Abstract

Urological Manifestations of Obstructive Sleep Apnea Syndrome: A Review of Current Literature

Gautam Dagur, Kelly Warren, Sedrick Ambroise, Reese Imhof, Sardar A. Khan

Sleep apnea syndrome is a common health issue that is frequently found in patients with obesity associated cardiovascular and respiratory disorders. Patients with sleep apnea suffer from hypoxia during sleep, resulting in metabolic dysfunction of various organ specific symptoms. Obstructive sleep apnea syndrome results in critical psychological symptoms, which include depression and suicidal tendencies. Sleep apnea syndrome carries significant morbidity and mortality that is frequently ignored by healthcare providers. A high percentage of sleep apnea patients suffer from genitourinary symptoms, such as frequency, nocturia, erectile dysfunction, enuresis, and overactive bladder. Current concepts of sleep apnea, as related to urological health issues, are discussed to facilitate treatment options of sleep apnea syndrome. Current literature is reviewed related to genitourinary symptoms.
