The Relation of Polysomnographic Parameters to Carotid and Brachial Artery Intima-media Thickness in Patients with Severe Obstructive Sleep Apnea Syndrome

In the present report we investigated whether the effect of intermittent and continuous hypoxia on carotid and brachial artery intima-media thicknesses (IMTs) is similar. We showed that both intermittent and continuous hypoxia result in remarkable alterations in carotid-IMT and brachial-IMT.


Objective: To evaluate carotid (C) and brachial (BA) artery intima-media thickness (IMT) in patients with severe obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS) along with factors predicting CIMT and BA-IMT increase.
