Percutaneous left atrial appendage closure (LAAC) is an alternative treatment in atrial fibrillation patients with contraindication to oral anticoagulation. Still, patient selection criteria for LAAC are debated.

Percutaneous left atrial appendage closure (p-LAAC) emerged as an option for stroke prevention in atrial fibrillation (AF) patients' ineligible for long-term anticoagulation.Real-world data on its in-...
Percutaneous Left Atrial Appendage Closure, A Safe Alternative To Anticoagulation For Patients With Non-Valvular Atrial Fibrillation And End-Stage Renal Disease On Hemodialysis: A Single Center Experience.
The evidence about the effectiveness and safety of oral anticoagulation in patients on hemodialysis is conflicting and scarce. Percutaneous left atrial appendage occlusion (LAAO) has demonstrated to b...
Peri-device leaks and device thrombi are assumed to lead to ischemic events after percutaneous left atrial appendage occlusion (LAAO). While these device related complications are well assessed until ...
We present a case report of a 79-year-old woman with permanent atrial fibrillation and Osler-Weber-Rendu disease who underwent percutaneous closure of left atrial appendage. The patient had a history ...
Congenital absence of left atrial appendage (LAA) is an extremely rare condition and is usually diagnosed incidentally in imaging intended for other purposes. Herein, we report a rare case of absent l...
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 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...
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 study cohort will consist of up to 50 patients who are candidates for Left Atrial Appendage (LAA) closure in whom oral anticoagulation is contraindicated. Subjects evaluated for left ...
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).
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).
