Permeable ovale foramen

E Boue, A Gervaise, X Demaison
A man presents an atypical neurological disorder. The diagnosis of aortic dissection is evoked with anisotension, but it consists in a paradoxical embolism in the presence of a permeable foramen oval since he presents with a proximal pulmonary embolus and a thrombus in the humeral artery.

The association of cerebral ischemic attack with patent foramen ovale has not been extensively studied, and frequently the site of origin of embolism is not detected despite routine studies. We present the case of a young patient with ischemic stroke and permeable oval foramen in the context of May Thurner syndrome. The May Thurner syndrome is an entity scarcely studied in the medical literature and it has also been infrequently related to ischemic vascular cerebral accident, but in patients with permeable oval foramen without evidence of the emboligen source, it is interesting to rule it out as a cause of paradoxical embolism...

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: We hypothesized that formation of left atrial appendage (LAA) thrombi of unknown origin is associated with altered fibrin clot properties and blood hypercoagulability. METHODS: In a case-control study, we investigated 32 patients with a history of LAA thrombus after successful anticoagulant treatment versus 32 control subjects matched for age, sex, and diabetes mellitus. All subjects had previous ischemic stroke, transient ischemic attack, or migraine associated with patent foramen ovale...

OBJECTIVES. A training model was designed for learners and young physicians to polish their skills in clinical practices of pinpointing and puncturing trigeminal ganglion. METHODS. A head model, on both cheeks of which the deep soft tissue was replaced by stuffed organosilicone and sponge while the superficial soft tissue, skin and the trigeminal ganglion were made of organic silicon rubber for an appearance of real human being, was made from a dried skull specimen and epoxy resin. Two physicians who had experiences in puncturing foramen ovale and trigeminal ganglion were selected to test the model, mainly for its appearance, X-ray permeability, handling of the puncture, and closure of the puncture sites...

Intracardiac echocardiography (ICE) is a relatively new method of ultrasound images useful during cardiac percutaneous interventional procedures. The first human experience with this method was published in 2000 and, since then, several original trials have enrolled this useful method, proving similar and more useful than transesophageal echocardiography in percutaneous treatment of several congenital cardiopathies, like interatrial communication, permeable oval foramen, mitral stenosis, and atrial fibrillation ablation...

SCUBA diving is associated with generation of gas emboli due to gas release from the supersaturated tissues during decompression. Gas emboli arise mostly on the venous side of circulation, and they are usually eliminated as they pass through the lung vessels. Arterialization of venous gas emboli (VGE) is seldom reported, and it is potentially related to neurological damage and development of decompression sickness. The goal of the present study was to evaluate the generation of VGE in a group of divers using a mixture of compressed oxygen, helium, and nitrogen (trimix) and to probe for their potential appearance in arterial circulation...

Approximately two billion people worldwide are chronically infected with T. gondii and yet with largely unknown consequences. On the other hand, several authors reported an association between migraine and patent foramen ovale (PFO), and different types of headaches, including migraine, may be precipitated by various diseased states or medications associated with marked immune irregularities, which sometimes cause reactivation of latent cerebral toxoplasmosis (CT). Recently, in a group of 104 subjects with migraine, 46 individuals (44...

Conventional therapies for ischemic stroke include thrombolytic therapy, prevention of inappropriate coagulation and thrombosis, and surgery to repair vascular abnormalities. Over 10 years have passed since the US Food and Drug Administration approved intravenous tissue plasminogen activator for use in acute stroke patients, but most major clinical trials have failed during the last 2 decades, including large clinical trials for secondary prevention and neuroprotection. These results suggest the presence of heterogeneity among stroke patients...

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: We tested the hypothesis that fibrin structure/function is unfavorably altered in patients with cryptogenic ischemic stroke. METHODS: Ex vivo plasma fibrin clot permeability, turbidimetry, and efficiency of fibrinolysis were determined in 89 patients with patent foramen ovale (PFO) and a history of first-ever stroke, 58 patients with first-ever stroke and no PFO, and 120 healthy controls. RESULTS: Stroke patients, evaluated 3 to 19 months after the event, and controls did not differ with regard to age, sex, smoking, and fibrinogen...

OBJECTIVE: Paradoxical gas embolism through right-to-left (R/L) shunts is considered as a potential cause of certain types of decompression sickness. AIM: To assess whether 4 months of repetitive diving and strenuous exercises would lead to an increased prevalence of R/L shunting in a group of military divers. METHODS: Using a standardised contrast-enhanced transcranial Doppler technique, 17 divers were re-examined for the presence of a R/L shunt 4 months after their initial examinations...

A patent foramen ovale is almost physiological (15% of the population) but can be associated with some pathological situations in which its closure can be considered. The only medical indication currently accepted is a right-left shunt without elevation of the right pulmonary pressure, whose most famous pattern is the rare platypnea-orthodeoxie syndrome. PFO may be responsible for diving decompression accidents. Before taking the decision of closing a PFO, each situation must be discussed on a case to case basis...

The presented case is of a young male (aged 19 yrs) with a pectus excavatum who showed significant exercise intolerance, despite normal pulmonary function at rest, including carbon monoxide diffusing capacity. Clinical exercise testing led to a strong suspicion of a right-to-left shunt due to an abnormally wide alveolo-arterial oxygen gradient (26.4 kPa) at peak oxygen uptake, with severe arterial hypoxaemia (arterial oxygen tension 12.54 kPa). A right-to-left shunt was confirmed by transoesophageal echocardiography demonstrating a permeable foramen ovale, despite normal right heart pressures...

A 38-year old male patient with no history of psychiatric illness developed a progressive psychotic disorder after bilateral (predominantly left) mesencephalo-thalamic cerebral ischaemia. The reason of the emergency hospitalization was the sudden onset of a confusional state, culminating in a fluctuating comatose status. The neurological examination found mild right hemiparesia, praxic disorders and reactive left mydriasis with paresia of the downward vertical stare, leading to the hospitalisation in the neurology department for suspicion of a cerebral vascular ischaemic accident...

INTRODUCTION AND OBJECTIVE: Patent foramen ovale has been associated with stroke in young patients with cryptogenic stroke. The purpose of this study is to examine the prevalence of patent foramen ovale in this group of patients, as well as their anatomical and functional characteristics by contrast echocardiography, trying to determine ictus risk markers in young patients with acute ischemic stroke. PATIENTS AND METHOD: Prospective study of 90 patients under the age of 50 who were hospitalised consecutively due to a clinical presentation suggestive of stroke...

The case of a female premature newborn is presented with a tumor in neck and severe perinatal asphyxia that required mechanical ventilation from birth; she died at 28 days dew to heart and renal failure. Surgical resection of cervical tumor was not possible due mechanical ventilation and persistent hemodynamic alteration. Autopsy revealed a mixed tumor of germinal cells, persistence of ductus arteriosus, permeable foramen ovale, congenital, hydrocephalus, dysgenetic corpus collosium, and four lobes in right lung...
