Abstract: In this article we provide an overview of the current evidence based knowledge related to stroke and obstructive sleep apnea. A literature search was conducted in Medline and Pubmed of National Library of Medicine. We focused the search on the independent risk prevalence, mortality, relationship between OSA and stroke/TIA. Physiopathology mechanisms by which OSA might increase the risk for stroke, recurrence of OSA and recovery outcomes with CPAP therapy are also reported.
