Introduction: In the current population, strokes are one of the most important causes of morbidity and mortality, to which new risk factors are increasingly being attributed. Of late, there is increased interest in the relationship between sleep disorders and strokes as regards risk and prognosis. Development: This article presents the changes in sleep architecture and brain activity in stroke patients, as well as the interaction between stroke and sleep disorders, including those which may also influence the outcome and recovery from strokes. The different treatments discussed in the literature are also reviewed, as correct treatment of such sleep disorders may not only improve quality of life and reduce after-effects, but can also increase life expectancy. Conclusions: Sleep disorders are becoming increasingly associated with stroke. In addition to being a risk factor, they can also interfere in the outcome and recovery of stroke patients. This article aims to present an exhaustive and current review on strokes and their relationship with sleep alterations and sleep disorders.
