AbstractPurpose of ReviewSleep-wake disorders (SWD) are common not only in the general population but also in stroke patients, in whom SWD may be pre-existent or appear “de novo” as a consequence of brain damage. Despite increasing evidence of a negative impact of SWD on cardiocerebrovascular risk, cognitive functions, and quality of life, SWD are insufficiently considered in the prevention and management of patients with stroke. This narrative review aims at s ummarizing the current data on the bidirectional link between SWD and stroke.Recent FindingsSeveral studies have demonstrated that sleep-disordered brea...

AbstractPost-stroke recrudescence (PSR) usually occurs in the setting of infection, hypotension, hyponatremia, insomnia or stress, and benzodiazepine use. Animal studies have suggested an infection-related immunologic mechanism for PSR. This retrospective study was designed to assess whether infection-triggered PSR is related to a prior infection during the index stroke. We identified 95 patients admitted to Massachusetts General Hospital from 2000 to 2015 with post-stroke recrudescence who had adequate medical record information concerning the index stroke. The frequency of infections, as well as other triggers such as hy...

Authors: McDermott M, Brown DL, Chervin RD Abstract INTRODUCTION: Stroke is a major cause of disability and death in the United States and across the world, and the incidence and prevalence of stroke are expected to rise significantly due to an aging population. Obstructive sleep apnea, an established independent risk factor for stroke, is a highly prevalent disease that is estimated to double the risk of stroke. It remains uncertain whether non-apnea sleep disorders increase the risk of stroke. Areas covered: This paper reviews the literature describing the association between incident stroke and sleep apnea, REM sle...
