Interventions for stroke

LAA closure

Today, with an aging population, atrial fibrillation is more common and carries with it an increased risk of embolic cerebrovascular accidents. Anticoagulation strategies alone are not sufficient, and as a large proportion of the thrombus involved in these cerebrovascular accidents are seen to arise in the left atrial appendage (LAA), its closure, either surgically or by percutaneous methods, could reduce risk. Learn more about imaging, tools, devices and techniques as well as adjunctive pharmacotherapy, vascular access and bleeding here.
