Left Atrial Appendage Closure: Mechanical Approaches to by Jacqueline Saw, Saibal Kar, Matthew J. Price

By Jacqueline Saw, Saibal Kar, Matthew J. Price

Percutaneous left atrial appendage (LAA) closure is an rising know-how for thromboembolic prevention in sufferers with atrial traumatic inflammation (AF). the 1st human implantation of an LAA machine happened in 2001, and because then 4 units have bought CE mark approval. those units are being customary in Europe for LAA closure in sufferers who're negative applicants for long term oral anticoagulation. within the US, the WATCHMAN machine (Boston medical) is expected to obtain FDA approval imminently for AF sufferers who're warfarin-eligible. This approval is projected to noticeably extend the indicators for LAA closures around the world. hence, the amount of strategies is predicted to increase. This e-book discusses the epidemiology of AF as a reason behind stroke; using LAA closure cut back thromboembolism with AF; early surgical ways and novel surgical units for LAA closure; and present percutaneous techniques and units on hand for LAA closure. The emphasis of this ebook is on percutaneous technical methods and modern trial effects at the best units (PLAATO, WATCHMAN, Amplatzer Cardiac Plug, and LARIAT). It additionally experiences unapproved units in improvement, in either scientific and pre-clinical phases.
