Sleep

Olympus ENT provides safe and gentle, minimally invasive treatment options for Sleep Disordered Breathing and Obstructive Sleep Apnea procedures that can be performed in the OR or the Office.


  • Turbinate Reduction

    Hypertrophy of the anterior tip of the inferior turbinate, found in the nasal valve region, can cause exponential increases in airway resistance. More commonly, the problem is mucosal hypertrophy causing impingement on the nasal valve, increased nasal resistance, and nasal obstruction.

    Olympus offers you proprietary technology solutions for the reduction of inferior turbinate hypertrophy.

     
  • Palatoplasty

    Celon and Somnoplasty technologies allow surgeons to stiffen the palate in an outpatient or office setting, performed with the patient under local anesthetic.

     
  • BOT Reduction

    Somnoplasty technology is performed by submucosally delivering low-power electrical energy with a needle electrode. This procedure has been proposed to improve airway latency with less morbidity than that of traditional surgical approaches to obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). This procedure can be performed in the clinic or office with local anesthesia. Multiple treatments may accomplish the desired result.

     
  • UPPP

    UPPP is the most common procedure for the treatment of obstructive sleep apnea OSA syndrome. This procedure consists of a combination of treatments to open the airway including: tonsillectomy, reorientation of the anterior and posterior tonsillar pillars, excision of the uvula and posterior rim of the soft palate and enlarged tongue base. Olympus has proprietary technologies that allow surgeons to perform any combination of these treatments.

     
  • Sleep Endoscopy

    Sleep endoscopy, also known as sleep nasoendoscopy (SNE) or drug-induced sleep endoscopy (DISE), is a powerful tool for studying the dynamic airway in a sleeping patient with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). Using the knowledge gained from sleep endoscopy, the surgeon can tailor the operative procedure to the patient's specific condition.

    Due to the difficulty in establishing the site of obstruction in the conscious patient who carries a diagnosis of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), the diagnosis and treatment of OSA is a complex and multidimensional issue. The passing of a fiberoptic endoscope through a sleeping patient's nasal cavity to assess pharyngeal structures for evidence of obstruction may induce the preexisting snoring in a high percentage of patients.
