Drug-Induced Sleep Endoscopy and Our Clınıcal Experıences
Journal of Pharmaceutical Research International,
Aim: This study aims to evaluate the results of drug-induced sleep endoscopy(DISE) patients.
Study Design: Retrospective study.
Place and Duration of Study: Department of otorhinolaryngology between January 2018 and March 2018.
Methodology: A total of 38 patients (32 males,6 females; mean age 42.0±9.11 years; range 23 to 67) Demographic data, apnea-hypopnea indexes and the level of obstruction of the patients were discussed in the light of literature.
Results: Most patients were with mild obstructive sleep apnea (42.1%).Most of the patients had a multilevel obstruction(60.5%). Most commonly seen level of obstruction was soft palate. When the patient's age, sex, BMI(body mass index), AHI(apnea-hypopnea index) and level of obstruction was compared there was not a statistically significant relation. (p>0.05).
Conclusion: There was no difference between the level of obstruction, body mass index and apnea-hypopnea index values. Large research studies are needed to investigate the value of drug-induced sleep endoscopy.
