STUDY OBJECTIVES It has been suggested that sleep-disordered breathing (SDB) is a risk factor for ischemic heart disease, and may be associated with increased morbidity and mortality due to cardiovascular disease. The aim of this study was to examine the relation between nocturnal oxygen desaturation (NOD) due to SDB and the Gensini score, which is given to define the severity of coronary atherosclerosis, based on coronary angiograms findings, in patients with coronary artery disease.

Nocturnal oxygen desaturation as a predictive risk factor for coronary restenosis after coronary intervention.

Findings suggest that nocturnal oxygen desaturation may be an important contributor to coronary restenosis in patients treated with stent placement.


A temporal association exist between nocturnal myocardial ischemia and sleep apnea and hypopnea or desaturation in some patients withNocturnal STsegment depression and the correlation of severity of OSA to severity of CAD is illustrated.

Association between Obstructive Sleep Apnea and SYNTAX Score

The results suggest that the severity of CAD is related to moderate-to-severe OSA, and patients who underwent their first coronary angiography to evaluate CAD and polysomnography to investigateThe severity of OSA in the authors' hospital from March 2002 to May 2015 are suggested.

Obstructive sleep apnea, diagnosed by the Berlin questionnaire and association with coronary artery disease severity

It is indicated that more severe CAD is associated with high OSAS probability identified by BQ, and OSAS also increase odds of CAD based on regression analysis.

Severe obstructive sleep apnea is associated with significant coronary artery plaque burden independent of traditional cardiovascular risk factors

Mechanisms associated with apnea and hypopnea events, but not the severity of arterial desaturation, were associated with significant CPB, while markers of hypoxemia, AHI, ODI4% and ODI3% were the only parameters associated withsignificant CPB.

High risk for sleep apnea in the Berlin questionnaire and coronary artery disease

In conclusion, simple questionnaire-based diagnostic tools can be included in the screening procedures of patients with angina to detect the need for further OSA evaluation and the Berlin questionnaire is an effective instrument for this purpose.

Severity of obstructive sleep apnoea predicts coronary artery plaque burden: a coronary computed tomographic angiography study

It is found that severity of OSA may predict occult coronary atherosclerosis in otherwise healthy overweight or obese male subjects.

Independent association between obstructive sleep apnea and subclinical coronary artery disease.

In patients without clinical coronary disease, the presence and severity of OSA is independently associated with the presence of CAC and may represent a highly prevalent modifiable risk factor.

CPAP effect on recurrent episodes in patients with sleep apnea and myocardial infarction.

Severity of obstructive sleep apnea and extension of coronary artery disease

The results suggest that OSA influences CAD pathogenesis but a dose-response relationship is unlikely, and moderate-severe OSA was associated with the presence of CAD but no significant correlation was found between the lesion severity and the AHI.



Sleep-disordered breathing in men with coronary artery disease.

A significant association between sleep apnea with nocturnal hypoxemia and CAD remains after adjustment for age, hypertension, body mass index, diabetes, and smoking.

Sleep-disordered breathing and myocardial ischemia in patients with coronary artery disease.

A temporal relationship between sleep-disordered breathing and myocardial ischemia is present only in a minority of the patients, but occurs more frequently in men and in more severely disordered breathing.

Sleep apnoea in ischaemic heart disease: differences between acute and chronic coronary syndromes

Sleep apnoea, chiefly of the central type, not only characterises acute myocardial infarction, as found by others, but also unstable angina studied after recent stabilisation shows that coronary disease related apNoea is absent in the chronic coronary syndrome.

Obstructive sleep apnea and acute myocardial infarction: clinical implications of the association.

Despite the greater incidence of some types of cardiac arrhythmias during an acute MI in OSA, patients with acute myocardial infarction with coexistent obstructive sleep apnea have the same clinical course in hospital and mortality rate as nonOSA patients.

Fibrinogen levels and obstructive sleep apnea in ischemic stroke.

The correlation between severity of coexisting OSA and fibrinogen level in patients with stroke suggests a possible pathophysiological mechanism for an increased risk of stroke in patientswith OSA.

Prognostic value of nocturnal Cheyne-Stokes respiration in chronic heart failure.

The AHI is a powerful independent predictor of poor prognosis in clinically stable patients with CHF and patients at very high risk for subsequent cardiac death could be identified by an AHI >/=30/h and left atria </=25 cm2.

Sleep-disordered breathing and cardiovascular disease: cross-sectional results of the Sleep Heart Health Study.

Findings are compatible with modest to moderate effects of sleep-disordered breathing on heterogeneous manifestations of CVD within a range of AHI values that are considered normal or only mildly elevated.

Sleep-related myocardial ischemia and sleep structure in patients with obstructive sleep apnea and coronary heart disease.

It is concluded that patients with CHD and obstructive sleep apnea are endangered by apnea-associated ischemia and that these ischemic episodes lead to activation of the CNS and additional fragmentation of sleep.

Obstructive sleep apnoea syndrome as a risk factor for hypertension: population study

Sleep apnoea syndrome is profoundly associated with hypertension independent of all relevant risk factors, and is a significant predictor of both systolic and diastolic blood pressure after adjustment for age, body mass index, and sex.
