Impact of obstructive sleep apnea on abdominal aortic diameters.
Am. J. Cardiol.

Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
Although obesity has been reported to be a potential risk factor for abdominal aortic dilatation, the impact of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) on the abdominal aortic diameter remains unknown. We retrospectively reviewed 427 patients aged >45 years who underwent polysomnography and abdominal computed tomography from November 2008 to February 2012. Aortic diameters were measured at 3 locations: upper, infrarenal, and lower abdominal aorta. OSA was defined as non-OSA (apnea-hypopnea index [AHI] <10, n = 58), mild to moderate (AHI 10 to 30, n = 167), and severe (AHI ?30, n = 202). Adjusted diameter was not significantly different among OSA severity categories at the upper (21.0, 21.3, and 21.4 mm, respectively) and infrarenal aorta (19.5, 20.2, and 19.9 mm, respectively) but was significantly different at the lower abdominal aorta (17.3, 18.2, and 18.2 mm, respectively, p = 0.006) with larger diameters in patients with OSA. Multivariate linear regression analyses revealed that risk profiles for aortic dilatation varied according to the location and gender and that OSA (AHI ?10) was an independent risk factor for infrarenal and lower abdominal aortic dilatation only in men (? = 0.10 and 0.18, p = 0.049 and 0.001, respectively). In conclusion, OSA may enhance dilatation of the distal abdominal aorta in men.

Differences in associations between visceral fat accumulation and obstructive sleep apnea by sex.

Hide Abstract
The difference in mortality from obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) by sex is an important issue. Visceral fat, a significant risk factor for cardiovascular disease, was reported to be closely related to OSA.

The additive impact of periodic limb movements during sleep on inflammation in patients with obstructive sleep apnea.
Ann Am Thorac Soc
PUBLISHED: 01-18-2014
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
Both periodic limb movements during sleep (PLMS) and obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) are major causes of sleep disorders and have been associated with systemic inflammation and cardiovascular events. However, it is uncertain whether in combination they promote a higher inflammatory response and greater risk of cardiovascular events than each condition alone.

Obesity hypoventilation syndrome in Japan and independent determinants of arterial carbon dioxide levels.
Respirology
PUBLISHED: 01-15-2014
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
Obesity hypoventilation syndrome (OHS) prevalence was previously estimated at 9% in patients with obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA) in Japan. However, the definition of OSA in that study was based on an apnoea-hypopnoea index (AHI) of ? 20/h rather than ? 5/h. Therefore, the prevalence of OHS in OSA was not measured in the same way as for Western countries. Our study objectives were to investigate the characteristics of Japanese patients with OHS.

Hide Abstract
There are no clinical data comparing adherence and quality of life between auto-adjusting positive airway pressure (APAP) and two different flex positive airway pressure (PAP) devices (A-Flex, C-Flex) in patients with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA).

Association between plasma neutrophil gelatinase associated lipocalin level and obstructive sleep apnea or nocturnal intermittent hypoxia.
PLoS ONE
PUBLISHED: 01-14-2013
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
Both obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) and a novel lipocalin, neutrophil gelatinase associated lipocalin (Ngal), have been reported to be closely linked with cardiovascular disease and loss of kidney function through chronic inflammation. However, the relationship between OSA and Ngal has never been investigated.

Pulmonary hemorrhage induced by epileptic seizure.
Heart Lung
PUBLISHED: 06-14-2011
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
We report a 35-year-old man who presented with pulmonary hemorrhage induced by an epileptic seizure. He had experienced recurrent episodes of massive hemoptysis after epileptic seizures since the age of 28 years. He was admitted to Kyoto University Hospital with massive hemoptysis and hypoxia after an epileptic seizure of a few minutes duration. Radiographic signs of infiltrations and hemorrhagic bronchoalveolar lavage fluid were observed. He was intubated and successfully treated with anti-epilepsy drugs and corticosteroids. Epileptic seizures may have induced increased pulmonary vascular permeability and structural damage to the blood-gas barrier, which may have caused pulmonary hemorrhage. Pulmonary hemorrhage could be in the list of differential diagnoses of hemoptysis in patients with epilepsy.

What is Visualize?

JoVE Visualize is a tool created to match the last 5 years of PubMed publications to methods in JoVE's video library.

How does it work?

We use abstracts found on PubMed and match them to JoVE videos to create a list of 10 to 30 related methods videos.

Video X seems to be unrelated to Abstract Y...

In developing our video relationships, we compare around 5 million PubMed articles to our library of over 4,500 methods videos. In some cases the language used in the PubMed abstracts makes matching that content to a JoVE video difficult. In other cases, there happens not to be any content in our video library that is relevant to the topic of a given abstract. In these cases, our algorithms are trying their best to display videos with relevant content, which can sometimes result in matched videos with only a slight relation.
