Sleep apnea is common in acromegaly and both diseases are independently associated with hypertension and insulin resistance contributing to increased morbidity and mortality. Respiratory polygraphy is a simpler alternative to in-laboratory polysomnography for the management of more symptomatic patients with obstructive sleep apnea.
The aim of this study is to evaluate the prevalence of sleep apnea by respiratory polygraphy, and to analyze the effect of transsphenoidal surgery on sleep apnea.
