Author information

Sleep Disorders Center, Stanford University School of Medicine, CA.


Forty patients with documented obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS) were evaluated following maxillary and mandibular osteotomies (MMO). All patients were evaluated before and after surgery by a physical examination, fiberoptic pharyngoscopy, cephalometric analysis, and polysomnography. Ninety-seven percent of the patients responded to the surgical treatment, based on the polysomnogram. The present indications for MMO are severe OSAS, morbid obesity, and severe mandibular deficiency.
