Palatal Implant Procedure Proven Effective in Eliminating Snoring

Palatal implants are designed for the treatment of mild to moderate obstructive sleep apnea/hypopnea syndrome (OSAHS) and socially disruptive snoring.// The effectiveness of palatal implants for treatment of mild to moderate OSA and snoring has been demonstrated in a number of clinical studies. Primarily, studies have shown significant objective evidence of improvement in apnea hypopnea index (AHI) as measured by polysomnography data, with additional evidence of improvement in snoring intensity and daytime sleepiness.

Level 1 studies consist of randomized, placebo-controlled trials, which are considered to provide the strongest level of evidence. Without level 1 evidence however, results from any treatment option remain subject to speculation about potential placebo effect, selection bias, and other factors not directly a result of the treatment. Improvements in snoring intensity and daytime sleepiness may possibly be the result of placebo effects, secondary to the local anesthetic, or the result of scarring caused by the palatal implant delivery tool. Although these are unlikely reasons, only a properly designed study can provide objective, unbiased evidence of the true benefits of palatal implants.

The authors of the study, 'Palatal Implants for the Treatment of Obstructive Sleep Apnea/Hypopnea Syndrome and Snoring: A Double-Blind, Placebo-Controlled Study' designed the study to provide such evidence. In the study, the researchers describe the objective and subjective outcomes of the palatal implant patients and compare them to the control group who received an identical surgical treatment procedure without palatal implants. Study author Michael Friedman MD and colleagues will present the findings at the 110th Annual Meeting & OTO EXPO of the American Academy of Otolaryngology—Head and Neck Surgery Foundation, being held September 17-20, 2006, at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre, Toronto, Canada.
