Detection of Occult Paroxysmal Atrial Fibrillation After Stroke Using Prolonged Ambulatory Cardiac Monitoring

Summary of Purpose

About one-third of patients with stroke have no documented cause for the cerebrovascular event (known as cryptogenic strokes). Atrial fibrillation is a common cause of stroke, but when transient (paroxysmal) it may remain undiagnosed.
