Abstract:

Atrial fibrillation is a major arrhythmia,which has as high prevalence
among populaion and the risk of stroke increasesgradually by
increasing age.Thromboembolism typically arises from a clot in left atrial appendix (LAA).Oral anticoagulation,surgical occlusion of the LAA and occlusion of LAA using less invasive percutaneous ,catheter based methods are the choices for preventing stroke.This presentation will focus on the LAA closure by percutaneous method.
