Can a modified tissue-preserving uvulopalatopharyngoplasty (UPPP) convert retropalatal concentric collapse to anteroposterior or lateral patterns of collapse on drug-induced sleep endoscopy (DISE) in patients who are not candidates for upper airway stimulation (UAS) due to complete circumferential collapse at the velum? BOTTOM LINE A modified UPPP can successfully convert collapse patterns in patients with complete […]
