Abstract

Atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most common arrhythmia and affects 1% of the population. It is associated with the need for oral anticoagulation therapy for stroke prevention. Based on the fact that more than 90% of stroke causing thrombus has its origin within the left atrial appendage (LAA) [1], nonpharmacological approaches such as isolation of LAA from the blood circulation were proposed. However, this invasive way of stroke prevention has its own risk related to the device and procedure.
