Synopsis: 
Obstructive sleep apnoea syndrome is an independent risk factor of morbidity and mortality in cardiovascular diseases. In this study, there was significant correlation between the left ventricular diastolic dysfunction and changes in cardiac geometry in patients with obstructive sleep apnoea syndrome.

ABSTRACT

Background: The aim of this study is to evaluate the correlation of the left ventricular diastolic function and the left ventricular geometry in patients with obstructive sleep apnoea syndrome (OSAS) by echocardiography.
