Özet

Introduction: Atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most common etiological factor involved in ischemic stroke. There are no definitive data regarding the prevalence of paroxysmal AF (PAF)-related ischemic stroke. In this study, we prospectively evaluated clinical, radiological and transthoracic echocardiography(TTE) findings and their association with stroke outcomes.
