Description: Obstructive Sleep Apnea/Hypopnea Syndrome (OSAHS) is a commonly encountered medical condition affecting up to 42 million patients, or one in five adults, in the United States alone. OSAHS is multifactorial and often presents with a high relapse rate from inadequate surgical treatment. This panel session will review common treatment methods and various complications that are encountered by surgeons. Controversies in treatment will be discussed by the panel. Treatment algorithms for the surgical management of OSAHS and complications will be presented. This session will be valuable to all surgeons providing care for OSAHS including otolaryngologists, plastic and reconstructive surgeons, pediatric surgeons and oral and maxillofacial surgeons.
