Upper airway stimulation (UAS) is successful in treating obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) showing improved outcomes, length of stay, and readmission compared to transoral robotic surgery (TORS).
Tissue eosinophil aggregates appear to be the largest driving factor for increased prednisone requirements after sinus surgery to control mucosal disease than the mere presence of eosinophils.
