OBJECTIVES To determine the prevalence of sleep-disordered breathing in children with sickle cell disease and whether there is an association of sleep-disordered breathing with high-risk transcranial Doppler ultrasonography (TCD) velocities. Study DESIGN Cross-sectional. SETTING Tertiary care academic medical center. PATIENTS Sixty-four children (aged 2-14 years) selected for eligible genotype (type SS or Sβ(0)-thalassemia) and no history of stroke. INTERVENTIONS Parents completed the… CONTINUE READING
