Obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS) is associated with increases in cardiovascular morbidity and mortality. Vascular changes in individuals with OSAS have not been fully elucidated, however. The possible impact of OSAS on the extent of aortic pressure augmentation (AG), an indicator of cardiovascular risk, was investigated. Forty-five consecutive male patients aged 35 to 78 years (56.0±9.6 years) who were referred to the sleep clinic of Nagoya University Hospital for screening and treatment… CONTINUE READING
