Evaluation in Patients With Obstructive Sleep Apnea That Had Undergone Diagnosis and Surgical Treatment

2016-12-01 16:08:22 | BioPortfolio

Summary

Drug induced sleep endoscopy (DISE) is an increasingly performed procedure, offering dynamic upper airway evaluation during artificial sleep before surgical treatment for patients with obstructed sleep apnea (OSA).

DISE is a safe procedure, easily practicable, valid and reliable. We consider it a fundamental clinical procedure that is essential before choosing the surgical treatment. Our results so far suggest that a multilevel collapse is significantly associated with higher apnea hypopnea index values. We think that the weight did not play a significant role in RDI reduction. Our results till now show that tailored surgery based on DISE may leverage sleep surgeries outcome significantly, presenting 70% success rate based on our experience In this study we aim to evaluate surgery results in patients who underwent DISE prior to their surgery in comparison to their condition prior to the treatment.

Description

Drug induced sleep endoscopy (DISE) is an increasingly performed procedure, offering dynamic upper airway evaluation during artificial sleep before surgical treatment for patients with obstructed sleep apnea (OSA).

Aim: To evaluate the value of DISE for tailoring the proper treatment for patients with snoring and OSA.

DISE is a safe procedure, easily practicable, valid and reliable. We consider it a fundamental clinical procedure that is essential before choosing the surgical treatment. Our results so far suggest that a multilevel collapse is significantly associated with higher apnea hypopnea index values. We think that the weight did not play a significant role in RDI reduction. Our results till now show that tailored surgery based on DISE may leverage sleep surgeries outcome significantly, presenting 70% success rate based on our experience In this study we aim to evaluate surgery results in patients who underwent DISE prior to their surgery in comparison to their condition prior to the treatment.

The results of the DISE based treatment will be compared with literature data from patients who underwent the surgery without DISE.

Method:

A retrospective follow-up study. Patients with snoring and OSA, had sleep study and had DISE before deciding on the surgical treatment. DISE findings were reported using the NOHL and VOTE classifications systems; site, degree of airway narrowing and configuration of obstruction. Patients underwent tailored surgery based on DISE findings included multi-level surgery; palate, tonsils, base of tongue and epiglottis.

After examining the results of the surgery in the patients, a comparison will be made based on sleep laboratory parameters (RDI, minimum saturation, degree of sleep apnea, degree of snoring) with data from the literature for patients who did not undergo DISE. On the whole, the degree of improvement in the patient's condition will be assessed.

We would like to show preference in surgery outcome in patients who were diagnosed using DISE.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Formal programs for assessing drug prescription against some standard. Drug utilization review may consider clinical appropriateness, cost effectiveness, and, in some cases, outcomes. Review is usually retrospective, but some analysis may be done before drugs are dispensed (as in computer systems which advise physicians when prescriptions are entered). Drug utilization review is mandated for Medicaid programs beginning in 1993.

The concurrent or retrospective review by practicing physicians or other health professionals of the quality and efficiency of patient care practices or services ordered or performed by other physicians or other health professionals (From The Facts On File Dictionary of Health Care Management, 1988).

Review of the medical necessity of hospital or other health facility admissions, upon or within a short time following an admission, and periodic review of services provided during the course of treatment.

Review articles can cover a wide range of subject matter at various levels of completeness and comprehensiveness based on analyses of literature that may include research findings. The review may reflect the state of the art. It also includes reviews as a literary form.
