UNLABELLED Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is often accompanied by cardiovascular and metabolic disorders. The renin-angiotensin system plays an important role of the cardiovascular regulation. The activity of the angiotensin converting enzyme is genetically determined. The aim of the study was to estimate the relation between angiotensin converting gene polymorphism and cardiovascular diseases or familial history in patients with obstructive sleep apnea. 63 patients with OSA were enrolled to the… CONTINUE READING
