Multilevel surgery has been established as the mainstay of treatment for the surgical management of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). Combined with uvulopalatopharyngoplasty, tongue-base surgeries, including the genioglossus advancement (GA), sliding genioplasty, and hyoid myotomy and suspension, have been developed to target hypopharyngeal obstruction. Total airway surgery consisting of maxillomandibular advancement (MMA) with/without GA has shown significant success. Skeletal procedures for OSA with or without a palatal procedure is a proven technique for relieving airway obstruction during sleep...

Obstructive sleep apnea represents a large burden of disease to the general population and may compromise patient quality of life; workplace and automotive safety; and metabolic, cardiovascular, and neurocognitive health. The disease is characterized by repetitive cycles of upper airway collapse resulting from a lack of pharyngeal airway structural support and loss of muscle tone among upper airway dilators. Polysomnography serves as the gold standard for diagnosis of obstructive sleep apnea and the apnea-hypopnea index is the most commonly used metric for quantifying disease severity...

Maxillomandibular advancement (MMA) surgery, which is the most effective treatment modality for patients with moderate-to-severe obstructive sleep apnea with apparent skeletal discrepancies, has been modified in conjunction with segmental osteotomies, counterclockwise rotation of maxillomandibular complex, and other adjunctive procedures. However, any single type of MMA could not treat or cure all the patients with obstructive sleep apnea showing different dentofacial and pharyngeal patterns. We aimed to suggest critical decision factors for the selective application of MMA subtypes, categorized as straight MMA with genioplasty, rotational MMA, segmental MMA, and segmental-rotational MMA, in the surgical treatment objective process: anteroposterior position of maxilla, upper lip projection, overjet, lower incisor inclination as sagittal factors, and upper incisor exposure and occlusal plane angle as vertical factors...

Orthognathic surgery has an influence on the overlying soft tissues of the translated bony maxillomandibular complex. Improvements in both function and facial appearance are the goals of surgery. However, unwanted changes to the soft tissues, especially in the nose region, frequently occur. The most common secondary change in the nasolabial region is widening of the alar base. Various surgical techniques have been developed to minimize this effect. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the changes in the nasal region due to orthognathic surgery, especially the alar width and nasal volume, using combined cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) and three-dimensional (3D) stereophotogrammetry datasets...

PURPOSE: Mandibular advancement splints (MAS) are an effective treatment for obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA). However, MAS are not equally efficacious across all patients and the reasons are not well understood. Craniofacial and upper airway structure individually influence MAS response. We aimed to assess anatomical balance, defined as the ratio of upper airway soft tissue (ST) volume to maxillomandibular enclosure volume, between MAS treatment responders and non-responders. METHODS: OSA patients (apnoea-hypopnea index (AHI) >10 h(-1)) were recruited for MAS treatment...
