Obstructive sleep apnea and patent foramen ovale

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Epidemiological data implicate obstructive sleep apnea as an independent contributor to the occurrence of stroke. One of the potential patho-physiological links implicates paradoxical embolism in patients with patent foramen ovale. This chapter discusses the hemodynamics of obstructive sleep apnea relevant to the patients with patent foramen ovale, and their connection to the theory of paradoxical embolism.
