Sleep apnea-hypopnea syndrome (SAHS) is characterized by recurrent episodes of hypoxia/reoxygenation, which seems to promote oxidative stress. SAHS patients experience increases in hypertension, obesity, and dyslipidemia, and the oxidative state has been related to the genesis of these disorders. The purpose of this study was to examine the changes in(More)
BACKGROUND The sleep apnea-hypopnea syndrome is associated with elevated oxidative stress, which is associated with reduced levels and functional impairment of progenitor cells. OBJECTIVE To evaluate whether one month of CPAP treatment affects circulating-progenitor-cell levels and oxidative stress in patients with sleep apnea-hypopnea syndrome. (More)
BACKGROUND Several indirect techniques have been used for measuring oxidative stress in sleep apnoea-hypopnoea syndrome (SAHS) patients. The purpose of this study was to find out if both, cellular or plasma oxidative stress evaluations, are good estimators to assess oxidative stress in SAHS patients before and after one month's CPAP treatment. METHODS The(More)
Sleep apnea–hypopnea syndrome (SAHS) is characterized by recurrent episodes of hypoxia/reoxygenation, which seems to promote oxidative stress. SAHS patients experience increases in hypertension, obesity and insulin resistance (IR). The purpose was to evaluate in SAHS patients the effects of 1 month of treatment with continuous positive airway pressure(More)
We report the case of a 38 y old man with antiphospholipid syndrome and exceptionally extensive central vein thrombosis in the right internal jugular vein, superior vena cava, and both subclavian veins. In spite of intensive anticoagulation therapy there was only a partial response. We suggest the MR angiography be the reference standard for diagnosis in(More)
