Repose™ Hyoid Suspension

Tongue suspension is a procedure that is useful in the treatment of difficult cases with obstructive sleep apnea. If patients have severe sleep apnea and basic tongue enlargement and collapse the traditional surgical approaches have a 10% or less chance of success. The addition of the tongue suspension procedure has greatly improved these results. The tongue suspension procedure involves the placement of a very tiny screw in the posterior portion of the mandible of the jaw bone and the placement of a soft suture through the substance of the tongue. This is meant to prevent collapse of the tongue and adds only moderately to the pain and discomfort of the traditional procedures.
