You might be interested in a latest study published in Stroke (August). The study is the first outcome evidence available for long-term heart monitoring in patients with unexplained stroke.
The study titled ‘Prolonged Cardiac Rhythm Monitoring and Secondary Stroke Prevention in Patients With Cryptogenic Cerebral Ischemia’ shows that long-term heart monitoring is associated with higher rate of atrial fibrillation detection, higher incidence of anticoagulation initiation, and reduced stroke recurrence in patients with cryptogenic ischaemic stroke (IS) or transient ischaemic attack (TIA).
Some information of the study is attached here Media information_Long-term heart monitoring study in recurrent stroke for editorial. If you’d like to speak to or get some comments from a local expert on this topic, please feel free to reach out to me and send me your questions if of interest.
