|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment|
|Cerebrovascular Stroke Atrial Fibrillation||Device: Implantation of ICRM|
It will be enrolled 250 participants of both sexes within two weeks after diagnosed cryptogenic stroke and/or TIA at Akershus University Hospital, Oslo area, Norway.
Evaluation of participants' comorbidity with CHADS2-VASc score, ECG, Holter ECG, echocardiography, detection of biochemical cardiac markers and screening for obstructive sleep apnea syndrome will be performed. All participants will be monitored with a continuous cardiac rhythm during one year by implantation of implantable cardiac rhythm monitors (ICRM). All patients without high bleeding risk will get prescribed oral anticoagulants (OAC) after detection of PAF.
A biobank will be established in order to store the sampled biological material.
