Meta-Analysis of Implantable Loop Recorder for Atrial Fibrillation Detection in Patients With Ischemic Stroke

      Atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most common arrhythmia in adults and it is responsible for about one-third of all ischemic strokes.

      Detection of subclinical atrial fibrillation after stroke: is there enough evidence to treat?.
      Although prior studies have found more frequently detected AF following stroke with longer duration of monitoring, ambiguity remains regarding the optimal duration of ambulatory cardiac monitoring.

      Detection of subclinical atrial fibrillation after stroke: is there enough evidence to treat?.
      Therefore, we conducted a meta-analysis of solely randomized clinical trials (RCTs) to evaluate the efficacy and safety of implantable loop recorder (ILR) in AF detection, and subsequent reduction of recurrent strokes in patients with recent ischemic strokes.
