Preview

A non-surgical technique for the treatment of upper airway obstruction in oculoauriculovertebral dysplasia using an intra-oral orthopaedic appliance is described, which resulted in respiratory and feeding problems being solved without side-effects. This noninvasive management might also be of major benefit in the treatment of airway obstruction associated with Pierre Robin sequence, mandibular micrognathia in other craniofacial anomalies, or obstructive sleep apnoea.
