A cryptogenic stroke (CS) is technically defined as cerebral ischemia (stroke) of obscure or unknown origin. This is basically a fancy way of saying that a patient has had a stroke, yet doctors have not determined a cause. In this post I discuss the relationship between a cryptogenic stroke and atrial fibrillation.
In this article I will discuss the watchman procedure for patients with atrial fibrillation, and discuss who should be candidates for this procedure.
If you are the caregiver or loved one of someone dealing with a complicated medical condition, such as atrial fibrillation, this post is for you.
First, I would like to begin by saying, “Thank you”. I understand that navigating this condition as a caregiver can often be stressful and demanding.
Now, I’d like to offer you some tips for caring for someone with atrial fibrillation, so you can better understand the condition and what you may need to do if complications arise.
Going to the doctor once you’ve received any kind of diagnosis can be scary, confusing and completely overwhelming. Many patients are afraid to voice their confusion or simply don’t know what to ask their doctor in the first place.
