PFO Closure
I recently had a TIA and have been diagnosed with a large PFO and an ASA via an echo w/ bubble study.  My Neurologist has put me on Coumadin but I want the PFO closed instead.  What are my options?  Is there some criteria I need to meet before closure is an option?

You should see an interventional cardiologist who can close the defect.  However there is no scientific data that closure is superior to medical management.  There are trials ongoing that are trying to answer this question.
