Laser Surgery for Snoring and Sleep Apnea
One Step Laser Surgery for Snoring
By: Otolaryngology Associates Dr. R. I. Dickson and Dr. D. R. Mintz Snoring, a problem which afflicts millions of people and their partners, occurs when there is obstruction of the free flow of air through the passages of the back of the mouth and nose. This is most often caused by excessive tissue in the uvula and soft palate. Since snoring can be a sign of a more serious condition such as sleep apnea, patients should be fully evaluated by a qualified physician prior to any treatment. Until now the only surgical alternative to Laser Assisted Uvulopalatoplasty (LAUP) was the more extensive and painful procedure (Uvulopalatopharyngoplasty - UPPP) performed under general anaesthetic in the operating room. The hospital stay could be one to three days, with a recuperative period of at least one or two weeks. Some patients have been reluctant to undergo UPPP solely to treat snoring because it involves significant pain and it is their partner and not them who suffers. Standard LAUP treatment done in most centers requires three to five treatments to slowly shrink the floppy palate. No tissue specimen is actually removed; the palate is slowly scarred and tightened. Our one step method involves removal of the same amount of tissue as with standard UPPP. The amount of the palate left for normal function is determined by a palatal dimple easily seen in every patient. This dimple corresponds to the lower level of the palatal muscle elevators which are needed for complete closure on swallowing. Preserving these muscles prevents nasal speech or liquid back flow. Our procedure is done in one session in over 95% of cases. We can remove more tissue with no increased pain because we also use a cold laser (not available in the US) and inject cortisone with local anaesthetic.

  • Snoring
Snoring is an age-old problem with social consequences, including marital discord , separate bedrooms, and even separation and divorce . Snoring occurs due to vibration of the tissue in the throat, usually while the patient is breathing through the mouth. A vibrating uvula Although in itself snoring is not necessarily dangerous, it may be a symptom of sleep apnea or other sleep disorders condition s which can be very dangerous. Until recently , the treatment for snoring has included such techniques as behavioral modification, weight loss, dental devices, nasal strips, drugs, and major (painful) surgery. But now, the treatment for snoring and many cases of sleep apnea may be a simple office procedure.
  • Sleep Apnea
    • Sleep apnea is usually obstructive; that is, the breathing passage is blocked between the nose and the voice box. If sleep apnea is severe enough, the oxygen in the bloodstream which is reaching the brain and other vital organs may fall to dangerous levels. The site(s) - or point(s) - of obstruction must be diagnosed before treatment can begin.

Overview of Obstructive Sleep Apnea
Approximately 30 million Americans are victims of a sleep disorder called obstructive sleep apnea . Many millions more are predisposed and have a high risk of developing the illness. If you are an adult male, the odds are about 50/50 that your breathing is not normal when you are sleeping. It is imperative that anyone who might have this problem or is predisposed, or knows someone they care about who has the problem, should have the clearest possible understanding about it.
We have dedicated this section of the web site to a crystal clear and detailed description of all aspects of obstructive sleep apnea. The section begins with an overview which will introduce the reader to this important sleep disorder. During the next several weeks we will be providing you with a more in-depth understanding of obstructive sleep apnea. Please check back to this section to view upcoming segments.

Sleep apnea is a disorder that commonly afflicts more than 12 million people in the United States. It takes its name from the Greek word apnea, which means "without breath." People with sleep apnea literally stop breathing repeatedly during their sleep, often for a minute or longer and as many as hundreds of times during a single night. Sleep apnea can be caused by either complete obstruction of the airway (obstructive apnea) or partial obstruction (obstructive hypopnea hypopnea is slow, shallow breathing), both of which can wake one up. There are three types of sleep apnea — obstructive, central, and mixed. Of these, obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is the most common. OSA occurs in approximately 2 percent of women and 4 percent of men over the age of 35. Causes The exact cause of OSA remains unclear. The site of obstruction in most patients is the soft palate, extending to the region at the base of the tongue. There are no rigid structures, such as cartilage or bone, in this area to hold the airway open. During the day, muscles in the region keep the passage wide open. But as a person with OSA falls asleep, these muscles relax to a point where the airway collapses and becomes obstructed. When the airway closes, breathing stops, and the sleeper awakens to open the airway. The arousal from sleep usually lasts only a few seconds, but brief arousals disrupt continuous sleep and prevent the person from reaching the deep stages of slumber, such as rapid eye movement (REM) sleep, which the body needs in order to rest and replenish its strength. Once normal breathing is restored, the person falls asleep only to repeat the cycle throughout the night.
