OBJECTIVES The aim of the study was to examine frequency, size, and localization of peri-device leaks after percutaneous left atrial appendage (LAA)-closure with the AMPLATZER-Cardiac-Plug (ACP) by using a multimodal imaging approach, i.e. combined cardiac-CT and TEE follow-up. BACKGROUND Catheter-based LAA-occlusion using ACP aims to reduce the risk of stroke in patients with atrial fibrillation. Detection of peri-device leaks after ACP implantation by TEE is challenging, the few available… CONTINUE READING
