    Abstract : Introduction: Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a highly prevalent disorder, especially in populations with cardiovascular disease. Unfortunately most cases with OSA remain undiagnosed. READ MORE

  2. 2. Diagnosis of interatrial shunts and the influence of patent foramen ovale on oxygen desaturation in obstructive sleep apnea

    Author : Magnus C Johansson; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : Patent foramen ovale; atrial septal defect; obstructive sleep apnea; contrast transesophageal echocardiography; percutaneous closure;

    Abstract : Patent foramen ovale (PFO) is found in 27% of the population and although mostly asymptomatic, PFO has been associated with e.g. cryptogenic stroke and, rarely, also with oxygen desaturation. PFO and atrial septal defects may nowadays be closed percutaneously without open heart surgery. READ MORE

  3. 3. Quantitative sensory testing, obstructive sleep apnea and peripheral nervous lesions
