    a couple options which may be effective for OSA.

    Sclerotherapy is the injection of a drug into the tissues of the pharynx which cause scarring and tightening of the tissues leading to an increased diameter in the upper airway and thus reducing apnea.

    Ablation is kind of like using a laser to achieve the same goal as above.

    Neither of these are FDA approved for OSA, ,but studies are being conducted.
