Combining Left Atrial Appendage Closure With Cryoballoon Ablation in Chinese Population

2019-12-10 01:21:19 | BioPortfolio


Cryoablation combined with left atrial appendage closure is a novel strategy for atrial fibrillation patients. Through long-term follow-up, the investigators aimed to observe the safety and efficacy of the combined procedure in Chinese population.


the investigators aimed to observe the clinical outcome of combining cryoballoon ablation (CBA) with left atrial appendage closure (LAAC) in drug-refractory non-valvular atrial fibrillation patients, who have high risk of stroke or hemorrhage, or contraindication of long-term oral anticoagulants (OACs).

The combined procedure was completed using CBA following LAAC. Generally, 3-month OACs, following 3-month double antiplatelet therapy, and lifelong single platelet therapy was recommended as antithrombotic regimen.

At 3rd,6th,12th and every year after since the procedure, Holter and transoesophageal echocardiography monitoring, and outpatient follow-up was applied to every patient.

The safety was evaluated by all-cause mortality, peri- and postprocedural complications. While the efficacy was evaluated through the freedom of atrial arrhythmia, stroke incidence, and withdrawal of OACs.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.
