SESSION TITLE: Obstructive Sleep Apnea

SESSION TYPE: Original Investigation Slide

PRESENTED ON: Saturday, April 16, 2016 at 01:00 PM - 02:00 PM

PURPOSE: Recent studies showed that that osteoarthritis (OA) is associated with cardiovascular disease and inflammation due to this OA defined as “metabolic disorder”. Obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS) is closely associated with cardiovascular and metabolic disorders. Intermittent hypoxia, systemic inflammation and sympathetic activation are the main causes of cardiometabolic derangements in OSAS. With this background in mind, we aimed to evaluate the role of OSAS in the development of OA severity and to investigate whether there is an association between severity of OSAS and OA severity.
