A new Solution for Sleep Apnea

The AIRLIFT® Hyoid Suspension

Procedure Overview:

The AIRLIFT Hyoid Suspension procedure is for patients with obstructive sleep apnea. The procedure involves advancing the hyoid bone and suspending it with two small implants and suture. Due to the muscle attachments on the hyoid bone, this causes the narrow or blocked airway to open and become more stable during sleep. Patients who get the AIRLIFT Hyoid Suspension procedure as part of a multilevel treatment plan see a 70% improvement in sleep apnea obstructions.

Why Treat Your Sleep Apnea

Obstructive sleep apnea greatly increases your risk of death. Proper treatment can bring this risk back to normal 

OSA and the Airway

Airway collapse from the tongue base (TB) and the lateral walls (LW) caused by lax airway muscles used to be difficult to treat without major surgery.  

Airway expanded and stabilized with
hyoid bone advancement

The Solution

Repositioning the hyoid bone (HB) expands and stabilizes the airway behind the tongue base.
