To treat lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) and erectile dysfunction (ED), we mainly have symptomatic drug treatments. Some patients are resistant to the treatments that we have or are forced to stop treatments because of side effects.
It would be interesting to focus on comorbidities and to evaluate whether it is possible to improve the urological symptoms by taking care the comorbidities, which would consist in an etiological treatment of the urological symptoms.
The aim of the study is to evaluate the evolution of low urinary tract disorders (LUTS) and erectile dysfunction (ED) in patients with obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS) following by continuous positive airway pressure equipment (CPAP) at night.
Participation in the study will be offered to all patients, men and women, consulting or hospitalized in the sleep unit of the department of pneumology CHU of Reims for a nocturnal ventilatory polygraphy or a polysomnography diagnostic of OSAS.
Men will complete three questionnaires about LUTS and DE, women one questionnaire about LUTS. The questionnaires will be completed twice, the first time when consulting at the sleep unit for nocturnal ventilatory polygraphy or a polysomnography diagnostic of OSAS ; the second time during the pneumology consultation three months later. We will compare the results between the questionnaires to assess whether OSAS equipment with CPAP has improved urologic symptoms.
If the management of OSAS allows an improvement of lower urinary tract disorders and / or an improvement of erectile dysfunction, these results would be interesting for the management of patients resistant to symptomatic drug treatments or to stop them because of iatrogenic side effects.
Etiological rather than symptomatic management would also have long-term benefits, both in improving the overall quality of life of the patient and in the medical and economic field.
It might be interesting to identify in urology consultation among patients consulting for LUTS or ED, patients at risk of presenting OSAS and referring them to a pulmonologist to manage OSAS if it exists, from the beginning of the urological care.
