Other stroke interventions

Percutaneous treatment of conditions such as atrial septal defects (ASD) which create haemodynamic burden, or the closure of patent foramen ovale (PFO) which has been linked to ischaemic stroke as well as migraine, can have immediate and long-term beneficial effects. Learn more about the use of imaging, adjunctive pharmacotherapy, stents, devices and techniques as well as understanding vascular access and bleeding complications in the treatment of these and other conditions here...

Randomised Trials in percutaneous treatment for structural heart disease

On this page you will find a list of randomised trials in percutaneous treatment for structural heart disease, published in some of the world's top cardiology and interventional cardiology journals.

World Heart Day 2017: 29 September

Born in 2000, World Heart Day is an initiative of the World Heart Federation. All over the World – in nearly 100 countries - member organisations will set up thousands of educational activities and events in order everyone feels involved in protecting themselves from cardiovascular disease, the leading cause of death worldwide killing 17.5 million a year.

PFO closure reduces recurrent strokes – a therapeutic promise is finally kept

22 May 2017

In patients with a patent foramen ovale (PFO) and cryptogenic stroke, percutaneous closure of the PFO has long been postulated to reduce the rate of recurrent strokes. However, up until now, trial data has failed to convincingly deliver a message of benefit for such an approach. Although the wait has been long, two recently reported trials finally seem to deliver on the therapeutic promise of PFO closure.

EuroPCR 2017 Highlights: Interventions for Stroke

20 May 2017 - From EUROPCR 2017

Interventional treatment of stroke is the future! M. Roffi and Ö. Göktekin along with L. N. Hopkins, neurosurgeon, explain how interventional cardiologists can respond to this challenge. Robust data supporting mechanical treatment of acute stroke increases daily. Until recently we believed intervention worked only within a 6 hour window, but now, the newly released DAWN trial shows that patient selection, IV r-tPA + clot retrieval can have a positive benefit for up to 24 hours after a stroke. An army of interventionalists is needed to treat the millions of eligible patients!
