Somnus Medical Technology Company Profile

09:28 EDT 22nd September 2017 | BioPortfolio

Somnus Medical Technologies was formed to address several large, underserved opportunities in the management of the upper airway. The company currently markets Somnoplasty® as a treatment for obstructive sleep apnea arising from obstruction at the base of the tongue, habitual snoring from enlarged soft palate and uvula and chronic nasal obstruction caused by the turbinates. Obstructive sleep apnea interrupts breathing during sleep and leads to excessive daytime sleepiness and significant cardiovascular disease. Snoring is a condition which disrupts personal relationships, acts as a warning for more serious disease, and affects some 40 million Americans. Nasal obstruction is a frequent symptom of seasonal allergic rhinitis (hay fever) and perennial (year-round) allergic rhinitis. Clinical trials are underway to evaluate the use of Somnoplasty as a surgical treatment for other obstructive diseases.
