Description

Percutaneous Patent Foramen Ovale Closure for Stroke, Myocardial Infarction, Peripheral Embolism, Migraine, and Hypoxemia is a complete reference covering the association between Patent Foramen Ovale (PFO) and numerous clinical conditions. It provides a background on the topic of PFO including embryology, anatomy and physiology. It fully examines the diagnosis and imaging assessment of PFO and discusses the data linking PFO to various clinical conditions including stroke, myocardial infarction, peripheral embolism, migraine, hypoxemia, decompression sickness, Raynaud’s phenomenon and vasospasm. It includes perspectives that focus on future outlooks on PFO closure and where the field is headed in terms of PFO closure indications. It is the perfect reference book for cardiology researchers, cardiologists, interventional cardiologists, general practitioners and medical professionals that are interested in current safety and technical aspects of the field and are interested in the future outlooks on PFO closure.

Key Features

  • Explains the association between PFO and related clinical conditions including stroke, myocardial infarction, peripheral embolism, migraine, and hypoxemia
  • 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 for closure
  • Offers future outlooks on PFO closure and where the future is headed in terms of PFO closure indications

Readership

Cardiology researchers, cardiologists, general practitioners and medical professionals that are interested in current technical aspects of the field and in the future outlooks on PFO closure
