Upper airway modifications after weight loss: a systematic review
Carolina Ferraz de Paula Soares, Michel Burihan Cahali

  • Weight loss promotes an increase in the area of the retropalatal region, especially in the lateral pharyngeal region.

  • There is volumetric reduction of several soft structures of the pharynx, with emphasis on fat and tongue fat deposits.

  • The airway height decreased, moving the hyoid closer to the posterior nasal spine and reducing the distance between hyoid to chin.

  • Few studies with a good level of scientific evidence objectively describe the changes in the airways caused by weight loss.

R. Mezzalira, R.S.M. Bittar

  • Post caloric recruitment index is the ratio between cold and warm stimulation.

  • Post caloric recruitment index is useful to identify the affected ear separately.

  • Video head impulse test did not prove to be a good predictor of post caloric recruitment.
