Özet

Background and aim of the study: It was hypothesized that sleep disorders might be present due to functional heart failure in patients with mitral stenosis (MS), and might be accompanied by obstructive-type sleep disorders. To examine this hypothesis, non-smoker and non-obese patients with rheumatic MS and without concomitant diseases were investigated for sleep disorders.
