OBJECTIVE Cerebrovascular reactivity is impaired in patients suffering from obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS) as demonstrated by transcranial Doppler studies. We use magnetic resonance imaging techniques to investigate the anatomical distribution of cerebrovascular reactivity changes in patients with OSAS, as well as their evolution after therapeutic and sham continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) treatment. METHODS Twenty-three men with moderate or severe obstructive sleep apnea… CONTINUE READING
