    Choroidal thickness changes in obstructive sleep apnea syndrome: a systematic review and meta-analysis

    Purpose Obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS) is a common chronic disorder associated with hypoxia and endothelial and vascular dysfunction. Many studies have analyzed choroidal thickness measurements in patients with different severities of OSAS versus normal subjects by optical coherence tomography (OCT), but the results have been inconsistent. Therefore, a meta-analysis was performed to evaluate the choroidal thickness changes in OSAS measured by OCT. Methods Pertinent studies were retrieved by a comprehensive search of PubMed, Embase, Web of Science, and the Cochrane Library from inception to August 2015. For continuous outcomes, the weighted mean difference (WMD) and 95 % confidence interval (CI ...
