Official Title Prospective, Open-label, Multicenter, Non-randomized Investigation on Percutaneous Patent Foramen Ovale (PFO) Closure Using the Occlutech PFO Occluder to Prevent Recurrence of Stroke in Patients With Cryptogenic Stroke and High Risk PFO
Brief Summary Percutaneous transcatheter closure of a patent foramen ovale (PFO) to reduce the risk of recurrent ischemic stroke in patients who have had a cryptogenic stroke due to a presumed paradoxical embolism.
Detailed Description This study aims to investigate stroke recurrence rates after interventional PFO closure with an Occlutech PFO Occluder in patients who have experienced at least one ischemic cryptogenic stroke attributed to patent foramen ovale (PFO) who have high risk PFO, i.e. large PFO (≥2 mm), or PFO of any size and atrial septal aneurysm (ASA).
Study Type Observational

Time Perspective: Prospective
Target Follow-Up Duration Not Provided
Biospecimen Not Provided
Sampling Method Probability Sample
Study Population This study will enroll patients of either sex, aged ≥18 and ≤60 years, with at least one event of cryptogenic ischemic stroke in the last 6 months. Patients must have a high risk PFO indicated for device-assisted closure; either large PFO (≥2 mm), or PFO of any size and ASA.
Condition
  • Stroke
  • PFO - Patent Foramen Ovale
Intervention Device: Occlutech PFO Occluder
The Occlutech PFO Occluder is a medical device for transcatheter closure of PFO.

Eligibility Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Age ≥18 years and ≤60 years
  • At least one event of cryptogenic ischemic stroke in the last 6 months
  • Presence of a PFO indicated for device-assisted closure (in compliance with the Instruction for Use) confirmed by common practice procedures
  • A large PFO (maximum separation of the septum primum from the secundum) of ≥2 mm confirmed by common practice procedures, or an ASA defined by common practice procedures as septum primum excursion of ≥10 mm
  • Life expectancy of at least 1 year
  • Ability to speak fluently and to understand the language in which the study is being conducted
  • Written, informed consent by the patient for participation in the study and agreement to comply with the follow-up schedule

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Acute infection(s)
  • Known coagulation disorder
  • Allergies to nickel and/or titanium and/or nickel/titanium-related material, if not medically manageable
  • Inability to achieve adequate oral anticoagulation therapy and/or platelet inhibition post intervention
  • Intolerance to contrast agents, if not medically manageable
  • Participation in another clinical investigation <30 days before intended Occlutech PFO Occluder implantation procedure (note that in line with Medical Device Reporting, registries are not considered as clinical investigations)
  • Contraindication to use of trans-esophageal echocardiography (TEE) and/or use of general anesthetic
  • Eisenmenger Syndrome
  • Recent pelvic venous thrombosis
  • Myocardial infarction or coronary artery bypass surgery within the last 30 days
  • Atrial thrombus
  • Patients whose size or condition would cause them to be a poor candidate for cardiac catheterization (e.g. too small for echocardiography imaging probe, catheter size, vasculature size, active infection, body weight <8 kg)

The following exclusion criteria are at the discretion of the investigator:

  • Stroke of any other origin
  • Large artery atherosclerosis
  • Small vessel disease
  • Arterial dissection
  • Hypercoagulable disorder
  • Uncontrolled hypertension
  • Uncontrolled diabetes
  • Autoimmune disease
  • Evidence of drug or alcohol abuse
  • Chronic, persistent, or paroxysmal atrial fibrillation or atrial flutter
  • End-stage heart-, liver-, lung-, or kidney disease
  • Cardiac tumor
  • Endocarditis or septicemia
  • Severe valvular pathology
  • Any condition that, in the opinion of the investigator, might interfere with the implantation,might affect the patients' well-being thereafter or might interfere with the conduct of the study
