The aim of this study was to introduce a new adjustable device in the treatment of obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS). The new appliance has a different way to regulate and move the mandible through the presence of two occlusal lifts, that can leave an open posterior space, and the complex system formed by the peduncle and the steel plate that can easily move forward the mandible. This system guarantees a posterior space for the tongue but mostly for the passage of air. The principal aim of Bruma MAD is to contrast the pharyngeal collapsing and to prevent hypopnea or apnea. Further clinical studies are needed to confirm and to evaluate the predictability of this new device.

Abstract

The aim of this study was to introduce a new adjustable device in the treatment of obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS). The new appliance has a different way to regulate and move the mandible through the presence of two occlusal lifts, that can leave an open posterior space, and the complex system formed by the peduncle and the steel plate that can easily move forward the mandible. This system guarantees a posterior space for the tongue but mostly for the passage of air. The principal aim of Bruma MAD is to contrast the pharyngeal collapsing and to prevent hypopnea or apnea. Further clinical studies are needed to confirm and to evaluate the predictability of this new device.
