Ischaemic strokes caused by atrial fibrillation tend to be more severe than other types of ischaemic stroke, as confirmed by a cross sectional study of more than 60 000 patients on the Austrian stroke registry between 2003 and 2016 (Stroke doi:10.1161/STROKEAHA.116.015900). What also emerged from this analysis was that women with atrial fibrillation have more severe strokes than men with the same condition.
