Obstructive Sleep Apnea Hypopnea Syndrome (OSAHS) is a disease with increasing prevalence. The application of surgery to the treatment on OSAHS is a growing field and this course was created to show-case the up-to-date surgical procedures available to treat those who cannot tolerate non-surgical treatment options. With a strong practical focus, the course will include anatomical, clinical and surgically oriented lectures. Ten hours of cadaver dissection is available with hands-on faculty instruction. Faculty led clinical case discussions will consolidate the learning objectives. The face-to-face relationship between the faculty and participants makes this course an important starting point for all specialists who want to explore sleep-disordered breathing surgery
