Eagle’s Syndrome, also known as Styloid Syndrome, is defined by the presence of an elongated, misshapen, or calcified stylohyoid ligament. It is characterized by pain localized to either side of the throat, odynophagia, and referred otalgia. Transoral removal of the stylohyoid ligament consists of transecting the stylohyoid ligament to release tension and result in improvement of pain.

Dynamic internal nasal valve collapse is common form of nasal valve collapse that can be difficult to address surgically. There have been many surgical techniques described to stabilize and improve the function of the internal nasal valve. Our presented technique is a simple and reproducible surgical technique that has proved reliable in treatment of dynamic internal nasal valve collapse. This video clearly describes and demonstrates our internal nasal valve stabilization technique.
The retropalatal airway is a common site of collapse in obstructive sleep apnea. Transpalatal advancement pharyngoplasty aims to address this site of upper airway collapse by advancing the soft palate anteriorly, increasing the cross-sectional area of the airway and decreasing pharyngeal collapsibility.
