Left Atrial Appendage (LAA) Occluders

This channel includes news and new technology innovations about Left Atrial Appendage (LAA) Occluders. These close off the LAA in patients with atrial fibrillation to prevent the formation of stroke-causing clots in atrial fibrillation (AFib or AF) patients. LAA occlusion is often indicated for patients who do not tolerate anticoagulation therpy or have bleeding risks associated with use of that therapy.
