Another hole-in-the-heart survivor

Another story about the closing of a patent foramen ovale - a hole between the two upper heart chambers - for a stroke survivor, increasing the chances that it won't happen again.

Green River Heart Institute of Owensboro, Ky., posted this story the other day. Interesting read for fellow survivors.

"I praise the Lord that He sent me to Dr. Mathew," the article quotes the survivor. Dr. Roshan Mathew was the cardiologist who sealed the hole via catheterization.
