Sorry to bother you, but did he consult with a Neurologist and/or a cardiologist? Did they talk to you about the risk to do this at his age? How experienced was the doctor who did the procedure and how often with older patients?

Thank you for anything you can give me?

Not a bother. He was seen at the heart brain clinic at Mayo (monthly event) by a neurologist and interventional cardiologist ( Dr El Sabbagh). They decided that even with daily Eliquis he still had a high risk of another stroke with the open PFO and his Factor V liden. Procedure was done in late September of this year and no issues so far.

Also Dr El Sabbagh is very experienced and does this procedure regularly
