Influence of PFO Anatomy on Successful Transcatheter Closure

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Patent foramen ovale (PFO) is considered a risk factor for serious clinical syndromes, the most important of which is cryptogenic stroke in the setting of paradoxic embolism. The safety and feasibility of transcatheter PFO closure have been addressed in several studies; this procedure is performed worldwide with excellent results. Variations in the atrial septal configuration and PFO are frequent and have an impact on the technical aspects and success in transcatheter PFO closure. To minimize the rate of complications of percutaneous closure of PFO, patients must be carefully selected on the basis of morphology and location of the interatrial defect.
