Finding Atrial Fibrillation in Patients With Unexplained Stroke Using Longterm Cardiac Monitoring
This trial is active, not recruiting.
|Start date||April 2010|
|End date||October 2013|
|Trial size||100 participants|
|Trial identifier||NCT01498146, H-4-2010-014|
The SURPRISE study investigates atrial fibrillation(AFIB) in patients with a previous unexplained stroke. It uses long term monitoring of the heart of up to three years, searching for paroxysmal atrial fibrillation(PAF) otherwise undetected in this population.
Male or female participants at least 18 months old.
Inclusion Criteria: - Computerized Tomography (CT) or Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) verified cryptogenic stroke or TIA; - > 18 years of age, - the ability to provide a written consent Exclusion Criteria: - prior or known AFIB - AF found during work up including 24 hour telemetric monitoring.
|Official title||Stroke Prior to Diagnosis of Atrial Fibrillation Using Longterm Observation With Implantable Cardiac Monitoring Apparatus Reveal(SURPRISE) -the SURPRISE Study|
|Principal investigator||Hanne Christensen, MD, PhD, DMSci|
|Description||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.|
