CONy 2023 | Prolonged cardiac monitoring in ischemic stroke patients

Hrvoje Budincevic, MD, PhD, FESO, Sveti Duh University Hospital, Zagreb, Croatia, debates whether every patient with ischemic stroke requires cardiac monitoring. According to current guidelines, every patient with cryptogenic stroke needs cardiac monitoring. However, whether this should be done in all ischemic stroke patients or whether there is any need to monitor people with another definite cause of stroke is unclear. Recent studies have shown the importance of cardiac monitoring in the detection of paroxysmal atrial fibrillation, one of the most significant causes of stroke. Longer cardiac monitoring can help detect paroxysmal atrial fibrillation in patients with cryptogenic stroke that could benefit from anticoagulation therapy. This interview took place at the 17th World Congress on Controversies in Neurology (CONy) in Dubrovnik, Croatia.
