423 Possible Causes for High Arched Palate, Sleep Apnea

  • Down Syndrome

    Mouth: Protruding tongue (small narrow palate). High arched palate. Neck: Loose skin on nape of neck. Hands: Single palmar crease. Short little finger.[patient.info] It is an effective treatment of sleep apnea in select adult patients because it allows for alleviation of tongue base collapse, improving airway obstruction.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] characteristic craniofacial features, such as an anteriorly and posteriorly flattened head, dysplastic low-set ears, small nose, depressed nasal bridge, protruding tongue, high-arched[symptoma.com]

  • Marfan Syndrome

    arch palate, crowded teeth RESP: emphysema, spontaneous pneumothorax, pectus excavatum, tracheomalacia, OSA, kyphoscoliosis CVS: dilated ascending aorta, dissecting aneurysms[lifeinthefastlane.com] Marfan syndrome also has been linked to sleep apnea .[web.archive.org] Potentially important abnormalities include hyperextensible joints (possible positioning implications), high arched palate (airway implications), pectus excavatum , and kyphoscoliosis[openanesthesia.org]

  • Obstructive Sleep Apnea

    […] enlarged adenoids , an enlarged inferior turbinate (turbinates are finger-like structures in your nose that heat and moisten the air you breathe), nasal valve collapse, or a high-arch[entnet.org] Among 1022 enrolled patients, 697 (68 percent) had the obstructive sleep apnea syndrome.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] enlarged adenoids, an enlarged inferior turbinate (turbinates are finger-like structures in your nose that heat and moisten the air you breathe), nasal valve collapse, or a high-arch[entnet.org]

  • Sleep Apnea Syndrome

    […] the childhood age range, related clinical aspects may be present, such as mouth breathing syndrome and its orthodontic and craniofacial complications such as crossbite, high-arched[intechopen.com] sleep apnea syndrome and CSA (21.7 18.6 in complex sleep apnea syndrome, 32.9 30.8 in CSA vs 2.14 3.14 in OSAHS; p .001).[web.archive.org] , arched and narrow hard palate (causes a narrow and crowded mouth) Overbite of upper teeth Retrognathia or micrognathia Obstructed nasal passages Evidence of hypothyroidism[aafp.org]

  • Adenoid Hypertrophy

  • Rubinstein-Taybi Syndrome

    (RTS) is a rare disorder affecting 1 of 300,000 people, characterized by growth, mental and motor retardation, small stature, broad thumbs and toes, characteristic face, high-arched[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] apnea Obstructive sleep apnea Ref: Al-Kharashi, Abu El-Asrar: Int Ophthalmol 2007;27:201 Abu El-Asrar et al: Eye 2008;22:1124 23.[slideshare.net] CASE: Craniofacial abnormalities including: microcephaly, underdeveloped maxilla, micrognathia, high arched palate, malocclusion, down-slanting palpebral fissures, thick eyelashes[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Allergic Rhinitis

    arched palate, and malocclusion associated with chronic mouth breathing; cobblestoning in the posterior pharynx secondary to chronic nasal congestion and postnasal drainage[emedicine.medscape.com] Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), a sleep disorder in which breathing is briefly and repeatedly interrupted during sleep, is linked with allergic rhinitis.[sleepfoundation.org] […] vasodilation or nasal congestion Oropharynx: "Cobblestoning," that is, streaks of lymphoid tissue on the posterior pharynx; tonsillar hypertrophy; and malocclusion (overbite) and a high-arched[emedicine.com]

  • Crouzon Syndrome

    The common features are crowding of teeth, hypodontia (missing some teeth), posterior lateral crossbite and narrow/high-arched palate.[symptoma.com] PURPOSE: Pediatric patients with Crouzon syndrome have great possibilities of suffering from obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), which is mainly due to midfacial hypoplasia and[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] apnea (OSA).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
