The aim of this study was to investigate the value of real time three-dimensional transesophageal echocardiography (RT3DTEE) in percutaneous closure of the left atrial appendage (LAAC). In addition, this study also explored the change in the size of the left atrial appendage (LAA) from 24 hours before the operation to just before implantation during the operation.

Name: Echocardiography (Mount Kisco, N.Y.)
In the local anesthesia state, left atrial appendage (LAA) closure cannot be accomplished under the real-time guidance of conventional transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) due to it inducing signifi...
Percutaneous left atrial appendage (LAA) closure (placement of an occluder to close the appendage) is a novel procedure for stroke prevention in patients suffering from atrial fibrillation. The closur...
We sought to provide a practical educational tool for the utilization of intracardiac echography (ICE) in the left atrium for the percutaneous closure of the left atrial appendage (LAA).
Percutaneous closure of the left atrial appendage (LAA) is a promising therapy in patients with atrial fibrillation with high risk for stroke and contraindication for oral anticoagulation (OAC). Intra...
There are no recommendations regarding how to treat cardioembolic recurrent strokes when patients are well anticoagulated. We evaluated the safety and efficacy of combining oral anticoagulation (OAC) ...
The purpose of the study is to demonstrate the safety and the rate of closure of the Ultrasept Left Atrial Appendage (LAA) Closure System for the percutaneous occlusion of the left atrial ...
The objective of Left atrial appendage closure compared to standard antiplatelet therapy in patients with AF who underwent percutaneous coronary intervention (LLA-PCI) study is to evaluate...
Patients with atrial fibrillation are exposed to a high risk of thrombus in the left atrium that can induce cerebral vascular events or systemic embolisms. This justifies the prescription ...
The aim of the study LA-EU-01 was to examine the safety and the feasibility of the LAmbreTM Left Atrial Appendage Closure System in patients with non-valvular paroxymal, persistent or perm...
Although the clinical impact of left atrial appendage (LAA) leaks still requires confirmation, the open pouch with residual flow resulting from incomplete LAA closure may promote blood sta...
Ear-shaped appendage of either atrium of the heart. (Dorland, 28th ed)
Impaired or delayed impulse conduction between the right and left HEART ATRIA. Advanced interatrial blocks are often associated with arrhythmias (e.g., ATRIAL FLUTTER; and ATRIAL FIBRILLATION), direct conduction block via the Bachmann's bundle and concomitant left atrial enlargement. Syndrome of advanced interatrial block associated with SUPRAVENTRICULAR TACHYCARDIA is referred to as Bayes syndrome.
Ultrasonography applying the Doppler effect combined with real-time imaging. The real-time image is created by rapid movement of the ultrasound beam. A powerful advantage of this technique is the ability to estimate the velocity of flow from the Doppler shift frequency.
The hemodynamic and electrophysiological action of the LEFT ATRIUM.
The pressure within the CARDIAC ATRIUM. It can be measured directly by using a pressure catheter (see HEART CATHETERIZATION). It can be also estimated using various imaging techniques or other pressure readings such as PULMONARY CAPILLARY WEDGE PRESSURE (an estimate of left atrial pressure) and CENTRAL VENOUS PRESSURE (an estimate of right atrial pressure).
Cardiology is a specialty of internal medicine. Cardiac electrophysiology : Study of the electrical properties and conduction diseases of the heart. Echocardiography : The use of ultrasound to study the mechanical function/physics of the h...
