About oral appliances
Thanks to a wealth of clinical research, oral appliances have gained recognition over the last decade as an effective solution to snoring. These appliances, which are also known as mandibular repositioning devices (MRDs), offer a useful alternative to CPAP treatment in cases of mild to moderate obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA).1,2,3
Clinical results for Narval CC, the ORCADES study
Evaluating the efficacy and compliance of the Narval CC MRD: that is the purpose of the ORCADES study, the largest multicentre trial of patients with obstructive sleep apnoea-hypopnoea syndrome (OSAHS) who are being treated with a custom-made MRD. The ongoing study follows 369 patients over a period of 5 years.1
158 patients – 43% of the study participants – have severe OSAHS (AHI>30).
