Consequences of obstructive sleep apnoea syndrome on left ventricular geometry and diastolic function
Conséquences du syndrome d’apnées du sommeil obstructif sur la géométrie et la fonction diastolique ventriculaire gauche

Figure 1

Figure 1 : 

Different types of left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH). A. Concentric LVH. B. Eccentric LVH. DIVGd: LV internal diameter, diastole; DIVGs: LV internal diameter, systole; PPVGd: LV posterior wall thickness, diastole; PPVGs: LV posterior wall thickness, systole; SIVd: interventricular septum thickness, diastole; SIVs: interventricular septum thickness, systole.

Pathophysiological mechanisms involved in obstructive sleep apnoea syndrome-related left ventricular remodelling and diastolic dysfunction. RAAS: renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system.

Figure 3 : 

Diastolic dysfunction markers: A. Enlarged left atrium. B. Prolonged isovolumic relaxation time. C. Decreased E/A ratio. D. Restrictive mitral inflow pattern. E. Lower early diastolic mitral annular velocity (Ea in this figure). F. Increased E/e′ ratio. TRIV: isovolumic relaxation time; VM E Vit: early diastolic mitral peak flow velocity; VM T déc: E deceleration time; VM A Vit: late diastolic mitral peak flow velocity; Ea: early diastolic mitral annular velocity (e′).
