Dr Malik does a live PFO closure. A PFO or patent Foramen Ovale, is a flap in the heart that is needed in the womb, but serves no purpose in the adult. It can in rare cases be associated with stroke. Closing the PFO with an umbrella device leads to a much reduced chance of recurrent stroke. Dr Malik is a leading expert in the procedure, and as in this video, often demonstrates his techniques to other physicians. He works in London at Hammersmith Hospital, and OneWelbeck Heart Health.
