The Amplatzer™ PFO Occluder is a device that can be placed in your heart to close the opening using a minimally invasive catheter-based PFO surgery technique. This device is specifically designed to stop blood flow through the PFO, thereby preventing stroke.

 

Medical Management

Blood thinning medications can be prescribed to prevent the blood clot from forming thereby reducing the risk of stroke. Aspirin is the recommended medication.
