An Investigation of Serum Magnesium and Red Blood Cell Distribution Width Values in Patients with Obstructive Sleep Apnea Syndrome

DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2017.153
Synopsis: 
The study investigated the serum levels of magnesium and red blood cell distribution width (RDW) values and their relationship with polysomnographic parameters in patients with OSAS. Serum RDW values were significantly elevated and magnesium levels were significantly decreased in OSAS. Also, RDW was positively and magnesium was negatively correlated with polysomnographic parameters. To our knowledge, this was the first study investigating the association between RDW and Mg levels in the same patient population.

ABSTRACT

Objective: Obstructive Sleep Apnea Syndrome (OSAS) leads to complications in several systems. The purpose of this study was to examine serum magnesium and red cell distribution width (RDW) values in OSAS, a chronic inflammation, and thus to reveal the relations between these two parameters and with other sleep parameters.

Hearing Evaluation in Children with Type 1 Diabetes Mellitus

DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2017.150
Synopsis: 
The study investigated the hearing functions of children with Type 1 Diabetes Mellitus. Tympanogram, pure tone audiogram, and transient evoked otoacoustic emission tests were performed to all subjects. According to the PTA results, mean hearing threshold values were found significantly higher in children with Type 1 diabetes compared to the control group. We recommend that Type 1 diabetic children should be kept under monitoring in terms of hearing functions.

ABSTRACT

Objective: Diabetes is a metabolic syndrome characterized by hyperglycemia deriving from a defect in insulin secretion, insulin effect, or both. Varying levels of hearing loss may occur in patients with Type 1 diabetes. The purpose of this study was to investigate the hearing functions of children with Type 1 diabetes mellitus. At the same time, we also intended to examine the relationship between hearing loss and age at onset of diabetes, duration of diabetes and HbA1c levels.

A Pulsatile Tinnitus Case Associated with Internal Jugular Vein Stenosis Diagnosed by Multidetector Computerised Tomography Angiography

DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2016.552
Synopsis: 
ABSTRACT Tinnitus is a discomforting condition associated with a sound in one or both ears that occurs without an external stimulus and can be either pulsatile or continuous. Vascular and non-vascular factors involve in etiology of pulsatile tinnitus (PT) that requires a careful physical examination and evaluation with proper and sophisticated imaging techniques to identify the cause(s). In clinical experience, it is known that turning neck towards affected ear decreases PT, whereas turning neck towards unaffected side increases PT in venous hum, due to bending of internal jugular vein (IJV) over the transverse process of the atlas which leads to increased blood flow. In this report, we presented a rare PT case caused directly by jugular vein stenosis, in which clinical characteristics were in disagreement with the literature. In our case, PT markedly reduced, instead of being aggravated, when turning neck to unaffected side in a 35-year old woman. Moreover, there were axial maximal intensity above the left jugular bulb and about 85% stenosis in 3-D volume rendering images. We also discussed the differential diagnosis by multidetector computed tomography angiography with respect to its advantageous over other imagining techniques such as CT, MRI, and MRA as well as conventional angiography.

Vascular Endothelial Dysfunction Caused by Oxidative Stress is a Predictor Factor for Complications of Obstructive Sleep Apnea Syndrome

DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2015.383
Synopsis: 
We aimed to determine oxidative imbalance and vascular endothelial dysfunction as suspects for complications of OSAS. We found both oxidative stress and vascular endothelial dysfunction lead to early development of atherosclerosis which may cause the life-threatening complications of OSAS.

ABSTRACT

Objective: Obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS) is characterized by repetitive episodes of upper airway obstruction that occur during sleep which leads to cardiovascular, neurovascular and metabolic diseases. The mechanisms of complications in these patients are unclear. In this report, we aimed to determine the cause of oxidative imbalance in patients with OSAS and to evaluate the vascular endothelial dysfunction as a suspect for complications of the disease.
