The diagnostic yield of implantable loop recorders in unexplained syncope: A systematic review and meta-analysis.
International Journal of Cardiology, 231, 170-176. Solbiati, M., Casazza, G., Dipaola, F., Barbic, F., Caldato, M., Montano, N., ... Costantino, G. (2017).
Conclusion: About half of unexplained syncope subjects implanted with an ILR were diagnosed, and around 50% of them had an arrhythmia. Life-threatening arrhythmias as well as ILR complications and death due to arrhythmic events were very rare.
Performance of an Implantable Cardiac Monitor to Detect Atrial Fibrillation: Results of the DETECT AF Study.
Journal of Cardiovascular Electrophysiology. . 10.1111/jce.13089. Nölker, Georg & Mayer, Julia & Boldt, Leif-Hendrik & Seidl, Karlheinz & Van Driel, Vincent & Massa, Thomas & Kollum, Marc & Brachmann, Johannes & Deneke, Thomas & Hindricks, Gerhard & Jung, Werner & J. Brunner, Kyle & Kraus, Stacia & Hummer, Alexander & Lewalter, Thorsten. (2016).

Cryptogenic Stroke and Underlying Atrial Fibrillation.
The New England Journal of Medicine, 370(26), 2478-2486. doi:10.1056/NEJMoa1313600. Sanna, T., M.D., Diener, H., M.D., Ph.D., Passman, R. S., M.D., M.S.C.E., Di Lazzaro, V., M.D., Bernstein, R. A., M.D., Ph.D., Morillo, C. A., M.D., ... Brachmann, J., M.D. (2014).
Conclusion: ECG monitoring with an ICM was superior to conventional follow-up for detecting atrial fibrillation after cryptogenic stroke.
