Hypertension was more frequently seen in patients with OSAS than in patients without OSAS and hypertension frequency increased in parallel to the severity of OSAS. The goal of uvulopalatopharyngoplasty (UPPP) in the treatment of obstructive sleep apnea syndrome is to reduce obstruction by eliminating redundant tissue in three areas
