Prevalence and Significance of Restless Legs Syndrome in Patients with Coronary Artery Disease

Restless legs syndrome (RLS), characterized by leg restlessness and dysesthesia predominantly at night and at rest, disrupts sleep and quality of life. The reported prevalence of RLS is 2-5%. Although a relationship between RLS and coronary artery disease has been suggested, the prevalence and clinical significance of RLS in coronary artery disease patients remain unknown. We enrolled coronary artery disease patients undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention. Patients with RLS were identified according to international criteria.

Sleep disturbances such as excessive daytime sleepiness, central and obstructive sleep apneas, restless legs syndrome, and rapid eye movement sleep dysregulation are prominent in patients with myotonic dystrophy type 1 (DM1). Mild intellectual deficits presented in many patients with DM1. In addition, psychosocial issues caused by neuropsychiatric symptoms are a clinical problem. We herein present the cases of four DM1 patients with sleep disturbances and neuropsychiatric symptoms in the preceding stage of clinically significant muscle symptoms. One of the cases exhibited a sleep disorder and neuropsychiatric symptoms befo...

Authors: Vellieux G, d'Ortho MP Abstract Restless legs syndrome, also called Willis-Ekbom disease, is a frequent sensorimotor disease, more often encountered in women than men. It is characterized by an urge to move legs, during the evening or the beginning of the night, increased by rest and relieved by movement. Two forms are classically distinguished: primary restless legs syndrome occurring in young adults with family history and secondary forms occurring in older adults with comorbidities such as iron deficiency, chronic renal failure or neurological diseases (affecting central or peripheral nervous system). T...

Abstract A good night's sleep is a prerequisite for sustainable mental and physical health. Sleep disorders, including sleep disordered breathing, insomnia and sleep related motor dysfunction (e.g., restless legs syndrome), are common in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), especially in more severe disease. COPD is commonly associated with multimorbidity, and sleep disorders as a component of this multimorbidity spectrum have a further negative impact on COPD-related comorbidities. Indeed, concomitant diseases in COPD and in obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) are similar, suggesting that the com...
