Sleep Endoscopy



Home | Specialities | Sleep Endoscopy

Sedated Functional Sleep Endoscopy

Sleep Endoscopy refers to a procedure performed under sedation in our MESIARC operation theatres which allows for an assessment of a patient’s airway adequacy (as well as any vibration or associated sounds made during respiration). By coming as close to a natural sleep state as possible, this assessment provides invaluable information in cases of suspected sleep apnea or disruptive snoring, which is often not gathered during a completely awake hospital visit. The specialist is also able to alter head and neck position, and provide airway support during the endoscopy, allowing for effective nonsurgical remedy of the sleep-associated airway narrowing. In cases where airway surgery is found to be indicated, this can often be performed at the same time as the diagnostic endoscopy.

In-Home Sleep Testing with CPAP Titration

In-Home Sleep Testing with CPAP Titration enables patients to undergo sleep studies from the comfort of their own bedroom for a more accurate diagnosis. Your doctor may recommend a sleep study if he suspects you are suffering from obstructive sleep apnea. To perform the in-home sleep testing, the patient will receive a portable monitor that measures activity while they are sleeping, and a CPAP (continuous positive airway pressure) device. The CPAP device is connected to the mouth, and it will automatically titrate, or adjust the amount of air pressure needed to breathe during sleep without causing apnea. For accurate test results, you must sleep for at least two hours on the night of your sleep testing. The next day, you return the monitor and the CPAP device to your doctor, who will interpret the results and create a customized treatment plan for your individual condition.
Otology Master Class
From the Organizing desk

Dear friends,

MESIARC CME is here again. We have always strived to bring you the best in Otology, over the past 10 years, Our live surgery workshops, have focused on cutting edge surgery, detailed teaching, scientific deliberations of the highest order and top class video coverage from one of the most advanced otological theatre suites in the world this time, we are focusing on the enigma of budding otologists - cholesteatoma and Otosclerosis. Two very diverse conditions, but requiring surgical expertise of the highest order to deliver good results. The two-day surgical workshops will feature both myself and a luminary in Otology, Dr. Ashesh Bhumker from Thane, Mumbai and we would be demonstrating in detail the finer aspects of surgical techniques that can be adapted by a keen otologist to sustain good results over time.

We have lined up an array of diverse cases- and the techniques that we intend to demonstrate include minimal access stapedotomy, Laser stapes surgery, stapes surgery with stapes head amputation for tendon preservation, bone obliteration technique for cholesteatoma, a variety of grafting techniques, intact canal wall tympanoplasty for limited cholesteatoma and a series of revision surgeries.

Do send in your registrations early as we have to limit attendance to 70 seats. A smaller crowd is ideal for active discussions which is something so characteristic of MESIARC CME programs and we do not want to deviate from that agenda.

Yours truly,

Manoj MP

Otology in Perspective Live Surgery 2015
From the Organizing desk

Mesiarc brings you a unique live surgical workshop- a demonstration of both endoscopic and microscopic otologic skills.

Otologic surgery is special for its intricate anatomy, extreme precision and attention to detail. Traditionally done with the operating microscope, and now in some centers across the world with the endoscope, the repetoire of the art is widening.

Confusion persists. Advocates of endoscopic work claim that the microscope is passe, and traditional surgeons laugh off the ability of the one handed

The truth lies somewhere in between; there are specific conditions that require either of both of the techniques. Dogmatism, they say, is the end of science.

Mesiarc brings you a unique live surgical workshop- a demonstration of both endoscopic and microscopic otologic skills.

MESIARC has always stood for dissipation of knowledge and the live surgical workshops are not pubilicity events, nor are they grandiose. We have just one agenda- to educate.

This workshop with a difference aims to demonstrate both endoscopic and microsopic skills in otologic surgery, while attempting to define which is more suitable for what. Do come and enjoy!

Yours truly,

Manoj MP
