    Many lines of research have suggested a relationship between migraine with aura (MA) and patent foramen ovale. Right-to-left shunt (RLS) of blood might explain both the occurrence of MA attacks, as well as the increased risk of ischaemic stroke in these patients. We evaluated the prevalence and...
