Abstract

Obstructive sleep apnea is a condition for which palatal surgery in isolation has been shown to have limited success. In comparison, palatal procedures combined with other surgical approaches that address the multiple sites of obstruction in the upper aerodigestive tract seem to have improved success in the carefully selected patient.
