OBJECTIVE The study goal was to determine the effectiveness of (1) multilevel temperature-controlled radiofrequency tissue ablation (TCRFTA) or (2) continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) for the treatment of mild to moderate obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS). STUDY DESIGN AND METHODS We conducted a randomized, placebo-controlled, 2-site trial, comparing TCRFTA (n = 30) and CPAP (n = 30) with sham-placebo (n = 30) using intention-to-treat analysis. RESULTS Compared with… CONTINUE READING
