngeus and uvula muscles contained 2 of the highest proportions of type II fibres ever reported for human muscles. In contrast, the levator and tensor veli palatini muscles contained predominantly type I fibres. A fetal myosin heavy chain isoform (MyHC), not usually found in normal adult limb muscles, was present in a small number of fibres in all palate muscles. The mean muscle fibre diameter was smaller than in limb muscles and the individual and intramuscular variability in diameter and shape was considerable. All palate muscles had a high capillary density and an unusually high mitochondrial enzyme activity in the type II fibres, in comparison with limb muscles. No ordinary muscle spindles were observed. The fibre type and MyHC composition indicate that the palatopharyngeus and uvula muscles are functionally involved in quick movements whereas the levator and tensor veli palatini muscles perform slower and more continuous contractions. The high aerobic capacity and the rich capillarisation suggest that the palate muscles are relatively fatigue resistant. Absence of ordinary muscle spindles indicates a special proprioceptive control system. The special morphology of the palate muscles may be partly related to the unique anatomy with only one skeletal insertion, a feature consistent with muscle work at low load and tension and which may influence the cytoarchitecture of these muscles. Other important factors determining the special morphological characteristics might be specific functional requirements, distinct embryological origin and phylogenetic factors.  (+info)

Computerized endopharyngeal myotonometry (CEM): a new method to evaluate the tissue tone of the soft palate in patients with obstructive sleep apnoea syndrome. (8/191)

This study compared the tissue tone of the soft palate in nonsnoring subjects and patients with obstructive sleep apnoea syndrome (OSAS) during wakefulness. Here, tissue tone means the biomechanical property of the tissue which can be characterized by two main parameters: stiffness and elasticity. Tissue tone includes both structural and neural components. A new method to evaluate the tissue tone of the soft palate was used - computerized endopharyngeal myotonometry (CEM). This method records and analyses the response of the soft palate tissues to a brief mechanical impact. The method enabled us to evaluate the most important parameters of tissue tone: stiffness, which is expressed as a frequency; and elasticity, expressed as a logarithmic decrement of the damped oscillation. First, a self-reported questionnaire was completed about the medical history of the subjects. Subjects then underwent a physical examination of the oropharynx and polysomnography with overnight pulse oximetry. The results of the CEM method indicated that patients with OSAS show an increased stiffness of the soft palate tissues (20.3, SD 4.7 Hz) compared with nonsnoring subjects (12.2, SD 1.8 Hz). In patients with sleep apnoea, elasticity is not increased in a similar way to stiffness. Thus, the disproportion between tissue stiffness and elasticity of the soft palate is a measure of the pathological changes in patients with sleep apnoea.  (+info)

Soft palate - Definition of Soft palate and synonyms of Soft palate are presented by online Websters Dictionary. Includes dictionary browser, morphological search by meaning of Soft palate, thesaurus, related words, and dictionary browser. Provides Soft palate usage examples
Within the microstructure of the soft palate lie a variety of variably-oriented fibers that create a nonuniform surface with a nonuniform density distribution. The tissue has been characterized as viscoelastic, nonlinear, and anisotropic in the direction of the fibers. Young modulus values range from 585 Pa at the posterior free edge of the soft palate to 1409 Pa where the soft palate attaches to the maxilla.[3] These properties are useful when quantifying the effects of corrective orthopedic devices such as the Hotz Plate on cleft lip. Quantitative analyses have been done on bilateral and unilateral cleft palate to better understand geometric differences in cleft palate throughout the course of its development and correction.[4] Despite the difficulty in finding common, comparable landmarks between normal soft palates and cleft palates, analytical methods have been devised to assess differences in degree of curvature of the alveolar crest, two-dimensional and three-dimensional surface area, and ...
PMID: 19918590 Purpose: The restoration of speech after an extensive resection of the soft palate has been a challenge faced by both prosthodontists and surgeons. Few comparisons between prosthetic rehabilitations and surgical reconstructions of large soft palate defects exist in equally matched groups of patients. The purpose of this study was to evaluate speech outcomes in patients with soft palate defects that were rehabilitated with either a pharyngeal obturator or surgical reconstruction. Materials and Methods: Nine patients who were treated via prosthetic obturation were compared to nine patients who underwent surgical reconstruction of the oropharynx with a radial forearm free flap and a soft palate insufficiency repair modification. Speech intelligibility data, perceptual ratings of resonance, and aeromechanical measurements of velopharyngeal function were collected. Results: There were no differences in any of the speech outcome measures between the two groups of patients. Conclusion: ...
Lifting the soft palate is a crucial phase in singing. If you take singing lessons, or have taken some in the past, you may have heard phrases like: lift the soft palate, imagine an egg in the mouth, try to smile inside, etc. Why is it important to lift the soft palate while singing? Its really important to lift the soft palate while singing if we dont want the sound to become nasal. In fact, a low palate represents a sort of obstacle to the resonance of the voice, which, instead of channelli
When reconstructing combined defects of the cervical spine and the posterior pharyngeal wall the goals are bone stability along with continuity of the aerodigestive tract. We present a case of a patient with a cervical spine defect, including C1 to C3, associated with a posterior pharyngeal wall defect after excision of a chordoma and postoperative radiotherapy. The situation was successfully solved with a free fibula osteo-adipofascial flap. The reconstruction with a fibula osteo-adipofascial flap provided several benefits in comparison with a fibula osteo-cutaneous flap in our case, including an easier insetting of the soft tissue component at the pharyngeal level and less bulkiness of the flap allowing our patient to resume normal deglutition.. ...

Introduction. Brachycephalic breeds are usually distinguished from others by their shortened skull which results from an early ankylosis of the cartilages in this region. Different breeds are usually recognized as brachycephalic: Boston terrier, English and French bulldog, pugs, Pekinese, Shih-tzu and cavalier King Charles. Clinical signs of upper respiratory syndrome in the brachycephalic dog (BD) usually include snoring, inspiratory dyspnea, exercise intolerance and stridor, cyanosis or even syncopal episodes in more severe cases. These problems are usually aggravated by stress, exercise or heat. Labored breathing is accompanied by overdilatation of the chest since a higher negative pressure tends to suck the abdomen into the thoracic cavity. The condition usually worsens with age. Vomiting or saliva regurgitation are also frequently encountered.. Peculiarities of Brachycephalic Dogs. Several anatomic abnormalities can be found in the brachycephalic dogs. The cartilaginous skeleton of the ...
hi yvette…please follow these strategies and get back to me with any questions: HOW TO TEACH THE K SOUND. The K sound is a stop sound that is made in the back of your throat. It is a un-voiced sound…which means that your motor is off…this mean that your vocal folds do NOT move or vibrate. When you make the K sound your tongue retracts to the back of your throat and touches your soft palate (where is your soft palate?…..you know the little thing that hangs in the back of your throat…thats your uvula..and your uvula is attached to your soft palate).. Often times when children have difficulty with the K sound they also have difficulty with the G sound. Why?? Because both K and G are stop sounds that are both produced in the back of the throat with the retraction of the tongue to the soft palate . So the K and G sounds are both velar sounds (velar or velum is another word for soft palate) that stop.. So…what is the difference between the two…when you make the G sound your vocal folds ...
Sleep apnea, like snoring, is often caused by lax muscles in the upper throat. During snoring, the airways are blocked due to the collapse of the soft palate and the muscles lining the throat wall. When airways become narrow and throat muscles are loose there is increased suction, and the result is noisy vibrations. Singing for snorers is a proven apnea alternative treatment that exercises the muscle groups which support the soft palate. The soft palate vibrates when you snore, causing blockage of the airways leading to conditions of apnea.. If you constantly exercise the muscles that hold up the soft palate, the muscles become much stronger and tighter. When your throat muscles are stronger and tighter it requires an extremely powerful breath to cause the soft palate to vibrate and cause snoring.. The singing for snorers program lets you work out muscles around the throat where snoring vibrations usually occur. This strengthens the linings of the airways, thus reducing blockage and ...
Dan ONeill, senior lecturer at the RVC warns profession to brace itself for three-pronged welfare challenge for brachycephalic breeds.. He said substantial evidence showed severe health problems in brachycephalic breeds were associated with their physical conformation and may be further exacerbated by the scramble to breed enough dogs to supply demand.. In addition, the bubble of dogs bought on a wave of popularism are starting to age, meaning a natural increase in health problems associated with ageing in already predisposed breeds.. Finally, evidence suggests welfare charities are already inundated with unwanted brachycephalic breeds by owners who are either tired of them or feeling the economic impact of caring for them..

During the Pillar Procedure, three tiny woven inserts are placed in the soft palate to help reduce both the vibration that causes snoring and the ability of the soft palate to obstruct the airway. The Pillar inserts add structural support to the soft palate over time and prevents palatal fluttering (snoring).. The complex anatomical structure of the upper airway passages is due to the close association of the air, food and fluid passages. We not only breathe through our mouth and nose, but we also eat and drink through our mouth. The food passages of the mouth, throat and oesophagus leading to the stomach are separated from the airway by the soft palate and epiglottis and associated structures of the larynx or voicebox. This normally prevents food or fluid passing into the air passages and lungs. Occasional strong coughing fits are reminders that this is not always the case!. The nasal air passages serve to moisten the air intake and also provide the olfactory, or smell sense. Alternating ...

The objective of the study was to evaluate short- and long-term effects of radiofrequency treatment of the soft palate on snoring. Twenty-nine patients with habitual snoring were studied prospectively and treated up to four times at 4-6 week intervals with an Ellman Surgitrone((R)). Electromyography (EMG) of m. palatoglossus was performed in ten patients. Patients and partners evaluated snoring, sleep quality and daytime sleepiness 1 week preoperatively, 6 months and 3-4 years postoperatively. Snoring was reduced postoperatively (P , 0.0001). Sleep time increased, daytime sleepiness was reduced, and the partners slept better after 6 months. However, 3-4 years postoperatively only 25% of patients were satisfied. Another 25% had received additional treatment. EMG was normal in 6/10 patients preoperatively. They all continued to snore postoperatively. Four patients had pathological EMGs; three were responders. In conclusion, radiofrequency treatment for snoring may lead to long-term improvement in ...

An apparatus for use in treating snoring of a patient suffering from snoring includes an implant of bio-compatible material sized to be embedded within the soft palate. The implant is disposed within a bore of a distal tip of a needle for penetration into the soft palate. The bore is sized to receive a rod from a proximal end of the needle with the rod opposing the implant to eject the implant from the distal tip upon relative sliding movement of said needle and said rod. The needle at the distal tip is perforated for fluid to flow through a wall of the needle into engagement with the implant. The implant is selected to altering a dynamic response of the soft palate to airflow past the soft palate.
A method and apparatus for treating snoring of a patient includes providing an implant for altering a dynamic response of a soft palate of the patient to airflow past the soft palate. The implant is embedded in the soft palate to alter the dynamic response. For example, the implant has a mass, stiffness or dampening sufficient to alter the dynamic response following the implantation without substantially impairing a function of the soft palate to close a nasal passage of the patient during swallowing.

This structure begins where the oral cavity ends at the junction of the hard and soft palates superiorly and the circumvallate papillae inferiorly and extends from the level of the soft palate superiorly, which separates it from the nasopharynx and to the level of the hyoid bone inferiorly, where the hypopharynx begins. The subsites of the oropharynx are the tonsil, base of tongue, soft palate, and pharyngeal walls. Cancers of the oropharynx often metastasize to upper and middle jugular chain lymph nodes (Levels II and III), but can also spread to retropharyngeal lymph nodes, which distinguishes them from oral cavity tumors and must be considered when treating oropharyngeal cancers. Tumors in this site are generally treated with radiotherapy, as a single modality for T 1/2 or N 0/1 stages. Increasingly, some of these cancers are associated with human papilloma virus 16 infection, especially in nonsmokers. However, for patients with more advanced disease, T 3/4 or N 2 b/c/3 staging, ...
Once OSA has been ruled out, either clinically by the physician or from a sleep study, a new non-surgical revolutionary treatment is now available. The Somnoplasty procedure gently reduces and stiffens the tissues in the soft palate and uvula, and does so without the pain associated with conventional and laser-assisted surgeries.. Your overall treatment may include weight loss and other lifestyle modifications. .. What is Somnoplasty?. Somnoplasty uses low-power, low-temperature radio frequency energy to treat a well-defined area in the uvula or soft palate. The procedure takes place in our office under local anesthesia, and typically takes less than an hour, including anesthesia.. Radio frequency energy is delivered beneath the surface layer of the soft palate, called mucosa. The treated tissue is heated just enough to create an extra area of coagulation. Over the next four to six weeks the treated tissue is naturally removed by the body, reducing the volume and stiffening the area responsible ...
Internally, the airway is composed of many structures and well-defined spaces. It originates in the nasal and oral cavities (Figure 20-1). The nasal cavity extends from the nostrils to the posterior nares or choanae. Because resistance to airflow through the nose is almost twice that of the mouth, patients who require high flow rates (e.g., during exercise) often breathe through their mouths. The nasopharynx extends from the end of the nasal cavity to the level of the soft palate. Tonsillar lymphoid structures are the primary impediments to airflow through the nasopharynx. The oral cavity is bounded by the teeth anteriorly, hard and soft palates above, and the tongue below. The oropharynx, which communicates with the oral cavity and the nasopharynx, extends from the soft palate to the tip of the epiglottis. The tongue is the principal source of obstruction in the oropharynx.. ...

Obstructive sleep apnea exercises are all connected with the face, throat, mouth, nose and neck region of the body. The general concept is to strengthen, exercise and train certain muscles, making the airway easier to access during the night while sleeping.. But heres the key: not just any exercise works in strengthening your airway; only certain exercises have been proven to strengthen the muscles that cure sleep apnea (and snoring). Your goal is to focus on THOSE exercises, so you dont waste your time.. So what exercises am I talking about, exactly?. Heres an example of an exercise that has been proven to significantly reduce sleep apnea: its called soft palate blowing.. The steps to do soft palate blowing are as follows:. ...

BOAS, brachycephalic obstructive airway syndrome, is a cause of upper airway obstruction in brachycephalic breeds. The most significantly affected dogs tend to be the smaller short-nose breeds, such as Pugs, French Bulldogs, English Bulldogs and Boston Terriers.. BOAS surgery is routinely performed at Highcroft Referrals by our team of specialist surgeons, with care from our specialist anaesthetist. The surgery performed will be tailored to the individual; soft palate resection and correction of stenotic nares are the most common procedures, however.. Cases will be assessed carefully before any surgery; this may include investigations and treatment for reflux which is a common concurrent problem. Our approach of assessing the whole animal makes the procedure as safe as possible; all options will be fully discussed with owners at the initial consultation.. ...
Brachycephalic obstructive airway syndrome (BOAS) is caused by a mismatch between a shortened skull and the soft tissues that have not accompanied this shortening, causing the airway to be crowded and consequently partially obstructed. Breeds commonly affected by this condition include French Bulldogs, English Bulldogs, Pugs, Boston Terriers. The mean age of presentation is usually between 2 and 4 years old, although younger animals are commonly affected. The aim of surgery is to decrease airfl ow resistance by alleviating upper airway obstruction and is still the mainstay of long-term treatment. Prognosis is in general good, with 90% of dogs improving after surgery and a reported mortality rate of only around 4%. Most treated dogs, although improved symptomatically, must never be considered normal dogs and there is an increasing role for the veterinary profession in educating the public about this condition.. ...
This article discusses surgical techniques and corrective procedures that address brachycephalic airway syndrome. If performed early, surgery can prevent development of secondary changes associated with this condition.
The objective of the present study was to obtain echobiometric values for the most important canine maternal-fetal tissues using high-definition ultrasonography (HDUS) trying to update the formulas for predicting gestational age. Twelve healthy bitches of brachycephalic breeds weighing 7-13kg and aged one to four years were included. The fetuses were analyzed every day using conventional and high-definition ultrasonography from the eighth day after artificial insemination until the day of delivery, using the ACUSON S2000/SIEMENS ultrasound equipment and specific software. Embryonic and fetal structures; diameter of the embryonic vesicle; length of the embryo; biparietal diameter, abdominal length and kidney height; length of the femur, humerus, scapula, radius, and tibia; thickening of the stomach wall; adrenal length; and cardiac size were measured. These variables were correlated with gestational and adjusted tested according to regression models. The results obtained (P,0.001) for: Lateral ...

The soft palate (also known as the velum or muscular palate) is, in mammals, the soft tissue constituting the back of the roof of the mouth. The soft palate is distinguished from the hard palate at the front of the mouth in that it does not contain bone. The five muscles of the soft palate play important roles in swallowing and breathing. The muscles are: Tensor veli palatini, which is involved in swallowing Palatoglossus, involved in swallowing Palatopharyngeus, involved in breathing Levator veli palatini, involved in swallowing Musculus uvulae, which moves the uvula These muscles are innervated by the pharyngeal plexus via the vagus nerve, with the exception of the tensor veli palatini. The tensor veli palatini is innervated by cranial nerve 5 branch V3 (which is the mandibular division of the trigeminal cranial nerve). The soft palate is moveable, consisting of muscle fibers sheathed in mucous membrane. It is responsible for closing off the nasal passages during the act of swallowing, and ...
The solitary fibrous tumors (SFT) are rare tumors in the head and neck region and there have been only 5 cases reported in the literature in the soft palate. The current paper presents a unique case of a 62-year-old male with TFS arising in the soft palate. The tumor was highly cellular, composed of bland looking haphazardly arranged spindle cells. The signal transducer and activator of transcription (STAT)-6 and nuclear β-catenin were reactive by immunohistochemistry (IHC). The current case highlights the importance of the STAT-6 and the β-catenin as IHC markers to make a differential diagnosis with other entities. In summary, the paper presents the first reported case of a SFT of the soft palate in a male patient with nuclear expression of STAT-6 and β-catenin.
The palatine uvula, usually referred to as simply the uvula /ˈjuːvjʊlə/, is a conic projection from the posterior edge of the middle of the soft palate, composed of connective tissue containing a number of racemose glands, and some muscular fibers (musculus uvulae). It also contains a large number of serous glands that produce a lot of thin saliva. The musculus uvulae, which lies entirely within the uvula, shortens and broadens the uvula. This changes the contour of the posterior part of the soft palate. This change in contour allows the soft palate to adapt closely to the posterior pharyngeal wall to help close the nasopharynx during swallowing. It is innervated by the pharyngeal branch of the vagus nerve (cranial nerve X). A bifid or bifurcated uvula is a split or cleft uvula. Newborns with cleft palate often also have a split uvula. The bifid uvula results from incomplete fusion of the palatine shelves but it is considered only a slight form of clefting. Bifid uvulas have less muscle in ...
For the treatment of social snoring one common treatment modality is the surgical reconstruction of the soft palate. The procedure is a routine operation performed at nearly all Ear-Nose- and Throat departments in Norway. The surgery is done with local anaesthesia in an out-patient setting where the patients postoperative observation at the hospital is limited to 1-2 hours. As the surgery is done in the sensitive mucosa and palatopharyngeal musculature the postoperative course might be unpleasant. The patients are therefore in the need of regular postoperative pain treatment extending into the 2 first weeks after surgery.. At hospitals the uvulopalatoplasty is performed using a radiofrequency knife (RAUP) after the soft palate has been infiltrated with local anaesthesia (1% xylocain/adrenaline). The incision is done paramedialy to the uvular base and up into the musculature of the soft palate then making a smooth arch toward the pharyngeal tonsil upper limit. The then elongated uvula is ...
If none of the options as listed above work, then then your own physician might suggest surgery. Some of the more invasive options available are Uvulopalatopharyngoplasty (UPPP) and Laser-assisted uvulopalatoplasty (LAUP). Each these procedures have lengthy recovery time periods. In UPPP the physician will remove part of the soft palate, tonsils and, Uvula. With LAUP a regarding the soft palate is actually removed with a laser and incisions additionally made the actual Uvula. Neither of these procedures have high success rates and snoring can be recurrent. You may would also like to try Somnoplasty rrn which a thin needle and radiofrequency signals are always shrink the tissue inside your soft palate and air route. Somnoplasty often requires several attempts, but is generally effective ...

The uvula is an appendage of soft palate and is formed by the fusion of the two halves of the soft palate. It is an important structure in producing a tight seal in the pharynx during speech and feeding. An elongated uvula can flop down and touch various structures in the upper airway including the posterior pharyngeal wall, epiglottis, and vocal cords. Irritation of these structures can lead to chronic cough.. There are case reports of the uvula causing apnoea due to irritation of the epiglottis or vocal cords. Uvulectomy led to relief from these symptoms.1,2 In Africa, especially in the Muslim community, uvulectomy is an ancient ritual/tradition and is as common as circumcision. There are various case reports and commentaries from the literature in 1970-80. Uvulectomies are normally performed by traditional healers with indifferent results.3-5. This case report illustrates the importance of eliciting a family history in reaching the diagnosis as well as the need for thorough examination for ...

Both the surgical intervention and postoperative period were uneventfull. Oral feeding was possible on the first postoperative day. The distraction device was well tolerated. No signs of mucosal irritation were found after removal of the distraction device. Mobility of the osteotomized segments did not appear. Four weeks after removal of the device, a 3-4 mm distance between the velum and the posterior pharyngeal wall was measured. Hence, a 7-8 dorsal displacement of the soft palate was registered (fig.9). The mobility of the soft palate was completely retained and characterized by a circular closure pattern. Rhinolalla aperta was still evident, although it was substantially reduced, compared to the preoperative findings. Speech comprehensibility, especially of plosive sounds, was clearly improved ...
Uvulopalatopharyngoplasty UVPPP entails removal of tonsils, uvula, trimming the soft palate to treat obstructive sleep apnea (OSA).
Some people seek treatment for sleep apnea or snoring with uvulopalatopharyngoplasty surgery or UPPP as it is often referred to. This hard to pronounce surgery entails the removal of the soft palate and the uvula. Often your tonsils are removed at the same time if you still have them.
Brachycephalic Airway Syndrome in Bulldogs and French Bulldogs includes elongated soft palate, stenotic nares, hypoplastic trachea and everted saccules
Many brachycephalic animals cannot breathe normally. Although the bones of the face are shortened, the soft tissues are not, leaving excess tissue that can block the airway. Signs of impaired breathing include snoring, snorting, and exercise intolerance. Brachycephalic animals are at risk for heat stroke, respiratory distress, and collapse. Long-term labored breathing can also cause digestive tract problems like gagging and vomiting. Obesity makes all of these problems worse.[3 ...
DALLAS, TX (PRWEB) - 28 February, 2013 - A study published in the January issue of Laryngoscope confirms that the Pillar Procedure is an effective means of reducing snoring and mild-to-moderate sleep apnea.. After reviewing seven studies on the impact of the Pillar Procedure on snoring and mild-to-moderate obstructive sleep apnea, the authors concluded, the Pillar implant seems to have a considerable efficacy on snoring and mild-to-moderate OSA (obstructive sleep apnea) patients.. Medtronics Pillar Procedure is a minimally invasive method for stiffening the soft palate that works by placing small woven implants into the soft palate. The Pillar Procedure was first approved as a treatment for snoring by the FDA in 2002, and for mild-to-moderate obstructive sleep apnea in 2004. This review adds to the considerable pre-existing data supporting the use of the Pillar Procedure as an effective, convenient, patient-friendly treatment option..

Exercise-induces upper airway problems include laryngeal hemiplegia and dorsal displacement of the soft palate. Laryngeal hemiplegia is paralysis of the larynx and vocal cords, which causes a roaring sound when a horse breaths. When a horse breathes in, they are creating negative pressure which pulls the paralyzed larynx closed, creating the roaring you hear.. If a horse suffers from dorsal displacement of the soft palate, the soft palette is up over the epiglottis. In this case you get an incredibly large flutter sound, said Dr. Mrad, and those horses are almost always constantly gagging.. Each of these conditions affects the horses ability to breathe.. Once diagnosed, both of these conditions can be treated surgically. Tie back surgery can be performed on a paralyzed larynx where the larynx is tied back out of the way. A suture is placed that pulls the arotinoid cartilage back open and it leaves it open so the horse can breathe. Dr. Mrad explains. In the case of a displaced soft ...

Like migraines, brain freeze headaches are thought to be caused by changes in the blood stream. This is all in theory, because no proper explanation of this dreadful medical malady has been formulated. But the idea is that a big mouthful of ice cold ice cream rapidly cools the soft palate in the roof of the mouth, chilling the nearby arteries that run into the brain. The rapid cooling makes them contract - because theyre cold - which increases the blood pressure produces the brain pain. In fact, any icy substance held to the soft palate with the tongue, should yield the same painful result. But, while were doing science here, we might as well be testing it out with ice cream ...

Yes and no. The problem is that a large number of brachycephalic dogs show the signs at the milder end of the above spectrum and our tolerance of what is normal for these breeds has become skewed. We frequently see patients coming into our clinic for unrelated problems with marked breathing difficulty. When questioned their owners often state that they consider these signs as normal for the breed. They often add that most other dogs of the same breed that they come across on walks sound and react the same which reinforces this notion! Therefore it is important that we get the message across that these signs are abnormal and if your dog is displaying some of them then a veterinary opinion should be sought.. ...
Brachycephalic dog breeds have a flat and wide skull shape. In dogs, it is the opposite to the skull shape of long nosed breeds such as the Greyhound which is called dolichocephalia. A brachycephlic skull therefore appears as though the skull has been severely compressed from front to back. In extreme cases it may appear that there is no nose present at all.
LAUP allows treatment of snoring and mild OSA by removing the obstruction in your airway in an outpatient setting under local anesthesia. A laser is used to vaporize the uvula and a specified portion of the palate in a series of small procedures. LAUP is performed while you are positioned in an upright sitting position in an examination chair.. Before administration of anesthesia, you are informed that the back of your throat will become numb and that you will lose the sensation of swallowing and breathing. A local anesthesia is sprayed over the back oral cavity, soft palate, tonsils, and uvula followed by an injection of additional anesthesia in the muscle layer of the uvula. After several minutes, a CO2 laser is used to make both, vertical incisions in the palate on both sides of the uvula. The uvula is shortened, eliminating the obstruction that has contributed to the snoring.. LAUP requires up to five treatments spaced four to eight weeks apart (although one to three are usual).. ...
Uvulopalatopharyngoplasty is a person form of surgical solution wherever tissues all around the back from the mouth and also the prime of the throat are removed to assist open up the air passages that could trigger restriction.. Maxillomandibular Advancement (MMA) or orthognathic surgery is really a technique wherever the jaw is moved forward far from another facial bones to also open the airways. MMA is typically performed along side Genioglossus advancement which pulls the bottom of the tongue forward. Whilst these techniques have shown to be really powerful in managing OSA, other cure solutions tend to be tried to start with due to the soreness and recovery periods linked using these surgical procedures.. A different powerful rest apnea cure is the Pillar Method. It really is a insignificant surgical procedure, frequently performed within a doctors workplace under nearby anesthetic. Small polyester rods are inserted in the soft palate. This helps to stiffen the palate therefore stopping the ...
Pivotal to refining the quality of her voice was an experimental treatment involving her palate, treatment to which she brought a unique contribution as both patient and student.. Melisas speech-language pathologist introduced her to Dr. Granger Wong, a plastic surgeon from the University of California, Davis.. The conversation soon turned to a material he was using to treat cleft palates-and then came a sudden idea inspired by the hypernasality of Melisas speech, which resulted from her soft palate inadequately closing off the nose from the mouth, letting air and sound escape through the nose during speech.. I bet if I injected this into the back of your throat… Dr. Wong speculated.. And thats exactly what he did-in a pioneering implementation of Dr. Wongs posterior pharyngeal (throat) wall implants, guided by Melisas knowledge as a student and patient.. Rachel Torres remembers one of the experimental treatments. The radiologist, department manager and I looked on as Dr. Wong ...
Obstructive Sleep Apnoea (OSA) and Snoring is a common problem, more likely in men than women and in particular in the overweight. When a constriction occurs at the back of the throat, breathing causes vibrations in the soft tissues of the tongue and soft palate which are heard as snoring.

Other Health Issues. If theres one condition that best illustrates the distance between nature and dogs deliberately bred to have extreme conformations, its the prevalence of Caesarean sections in brachycephalic breeds. A 2010 study published in the Journal of Small Animal Practice looked at the data from a UK Kennel Club survey of 13,141 female dogs who were pregnant to find that the rate of C-sections among the Boston terriers, bulldogs and French bulldogs was greater than 80 percent. In other words: human intervention was required for the continued propagation of these breeds.. Puppies with extra-big heads-as are common to the brachycephalic breeds-are difficult for mother dogs to birth naturally. Additionally, many brachycephalic breed standards, like that of the French bulldog, call for narrow hips, which makes birthing difficult if not impossible. In the case of English Bulldogs, Survival of this breed is truly dependent on human intervention, write the authors of a 2015 study in the ...
For biomedical applications with relevance to the human upper respiratory tract, the knowledge of the tissue behavior when exposed to a particular flow field would be desired. Moreover, there is of importance to quantify how the tissue properties affects the biomechanics of obstruction. Since in-vivo measurements are often not possible or inappropriate, this is assessed computationally and usually using simplified/idealized geometries.. The present work is devoted to analyze a fluid-structure interaction scenario relevant to snoring and Obstructive Sleep Apnea Syndrome (OSAS). The uncertainty of the solution to the most influential parameters will be assessed, with the aim of quantifying the interplay between the most relevant parameters responsible for tissue self-excitation and obstruction dynamics. A statistical description of the behavior shall be developed. The tissue responsible for snoring in sleep apnea patients (the soft palate) is mimicked in this numerical study by a flexible thin ...
The researchers also suggested that the uvula lubricates our vocal cords, and could be necessary to make some sounds that are critical for human language. Another camp of researchers disagrees though. They think that its just some vestigial trace of our ancestors (again, like your tailbone), without any essential purpose.. Their camp gets a little support from a type of surgery called uvulopalatopharyngoplasty (try saying that five times fast). The surgery doesnt necessarily remove the entire uvula, but it removes parts of the soft flesh inside the mouth to reduce snoring and sleep apnea. Even those uvula-less patients appear to be communicating just fine.. Look around. Each of the Muppets has a felted uvula so that when they lean back to belt out songs you see a human-like mouth. I bet youll see uvulas everywhere now…or at least in every animated movie.. So why bother stuffing uvulas into animals? Its not like the uvula is an essential part of the human body, let alone one that seems ...
Suitability for LAUP is determined after examination of your health history, lifestyle factors such as exercise, alcohol, smoking, etc, cardiovascular condition, and current medications in use. In order to evaluate the cause of the snoring, you will also receive a physical and otolaryngological examination. Before the laser surgery is conducted, you will participate in a sleep study, which will position the level of actual snoring and sleep apnea. This will complete the evaluation necessary for prescribing the appropriate treatment for your needs. You can expect to return to a usual routine almost immediately if you undergo the LAUP surgery. For the majority of those undergoing this surgery there will be swallowing pain similar to a severe sore throat. This discomfort lasts for approximately ten days and can be relieved by oral analgesic and anti-inflammatory medicines. Improvement is noted by the reduction in or disappearance of your snoring.. ...
Does anyone have suggestions for nursing a baby with soft palate cleft. I want to nurse my little girl so badly she is my 5th child and she can not get enough suction to get my milk out. I have been pumping and still put her to breast with a shield to comfort her. The surgeons dont do surgery until she is 9 months. Does anyone have experience with this and if so were you able to nurse after the surgery? Thank you
Sleep issues, specifically snoring and obstructive Sleep Apnea, affect millions of people in the United States. Caused by partial or completely obstructed airways in the soft palate, these blockages translate to a shallow nights rest for you and sometimes your loved ones. We have a solution that many of our patients have adopted to deal with this issue. Its a simple and virtually maintenance-free option to the CPAP machine. If you feel you are affected by this common disorder, call for an evaluation reservation to see if the MicrO2 might be right for you. These are just a few of the benefits and features you will enjoy: ...
Causes of sleep apnea include overly relaxed throat tissues and tongue, a large tongue, tonsils, uvula or soft palate and an abnormally small airway.

Up to 14% of the U.S. population is estimated to have obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), while the outcomes of the treatments have variable results. In the current study, a three-dimensional fluid-structure interaction modeling was applied to simulate the upper airway to identify the precise location, severity, and characteristic of airway collapse. This was accomplished using Simpleware® and ANSYS® software applied to a 3-D rendering of the airway in a real patient with severe OSA. During this simulation, areas which are prone to collapse and precipitate apneic episodes were identified at the tip of the soft palate and the base of the tongue, with intrathoracic pressure as low as -1370 Pa ...
If you or someone you love has sleep apnea, obesity may be a (1) ___________ factor. Maybe you are kept awake by the horrendous snoring, snorting or get worried because sometimes your spouse sounds like he is choking. These are all signs and symptoms of sleep apnea and you should (2) ________ them to go to the doctor or get yourself to the doctor if this is you. The way obesity comes into play with sleep apnea is that the fatty tissue that has built up around the neck affects the neck muscles and soft palate, and even the little flap in the back of your throat, called the uvula, and when you go to sleep all the muscles relax and the fatty tissue relaxes and closes off your airway. This is (3) __________ because at some point you may just stop breathing all together ...
Finally, your surgeon will close the incision wound and throat is irrigated and suctioned to remove the accumulated blood and fluid.. The mouth gag is then removed, and the teeth and tongue are examined for any injury.. The shape or appearance of the palate after healing is generally quite different because there is no longer a uvula dangling down the center, but instead, there is a usually smooth curved arc across the palate. Also, it looks significantly shorter.. It is obligatory for you to stay overnight in the hospital.. This procedure, in general, reduces the rate of apneic episodes in half. So you may still end up needing other forms of treatment. A sleep study is conducted around 3 months after surgery to evaluate the results of the surgery. ...
