|Official Title:||The Effectiveness and Safety of Aspirin Plus Hirudin in the Secondary Prevention of Cardioembolic Stroke|
|Study Start Date :||June 2014|
|Estimated Primary Completion Date :||December 2016|
|Estimated Study Completion Date :||October 2018|
Experimental: aspirin plus hirudin
14 days after stroke occurred, the experimental group gives hirudin two tables three times a day and aspirin 100mg, once daily.
Drug: aspirin plus hirudin
hirudin two tables, three times a day and aspirin 100mg, once daily.
Active Comparator: Warfarin
14 days after stroke occurred,the control group gives an initial dose of 1.5mg,once daily. 3 days later,we check the international normalized ratio(INR) values and adjust the warfarin dose make INR between 2-3 steady.Then, we maintain this warfarin dose.
An initial dose of Warfarin is 1.5mg,once daily. 3 days later,we check the international normalized ratio(INR) values and adjust the warfarin dose make INR between 2-3 steady.Then, we maintain this warfarin dose.

- Other ischemic cerebrovascular disease [ Time Frame: one year after onset ]The occurrence of ischemic cerebrovascular disease except cardioembolic stroke
- Safety [ Time Frame: one year after onset ]Intracranial hemorrhage and other bleeding events, any death and other serious adverse events causes
