Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) syndrome is a respiratory sleep disorder characterized by partial or complete recurrent episodes of upper airway collapse that occur during the night. The OSA manifests with a reduction (hypopnea) or complete cessation (apnea) of airflow in the upper airways, associated with breathing effort. OSA is a frequent and often underestimated pathology affecting between 2 and 5% of the middle-aged population. Typical nocturnal symptoms are the persistent snoring and awakenings with dyspnea sensation. On the other hand, diurnal symptoms could be sleepiness, headaches, asthenia, neurological disorders, and impaired personal relationships. Surgery of the velo-pharyngeal region had a huge evolution going from ablative techniques (UP3 and LAUP) to remodeling techniques of the pharyngeal lateral walls.

Abstract

Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) syndrome is a respiratory sleep disorder characterized by partial or complete recurrent episodes of upper airway collapse that occur during the night. The OSA manifests with a reduction (hypopnea) or complete cessation (apnea) of airflow in the upper airways, associated with breathing effort. OSA is a frequent and often underestimated pathology affecting between 2 and 5% of the middle-aged population. Typical nocturnal symptoms are the persistent snoring and awakenings with dyspnea sensation. On the other hand, diurnal symptoms could be sleepiness, headaches, asthenia, neurological disorders, and impaired personal relationships. Surgery of the velo-pharyngeal region had a huge evolution going from ablative techniques (UP3 and LAUP) to remodeling techniques of the pharyngeal lateral walls.
