  1. A Noninferiority Analysis of 3- vs 2-Incision Techniques for Hypoglossal Nerve Stimulator Implantation. Kent DT, Chio EG, Weiner JS, Heiser C, Suurna MV, Weidenbecher M. Otolaryngol Head Neck Surg. 2021 Nov 30. Epub ahead of print. PMID: 34846979.
    This article co-authored with 5 academic surgeons, assessed the outcomes of hypoglossal nerve stimulation therapy (Inspire procedure) when the surgery is performed through 2 incisions rather than the original 3 incisions. We demonstrated equal outcomes with reduced operative times and higher surgeon satisfaction.
  2. Case Report: Lateral Chest Placement of IPG for Hypoglossal Nerve Stimulator Implantation. Weiner JS. Laryngoscope, 00:1–3, 2020
    This article describes an innovative surgery to place the Inspire device in a woman with a history of breast cancer and breast reconstruction. This new surgical technique hides the incision for the nerve stimulator.
  3. Hypoglossal Nerve Stimulator Implantation via a Two-Incision Technique. Kent DT, Weiner JS, Chio EG, Weidenbecher M. Operative Techniques in Otolaryngology - Head and Neck Surgery. 31(3) September 2020, pages e35-e42.
    This article, co-authored with 3 academic surgeons, describes a new way of performing the Inspire procedure using just two incisions rather than the standard 3. At this time only a handful of surgeons worldwide are able to perform this technique. This innovation is predicted to change how surgery is done in the U.S. and elsewhere.

  7. Supine Pharyngeal Width Is Associated With Complete Concentric Palatal Collapse During Drug-Induced Sleep Endoscopy and Hypoglossal Nerve Stimulator Outcomes. | Jordan S. Weiner,, Christopher C. Munhall, B.S., and David T. Kent, M.D. | December 29, 2022 | SAGE journals/Ear, Nose & Throat Journal |
    The article describes Dr. Weiner's novel measurement method to assess the internal diameter of the throat. His research suggests that this measurement may help predict which patients will have complete concentric collapse of the throat on sleep endoscopy, which is a contraindication to Inspire sleep apnea therapy.

Current: A study designed to improve the process for patients being evaluated for Inspire implantation. This study will determine if a simple measurement from the back of the patient's throat can predict good surgical candidates and replace the need for an exploratory endoscopy under sedation with additional time and cost savings.
