The International PFO Consortium is entering its 6th year! In the past year the consortium was joined by another center in Belgium - making it have 18 active centers. The study database is soon reaching one thousand enrolled patients. The ratio of closures versus medical treatments is currently 45/55. The study ends with the enrollment of 1500 patients or by the end of 2015.
In 2013, from January 31 to February 1, the PFO Consortium will present its preliminary results at the Swiss Stroke Trialists' Meeting in St. Gallen. In the upcoming summer the Consortium is planning an international stroke summit in Basel, Switzerland.
We wish to all our centers and our partners a successful year!
