BACKGROUND Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is common among patients with coronary artery disease. However, OSA remains largely under recognized. The lack of clinical suspicion and difficulties to access full polysomnography (PSG) are limiting factors. The aim of this study was to evaluate, among patients referred to coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG): (i)(More)
Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is an independent risk factor for complications after surgery. However, OSA remains largely under recognized, and questionnaires designed to detect OSA have shown inconsistent results. Patients with cardiovascular diseases may not present with the typical symptoms of OSA. We therefore sought to compare the performance of(More)
BACKGROUND The impact of OSA on new cardiovascular events in patients undergoing coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgery is poorly explored. METHODS Consecutive patients referred for CABG underwent clinical evaluation and standard polysomnography in the preoperative period. CABG surgery data, including percentage of off-pump and on-pump CABG, number(More)
Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) is the most common genetic cardiac disease and is characterized by large and asymmetric septal and left ventricle hypertrophy. HCM is a cause of disability, including heart failure, atrial fibrillation, and sudden death, with an annual mortality varying from 1% to 6%. Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is extremely common among(More)
BACKGROUND OSA pathogenesis is complex and may vary according to ethnicity. The anatomic component predisposing to OSA is the result of the interaction between bony structure and upper airway soft tissues and can be assessed using passive critical closing pressure (Pcrit). We hypothesized that Japanese-Brazilians and whites present different predictors of(More)
OBJECTIVE Refractory angina is a severe form of coronary artery disease (CAD) characterized by persistent angina despite optimal medical therapy. OSA and depression are common in patients with stable CAD and may contribute to a poor prognosis. We hypothesized that OSA and depression are more common and more severe in patients with refractory angina than in(More)
