This is a single arm, multi-center study to confirm the safety and effectiveness of the AMPLATZERTM PFO Occluder in the post approval setting




Subjects with a PFO who have had an ischemic stroke within the last 270 days, have undergone investigation by a neurologist to exclude known causes of ischemic stroke, and have therefore been determined to have had a cryptogenic stroke (i.e., stroke from an unknown cause) assessed by a neurologist within the last 270 days, with stroke defined as follows: acute focal neurological deficit, presumed to be due to focal ischemia, and either 1) symptoms persisting 24 hours or greater, or 2) symptoms persisting less than 24 hours but associated with MR or CT findings of a new, neuroanatomically relevant, cerebral infarct.
