Available data suggest a potential association between HNC surgery and OSA. Evidence of associations between tumor stage, RT to the head and neck, and OSA is limited. The use of PAP therapy to treat OSA in patients with HNC is feasible, but barriers to treatment could hamper OSA care. Given the literature gap demonstrated through this systematic review, further research is warranted to disentangle the relationship between HNC and OSA.
