Elimination of the left atrial appendage in the prevention of thromboembolic events in patients with atrial fibrillation.

Summary of "Elimination of the left atrial appendage in the prevention of thromboembolic events in patients with atrial fibrillation."

Atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most common cardiac arrhythmia in the adult population. Thromboembolic events are one of the reson of increased mortality in this group of patients. Oral anticoagulation therapy significantly reduces the risk of complications, however every tenth patient has contraindications to this treatment. Percutaneous left atrial appendage occlusion (LAAO) is effective, non-pharmacological method of treatment through elimination the source of thromi. This procedure is dedicated to patients with high risk of thromboembolism events and contraindications to anticoagulation.

A morpholine and thiophene derivative that functions as a FACTOR XA INHIBITOR and is used in the treatment and prevention of DEEP-VEIN THROMBOSIS and PULMONARY EMBOLISM. It is also used for the prevention of STROKE and systemic embolization in patients with non-valvular ATRIAL FIBRILLATION, and for the prevention of atherothrombotic events in patients after an ACUTE CORONARY SYNDROME.

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.

Rapid, irregular atrial contractions caused by a block of electrical impulse conduction in the right atrium and a reentrant wave front traveling up the inter-atrial septum and down the right atrial free wall or vice versa. Unlike ATRIAL FIBRILLATION which is caused by abnormal impulse generation, typical atrial flutter is caused by abnormal impulse conduction. As in atrial fibrillation, patients with atrial flutter cannot effectively pump blood into the lower chambers of the heart (HEART VENTRICLES).
