Abstract [en]

This 10-year follow-up prospective study aimed to evaluate the effects of treatment with a mandibular protruding device (MPD) on respiratory parameters and subjective symptoms in patients with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) or snoring. Seventy-seven consecutive patients diagnosed with OSA or snoring were treated with an MPD. At baseline and the 10-year follow-up, a polygraphic examination and questionnaires on sleep quality were administrated and weight, and neck size was measured. At the 10-year follow-up, we examined 64 of the 77 patients and recorded their current treatment (45 MPD, 9 continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP), and 10 no treatment). For MPD patients, 89 % reported MPD use every night and 9 % several nights a week. Compared to baseline, MPD users with OSA had a significantly decreased oxygen desaturation index (ODI) (p = 0.006) and increased lowest arterial oxygen saturation, SaO(2) nadir (p = 0.007) after 10 years. MPD treatment was successful for 70 % of OSA patients, yet 89 % subjectively considered themselves cured, indicating overestimation of the treatment effect. OSA patients who responded to treatment maintained baseline weight and neck size, while these increased for non-responders. Of the baseline snorers still using an MPD, 93 % maintained an ODI value of < 5. All CPAP users had an ODI value of < 5. Both OSA and snorers using an MPD had significantly fewer self- and relative reports of snoring, apnea, daytime tiredness, and poor night sleep quality (p < 0.001). MPD treatment is well tolerated and effective in a long-term, 10-year perspective. Weight gain may jeopardize MPD effects. Both patients and relatives reported significantly less snoring and fewer periods of apnea.
