New Stroke Outcomes Data

In June 2019, Prof George Tsivgoulis et al. published new data which showed that prolonged cardiac monitoring (PCM) has a significant impact on secondary stroke prevention.1

This meta-analysis found that patients who underwent PCM compared to conventional cardiac monitoring showed: 

  • 2.5x increased incidence of AF detection
  • 2.1x increased incidence of anticoagulation initiation 
  • 55% decreased risk of recurrent stroke

WATCH Paul Ziegler, scientist and Bakken Fellow, explain the objectives, methodology and primary findings of this meta-analysis.
