Left Atrial Enlargement Could Be Detected on Extended Computed Tomography Angiography —Reply
In Reply We agree with Popkirov that left atrial volume is a better marker of incident atrial fibrillation than atrial diameter; however, we did not have these data available at all of the sites participating in the New Approach Rivaroxaban Inhibition of Factor Xa in a Global Trial Versus ASA to Prevent Embolism in Embolic Stroke of Undetermined Source (NAVIGATE-ESUS) trial. Recently completed and ongoing studies will help determine if our observation has a clinical role and may provide additional data on left atrial size and function. Once all of these data are available, guidelines committees will likely make recommendat...

Additional Factors in Considering Patent Foramen Ovale Closure to Prevent Recurrent Ischemic Stroke
To the Editor In his Viewpoint, Kamel addresses some issues with the randomized clinical trials (RCTs) of patent foramen ovale (PFO) closure for preventing recurrent stroke and urges a judicious and evidence-based approach for patient selection. I would like to point out additional factors that further demonstrate need for extreme caution in selecting patients to undergo this procedure.

Additional Factors in Considering Patent Foramen Ovale Closure to Prevent Recurrent Ischemic Stroke —Reply
In Reply Powers raises several important issues that I did not address in detail in my Viewpoint about managing patent foramen ovale in patients with ischemic stroke. These additional points further highlight that many patients who are fully informed about the available data will reasonably choose medical therapy rather than patent foramen ovale closure.

Evidence-Based Management of Patent Foramen Ovale in Patients With Ischemic Stroke
This Viewpoint describes the results of 5 randomized clinical trials of devices that occlude patent foramen ovale, discusses the cerebrovascular outcomes associated with treatment, and outlines judicious use of closure procedures.

Migraine and the Risk of Carotid Artery Dissection
Stroke incidence is increasing among patients aged 40 to 60 years —faster than in older age cohorts. Preliminary evidence suggests that ischemic stroke—not hemorrhage or subarachnoid hemorrhage—accounts for the increase. Many speculate that increasing incidences of classic vascular risk factors among young patients contribute to the increased incidence of st roke. Certainly, we are all aware of the obesity epidemic and continued prevalence of smoking, leading to premature atherosclerosis. Furthermore, equally relevant causes of stroke in the young include migraine, drug abuse, cervical arterial dissections, patent fo...
