Pulmonary Embolism and Stroke in Patient With Patent Foramen Ovale
Is There a Link Between Venous Thromboembolism and Stroke in Patient With Patent Foramen Ovale ? Research for Stroke in Hospitalized Patients With Pulmonary Embolism.

The cause of ischemic stroke remains frequently unknown. In patients with patent foramen ovale (PFO), the link between PFO and Stroke is unclear. The investigators hypothesize that the main mechanism is paradoxical embolism and decided to look for clinically apparent and silent cerebral embolism in patients with a recent pulmonary embolism.
