CSI Focus PFO

Dear Colleagues,

Patent foramen ovale (PFO) is a common find that has been reported in 10% to 35% of the population. It can cause paradoxical embolism, stroke, transient ischemic attacks and peripheral embolism. Percutaneous closure was introduced to prevent recurrent stroke in high-risk patients. Until 2017, evidence and guideline recommendations did not support the routine use of PFO closure. In late 2017 the results of 2 new randomized trials – CLOSE and REDUCE as well as a long-term analysis of the RESPECT trial changed the landscape of evidence and will likely trigger further development, techniques and implementation worldwide.


At CSI Focus PFO you will learn everything you need to know about this field including indication, imaging, device selection, technique and complication management. Live cases will be an important part of this learning experience. We look forward to seeing you at CSI Focus PFO in Frankfurt on June 27, and hope you will stay on for the main scientific program June 28-30 featuring a wide array of topics in the field of congenital, structural and valvar heart disease interventions.


Horst Sievert, Mario Carminati, Neil Wilson, Shakeel A. Qureshi
