Jesus Algaba: Snoring Treatment with NightLase

We would like to present the preliminary results of treatment in 38 patients, simple snoring or with SAHOS. With regard to the selection of patients, it is very important to diagnose the cause of snoring or SAHOS and discard those patients whose cause is not in the soft palate. Also note that the results should be considered in the short, medium and long term, as to date, virtually all surgical techniques have demonstrated loss of efficacy over time.

What is the advantage of the treatment of snoring and sleep apnea with Erbium YAG laser? The Erbium laser has the advantage of being a non-invasive treatment, not aggressive and is done on an outpatient basis in the office.

In this presentation we will present the results, which in principle are encouraging, both for snoring and sleep apnea. We have succeeded in some patients using CPAP to discontinue its use. And in simple snorers, the snoring stopped completely or the intensity of snoring became so soft that it did not disturb the partner. We think it is too early to speak of definitive results, but what is certain is that this is a simple procedure to perform and safe for the patient.
