Screening for depression in patients with OSA would be worthwhile because there is a high rate of comorbidity, and both are intertwined in their pathophysiology and management.
TRIO Best Practices
ESS can be considered in patients that are refractory to medical management as a non-destructive option, as risk to hearing is low.
Available data suggest that complication rates of alloplastic implants are similar to those seen with autologous costal cartilage and may be acceptable in select patient populations.
There are no data to suggest that delayed tracheostomy offers a morbidity or mortality advantage.
The existing literature still suggests that the highest locoregional control and survival rates are achieved with surgery.
Both septoplasty and rhinoplasty are associated with mostly mild pain, and postoperative opioid requirements are quite low.
Management remains controversial because there is no universally accepted consensus on the threshold for surgical intervention, appropriate treatment strategy, frequency of surveillance, and ablative versus excisional management
