The Pillar implant is one of the surgical options for snoring and obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). It is designed to be inserted into the soft palate to reduce vibration and collapsibility. The efficacy of the Pillar implant has been evaluated in various studies. However, only one study conducted a meta‐analysis of the findings, and was based on only three studies. We tried to get a more definite conclusion on the efficacy of the Pillar implant.
