Ultrasound Guidance for Implantation of Hypoglossal Nerve Stimulator in a Breast Implant Patient

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The hypoglossal nerve stimulator (HGNS) is an effective treatment for obstructive sleep apnea in qualified patients. The implantation is typically performed without direct visualization or image guidance. A surgical approach utilizing ultrasound guidance has proved useful for patients with silicone breast implants, which may be at risk of rupture during insertion of the device. This surgical modification expands the population that can benefit from HGNS to now include patients with breast implants. Laryngoscope, 2651–2653, 2018.
