Project

Cost effectiveness, efficacy and safety of PFO closure as compared to medical management for patients with cryptogenic ischaemic stroke - project description

Published Updated

This project will assess the cost-effectiveness, effectiveness and organisational consequences of this method.


Summary

In patients with an unexplained ischaemic stroke, the underlying cause is sometimes a hole in the heart (patent foramen ovale; PFO). Closure of PFO may be more effective in preventing new ischaemic strokes than medical management. This project will assess the cost-effectiveness, effectiveness and organisational consequences of this method.
