This is a prospective, single-center, randomized, active controlled, clinical trail to assess the efficacy and safety of surgical closure of left atrial appendage (LAA) in patients undergoing coronary artery bypass graft.

Atrial fibrillation is a heart rhythm disorder that often occurs after heart surgery. During atrial fibrillation blood cloths may form, predominantly in the left atrial appendage, a small ...
The proposed work seeks to further understand the effects of LAA occlusion on cardiac structure and function, and in homeostasis. Numerous studies have implicated the left atrial appendag...
"Left Atrial Appendage Occlusion and Biomarker Evaluation" (LABLE) is a single-center, prospective and observational study evaluating changes of the expression of biomarkers in eligible pa...
A pilot, multicentre randomized controlled study of surgical left atrial occlusion (LAA) in 50 patients with atrial fibrillation/flutter undergoing cardiac surgery requiring cardiopulmonar...
This study is to evaluate acute and long-term safety and effectiveness of Left atrial appendage occlusion (LAA)with the AtriCure LAA Occlusion System. This device will be applied in patien...
To demonstrate the feasibility of combining left atrial appendage electrical isolation (LAAEI) with left atrial appendage occlusion (LAAO) to increase efficacy of persistent/longstanding atrial fibril...
A 70-year-old man underwent cardiac surgery including left atrial appendage closure. A pigtail catheter was inserted into the pericardial sac because of delayed tamponade. Removal of the catheter was ...
Left atrial appendage (LAA) occlusion is an alternative therapy for atrial fibrillation patients who have high embolic risk and contraindications to anticoagulant therapy.
Percutaneous left atrial appendage (LAA) occlusion with Lariat has emerged as a viable alternative to oral anticoagulation (OAC) to prevent thromboembolic (TE) events in patients with atrial fibrillat...
Occlusion of the outflow tract in either the LEFT VENTRICLE or the RIGHT VENTRICLE of the heart. This may result from CONGENITAL HEART DEFECTS, predisposing heart diseases, complications of surgery, or HEART NEOPLASMS.
Ear-shaped appendage of either atrium of the heart. (Dorland, 28th ed)
Small pumps, often implantable, designed for temporarily assisting the heart, usually the left ventricle, to pump blood; they consist of a pumping chamber and a power source, which may be partially or totally external to the body and activated by electromagnetic motors; the devices are used after myocardial infarction or to wean the repaired heart from the heart-lung machine after open-heart surgery.
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.
Apparatus that provides mechanical circulatory support during open-heart surgery, by passing the heart to facilitate surgery on the organ. The basic function of the machine is to oxygenate the body's venous supply of blood and then pump it back into the arterial system. The machine also provides intracardiac suction, filtration, and temperature control. Some of the more important components of these machines include pumps, oxygenators, temperature regulators, and filters. (UMDNS, 1999)
Surgery is a technology consisting of a physical intervention on tissues. All forms of surgery are considered invasive procedures; so-called "noninvasive surgery" usually refers to an excision that does not penetrate the structure being exci...
