Diagnosis and Treatment of Obstructive Sleep Apnea in Adults

Slide: 23 of 32

Effectiveness of Surgical Interventions

There are different types of upper airway surgeries as well as bariatric surgery that could be done to treat obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). However, studies on surgical interventions are limited, and the strength of evidence is insufficient to evaluate their effectiveness when compared to sham surgery, no treatment, or other OSA interventions like continuous positive airway pressure or mandibular advancement devices. It is important to note that current research evaluates only intermediate outcomes, and thus these findings may not apply to long-term clinical outcomes.
