  • This device is indicated for the reduction of the tongue base component in Sleep-disordered Breathing (OSA).
  • Typical treatment zone is 2.5 – 3.0 cm by 2.5 – 3.0 cm in the midline and circumscribes the circumvallate papilla. Avoid being too lateral.

  • Saline injection at the site of lesion may improve tissue volume reduction.
