Özet

Introduction: Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) syndrome is closely associated with cardiovascular and metabolic disorders. Recent studies reported that osteoarthritis (OA) is associated with cardiovascular disease as well as inflammation defined as "metabolic disorder": Due to the strong association of metabolic disorders with both OA and OSA, we aimed to investigate the association between severity of OSA and osteoarthritis grade based on X-Ray.
