BACKGROUND The characteristics of atrial fibrillation (AF) episodes in cryptogenic stroke patients have recently been explored in carefully selected patient populations. However, the incidence of AF among a large, real-world population of patients with an insertable cardiac monitor (ICM) placed for the detection of AF following a cryptogenic stroke has not… CONTINUE READING
