    Background: In literature, electrocardiographic (ECG) changes and the increase in the levels of the natriuretic peptide are shown to occur in patients having acute ischemic stroke. We aimed to investigate the association between ECG alterations and NT pro B-type natriuretic peptide (NT-proBNP)...

    Background. Atrial fibrillation is known very frequent cause of ischemic stroke. Undetected paroxysmal atrial fibrillation (PAF) is thus often considered a possible cause of cryptogenic ischemic stroke (CIS). The aim of this prospective study was to detect PAF using ECG Holter monitoring and...
