Datataken knowledge were recorded standard form that allpatients with night polysomnographic recordings parametersand the presence of enuresis.Results: The mean age of patients was 45.0 ± 11.7 years.54% of the patients were male and 46% female. Themean apnea-hypopnea index of the patients was 13.07events/h. Frequency of enuresis was found 19%, nocturiafrequency was found to be 55%.
