Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


We present our series of patients with glossoptosis requiring surgical intervention who were treated successfully by glossopexy, and our reasons for preferring this technique over tracheostomy. We used the technique as described by Randall and we consider this procedure a simple operation with a high success rate and low morbidity.
