Supraglottoplasty for Occult Laryngomalacia to Improve Obstructive Sleep Apnea Syndrome

Supraglottoplasty for occult laryngomalacia resulted in statistically significant reduction in the apnea-hypopnea index. Overall, 91% of children had an improvement in AHI, and 64% had only mild or no residual OSAS after supraglottoplasty. Supraglottoplasty is an effective technique for the treatment of OSAS associated with occult laryngomalacia.
