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 Amulet™ device will be evaluated for safety and efficacy by demonstrating its performance is non-inferior to the commercially available WATCHMAN® left atrial appendage closure devic...
This is a prospective, non-randomized, study of the safety and efficacy of the Occlutech® LAA occluder indicated for percutaneous LAA closure in adult male or female patients with atrial...
The purpose of this study is to determine if preforming a posterior left pericardiotomy prevents atrial fibrillation after cardiac surgery.
This study mainly evaluated the feasibility and safety of a kind of Left Atrial Appendage Occluders which is to prevent ischemic stroke caused by nonvalvular atrial fibrillation (AF)
We here report the first European experience with the novel LAmbre left atrial appendage (LAA) occluder, a self-expanding device consisting of an umbrella and a cover connected by a central waist.
We evaluated long-term safety and efficacy of concomitant left atrial appendage (LAA) closure and atrial fibrillation (AF) ablation.
The left atrial appendage (LAA) is the main source of cardioembolic stroke in patients with atrial fibrillation without valvular disease. Oral anticoagulation (OAC) has proven effective for preventing...
Stroke due to atrial fibrillation has been associated with a high risk of disability and mortality. Percutaneous left atrial appendage (LAA) closure has been established as an alternative strategy for...
Occlusion of the left atrial appendage (LAA) in patients with atrial fibrillation has become a standard therapy to prevent thromboembolic complications. We aim to present 3 cases of LAA occluder embol...
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.
Ear-shaped appendage of either atrium of the heart. (Dorland, 28th ed)
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).
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)
