Atrial fibrillation (AF) is a well-defined risk factor for ischemic stroke. Patients with lone AF represent a subgroup of AF patients with the lowest lifelong stroke risk. Nonvalvular atrial fibrillation (NVAF) confers a hypercoagulable state resulting in an increased risk of thromboembolism. This study was performed to determine the contributory role of alteration in the hemostatic markers of thrombin generation and fibrinolysis in patients with lone AF during acute ischemic stroke episode.
