|Title:||Diving and percutaneous closure of persistent (patent) foramen ovale||Authors:||Martínez Quintana, Efrén
|UNESCO Clasification:||32 Ciencias médicas||Issue Date:||2015||Publisher:||1833-3516||Journal:||Diving and Hyperbaric Medicine||Abstract:||Paradoxical arterial gas embolism after diving, in patients with a persistent foramen ovale (PFO) is a potentially catastrophic complication that occurs when gas bubbles occlude blood flow at cardiac or cerebral level. Because the relationship between PFO and decompression illness is currently not clear, we should ensure that patients understand the uncertainties about the efficacy of transcatheter closure of a PFO and the possibility of complications if closure is decided upon. We report a female diver who developed temporary bradycardia, hypotension and evidence of myocardial ischaemia during a closure procedure.||URI:||http://hdl.handle.net/10553/43662||ISSN:||1833-3516||Source:||Diving and Hyperbaric Medicine [ISSN 1833-3516] v. 45, p. 126-128|
