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-analysis2 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
