Salvage of failed palate procedures for sleep-disordered breathing

Abstract

Surgical procedures designed to shorten, stiffen, or otherwise modify the palate may provide relief of upper airway collapse at the palatal level in patients with sleep-disorder breathing. For patients who fail, or suffer a relapse after an initial surgical success, salvage surgical techniques may be appropriate. Although the principles of these salvage techniques are similar to the commonly performed primary surgical procedures, subtle modifications of the approach are sometimes required, and these are emphasized herein.
