Özet

Objectives: Percutaneous left atrial appendage (LAA) closure is an important therapeutic option for prevention of thromboembolic stroke in patients with atrial fibrillation (AF), especially when contraindications exist for oral anticoagulation. We aimed to evaluate our short-term results of LAA closure (initial experience) using the WATCHMAN LAA system.
