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

DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2016.225
Synopsis: 
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.

ABSTRACT

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.

Flow Mediated Vasodilation and some Biomarkers of Endothelial Activation in Pre-hypertensive Objects

DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2015.033
Synopsis: 
The goal of the study is to assess endothelial activation by FMD and ADMA, sICAM and sVCAM levels in pre-Hypertensive objects. Compared to intima-media thickness, these data are going to be evaluated as an eventual predicators of pre-hypertensive objects. Compared to intima-media thickness, these data were to be evaluated as eventual predicators of pre-hypertension.
