INTRODUCTION Airway size increases are associated with maxillomandibular advancement (MMA) surgery and improvement or elimination of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). The 3-dimensional morphologic, volumetric, height, cross-sectional surface area, and diameter changes of the upper airway in patients with OSA after MMA, however, are not well understood. METHODS Patients with moderate or severe OSA who underwent MMA surgery were evaluated by preoperative and postoperative cone-beam computed… CONTINUE READING
