To characterize upper airway volume and morphology in patients with different skeletal patterns of Class II malocclusion compared to Class I.
This article was published in the following journal.
Name: The Angle orthodontist
The primary aim of this study was to assess the differences in the upper airway morphology between responders and non-responders to mandibular advancement splint (MAS) treatment in obstructive sleep a...
To compare the prevalence of cervical vertebral anomalies (CVAs) in different skeletal malocclusions and to evaluate the relationship between upper airway dimension and vertebral anomalies.
Microbes in the airway has been shown to be associated with the pathogenesis of asthma. The upper airway microbiome influences the dysbiosis of the lower airway microbiome. However, to date, the influ...
Endoscopic management of tracheal stenosis may be challenging, especially in the case of complex stenosis placed near the vocal folds, and needing stent placement. Herein, we evaluated the utility of ...
Obesity is a major risk factor for obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). Although greater dimensional changes in the upper airway during wake respiration have been noted in apneics compared to controls, whet...
CT and MRI based measurements of the pediatric airway has changed the age-old cone shape concept of the pediatric airway and define airway shape as elliptical structure. The cone shape was...
The oral appliances (OAs) are considered to be an effective treatment modality for snoring and various forms of obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS). They facilitate the displacement of...
the aim of the study is to establish reference data that could be used for the creation of more accurate three dimensional prediction of soft tissue outcome.
This experimental study aims to evaluate the efficiency of the orthodontic removable traction appliance in the treatment of skeletal class III malocclusion. The study sample will consist o...
Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a common disorder characterized by recurrent collapse of the upper airway during sleep. OSA patients have a small upper airway that is kept patent during w...
A form of bronchial disorder with three distinct components: airway hyper-responsiveness (RESPIRATORY HYPERSENSITIVITY), airway INFLAMMATION, and intermittent AIRWAY OBSTRUCTION. It is characterized by spasmodic contraction of airway smooth muscle, WHEEZING, and dyspnea (DYSPNEA, PAROXYSMAL).
Echocardiography amplified by the addition of depth to the conventional two-dimensional ECHOCARDIOGRAPHY visualizing only the length and width of the heart. Three-dimensional ultrasound imaging was first described in 1961 but its application to echocardiography did not take place until 1974. (Mayo Clin Proc 1993;68:221-40)
The structural changes in the number, mass, size and/or composition of the airway tissues.
The recording of images in three-dimensional form on a photographic film by exposing it to a laser beam reflected from the object under study.
A disorder characterized by an intermittent abnormal VOCAL CORDS movement toward the midline during inspiration or expiration resulting in upper AIRWAY OBSTRUCTION.
