The most important approaches to prevent cerebral ischemia by catheter technique are patent foramen ovale (PFO) closure in patients with a history of cryptogenic stroke and left atrial appendage (LAA) occlusion in atrial fibrillation (AF) patients. Over the past years, several new devices have been developed for these procedures. Results of randomized trials comparing device therapy, antiplatelet, or anticoagulation therapy are still not available. However, several nonrandomized studies have shown promising results. This article gives a review on the current results and techniques of the most commonly used devices as well as on new developments and approaches to catheter-based stroke prevention.
