BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Detection rates of paroxysmal atrial fibrillation (AF) after acute ischemic stroke increase with duration of ECG monitoring. To date, it is unknown which patient group may benefit most from intensive monitoring strategies. Therefore, we aimed to identify predictors of previously unknown AF during in-hospital ECG monitoring. METHODS All consecutive patients with imaging-confirmed ischemic stroke admitted to our tertiary care hospital from February 2011 to December 2013… CONTINUE READING
