Assessment of the prevalence of deep vein thrombosis in the acute phase of stroke in patients whose probable aetiology is a patent foramen ovale (PFO).

Evaluation of the prevalence of deep vein thrombosis in the acute phase of stroke in patients whose probable etiology is a patent foramen ovale (PFO).

Summary :
Introduction: The patent foramen oval (PFO) is identified as prevalent in the occurrence of ischemic events in young subjects. The coexistence of a deep vein thrombosis (DVT) at the time of diagnosis of the PFO is suggested by the literature through a paradoxical embolism mechanism. Objective: Our objective was to evaluate the prevalence of DVT in patients admitted to the acute phase of management of constituted or transient ischaemic attack whose probable origin was a PFO in a neurovascular unit (NVU).
