    • Cardiac systolic function in Greek children with obstructive sleep-disordered breathing 

      Kaditis, A. G.; Alexopoulos, E. I.; Dalapascha, M.; Papageorgiou, K.; Kostadima, E.; Kaditis, D. G.; Gourgoulianis, K.; Zakynthinos, E. (2010)
      Background: Obstructive sleep-disordered breathing (SOB) in children has been associated with increased ventricular strain and decreased left ventricle (LV) diastolic function. The aim of this study was to assess systolic ...
    • Comparison of blood pressure measurements in children with and without habitual snoring 

      Kaditis, A. G.; Alexopoulos, E. I.; Kostadima, E.; Kaditis, D. G.; Pastaka, C.; Zintzaras, E.; Gourgoulianis, K. (2005)
      Higher or similar systolic and/or diastolic blood pressure has been recorded in children with sleep apnea compared to subjects with primary snoring or in those with primary snoring compared to controls. To investigate the ...
    • Morning levels of fibrinogen in children with sleep-disordered breathing 

      Kaditis, A. G.; Alexopoulos, E. I.; Kalampouka, E.; Kostadima, E.; Angelopoulos, N.; Germenis, A.; Zintzaras, E.; Gourgoulianis, K. (2004)
      Elevated fibrinogen level is a predictor of cardiovascular disease in adults, and it is associated with sleep-disordered breathing. Levels of fibrinogen in adults are affected by other co-existing cardiovascular risk ...
    • Obstructive sleep-disordered breathing and fasting insulin levels in nonobese children 

      Kaditis, A. G.; Alexopoulos, E. I.; Damani, E.; Karadonta, I.; Kostadima, E.; Tsolakidou, A.; Gourgoulianis, K.; Syrogiannopoulos, G. A. (2005)
      A positive correlation of severity of sleep-disordered breathing with morning fasting insulin levels, which is independent of obesity, was reported in adults and obese children. We hypothesized that both severity of ...
    • Overnight change in brain natriuretic peptide levels in children with sleep-disordered breathing 

      Kaditis, A. G.; Alexopoulos, E. I.; Hatzi, F.; Kostadima, E.; Kiaffas, M.; Zakynthinos, E.; Gourgoulianis, K. (2006)
      Study objectives: Obstructive sleep-disordered breathing is accompanied by episodic increases in left ventricle afterload due to large negative swings in intrathoracic pressure and repetitive surges in arterial pressure. ...
