Effect of obesity and erect/supine posture on lateral cephalometry: relationship to sleep-disordered breathing. (1/70)

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)

Cognitive function and treatment of obstructive sleep apnea syndrome. (2/70)

Among patients with obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS), impairment of cognitive function, i.e. deficits in memory, attention, and visuconstructive abilities are common. We applied different forms of treatment for patients with newly diagnosed OSAS in a randomized study with a one-year follow-up. Patients with BMI > 40 kg/m2 were excluded. After the initial diagnostic work-up, male patients were considered to be candidates for either nasal continuous airway pressure (nCPAP) (27 patients) or surgical treatment (uvulopalatopharyngoplasty with or without mandibular osteotomy) (23 patients). Within the groups, the patients were then randomized to active treatment (nCPAP/surgery) or to conservative management. Cognitive function and severity of OSAS were assessed prior to treatment and 3 and 12 months later. At 12 months, all patients on nCPAP had a normal ODI4 index (< 10), and were significantly less somnolent than their controls; 3/11 of the surgically treated patients had a normal ODI4 index. Daytime somnolence was significantly less severe in the surgically treated patients than in their controls. Cognitive function did not correlate importantly with daytime sleepiness or severity of OSAS; the best Pearson pairwise correlation coefficient was between ODI4 and the Bourdon-Wiersma (r = 0.36). Success in treatment of OSAS did not affect neuropsychological outcome. We concluded that the standard cognitive test battery is insufficiently sensitive to identify positive changes in patients with OSAS, especially among those with a high level of overall mental functioning.  (+info)

Obstructive sleep apnoea syndrome in hereditary gelsolin-related amyloidosis. (3/70)

Gelsolin-related amyloidosis (AGel amyloidosis) is a rare autosomal dominant disorder, reported worldwide in kindreds carrying a G654A or G654T gelsolin gene mutation. The main clinical signs are cutis laxa, cranial and peripheral neuropathy, and corneal lattice dystrophy but heavy intermittent snoring also occurs. To evaluate whether sleep apnoea is present we performed nocturnal sleep recordings, cephalometric and spirometric analyses and multiple sleep latency tests (MSLT) in five snoring patients with a G654A gelsolin gene mutation. Four patients had obstructive sleep apnoea syndrome (OSAS) with redundant oropharyngeal and hypopharyngeal soft tissues, macroglossia and cranial neuromuscular dysfunction. The fifth patient had hypersomnia without obstructive sleep apnoea. Nasal continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) was an effective treatment. This study presents the first evidence in favour of an association between AGel amyloidosis and OSAS, but further studies are needed to define the prevalence of OSAS and the pathogenetic roles of amyloid and variant gelsolin in its evolution.  (+info)

Prospective audit of a respiratory sleep disorders service at District General Hospital level. (4/70)

This study was designed to examine the organisation and outcomes of a District General Hospital respiratory sleep service, since data are lacking on the management of sleep-disordered breathing at this level. Questionnaires and case-notes review were used to assess the management of 119 consecutive patients referred with suspected sleep-disordered breathing. Patients diagnosed with sleep-disordered breathing were assigned nasal continuous positive airway pressure (nCPAP), ear/nose/throat (ENT) surgery or simple measures (e.g., weight loss). There were six non-attenders. At 12 months follow-up, 33 patients had been assigned to nCPAP, 25 to ENT surgery, and 37 to simple measures. Of the remainder, nine had alternative diagnoses, two were still being assessed and seven were lost to follow-up. Patients prescribed nCPAP (81% compliance) had significant symptomatic improvements with low dissatisfaction rates (20%); patients on simple measures did not improve (33% dissatisfied); only half assigned surgery had it performed, with 42% awaiting surgery and dissatisfied. Interspecialty referral resulted in major delays (mean 16 weeks). Referral letters were generally unhelpful in deciding on the appropriateness of initial referral (respiratory physician vs ENT). nCPAP was generally effective in improving symptoms, with a high level of patient satisfaction, while simple measures did not improve symptoms and were associated with lower satisfaction levels. Waiting times to ENT surgery can be long and patients express significant dissatisfaction. Referral letters are not useful in directing initial referral. Services should be co-ordinated between respiratory and ENT specialties to reduce waiting times and improve patient satisfaction.  (+info)

Hypersomnia following uvulopalatopharyngoplasty for snoring. (5/70)

This report describes three cases who underwent uvulopalatopharyngoplasty for severe snoring and who subsequently developed progressive excessive daytime sleepiness. All three cases were shown to have sleep fragmentation as a result of non-apnoeic episodic upper airway narrowing. These cases raise the possibility that increased upper airway resistance during sleep may be exacerbated or even caused by uvulopalatopharyngoplasty. Ideally, sleep-disordered breathing should be carefully excluded before this surgery is offered as treatment for severe snoring.  (+info)

Unpredictable results of laser assisted uvulopalatoplasty in the treatment of obstructive sleep apnoea. (6/70)

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)

Uvulo-palatoglossal junctional ulcers--an early clinical sign of exanthem subitum due to human herpesvirus 6. (7/70)

A provisional clinical diagnosis of exanthem subitum was made in six febrile infants seen in the Paediatric Unit of Assunta Hospital, Petaling Jaya, Malaysia with uvulo-palatoglossal junctional ulcers prior to the eruption of maculopapular rash. On follow-up, all six infants developed maculopapular rash with the subsidence of fever at the end of the fourth febrile day. Human herpesvirus 6 was isolated from the peripheral blood mononuclear cells during the acute phase of the illness and HHV 6 specific genome was also detected in these cells by nested polymerase chain reaction. All the six infants showed seroconversion for both specific IgG and IgM to the isolated virus. This study suggests that the presence of uvulo-palatoglossal junctional ulcers could be a useful early clinical sign of exanthem subitum due to human herpesvirus 6.  (+info)

The association of uvulo-palatoglossal junctional ulcers with exanthem subitum: a 10-year paediatric outpatient study. (8/70)

A 10-year follow-up of children having exanthem subitum (ES) seen in an outpatient paediatric clinic, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia shows that uvulo-palatoglossal junctional (UPJ) ulcer is a reliable early clinical sign of ES. During this period, 1,977 children (1,086 males, 891 females) had adequate follow-up from the age of 3 months to 24 months old. 897 children (478 males, 419 females) were noted to have UPJ ulcers. Of these 897 children, 855 (459 males, 396 females) presented with the classical clinical features of ES of maculopapular rash following 3 to 4 days of fever. The positive predictive value and the negative predictive value of UPJ ulcers in the clinical diagnosis of ES are 95.3% and 100% respectively. Among the 855 children with clinical features of ES, a provisional diagnosis of ES could be made in 781 children during the pre-eruptive phase by the presence of the UPJ ulcers. The other 74 children already had the rash at the time of consultation at the clinic. The peak age of occurrence of ES was 6 months old with 98.2% of the total cases of ES seen between the age of 4 and 12 months. There was no significant gender difference in the incidence of ES nor any seasonal variation. Mild to moderate diarrhoea was the other commonly associated clinical feature which usually presented from the third febrile day onwards.  (+info)

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 ...
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 ...
Uvulars are consonants articulated with the back of the tongue against or near the uvula, that is, further back in the mouth than velar consonants. Uvulars may be stops, fricatives, nasals, trills, or approximants, though the IPA does not provide a separate symbol for the approximant, and the symbol for the voiced fricative is used instead. Uvular affricates can certainly be made but are rare: they occur in some southern High-German dialects, as well as in a few African and Native American languages. (Ejective uvular affricates occur as realizations of uvular stops in Lillooet, Kazakh and Georgian.) Uvular consonants are typically incompatible with advanced tongue root, and they often cause retraction of neighboring vowels. The uvular consonants identified by the International Phonetic Alphabet are: English has no uvular consonants, and they are unknown in the indigenous languages of Australia and the Pacific, though uvular consonants separate from velar consonants are believed to have existed ...
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).. ...

Cleft uvula The uvula, the little V-shaped fleshy mass hanging from the back of the soft palate, is cleft. Cleft uvula is a common minor anomaly occurring in about 1% of whites and 10% of native Americans. Persons with a cleft uvula should not have their adenoids removed because, without the adenoids, they cannot achieve proper closure between the soft palate and pharynx while speaking and develop hypernasal speech. Also called bifid uvula. ...
Some 45 percent of normal adults snore at least occasionally, and 25 percent are habitual snorers. Problem snoring is more frequent in males and overweight persons and it usually grows worse with age. Snoring sounds are caused by an obstruction to the free flow of air through the passages at the back of the mouth and nose.. Only recently have the adverse medical effects of snoring and its association with Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) and Upper Airway Resistance Syndrome (UARS) been recognized. Various methods are used to alleviate snoring and/or OSA. They include behavior modification, sleep positioning, Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP), jaw adjustment techniques, Uvulopalatopharyngoplasty (UPPP), and Laser Assisted Uvula Palatoplasty (LAUP).. What Is Laser Assisted Uvula Palatoplasty (LAUP)?. LAUP allows treatment of snoring and mild OSA by removing the obstruction in your airway in an outpatient setting under local anesthesia.

English has no uvular consonants, and they are unknown in the indigenous languages of Australia and the Pacific. Uvular consonants are however found in many African and Middle-Eastern languages, most notably Arabic, and in Native American languages. In parts of the Caucasus mountains and northwestern North America, nearly every language has uvular stops and fricatives. Two uvular Rs are found in north-western Europe. It was once thought that they spread from northern French, but some linguists[who?] believe that contact does not explain the appearance of all uvular Rs in Europe.. The voiceless uvular plosive is transcribed as [q] in both the IPA and SAMPA. It is pronounced somewhat like the voiceless velar plosive [k], but with the middle of the tongue further back on the velum, against or near the uvula. The most familiar use will doubtless be in the transliteration of Arabic place names such as Qatar and Iraq into English, though, since English lacks this sound, this is generally pronounced as ...
You might be wondering if there are any complications from having an enlarged uvula. Have you noticed any changes in your voice or the making of certain sounds? Because the uvula is believed to have a role in helping make a number of sounds, you might experience some differences (albeit minor) from swelling. What about your sleep? Is your slumber disrupted due to difficulty breathing? A swollen uvula can be associated with snoring and sleep apnea. Folks with a swollen uvula may also experience nasal or sinus congestion, feeling like a foreign body is in their throat, or a gagging or coughing reflex (especially when lying down). In serious cases, the swelling could obstruct the airway and impede breathing, swallowing, or speaking. If youre experiencing any of these, its recommended that you seek medical attention as soon as possible.. If you continue to have problems, you may want to meet with your health care provider. There are several options that they may be able to suggest that can assist ...

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.

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.

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.
Sleeping on your back can worsen the effects of enlarged tonsils, uvula, or tongue. As you lie on your back, gravity pulls your tongue and other soft tissues toward the back of your throat, making airway obstruction much more likely. To avoid this obstruction, try sleeping on your side instead of on your back. If you are experience persistent enlargement of your uvula, tongue, or tonsils, you should see your doctor or an otolaryngologist to determine the best treatments for you. He or she may suggest an oral device to wear during sleep or may recommend surgical treatment to reduce obstructive tissue in your mouth and throat ...

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 ...
Enlarged uvula can lead to snoring and obstructive sleep apnea. Among normal adults, 45 percent are occasional snorers and 25 percent are habitual snorers. Most commonly seen in males, snoring may be a result of an obstruction, so it should be considered a serious symptom to address with your doctor.. There are numerous causes for snoring, including poor muscle tone of the tongue and throat, excessive bulkiness of throat tissue, long soft palate or uvula, or obstructed nasal airways.. Snoring can result in a health condition known as obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), which is when a person stops breathing numerous times throughout the night. Being overweight or having high blood pressure can contribute to OSA, but another common cause is an enlarged uvula, the dangling piece of flesh at the back of the mouth.. The role of uvula is not fully understood, but its possible functions are assisting with speech formation and production of saliva.. Inflamed or swollen uvula is the main symptom of a health ...

Broadly viewed, the human mouth is a cave. Stalactite upper incisors fit neatly into stalagmite lowers. A salivary river keeps the cave moist and feeds a host of small organisms that populate this cave. The uvula, a skin flap at the back of the mouth, hangs down into the entry to the air passage into the body. (If you wish to read about the biology of the uvula, please check out any number of other sites.) The uvula has a linguistic function in the formation of some consonants. In some individuals, when the uvula flops against the back of the mouth cavity during sleep, a blockage of air flow occurs and the supply of oxygen is cut for a few instants. This problem can apparently be more than mere snoring; it can be a serious medical issue called sleep apnea. Thus, the uvula serves as a sort of a dam to the flow of air ...
Galan (122-199 AD) believed that the uvula was important in speech and contributed to the beauty of the voice. In modern times, many theories have also been put forward with regards to the role of the uvula in speech: the uvula prevents excessive nasality of the voice by controlling resonance of the air column over the larynx; the uvula is important in the production of uvular sounds present in French, Arabic and some West African languages and palatal trill found in some parts of Yorkshire in the United Kingdom.. ...

The amount of tissue removed will depend upon the location and severity of each patients individual condition. If an enlarged tongue is a factor in the patients sleep apnea, the doctor may also remove a small portion of the tongue, which is called a uvulopalatopharyngoglossoplasty.. The surgeon may use either a scalpel or newer laser methods such as LAUP, or Laser-Assisted Uvulopalatoplasty, in order to perform the UPPP. This laser technique is more precise, less invasive and also has a higher rate of success than UPPP.. UPPP usually requires 3 to 5 separate procedures, since only a small amount of tissue may be removed at a time.. Recovery usually takes about three weeks, during which time patients may experience difficulty swallowing. After the procedure, a sleep study may be required to determine if sleep apnea has improved.. ...

Uvulopalatopharyngoplasty (UPPP) is a widely accepted surgical procedure for the treatment of obstructive sleep apnea/hypopnea syndrome (OSAHS)1 and the only one recommended by the American Sleep Disorders Association. Due to the inaccuracy of current diagnostic methods for preoperatively determining the level of upper airway obstruction in OSAHS patients, as well as the inherent technical limitations of UPPP in dealing the relevant anatomical factors, success rates in attainingobjective cure of about 40% after a long-term follow-up are far from desirable.2 Recent studies, however, have established a staging system that can result in success rates as high as 80% in select patients3 (see Chapter 16: Friedman Tongue Position and the Staging of Obstructive Sleep Apnea/Hypopnea Syndrome). In addition, UPPP is often part of a multilevel treatment strategy, which signifi-cantly improves success rates (see Chapter 17: Multilevel Surgery for Obstructive Sleep Apnea/Hypopnea).

THE PALATE. � THE HARD PALATE is formed by the palatal process of the superior maxillary and the palate bone, and is covered by a thick dense structure composed of mucous membrane and [sp: periosteum]. It forms the roof of the mouth and presents a median raphe and corrugated surface. � THE SOFT PALATE is a movable fold of mucous membrane suspended from the posterior border of the hard palate and inclosing an aponeurosis, vessels, nerves, glands and the following muscles on each side: tensor palati, levator palati, palato-glossus, palato-pharyngeous, and azygos uvulae, the latter uniting with its fellow to form the uvula. � THE ANTERIOR PILLARS of the FAUCES are folds of mucous membrane, arching downward and forward from the base of the uvula to the base of the tongue and inclosing the palato-glossus muscles. � THE POSTERIOR PILLARS of the FAUCES are folds of mucous membrane arching downward and backward from the base of the uvula to the sides of the pharynx and inclosing the ...
DIPHTHERIA case by Dr.E.B.Nash (Eugene Beauharnais NASH)- Girl, age 14 years, light hair, blue eyes, nervous temperament. Had been sick several days. Looking into the throat I found the tonsils and uvula greatly swollen ; the tonsils so much so that the throat was almost completely closed and the uvula hanging (very much elongated and looking like a bag of water) down in front of and against them. The whole throat presented a decidedly œdematous appearance. Both tonsils were patched with yellowish membrane, with a ring of the same around the uvula. Breath exceedingly offensive. There was stopping of the nose (the breathing could be heard across two large rooms), swallowing was almost impossible on account of the great pain, which streaked up into both ears ; there was prostration, restlessness with tossing about, sleeplessness, pulse 130, skin alternately hot and dry, and then perspiring profusely (very characteristic of Apis). Here was a case in which one remedy was clearly and perfectly ...

Using oral surgery to help, heal, or cure sleep apnea consists of an oral surgery that seeks to remove the excess tissue in the throat that is vibrating and blocking the upper air passages. One oral surgical procedure is an Uvulopalatopharyngoplasty (UPPP).. Uvulopalatopharyngoplasty (UPPP) procedure involves removing the excess tissue from the upper mouth and throat. This procedure is performed in a hospital under general anesthesia.. Maxillomandibular advancement is another procedure that assists in curing sleep apnea. This procedure involves the upper and lower part of the jaw. In this procedure, the jaw is moved forward from the rest of the facial bones. This allows more room behind the soft palate, thereby reducing the obstruction. Finally a Tracheostomy is a last ditch effort when other treatments have failed. This involves the surgeon inserting a tube in your throat so you can breathe. It is covered during the day, but opens at night while you sleep. All of these oral surgeries are ...
Uvulopalatopharyngoplasty, or UPPP, is the most common surgical procedure performed for the treatment of obstructive sleep apnea. The procedure involves removal of redundant tissue from the lower palate (roof of mouth), including the uvula, and then suturing the cut edges of the remaining tissue together. However it is frequently noted by surgeons that sutures placed in the roof of the mouth do not stay intact. Also, in standard tonsillectomy, which involves removal of the tonsils and thus creation of a wound near the palate, no suturing is used, which does not seem to affect how the area heals. Previous studies have shown no significant differences in complication rates, post-operative pain, or symptom outcomes in patients undergoing tonsillectomy either with or without suture repair of the tonsillectomy wound. In this study we will examine whether suture repair following UPPP has any effect on post-operative pain, healing, or treatment success in terms of symptom resolution or post-operative ...

Laser-assisted uvula palatoplasty [ LAUP]: A laser surgery for snoring procedure removes the airway obstruction. This snoring treatment is performed under local anesthesia in a doctors office and is intended for snorers and for people with mild obstructive sleep apnea. The doctor uses a small hand-held laser beam to shorten the soft palate and remove the uvula. Removing excess tissue enlarges your airway and reduces vibration. Treatments of snoring are based on the severity of your snoring. You may need two to five sessions, each lasting about 30 minutes. These treatments of snoring occur four to six weeks apart. Laser surgery for snoring isnt advised for occasional or light snoring, but its an option if your snoring is loud and disruptive. Laser surgery for snoring isnt recommended for sleep apnea ...
A dental appliance having increased or decreased thickness between an upper shell and a lower shell in combination with a hinging mechanism and a system and a method for treating malocclusions are provided. The dental appliance may have an upper shell and a lower shell which receive upper teeth and lower teeth, respectively, of a user. The upper shell and the lower shell may be attached at a hinge. The dental appliance may have an increased thickness between the upper shell and the lower shell as well as an increased thickness of the hinge. In an embodiment, the dental appliance may have a decreased vertical thickness and an insertable hinging mechanism. The dental appliance may then extend treatment of malocclusions to the rear teeth of the user and may correct a dental condition, such as, for example, overbite, overjet, open bite, crowding, rotations, spacing, cross-bites, gummy smiles and temporomandibular joint problems.
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 ...

Its that time of year. Allergies and clogged ears are common. The spring brings new plant growth which is created by pollination. Pollen in the atmosphere gets into our air passages and causes inflammation and even infections in some cases. The reaction of our sinus membranes when the pollen enters our airways is to swell up. Sometimes it gets deep in our sinus cavity, near the back of our throat, where the Eustachian tube empties at the end of our ear canal. Did you know the ear canal drains into the back of our throat behind the uvula? The nasal canal drains into our throat behind the uvula as well. To learn why regular nasal sprays cannot reach the Eustachain tube when used as directed read this article. To learn why allergies and colds cause clogged ears keep reading below ...
I just wanted to inform you about a new bookcast that I am doing at UvulaAudio. We will be presenting the young adult science fiction novel Rip Foster Rides the Gray Planet. It was written by Harold Goodwin (aka Blake Savage) in 1952. You may remember that Goodwin also wrote Divers Down which we presented a couple of months ago. Rip Foster concerns the first mission of a young, newly commissioned officer (Lieutenant R.I.P. Foster) in the Space Corps Special Operations division.Although published in the 1950s, the book has withstood the test of time and does not seem all that dated. Its actual astrophysics are very true to life and apparently quite accurate. The only problematic aspects of the book are all the assumptions about the presence of life on Mars and Venus. Several facets of the story will remind you of the original Star Trek - especially the Federation that Rip works for. It is possible that Gene Roddenberry was inspired by Goodwins text. We will be simulcasting the book on both ...
Keratoacanthoma There is a supreme deity called Medulla Oblongata . Medulla existed amongst himself alone, until his thoughts created lesser spirits bearing the name of Buccarium , the Dental Ones. As Medulla spoke to the Buccarium, he promoted various themes of music. Each spirit of the Buccarium sang independently, with no coordination. But as time passed, they slowly grew together in harmony. One day Medulla called together the Buccarium and gave them a great theme. The Buccarium amazed by this sang with great conviction and verve. At this point Medulla was content, his offspring were singing flawless music. But as the theme advanced, Uvula began to sing his unique imaginations that were not in accord with Medulla. This discord began to entwine in the music of the Buccarium. The beauty and grace that surrounded Medulla was now amid darkness and rage for which Uvula created. Surrounded by storm laden skies and ice cold waters, Medulla rose amid this evilness and raised his left hand a new ...

The noisy sounds of snoring occur when there is a partial obstruction to the flow of air through the passages at the back of the mouth and nose. This area is the collapsible part of the airway where the tongue and upper throat meet the soft palate and uvula. Snoring occurs when these structures strike each other and vibrate during breathing. Apnea occurs when the obstruction of air flow is more severe, leading to reduced, compromised, or completely blocked air flow while trying to breathe.. In children, snoring may be a sign of problems with the tonsils and adenoids. In adults, the site of obstruction may not be as simple to identify. Obstruction in an adult may be due to a combination of factors in different areas, making it more challenging to identify and treat.. What Other Factors Contribute to Snoring and Sleep Apnea?. Poor muscle tone in the tongue and throat-When muscles are too relaxed, the tongue falls backward into the airway, or the throat muscles draw in from the sides into the ...

Snoring occurs when there is an obstructed flow of air through the mouth and nose areas. Sixty-seven percent of adults suffer from snoring, and it is estimated that over 120 million people in the United States snore every single night. Snoring can originate from a variety of different causes, but it usually stems from an obstructed nasal airway, a deviated septum, nasal polyps, weak throat and tongue muscles, bulky throat tissue or a long soft palate and/or uvula. Habitual snorers are commonly at risk for sleep apnea, as well as chronic tiredness, unnecessary strain on the heart and a reduction in their overall quality of life.. Your dentist can help you reduce chronic snoring by ensuring an unobstructed airflow through your mouth and nose. A custom-molded plastic oral appliance can be fitted to hold the lower jaw in its proper position at night so that you enjoy a healthy airflow and a good nights sleep.. Read more about Snoring ...

Snoring occurs when air flows past relaxed tissues in the throat causing the tissues to vibrate as one breathes, which creates irritating sounds. The irregular airflow may be caused by a passageway blockage and may influence the soft palate and uvula to collapse.. The principle behind Oral Myology (OM) Therapy is that working the orofacial muscles with targeted exercises can help to tone and strengthen the tissue and train it to remain in place so the airway will remain unobstructed. Many of the exercises focus on strengthening the tongue, while others focus on toning the airway itself, through a series of vocalization, breathing, and swallowing exercises.. By using sequential exercises to develop the proper tongue rest position and swallowing, activating the palatoglossus and genioglossus muscle, developing a lip seal and normalizing the breathing, the patients snoring frequency and intensity will reduce. In fact, research has shown that Orofacial Myology can reduce sleep apnoea (AHI) by 50% ...

So in the middle of all this I finally went to see a doctor about this sleep-related problem Ive had for some time. Specifically, it seems that I have fairly severe sleep apnea, which apart from the long-term health risks means that I generally feel quite tired and shitty a lot of the time, as I spend my sleeping hours trying to murder myself by asphyxiation - so anyway the doctor told me this was unusual in people who arent overweight (Im closer to the skinnier end of the range, hey) and took a look into my throat and reckons the problem probably lies therein. I have big tonsils and whats called a double uvula, crazy mutant freak that I am, apparently this is the root of the problem. The doctor told me that this is probably a case for surgery. Great. So anyway : ...
While most people are aware that they have tonsils, the details often get fuzzy from there. Some people even confuse the tonsils with the uvula, the loose skin flap hanging down near the back of the throat.. The tonsils are part of the bodys disease defense system, the lymphatic system. The tonsils job is to stop toxins, viral germs, fungi and bacteria before they can travel down the throat and reach the major organs.. Because of this important job, the tonsils include a system of grooves, crypts and crevices designed to trap unwelcome matter so it can be broken down by the white blood cells and flushed after being rendered harmless.. However, in some people, the grooves, crypts and crevices are deeper and more prone to hoarding this matter too far inside the tonsils for them to be flushed out normally with the saliva.. When this occurs, tonsil stones, or tonsil calculi, can form and grow larger. The larger they grow, the more they get stuck inside the tonsils. For this reason, using a water ...
Age of onset is usually between 6 and 20 years, with peak onset around puberty. Keratotic papules appear predominantly on the upper trunk and may involve the face, scalp, neck, hands (palms), feet (soles), and limb flexures (axillae, groins). The papillomatous masses may become malodorous. Nail dystrophy manifests as subungual hyperkeratosis, fragility, longitudinal ridging and splitting, and longitudinal red and white lines. Mucous membranes, such as lips, buccal mucosa, hard palate, alveolar ridges, uvula, pharynx, larynx, and vulva, are rarely involved. However, if involved, papules, fissures, crusts, and ulcers may result. Secondary cutaneous infection (herpes virus, bacterial) is a frequent complication. The disease is exacerbated by sunlight or sunburn. Occasionally, patients suffer from a seizure disorder and mild mental retardation. ...
Pallister W syndrome is an extremely rare congenital disorder characterized by a distinctive facies, along with mental retardation, speech problems, bone deformities, and seizures. The facial features include prominent mandible, pugilistic appearance, orofacial cleft, broad flat nasal bridge and jaw, partial adontia, high broad forehead, broad uvula, widely spaced and slanting eyes, and/or palpabral fissures. The skeletal abnormalities involve mainly the limbs and include cubitus valgus and limited elbow movement due to subluxation. Some patients may also show some signs of spasticity.. Very few cases of Pallister W syndrome have been reported worldwide. More than half of these are males. Diagnosis is based on the clinical features. The differentials to be considered include Oto-Palato-Digital syndrome, Frontometaphyseal Dysplasia, and Larsen syndrome. Treatment is symptomatic. Surgical correction of the clefting of the lip and palate, followed by speech therapy may be required. Seizures can be ...

Advancing the maxilla can have affects on the nose as you have described. Swelling still may be why you have the sensation of your uvula resting on your tongue. The maxillary advancement would have to be pretty significant to usually have this problem. Without examining you pre & post-op, it is tough to comment on that. Revisions can be done at anytime but since you are only 5 weeks post-op, I would recommend that you have alittle more patience before making that type of decision because soft tissue and bone healing after surgery can take considerably longer (6-9 months). If you still are not satisfied, get another opinion.. ...
The velie das Gaumensegel consists of the velum and the uvula together. In other words, it is the moveable rear portion of the roof of the mouth, which can be raised in order to close off the nasal passage as we do when swimming underwater without holding our nose.. In speaking, the velie is kept raised to close off the nasal cavity, except when producing nasal or nasalized sounds see 8, below. The nasal cavity die Nasenhohle is the passage through which air can pass by way of the nose to and from the throat. It can be and normally is sealed off during speech, except to produce a nasal nasal, der Nasenlaut or nasalized nasaliert sound. In producing a nasal sound, the air from the lungs does not exit by way of the oral cavity, but exclusively through the 10 Phonetics nasal cavity, whereas a nasalized sound is an oral sound produced with the velie not sealed and consequently with some air passing simultaneously through the nasal cavity.. The oral cavity die Mundhohle is simply the mouth. Sounds ...

I have a call into them, but they still havent called back with what to take! So I am really needing some more prayers right now! Thanks so much! ...
