Persistent obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is demonstrated in 40% of children after adenotonsillectomy. We previously evaluated the basis of management decisions in children with OSA without tonsillar hypertrophy and found that 61% of decisions were non–evidence based. The aim of this study was to identify gaps in evidence for the management of children with OSA without tonsillar hypertrophy.
