Abstract

Patent foramen ovale and atrial septal aneurysm are associated with an increased risk of cryptogenic stroke and recurrent thromboembolic events. Percutaneous closure is a therapeutic option to medical therapy and surgical closure. We present the first case of endocarditis associated with a CardioSEAL device closing a patent foramen ovale.
