Clinical Trial Summary

This clinical trial is a monocentric, prospective, observational and controlled trial (historical cohort control group of healthy non-obese subjects who had Nasal functional exploration for Snoring) as part of current care.

This study concerns the prevalence of obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS). OSAS is elevated in subjects with morbid obesity (BMI≥40) (on average 70%). International recommendations agree on the need to seek OSAS before bariatric surgery because of the high risk of complications.

Increased nasal resistance could also be related to a limitation of inspiratory flow due to an abnormality of the elasticity of the nasal mucosa or "nasal compliance". Adipose infiltration of the nasal mucosa may occur during obesity.

These tissue changes (decreased vaso-erectile tissue and increased adipose tissue) could modify the nasal compliance, which the decrease would be a possible factor of severity of OSAS in obese patients. Screening for an abnormality of compliance could also anticipate a difficulty of equipment for Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) in the case of associated OSAS.

All patients who must have bariatric surgery and get in the criteria are included. They will have to do a medical checkup pre and post-operative (polygraphy + ear/nose/throat assessment (ENT) + Nasal functional exploration). They will be followed for 13 to 24 months.

The main objective of this research is to demonstrate a reduction of at least 30% of nasal compliance in a group of obese subjects (BMI> 35) compared to a control group of healthy subjects.

The secondary objectives are to is to demonstrate an increase of 30% in resistance in patients with BMI> 35 compared to control group and a normalization of nasal compliance 1 year after surgery when their weight is normalized (BMI <30).

A study period of 4 years is planned.
