  • LAE is associated with anticoagulation failure in AF patients admitted with an ischemic stroke. This provides indirect evidence that LAE may portend failure of anticoagulation therapy in patients with AF; further studies are needed to delineate the significance of this association and improve stroke prevention strategies.
