OBJECTIVE This study investigated the differences in airway morphology between control patients and those with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) treated with maxillomandibular advancement (MMA) to gain better insight into the beneficial effects of MMA on airway morphology and OSA severity. STUDY DESIGN This retrospective case-control study included preoperative radiographic data gathered for all patients; postoperative radiographic data were gathered for the OSA group.
