Objective   To discuss the method and therapeutic effects of modified hyoid suspension surgery for obstructive sleep apnea-hypopnea syndrome. Methods   Modified hyoid suspension was performed in 68 OSAHS patients in one or consecutive stages. All the patients underwent polysomnography(PSG) and multislice CT (MSCT) before and six months after the operation. Results   In all the cases, PSG indexes showed significant improvement after the operation. According to the assessment guidelines, the efficiency is 100% six months after. The anteroposterior dimensions of retroglossal were decreased and transverse dimensions were increased after the surgery. The shape of airway tended to be normal. Conclusion   Modified hyoid suspension is effective for OSAHS patients with oropharyngeal obstruction.
