Case 14 introduces a 54-year-old man with history of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) and difficulty breathing through the nose who had tried continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) therapy unsuccessfully. His medical history indicated a series of surgeries, including tonsillectomy in childhood and rhinoplasty, septoplasty with bilateral turbinate reduction, and open revision of septorhinoplasty for repair of nasal vestibular stenosis as an adult. He reported nonrestorative sleep and excessive daytime sleepiness (EDS).
