Abstract

  Retropalatal region is considered the most common site of obstruction in obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) [1]. At our institution (as other modern surgeons of obstructive sleep apnea), we believe in and follow the concept of obtaining expansion and stabilization of the collapsible pharyngeal tissues instead of removal of such tissue via implementation of tissue-preservation, non-ablative techniques and we consider this as the recent evolution in surgical treatment of OSA.

Keywords: Retropalatal Region; Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA)
