Significant succinate signature in metabolic profiling following cardioembolic stroke

Takeaway

  • Metabolic profile characterization following cardioembolic stroke (CES) revealed that succinate was associated CES, atrial dysfunction, and increased risk of stroke recurrence.

Why this matters ?

  • Metabolic profiling in CES patients is expected to advance understanding of the potential role of altered energy utilization in atrial dysfunction and CES.
