Reducing Recurrent Stroke Risk
Gore study highlights long-term safety and performance
A stroke is a significant medical event for anyone. But imagine if you didn’t know the cause. Around 25 percent of first-time ischemic strokes are of unknown origin. Up to half of these patients are later diagnosed with a heart defect called a patent foramen ovale (PFO). In March, The New England Journal of Medicine published the long-term results from a Gore sponsored study showing the role of our technology in repairing this defect and reducing recurrent stroke risk.
