BACKGROUND Previous studies have suggested that the obstructive sleep apnea syndrome may be an important risk factor for stroke. It has not been determined, however, whether the syndrome is independently related to the risk of stroke or death from any cause after adjustment for other risk factors, including hypertension. METHODS In this observational cohort study, consecutive patients underwent polysomnography, and subsequent events (strokes and deaths) were verified. The diagnosis of the… Expand

TLDR
The strong adjusted association between ischemic stroke and OAHI in community-dwelling men with mild to moderate sleep apnea suggests that this is an appropriate target for future stroke prevention trials. Expand

TLDR
Investigating whether obstructive or central sleep apnea was related to reduced long-term survival among patients with stroke found it to be an independent risk factor for mortality. Expand

TLDR
Over the past quarter century, multiple studies have firmly established an association between obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS) and stroke, and in many cases, the symptoms of OSAS precede the occurrence of stroke, suggesting a cause-and-effect relationship. Expand

TLDR
The present study showed that the increased mortality was also associated with the increased severity of OSA in Koreans as shown in the studies performed in the Western countries. Expand

TLDR
OSA in patients with AF is an independent predictor of stroke, and this association may have important clinical implications in ischemic stroke risk stratification. Expand

TLDR
Treatment of OSA may reduce new first‐time cerebrovascular events and recurrences and be associated positively with SCI and lacunar infarction in elderly participants. Expand

TLDR
The presence of hypertension and diabetes-the 2 most common comorbid conditions in obstructive sleep apnea-should prompt diagnostic workup for and treatment of obstructiveSleep apnea as a way of primary and secondary prevention of stroke. Expand

Sleep apnea in acute cerebrovascular diseases: final report on 128 patients.
TLDR
Sleep apnea has a high frequency in patients with TIA and stroke, particularly in older patients with high BMI, diabetes, and severe stroke, which may have implications for prevention, acute treatment, and rehabilitation of patients with acute cerebrovascular diseases. Expand
Investigating the relationship between stroke and obstructive sleep apnea.
TLDR
Patients with stroke have an increased incidence of obstructive sleep apnea compared with normal sex- and age-matched control subjects, which may have predisposed these patients to stroke. Expand
Epidemiology of obstructive sleep apnea: a population health perspective.
TLDR
Evidence from methodologically strong cohort studies indicates that undiagnosed obstructive sleep apnea, with or without symptoms, is independently associated with increased likelihood of hypertension, cardiovascular disease, stroke, daytime sleepiness, motor vehicle accidents, and diminished quality of life. Expand
Cerebral hemodynamic changes in sleep apnea syndrome and effect of continuous positive airway pressure treatment
TLDR
These findings suggest an association between OSAS and diminished cerebral vasodilator reserve, related to the increased susceptibility to cerebral ischemia in patients with OSAS, particularly evident in the early morning. Expand

TLDR
It is interpreted to suggest that SAS affects death indirectly, most probably by being a risk factor for hypertension. Expand
The occurrence of sleep-disordered breathing among middle-aged adults.
TLDR
The prevalence of undiagnosed sleep-disordered breathing is high among men and is much higher than previously suspected among women, and is associated with daytime hypersomnolence. Expand

Blood flow of the middle cerebral artery with sleep-disordered breathing: correlation with obstructive hypopneas.
TLDR
Observations indicate pathophysiology relevant to an increased risk for stroke in heavy snorers and patients with obstructive hypopneas and apneas, MCA blood flow is more often decreased in comparison to central apnea. Expand
Long-term cardiovascular outcomes in men with obstructive sleep apnoea-hypopnoea with or without treatment with continuous positive airway pressure: an observational study
TLDR
In men, severe obstructive sleep apnoea-hypopNoea significantly increases the risk of fatal and non-fatal cardiovascular events and CPAP treatment reduces this risk. Expand

TLDR
The attenuation of morning increases in the plasma fibrinogen concentration and WBV induced by NCPAP treatment may contribute to an overall improvement in the mortality from cardiovascular events in patients with OSAS. Expand
