  • MAXILLARY, MANDIBULAR, AND HYOID ADVANCEMENT - AN ALTERNATIVE TO TRACHEOSTOMY IN OBSTRUCTIVE SLEEP-APNEA SYNDROME OTOLARYNGOLOGY-HEAD AND NECK SURGERY Riley, R. W., Powell, N. B., Guilleminault, C., NINOMURCIA, G. 1986; 94 (5): 584-588

    Abstract:

    Nine patients with severe obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS)--for whom several therapeutic approaches, including palatopharyngoplasty, had failed--were treated with a combined maxillary, mandibular, and hyoid advancement. Objective evaluation--performed before and 4 to 18 months after surgery, using nocturnal polysomography--indicated that the OSAS had improved or had disappeared. This surgical approach is beneficial for specific cases of OSAS, which can be identified by mandatory presurgical tests.
