Long term variations of arterail stiffness in patients with obesity and obstructive sleep apnea treated with CPAP

Publié par Louis-Marie Galerneau, en 2020 - PLoS One

Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is associated with cardiovascular co-morbidities and mortality. Arterial stiffness is an independent predictor of cardiovascular risk and mortality, and is influenced by the presence of OSA and related comorbidities. There is a paucity of data regarding long-term evolution of arterial stiffness in CPAP-treated OSA patients. We aimed to prospectively study long term PWV variations and determinants of PWV deterioration.
