In the present study, we found that alterations in echocardiographic parameters of RV remodeling, including an increase in RVWT and RVID, were important features in OSA patients without major comorbidities.
An independent effect of OSA on RV structure and performance was observed in a number of studies, showing a correlation between AHI and RV parameters, such as RV MPI [18, 21, 26], RV EF [12, 21], RV S' [17, 19, 23], RVID [17], RVWT [26], TAPSE [26, 29], and RV strain variables [27, 29, 30].
RVID: right ventricular basal diameter measured at end-diastole; RVWT: right ventricular wall thickness; RV MPI: right ventricular myocardial performance index; RV S': tricuspid annular systolic velocity; TAPSE: tricuspid annular plane systolic excursion; RV FAC: right ventricular fractional area change; OSA: obstructive sleep apnea; ESS: Epworth Sleepiness Scale; PSG: polysomnography; AHI: apnea-hypopnea index; PAP: pulmonary artery pressure; N/A: not applicable.
