Abstract

A transoral robotic version of Chabolle's tongue base reduction with hyoid epiglottoplasty for obstructive sleep apnea syndrome is described. The main tongue base and supraglottic surgical steps are pointed out, as well as the indications and potential complications. The advantages and limits of this minimally invasive approach are discussed.
