COCLUSION. Thanks Dr Anand for the correct answer. PFO with large intracardiac shunt. A patent foramen ovale is most likely to he a causal of stroke in young patients with cryogenic stroke,embolus appearing brain infarct,no vascular comorbidities, and a large patient foramen ovale with substantial right - to - left shunting.

Size of pfo Right to left shunt

I agree

Thank you mam
