BACKGROUND: Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) affects two third of morbidly obese individuals undergoing bariatric surgery. Perioperative usage of continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) is advised for moderately and severe OSA to avoid respiratory failure and cardiac events. CPAP increases the air pressure in the upper airway, but also may elevate the air pressure in the esophagus and stomach. Concern exists that this predisposes to mechanical stress resulting in suture or staple line disruption (further referred to as suture line disruption)...

Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) has a strong association with cardiovascular and metabolic abnormalities, although the mechanism driving this association is not well established. NOV/CCN3, a multifunctional extracellular matrix protein, may play a mechanistic and/or prognostic role in these associations. We hypothesized that patients with OSA, which primarily affects obese individuals, will have increased levels of NOV, and that NOV can serve as a biomarker in patients to predict OSA as well as metabolic and cardiac risk...

Introduction Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is characterized by partial or complete recurrent upper airway obstruction during sleep. OSA brings many adverse consequences, such as hypertension, obesity, diabetes mellitus, cardiac and encephalic alterations, behavioral, among others, resulting in a significant source of public health care by generating a high financial and social impact. The importance of this assessment proves to be useful, because the incidence of patients with comorbidities associated with AOS has been increasing consistently and presents significant influence in natural disease history...

BACKGROUND AND AIM OF THE STUDY: It was hypothesized that sleep disorders might be present due to functional heart failure in patients with mitral stenosis (MS), and might be accompanied by obstructive-type sleep disorders. To examine this hypothesis, non-smoker and non-obese patients with rheumatic MS and without concomitant diseases were investigated for sleep disorders. METHODS: Patients admitted to the cardiology outpatient clinic at the authors' institution for rheumatic MS during a one-year period were included in the study...

BACKGROUND: Adenotonsillectomy (T&A) is a common surgery performed for obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) in children. Obese children are at increased risk for OSA, but are also at increased risk for cardiovascular changes that might heighten their risk of undergoing a general anesthetic. There is currently no standard of care recommendation for cardiac workup prior to T&A. PURPOSE: To ascertain whether a preoperative cardiac workup is predictive of postoperative complications in obese children undergoing T&A for OSA...

Prolonged P-wave duration, indicating atrial conduction delay, is a marker of left atrial abnormality and is reported as a potent precursor of atrial fibrillation (AF). Several studies have shown that obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is associated with AF. We evaluated the relationship between OSA and prolonged P-wave duration. Consecutive subjects who underwent overnight polysomnography and showed a normal sinus rhythm, had no history of AF or ischemic heart disease, and showed no evidence of heart failure were enrolled...

A higher prevalence of coronary heart disease, cardiac and overall mortality is associated with obesity. The development of obesity appears in different adaptations in the morphology of cardiac structure and function. Obesity causes eccentric hypertrophy and changes in diastolic function of left ventricle. A systolic on diastolic heart dysfunction results from the breakdown of compensatory pace to raised wall stress and dilatation of chambers. Obesity does not possess primary cause and effect relationship with cardiovascular disease, such as LDL cholesterol...

Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) syndrome is a common but often unrecognized disorder caused by pharyngeal collapse during sleep and characterized by frequent awakenings, disrupted sleep and consequent excessive daytime sleepiness. With the increasing epidemic of obesity, the most important risk factor for OSA, prevalence of the disease will increase over the coming years thus representing an important public-health problem. In fact, it is now recognized that there is an association between OSA and hypertension, metabolic syndrome, diabetes, heart failure, coronary artery disease, arrhythmias, stroke, pulmonary hypertension, neurocognitive and mood disorders...

A major concern with sleep-disordered breathing conditions, which include obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), central apnea, and congenital central hypoventilation syndrome (CCHS), is the high incidence of accompanying autonomic dysfunction and metabolic disorders. Patients with OSA show exaggerated sympathetic tone, leading to hypertension, cardiac arrhythmia, profuse sweating, impaired cerebral perfusion, and stroke. In addition, OSA appears in 86% of obese Type II diabetic patients, suggesting common deleterious processes...

BACKGROUND: Due to significant medical improvements, persons with Down syndrome now live well into adulthood. Consequently, primary care for adults with Down syndrome needs to incorporate routine care with screening for condition-specific comorbidities. This study seeks to evaluate the adherence of primary care physicians to age- and condition-specific preventive care in a cohort of adults with Down syndrome. METHODS: In this retrospective observational cohort study, preventive screening was evaluated in patients with Down syndrome aged 18-45 years who received primary care in an academic medical centre from 2000 to 2008...
