OBJECTIVES   The study aims to perform static and dynamic quantitative assessment of the anatomical changes of the upper airway before and after modified uvulopalatal flap and lateral pharyngoplasty and comparison of the improvement in airway dimensions, collapsibility and extent of normalisation to that of control patients. DESIGN   Prospective case-controlled study. SETTING   Computer-assisted quantitative measurement is used to compare upper airway parameters before and after modified… CONTINUE READING
