Canada OKs Restore Medical's OSA (obstructive sleep apnoea) technology:

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

Restore Medical has received market approval from Health Canada for its Pillar palatable implant system for treating snoring and mild-to-moderate obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA). The device - already available in 24 countries including the US - will be distributed throughout Canada by Ontario-based Southmedic. The Pillar system is implanted during a single office visit using local anaesthetic. During the procedure, three small polyester implants are placed at the back of the roof of the mouth in order to support and stiffen the tissue, eliminating tissue flutter in snoring or collapse of the soft palate, as in OSA.
