Percutaneous left atrial appendage (LAA) closure using the WATCHMAN device is a novel option for prevention of stroke associated with atrial fibrillation. However, device-related thrombus (DRT) formation is a concern after WATCHMAN implantation and the predictors of DRT still remain unclear. We aimed to clarify the predictors of DRT after WATCHMAN implantation by analyzing 78 patients (50 males, 72 ± 8 years, average CHA2DS2-VASc score of 4.3 + 1.8) who had undergone WATCHMAN implantation. WATCHMAN was successfully implanted in all patients and four (5%) developed DRT...

More than 2.3 millions adults in the United States have atrial fibrillation (AF), which exposes them to a 5- fold increased risk of stroke. The left atrial appendage (LAA) appears to be the source of thrombus formation in the vast majority of these patients. Anticoagulation significantly reduces the risk of stroke, but often we encounter patients who have absolute or relative contraindication to anticoagulation. Percutaneous LAA exclusion offers an alternative to anticoagulation to decrease the risk of stroke...

Percutaneous left atrial appendage closure is an alternative treatment for stroke and systemic thromboembolism risk reduction in non-valvular atrial fibrillation (AF). However, the neurohormonal impact of epicardial exclusion of the left atrial appendage (LAA) with the LARIAT procedure is unknown. Evaluation of changes in atrial natriuretic peptide (ANP) and brain natriuretic peptide (BNP) levels in AF patients underwent percutaneous LAA suture ligation. Sixty six patients underwent successfully percutaneous LAA suture ligation using LARIAT device...

INTRODUCTION: Left atrial appendage (LAA) closure has become of major interest for patients with atrial fibrillation intolerant to oral anticoagulation therapy (OAC). Patients with a contraindication to both OAC and antiplatelet therapy are not eligible for percutaneous LAA closure. We aimed to find an alternative treatment for these specific patients. METHODS: From March 2014 until December 2015 five patients were referred for percutaneous LAA closure. Alternative treatment was necessary due to an absolute contraindication to OAC and antiplatelet therapy (n = 4) or after previous failed percutaneous device implantation (n = 1)...

Percutaneous left atrial appendage (LAA) closure is currently utilized for the prophylaxis of thromboembolic cerebrovascular accidents in patients with non-valvular atrial fibrillation. The presence of LAA thrombus is usually considered a contraindication for the procedure, since there is a high risk of thrombus embolization. While reports in the literature have shown the feasibility of LAA closure in the presence of LAA thrombus with certain cerebral embolic protection devices, we present the first-in-man LAA closure of a patient with LAA thrombus using the TriGuard Embolic Protection Device...

BACKGROUND A free-floating ball thrombus in the left atrium is a rare clinical condition. However, the diagnosis of this condition has been facilitated by the advent and development of echocardiography and multi-detector row computed tomography (MDCT) and several cases have been reported. CASE REPORT We report a case of a 75-year-old woman who had recurrent giant spherical thrombi in the left atrium. She was diagnosed with chronic atrial fibrillation at 52 years of age. A pacemaker implantation was performed at 54 years of age because of a complete atrioventricular block; and mitral valve replacement was performed for severe mitral regurgitation at 62 years of age...

Ischemic stroke is a common complication of atrial fibrillation. Currently, oral anticoagulant drugs are the most commonly used method of stroke prevention. Left atrial appendage occlusion is thought to be the main source of thrombi in patients with AF. Percutaneous left atrial appendage is a valuable therapeutic option for selected high-risk patients with AF and contraindications for oral anticoagulation therapy. While complete closure of the left atrial appendage is the goal of a device implantation the variable nature of the left atrial appendage anatomy makes this goal difficult to achieve...

Left atrial appendage closure (LAAC) is a promising site-directed therapy for stroke prevention in patients with non-valvular atrial fibrillation (AF) who are ineligible or contraindicated for long-term oral anticoagulation. A variety of LAAC modalities are available, including percutaneous endocardial occluder devices such as WATCHMAN(TM) (Boston Scientific Corp., Marlborough, MA, USA), and an ever-increasing body of evidence is helping to define the optimal use of each technique. Similarly increased experience with LAAC has revealed challenges such as device-related thrombi and peri-device leaks for which the long-term significance and appropriate management are areas of active investigation...
