AbstractThe study investigates whether cortical arousals and periodic limb movements during sleep are related to daytime psychological functioning in children with monosymptomatic nocturnal enuresis with associated nocturnal polyuria. Psychological functioning is evaluated on five domains: attention deficit hyperactivity disorder—inattentive problems, quality of life, internalizing problems, externalizing problems, and executive functioning. This multi-informant (parents, teachers, and children… 
Periodic limb movements during sleep are associated with poor health-related quality of life in patients with obstructive sleep apnea
TLDR
Health-related quality of life, including physical and mental health but not depressive symptoms, was worse in subjects with OSA and PLMS than in those without PLMS, and the relationship between PLMS and disturbed sleep was no longer significant after adjusting for age.
The Clinical Importance of Periodic Leg Movements in Sleep
TLDR
This chapter tries to sum up the most relevant PLMS-related findings, focusing on the relationship between PLMS and the cardiovascular system, in order to understand the clinical implication of this complex motor phenomenon.
Changes in attention variables in those who treated with anticholinergic agents for nonmonosymptomatic enuresis
Purpose Brain dysfunction related to areas regarding attention and arousal may occur not only in patients with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) but also in patients with enuresis and
Prevalence and correlates of periodic limb movements in OSA and the effect of CPAP therapy
TLDR
After controlling for OSA and depression, PLMS were associated with increased sleep latency, reduced sleep efficiency, and reduced total sleep time and are associated with a significant reduction in sleep quality over and above that conferred by OSA.

Relationship of sleep quality and quality of life in children with monosymptomatic enuresis.
TLDR
As age of the child and duration of enuresis increase, self-esteem domain of QoL worsens and there is a significant correlation of physical well-being and friends domains ofQoL score and total and daytime dysfunction scores of PSQI.
Children show individual night-to-night variability of periodic limb movements in sleep.
TLDR
In this sample of children, considerable individual night-to-night variability of PLMS indexes was observed, suggesting that individual PLMS variability is random and not likely to skew the group-level analysis of treatment outcome studies.
Prevalence of periodic limb movements during sleep in normal children.
TLDR
This study provides normative data to the field and supports the clinical periodic limb movement index cutoff of > 5/h based on both prevalence and the correlate of increased sleep fragmentation.
Sleep and sleepiness in children with nocturnal enuresis.
TLDR
Compared with the sleep of control subjects, the natural sleep of children with nocturnal enuresis is significantly more fragmented, and the children with NE experience higher levels of daytime sleepiness, which may explain their higher arousal threshold.
Attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder in children with nocturnal enuresis.
TLDR
The prevalence of attention deficit disorder or ADHD in nocturnal enuresis is significantly increased, especially in older children, and the incidence ofNocturnal polyuria is slightly increased in children who meet at least the criteria of ADHD hyperactive/impulsive subtype.
Psychological Problems in Children With Daytime Wetting
TLDR
The increased vulnerability to psychological problems in children as young as 7 years of age with daytime wetting highlights the importance of parents seeking early intervention for the condition to help prevent later psychological problems.
Abnormal sleep architecture and refractory nocturnal enuresis.
Clinical correlates of enuresis in ADHD and non-ADHD children.
TLDR
Enuresis did not increase the risk for psychopathology in children with or without ADHD, and the clinical implications of enuresis may differ for ADHD and non-ADHD children.
