The SURPRISE study investigates the patients with cryptogenic stroke or transient ischemic attack (TIA), monitoring them with a cardiac loop recorder for up to three years.
it aims at estimating the amount of paroxysmal atrial fibrillation within our population of cryptogenic stroke patients.
Standard workup for a stroke patient does offer cardiac evaluation, but monitoring is limited to the time admitted, often just a few days.
