When considered separately from cardiovascular disease, stroke is the third leading cause of death and ranks as the leading cause of long-term disability [1]. Strategies for stroke treatment and prevention have helped to reduce the burden of disease, but it remains an important public health challenge [2]. Therefore, understanding underlying causes of disease and developing novel therapeutic approaches for stroke is of crucial importance. Understanding the link between sleep apnea and stroke may represent one such novel approach.
