Surgical Management of Obstructive Sleep Apnea

Surgical management should be considered an important component in the management of patients with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA).

Uvulopalatopharyngoplasty

Uvulopalatopharyngoplasty is a valid treatment of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) in appropriately selected patients.

Nasal Surgery and OSAS

Nasal surgery is a beneficial modality for the treatment of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA).Nasal surgery can facilitate the treatment of OSA using CPAP(Continuous Positive Airway Pressure).  Nasal resistance or obstruction is highly related to CPAP no
