Abstract

Author(s): Ahmed Abdelfattah Elsobki

Lateral pharyngeal wall collapse and splinting possibilities is still an incompletely answered question in sleep surgery. Sixty three percent of our revision cases in the last six years was due to fa ilure to properly splint the collapsing lateral pharyngeal walls specially at the hypopharyngeal level. To improve our outcome we thought about level specific staging system of the lateral pharyngeal walls in OSA patients Key words: Pharyngeal, hypopharyngeal, Nosocomial etc.
