Abstract

Introduction: Stroke is the second most cause of death worldwide after coronary artery disease. Left-sided atrial septal pouch (LASP) is associated with potential cardioembolic stroke. This study determines the association between LASP and cryptogenic stroke (CS) using cardiac multi-detector computed tomography (cMDCT) angiograms.
