Paper Abstract

A total of 420 cases of OSAS patients underwent laser- assisted uvlopalatoplasty (LAUP) with CO2 and Ho:YAG laser, the follow-up period range 1-12 months in 360 cases. According to our overall response rate, total improvements in 60 percent of patients, significant improvement in 100 percent of patients. Except minor bleeding, no serious complications were observed, so LAUP should be considered as an alternative to UPPP.
