Multicenter randomized study of anticoagulation guided by remote rhythm monitoring in patients with implantable cardioverter-defibrillator and CRT-D devices: Rationale, design, and clinical characteristics of the initially enrolled cohort The IMPACT study.
Atrial fibrillation and atrial flutter are common cardiac arrhythmias associated with an increased risk of stroke in patients with additional risk factors. Anticoagulation ameliorates stroke risk, but because these arrhythmias may occur intermittently without symptoms, initiation of prophylactic therapy is often delayed until electrocardiographic documentation is obtained.
