Obstructive sleep apnea syndrome in morbid obesity: effects of intragastric balloon



Obstructive sleep apnea syndrome in morbid obesity: effects of intragastric balloon



Chest 128(2): 618-623



Study objectives: In obese patients, obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS) is attributed to a reduction in pharyngeal cross-sectional area due to peripharyngeal fat deposition. The effect of weight loss on the size of the upper airways of obese subjects is still unknown.
