Özet

Purpose: Heart rate variability (HRV) is a noninvasive and sensitive method used to evaluate autonomic function of the heart based on specific polysomnographic parameters. This study aimed to determine the effect of expansion sphincter pharyngoplasty (ESP) on HRV and the apnea-hypopnea index (AHI) in patients with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA).
