The lateral pharyngoplasty
Designed by Dr Cahali of Sao Paolo, is used in patients with an AHI greater than 30 in the presence of lateral collapse. In this technique, "reposition" the tissues responsible for pharyngeal collapse. It presents an easy to carry and postoperative that there is no removal of tissue such as uvulopalatopharyngoplasty. The patient is incorporated into their normal lives within 7 days. We decided to learn it and we stay with Dr Cahali in Sao Paulo practicing and knowing how to do it. We perform it successfully from December 2010 with satisfactory results.We were the first Spanish surgeon in performing this surgery in Spain.
