Posters and Presentations
- A Noninferiority Analysis of 3- versus 2- Incision Techniques for HNS Implantation. (David T. Kent, MD et al.)
- Safety and efficacy profile for 2-incision technique is noninferior to 3-incision technique
- Operative time is significantly decreased with the 2-incision technique to 87 minutes
- Real-World Outcomes from Over 3 Million Nights of Upper Airway Stimulation Therapy for CPAP Intolerant Obstructive Sleep Apnea. (Jordan S. Weiner, MD et al.)

- Analysis demonstrated no difference in UAS outcomes (e.g. AHI, ESS, objective usage, and usage rates) in Hispanic patients versus non-Hispanic patients
- The number of Hispanic participants in the ADHERE registry is just 2.1% of the overall participants, which is significantly lower than their proportion in the general U.S. population (18.7%)
- This analysis highlights the need to understand barriers to care in receiving surgical UAS for patients of differing socioeconomic, ethnic, and educational backgrounds
