    Sammanfattning : Enthusiasm for uvulopalatopharyngoplasty (UPPP) in the treatment of mild-to-moderate obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS) has declined in recent years, partly because of a lower success rate over time and partly because of adverse effects. In more severe cases, the patients are generally treated with nasal continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP). LÄS MER

  2. 2. Upper airway surgery in obstructive sleep apnoea : descriptive, observational and randomised controlled studies

    Detta är en avhandling från Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Dept of Clinical Science, Intervention and Technology

    Sammanfattning : Obstructive sleep apnoea syndrome (OSAS) is a general health problem which causes daytime sleepiness, impaired quality of life and increased morbidity and mortality. A narrow upper airway anatomy is a common cause of OSAS, and tracheostomy was the initial surgical treatment for OSAS. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Pharyngeal surgery and epidemiology in sleep apnea
