Comment on “Dysphagia and Obstructive Sleep Apnea in Acute, First-Ever, Ischemic Stroke”


We recently read the article by Losurdo et al published in the Journal of Stroke and Cerebrovascular Diseases.1 The authors suggest that both obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) and dysphagia are highly prevalent in first-ever, ischemic stroke, and these pathologies are associated in acute ischemic stroke. This is an interesting study, and the outcomes of the study are important for not only neurological sciences but also sleep medicine. We would like to emphasize 2 important issues regarding this article that should be taken into consideration.
