Patent Foramen Ovale (PFO) Closure for Stroke, Myocardial Infarction, Peripheral Embolism, Migraine, and Hypoxemia is a complete reference covering the association between PFO and numerous medical conditions. It provides a background on the topic including embryology, anatomy, and physiology. This book fully examines the diagnosis and imaging assessment of PFO and discusses the data linking PFO to various clinical pathologies. It details technical aspects of PFO closure and includes perspectives on future outlooks and where the field is headed in terms of device closure indications. This is a complete reference book for cardiologists, interventional cardiologists, neurologists, pulmonologists, general practitioners, medical professionals, and researchers who are interested in PFO-associated pathologies, technical aspects, safety, and future outlooks of PFO device closure.
Explains the association between PFO and related clinical conditions including stroke, myocardial infarction, peripheral embolism, migraine, hypoxemia, decompression sickness, Raynaud’s phenomenon, and vasospasm
Provides an in-depth analysis of the evidence behind PFO closure for various clinical conditions
Expounds on the technical aspects of PFO closure including differences between devices and techniques
Offers future outlooks on PFO closure and where the field is headed in terms of PFO closure indications
