A 58-year-old male presented with a history of two prior transient ischaemic attacks and was found to have a patent foramen ovale (PFO) in the absence of atrial fibrillation or relevant carotid atheromatosis. PFO closure was deferred at this stage due to the lack of clinical evidence. Three years later the patient was re-admitted after a major stroke with residual symptoms and finally underwent PFO closure in a minimally invasive procedure using an Amplatzer PFO Occluder.
