Group/Cohort Intervention/treatment
ischemic stroke patients
all patient admitted with acute ischemic stroke either their ECG was AF or sinus rythm
Device: echocardiography
echocardiography for left atrial diameter, size ,Ejection Fraction Holter for detection of paroxusmal AF
Other Name: holter




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Percentage of patients with AF admitted with acute cerebrovascular stroke at Assuit University. [ Time Frame: 1 year ]
    study the Percentage of patients with AF admitted with acute cerebrovascular stroke at Assuit University whatever those patients have manifest atrial fibrillation or go into attacks of paroxysmal atrial fibrillation by the use of echocardiography for measurement of left atrial diameter and size and also by the use of Holter to identify any any attacks of paroxysmal atrial fibrillation


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. correlation between AF and severity of stroke at admission and discharge. [ Time Frame: 1 year ]
    relation between presence of AF and severity of stroke by the use of NIH Stroke Score and MRS score at time of admission and discharge.

  2. The role of anti coagulants in decreasing risk of ischemic cerebrovascular stroke in patients who are known to have Atrial Fibrillation and have been already anticoagulated [ Time Frame: 1 year ]
    if the anticoagulant intake decrease stroke severity in patients who are already taking anticoagulants by the use of NIH Stroke Score and MRS score at time of admission and discharge
