Coumadin-Aspirin-or PFO closure to prevent stroke?

What’s  the best choice??

David P Dansereau for

I know I have my own opinions and if you’ve read my stroke story you know how I feel about this topic.  Anyway, I found a great presentation recently on  the “Evidence base for PFO closure” by Dr.  Ted Feldman  PDec8Feldman1510 but have been a bit slow at posting lately.

Here’s the link to the presentation which reviews the use of coumadin, aspirin therapy or PFO closure for stroke prevention

  1. Hi David,

    Have you heard of anyone having bruising over the heart area a few days/week following a PFO closure through a cardiac cath? I see a bunch of references about bruising at the groin site, but not in the chest area. Any input would be greatly appreciated. Thanks 🙂
