The PFO may be implicated in the pathogenesis of several medical conditions, such as cryptogenic stroke, cryptogenic left circulation thromboembolism, migraine syndromes, decompression sickness. The most frequent indication for PFO closure remains PFO-associated left circulation thromboembolism....
