The aim of this prospective study is to evaluate the results of polidocanol sclerotherapy of
pharynx for OSAS & SS,to reduce pharyngeal compliance.
Official title: Preliminary Study on Submucous Sclerosis of Pharynges With 1% Polidocanol to Treat Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) & Snoring Subjects (SS)
Study design: Allocation: Non-Randomized, Endpoint Classification: Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Treatment
Primary outcome: apnea-hypopnea index (AHI)is on polysomnography(PSG),to compare AHIanterior and posterior treatment.
Secondary outcome: Arterial oxygen saturation (SaO2) and body mass index (BMI)will be measured on polysomnography
Polidocanol submucous sclerosis in the part of pharynges with 1% polidocanol injection. The
injection should be in the retropharyngeal submucosa and lateral pharyngeal bands and
lateral pharyngeal submucosa and in front submucosa of soft palate. The injection is
multi-point,and each point injection is 0. 3~0. 5ml;the total quantity/each time is not more
than 5ml. Every patient have to be treated about 1~2 time.
Minimum age: 18 Years.
Maximum age: 65 Years.
