Titel:
Sonographic evaluation of tongue motions during upper airway stimulation for obstructive sleep apnea-a pilot study. 
Abstract:
The objective was to evaluate the feasibility of sonographic evaluation of functional tongue motion as a tool to evaluate postoperative outcomes in human subjects using breathing-synchronized stimulation of the hypoglossal nerve-a novel therapy option for patients with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA).Sixteen patients with OSA (n = 16, age 60.4 ± 10.2, BMI 28.7 ± 2.4, AHI 35.0 ± 11.8) underwent sonographic evaluation of tongue motion after initiation of therapy with the Inspire II Upper Airway Stim...    »
