OBJECTIVES To determine the prevalence of sleep apnea (SA) and SA syndrome (SAS) in patients with acromegaly and correlate SA with clinical, laboratory, and cephalometric parameters. DESIGN AND METHODS Prospective and cross-sectional study of 24 patients with active acromegaly evaluated by clinical and laboratory (GH, IGF-I) parameters, polysomnography and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the pharynx. RESULTS Out of 24 patients, 21 had SA (87.5%), of which 20 (95.3%) had the predominant… CONTINUE READING
