CLINICAL INVESTIGATION OF THE LAMBRETM LEFT ATRIAL APPENDAGE CLOSURE SYSTEM

2017-04-21 07:08:22 | BioPortfolio

Summary

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 permanent atrial fibrillation, by using imaging approaches, i.e. combined trans-esophageal and transthoracic echocardiography.

The conducted LA-EU-01 study was a prospective, non-randomized, multi-center, open-label, non-comparative, interventional clinical investigation with the participation of two clinical centers in Germany and the inclusion of 61 subjects.

Participating subjects were patients with non-valvular paroxymal, persistent or permanent atrial fibrillation with long-term sustainability and scheduled for interventional closure of the left atrial appendage who could not be treated with anticoagulation.

After the procedure of implantation of the LAmbreTM Left Atrial Appendage Closure System, patients underwent a first follow up assessment prior to hospital discharge then at 30 days, 6 and 12 months.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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).

Long-term changes in the electrophysiological parameters and/or anatomical structures of the HEART ATRIA that result from prolonged changes in atrial rate, often associated with ATRIAL FIBRILLATION or long periods of intense EXERCISE.

A cardiotonic glycoside obtained mainly from Digitalis lanata; it consists of three sugars and the aglycone DIGOXIGENIN. Digoxin has positive inotropic and negative chronotropic activity. It is used to control ventricular rate in ATRIAL FIBRILLATION and in the management of congestive heart failure with atrial fibrillation. Its use in congestive heart failure and sinus rhythm is less certain. The margin between toxic and therapeutic doses is small. (From Martindale, The Extra Pharmacopoeia, 30th ed, p666)

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.

A THROMBIN inhibitor which acts by binding and blocking thrombogenic activity and the prevention of thrombus formation. It is used to reduce the risk of stroke and systemic EMBOLISM in patients with nonvalvular atrial fibrillation.
