Course Overview

Obstructive Sleep Apnea Hypopnea Syndrome (OSAHS) is a disease with increasing prevalence. The application of surgery to the treatment for 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. Utilizing a strong practical focus, the course will include anatomical, clinical and surgical oriented lectures, anatomical dissection with hands-on supervision and clinical case discussions to consolidate 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 breathing disorder surgery. 

 

Objectives:

  • State how to evaluate the upper airway from an obstructive sleep apnea perspective. 
  • Describe the heterogeneous nature of anatomical obstruction in obstructive sleep apnea. 
  • Explain how to identify the site of obstruction and determine if multi-level surgery is required. 
  • Demonstrate the surgical steps involved in common surgical interventions for obstructive sleep apnea. 
  • Describe and examine the surgical steps involved in common surgical interventions for obstructive sleep apnea. 
  • Identify perioperative morbidity and how to manage this in the surgical treatment of OSA. 
  • Discuss the role of surgery in pediatric OSA.
