Paroxysmal atrial fibrillation is more prevalent than persistent atrial fibrillation in acute stroke and transient ischemic attack patients.

Abstract

More extensive diagnostic effort is required to detect paroxysmal AF (pxAF) than persistent AF (pAF); the prevalence of pxAF in stroke patients is unknown. We evaluated the prevalence of pAF and pxAF in ischemic stroke and TIA patients. METHODS… (More)
