Patent foramen ovale in patients with migraine headache. Should it be closed?
MedLine Citation:
PMID:  17372579     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
RESULTS: However, the only randomized, controlled trial finished to date analyzing the effect of PFO closure on migraine failed to reach its primary outcome of resolution of migraine following the intervention. The evidence of a benefit on migraine headache following PFO closure is not convincing, but certainly intriguing. With currently ongoing trials, more information related to this topic can be expected. In the meantime, the question whether we should close PFOs in patients with migraine headaches cannot be answered.
