Relationships between MRI fat distributions and sleep apnea and obesity hypoventilation syndrome in very obese patients.

Abstract:

Purpose

Obesity is associated with both obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) and obesity hypoventilation. Differences in adipose tissue distribution are thought to underlie the development of both OSA and hypoventilation. We explored the relationships between the distribution of upper airway, neck, chest, abdominal and muscle fat in very obese individuals.
