Key Words Left atrial appendage; Atrial fibrillation; Anticoagulation; Stroke; Mortality
Core Tip Left atrial appendage occlusion (LAAO) is a reasonable alternative approach that is used in patients with atrial fibrillation who are not candidates for anticoagulation. A number of key trials have shown that Watchman device is non-inferior to warfarin therapy in preventing ischemic stroke/systemic thromboembolism. However, it is associated with lower rates of hemorrhagic stroke, bleeding and death. Multiple retrospective and prospective studies of Amplatzer device (ACP and Amulet) reported high success rates in device implantation and stroke prevention. Our objective is to consolidate the current literature to better delineate the safety, efficacy and indication of LAAO for stroke prevention.
