Combination CPAP and bilateral hypoglossal nerve stimulation for obstructive sleep apnea in Treacher Collins syndrome: first case report
Journal of clinical sleep medicine : JCSM : official publication of the American Academy of Sleep Medicine
We report the first case of bilateral hypoglossal nerve stimulator implantation in a patient with Treacher Collins syndrome and very severe obstructive sleep apnea, who was initially intolerant of continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) treatment. Novel bilateral hypoglossal nerve stimulation in combination with CPAP allowed near obliteration of snoring, improved sleep quality, and ability to maintain the CPAP mask in position in the setting of craniofacial changes associated with this condition.
