ischemic heart disease and sleep apnea

I have ischemic heart disease and sleep apnea. The veterans administration came out with a new presumptive for agent orange " ischemic heart disease" I was wondering if there was any medical studies that showed sleep apnea was secondary to heart disease. I have read posts which state sleep apnea might lead to heart disease,but can heart disease
cause sleep apnea.

In general, sleep apnea is what causes heart disease (mainly the obstructive type), but there's controversy about heart disease and its' association with central sleep apnea.
