  Radiofrequency proves to be an useful tool for snoring and obstructive sleep apnoea cases. Its advantages include relative precision in incision making, relatively bloodless fields if used appropriately, decrease postoperative pain and excellent healing with fibrosis which aids in stiffening tissues. Radiofrequency is high frequency alternating current used to ablate (cut/coagulate) tissues. Radiofrequency ablation treatment can be applied to nasal turbinates, soft palate, tongue base, tonsils etc and it can be used in various surgeries in the cutting mode to improve obstructive sleep disordered breathing.
