When to close a patent foramen ovale.
Arch Dis Child 2008; 93(3):255-9AD

Abstract

Transcatheter closure of the patent foramen ovale was the most common interventional procedure performed in our adult congenital heart disease unit in 2006. Although the prevalence of patent foramen ovale is similar in children, closure is rarely performed in this group despite susceptibility to similar defect-related morbidity. In this review we question whether this should remain the case.
