Floppy eyelid syndrome is associated with obstructive sleep apnoea: a prospective study on 127 patients
Journal of Sleep Research, 06/08/2012
Chambe J et al. – The findings show an association between obstructive sleep apnoea syndrome (OSAS) severity and floppy eyelid syndrome (FES) and suggest that severe OSAS might be an independent risk factor for FES. These two disorders may share common biological determinants, such as tissue elasticity. Finally, clinicians should be aware of this association so that underlying OSAS or FES can be detected.
