Saturday, October 7
1:00pm – 5:00pm I Club D and E

C09 Sleep stages scoring and apnea scoring using computer lab equipment
In this course there are the most common and frequently requested topics to be covered in order to get familiar with the latest and most updated guidelines as per the AASM. The speakers will discuss very interesting, practical and clinical examples most scorers find confusing.

Chair: T. Penzel, Germany Speakers: T. Penzel, Germany; A. Obeidat, United States

Sunday, October 8
12:30am – 4:30pm I Club A and B

C14 Dental sleep medicine
In the management of sleep disordered breathing, dental, and medical sleep medicine societies and members have built a strong collaboration in the last three decades. Early interventions in children and teenagers are avenues that may concur to prevent development of long term risks related to sleep apnea. What we should know and avoid with such interventions remains an open field of clinical research.

Chairs: C. Guilleminault, United States; G. Lavigne, Canada Speakers: G. Lavigne, Canada; P. Pirelli, Italy; B. Vande Vannet, Belgium; A. Yoon, United States; M. Marklund, Sweden; J. Moeller, United States;
N. Huhn, Canada

Surgeon & Dental Symposia
Monday, October 9 – Tuesday, October 10 (listed by day & time)

Monday, October 9
9:00am – 10:30am I Terrace 1

S09 Physiological responses of oromaxillofacial anatomy in obstructive sleep apneics undergoing maxillomandibular advancement (MMA)
In the symposium, Dr. Dennis CY Ho will demonstrate the differences between conventional MMA and MMA with counterclockwise rotation of maxillomandibular complex.

Chair: C.C.-H. Lin, Taiwan Speakers: C.C.-H. Lin, Taiwan; D.C. Ho, Taiwan;V. Pandit, India; R. Sasaki, Japan; E.C. Chan, Hong Kong

Monday, October 9
10:30am – 12:00pm I Terrace 1

S16 Nasal obstruction and its role in sleep disordered breathing
We formally introduce Distraction Osteogenesis Maxillary Expansion (DOME) for adults with OSA, a minimally invasive surgical-orthodontic procedure that addresses maxillary transverse deficiency with simultaneous increase in nasal cavity volume.

Chair: C. Torre, United States Speakers: C. Torre, United States; S. Quo, United States; A. Yoon, United States; S. Liu, United States

Monday, October 9
2:00pm – 3:30pm I Terrace 1

S24 Personalization of mandibular advancement devices: Digital analysis of the movements achieved and mathematical model for the study of the jaw Kinematics
Combining the recent development of techniques to measure the underlying physiology causing an individual’s OSA using routine clinical information, and the study of the personal anatomical characteristics and physiological movements, will enable progress toward individualizing MADs therapy for patients with OSA.

Chair: A. Ferre, Spain Speakers: A. Ferre, Spain; P. Mayoral, Spain; F. Milano, Italy; J. Vila, Spain; A. Bataller, Spain

Monday, October 9
5:30pm – 7:00pm I Terrace 1

S39 Obstructive sleep apnea severity and the role of oral appliances
Oral appliances have become a common alternative for the many patients with OSA, which strengthens the need for continuous updating of knowledge about various aspects of this therapy. is symposium will provide the most recent knowledge about OAs in the treatment of OSA of various severity.

Chair: M. Braem, Belgium Speakers: M. Braem, Belgium; W. McNicholas, Ireland; B. Edwards, Australia; M. Braem, Belgium; P. Cistulli, Australia

Tuesday, October 10, 2017
9:00am – 10:30am I Terrace 1

S48 NON-PAP treatment of Obstructive-sleep-apnea in late teen-agers and early adulthood: What can be done, orthodontia and surgery?

Late teen-agers and young adults are non-compliant with nasal CPAP, except for subjects with enlarged adenotonsils or important septum deviation, soft tissue surgery has not been a successful long-term treatment approach. What can be offered to this age-group of patients?

Chair: C. Guilleminault, United States; P. Pirelli, Italy Speakers: C. Guilleminault, United States; M. Marklund, Sweden; B. Vande Vannet, Belgium; T. Loncle, France; S. Liu, United States; P. Pirelli, Italy

Tuesday, October 10, 2017
10:30am – 12:00pm I Terrace 1

S55 OSA treatment in adult [men and women] non compliant with nasal PAP, indication and potential treatment: surgical approaches and nerve implantation
Surgical implantation of hypoglossal nerve is very much considered in different places and fairly short term results are available; but transcutaneous stimulation, a less invasive technique that has been rule-out before is again a potential option.

Chairs: C.C.-H. Lin, Taiwan; S.-W. Kim, Republic of Korea Speakers: C.C.-H. Lin, Taiwan; S.S. Hsu, Taiwan; J. Cifuentes, Chile; J. Maurer, Germany; M. Boon, United States; J. Steier, United Kingdom; S.-W. Kim, Republic of Korea

Tuesday, October 10, 2017
2:00pm – 3:30pm I Terrace 1

S63 OSA, Upper-airway surgery and MAD: techniques to select location, surgical techniques to be used, personalization of mandibular-advancement-device
Upper-airway surgery and usage of mandibular advancement devices are approaches very much considered in treatment of OSA.

Chairs: N. Montesdeoca, Spain; C.C.-H. Lin, Taiwan Speakers: N. Montesdeoca, Spain; S.-W. Kim, Republic of Korea; P.V. Krishnan, India; P. Baptista, Spain; J. Vila, Spain; C.C.-H. Lin, Taiwan
