  Purpose
The purpose of this study is to determine whether patients with obstructive sleep apnea have any changes in left ventricular function and structure after 06 months of continuous positive airway pressure treatment.

Condition Intervention
Obstructive Sleep Apnea Device: CPAP (continuous positive airway pressure)

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Double (Participant, Investigator)
Primary Purpose: Diagnostic
Official Title: Structural and Functional Left Ventricular Remodelling in Patients With Obstructive Sleep Apnea

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Improvement of left ventricular diastolic echo variable [ Time Frame: 06 months ]

Enrollment: 450
Study Start Date: October 2009
Study Completion Date: September 2010
Primary Completion Date: October 2009 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Sham Comparator: Sham CPAP
Patients submitted to SHAM CPAP use for 06 months
Device: CPAP (continuous positive airway pressure)
Patients treated by CPAP for 06 months
Active Comparator: CPAP
OSA patients submitted to 06 months of CPAP treatment
Device: CPAP (continuous positive airway pressure)
Patients treated by CPAP for 06 months

Detailed Description:
Several studies have been suggesting that Obstructive Sleep Apnea contributes to deterioration of left ventricular diastolic function. It may be associated to increased risk of cardiovascular events. We hypothesized that morphological and functional left ventricular changes might be reverted after treatment with Continuous positive airway pressure.
