OBJECTIVES We sought to evaluate the benefits on frequency and severity of migraine recurrence after patent foramen ovale (PFO) closure in patients with subclinical brain lesions at magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). BACKGROUND Migraine improvement has been reported after PFO closure in patients with cerebrovascular symptomatic events. Subclinical brain MRI lesions are detectable in patients with PFO and in migraineurs. METHODS A total of 82 patients with moderate/severe migraine, PFO, large… CONTINUE READING
