Upper airway stimulation is a treatment used to address OSA by electrically stimulating select levels of the hypoglossal nerve to induce contraction of the genioglossus muscle and enlarge airways.
Treatment for obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) continues to advance, from the increasingly sophisticated realm of wearables to new techniques for implantable devices.
Hypoglossal nerve stimulator implantation in an ambulatory surgical center is safe and is more efficient than in an HOPD and may also be more cost-effective.
This interval update from the ADHERE registry outcomes demonstrates efficacy, safety, and high adherence rates for UAS therapy.
The role for drug-induced sleep endoscopy (DISE) in counseling candidates for HNS extends beyond excluding complete concentric collapse related to the velum.
BRP and ESP procedure outcomes are comparable in the improvement of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) with palatal collapse, although further trials and long-term follow-up are needed.
