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...
Left atrial appendage closure (LAAC) is an emerging therapeutic option in non-valvular atrial fibrillation (NVAF) patients with high thromboembolic and bleeding risks. In Europe the device...
The purpose of this study is to conduct a continuous telephone follow-up study on subjects who had completed the one-year follow-up of the LAmbre™ left atrial appendage (LAA) system regi...
This study will evaluate thrombogenicity in patients undergoing left atrial appendage closure using the WATCHMAN device. Parameters of thrombosis and platelet function, as well as other bi...
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...
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, t...
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).
The left atrial appendage (LAA) is a major site of clot formation in atrial fibrillation. Stand-alone thoracoscopic LAA complete closure can decrease stroke risk and may be an alternative to life-long...
The left atrial appendage (LAA) in the setting of non-valvular atrial fibrillation (NVAF) is the predominant location for intracardiac thrombus formation. An absent LAA is a very rare congenital cardi...
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.
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).
Absence of the orifice between the RIGHT ATRIUM and RIGHT VENTRICLE, with the presence of an atrial defect through which all the systemic venous return reaches the left heart. As a result, there is left ventricular hypertrophy (HYPERTROPHY, LEFT VENTRICULAR) because the right ventricle is absent or not functional.
