5-Year Experience of Appendage Closure: More Evidence that Does Not Translate into Clinical Practice

5-Year Experience of Appendage Closure: More Evidence that Does Not Translate into Clinical Practice

The use of percutaneous left appendage closure increased 3.6-fold from 2011 to 2015, but this volume increase did not entail a significant uptrend of in-hospital events in this “real-world” population in Germany. However, can Germany be considered a real-world setting for Latin America? This question is warranted by the fact that there is no apparent

Five-Year Outcomes for Appendage Closure

The PROTECT AF (WATCHMAN Left Atrial Appendage System for Embolic Protection in Patients With Atrial Fibrillation) trial demonstrated that left atrial appendage closure with the Watchman device was equivalent to warfarin for preventing stroke in atrial fibrillation, but it had a high rate of peri-procedural complications. The follow-up randomized trial was PREVAIL (Evaluation of the

TCT 2017 | PREVAIL: Final Outcomes of the Watchman Device

Courtesy of SBHCI. The final 5-year outcomes of the PROTECT AF and PREVAIL studies (which assessed the left atrial appendage closure device Watchman) continues to show similar stroke prevention rate to that of warfarin, though with a clear reduction in bleeding. The meta-analysis showed a significant reduction in hemorrhagic stroke (0.17% vs 0.87%), non-procedure related

Closing off the Appendage While Performing Cardiac Surgery Results in a Reduction in Risk of Embolic Stroke

Closing off the left appendage as an add-on procedure while performing other cardiac surgery in patients with atrial fibrillation resulted in a reduction in risk of embolic stroke of nearly 40% over 12 months, according to an analysis carried out on the Society of Thoracic Surgeons (STS) database.   Patients who had surgical appendage occlusion had
