AB  - RATIONALE: Currently available data do not provide definitive evidence on the
      comparative benefits of closure of patent foramen ovale, oral anticoagulants and 
      antiplatelet therapy in patients with patent foramen ovale-associated cryptogenic
      stroke AIM: To assess whether transcatheter patent foramen ovale closure plus
      antiplatelet therapy is superior to antiplatelet therapy alone and whether oral
      anticoagulant therapy is superior to antiplatelet therapy, for secondary stroke
      prevention in patients aged 16 to 60 years with a large patent foramen ovale or a
      patent foramen ovale associated with an atrial septal aneurysm, and an otherwise 
      unexplained ischaemic stroke or retinal ischaemia. SAMPLE SIZE: Six hundred and
      sixty-four patients were included in the study. METHODS AND DESIGN: CLOSE is an
      academic-driven, multicentre, randomized, open-label, three-group, superiority
      trial with blinded adjudication of outcome events. The trial has been registered 
      with Clinical Trials Register (Clinicaltrials.gov, NCT00562289). Patient
      recruitment started in December 2007. Patient follow-up will continue until
      December 2016. Expected mean follow-up = 5.6 years. STUDY OUTCOMES: The primary
      efficacy outcome is the occurrence of fatal or nonfatal stroke. Safety outcomes
      include fatal, life-threatening or major procedure- or device-related
      complications and fatal, life-threatening or major haemorrhagic complications.
      DISCUSSION: CLOSE is the first specifically designed trial to assess the
      superiority of patent foramen ovale closure over antiplatelet therapy alone and
      the superiority of oral anticoagulants over antiplatelet therapy to prevent
      stroke recurrence in patients with patent foramen ovale-associated cryptogenic
      stroke.
