The study deals with different conditions like obstructive sleep apnea, airway obstruction and the surgical procedures like transoral robotic surgery, tracheoplasty respectively used for their treatment. Imaging techniques such as computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) aid in sensitive and accurate assessment of various conditions of otolaryngology which is required in the selection of appropriate surgical treatment method.
