What is Tongue Base Reduction?

When the tongue base is enlarged, it may cause obstructive sleep apnea by collapsing into the air passage. This surgical method allows cutting a portion of tissue without affecting the functions of the tongue.

Treatment

Diagnosis

The ENT specialist usually makes an evaluation based on signs and symptoms including sleep history. Even physical examination of throat, mouth, and nose for extra tissues and tests such as polysomnography or home sleep apnea testing may be prescribed by the doctor.

Surgery

In most cases, a specialist tries to cure the symptoms of the sleeping disorder by using antibiotics or other medical prescriptions. Tongue base reduction is a surgical method that is only opted when other measures fail to deliver expected results. It is done under general anesthesia. Tongue base reduction with temperature-controlled radiofrequency tissue ablation is a relatively safe and simple procedure.
