O que é a Percutaneous Left Auricular Appendage closure

Closure of the Left Auricular Appendage is ​​a medical procedure, performed using minimally invasive techniques and is the result of extensive studies carried out in the main internationally recognized cardiology centers. Through the development of specific techniques and materials, it represents what is most modern and innovative in the treatment of Auricular Fibrillation.

Descrição do procedimento

During this procedure, this area is occluded by placing a prosthesis in its opening. The indication of this procedure is made by the doctor, taking into account the patient’s physical aspects and the evolution of treatment by medication, as it is an option for those who have complications with traditional approaches.

The main advantages of this procedure are:
– Minimally invasive procedure.
– Fast recovery and return to daily activities.
– Decrease in up to 85% of the probability of occurrence of stroke.
– End of the use of medications and constant tests to check the clotting factor.
– Decreased risk of bleeding caused by the use of anticoagulant drugs.

In Atrial Fibrillation, most clots form in the LAA (Left Atrial Appendage), which resembles a small pouch. With an average duration of two hours, the closure or occlusion is done through a femoral puncture, where a catheter is directed to the entrance of the LAA. A device is then installed, thus preventing existing or forming clots from being released into the bloodstream.

As the procedure is done through minimally invasive techniques, recovery is fast. After release, you must follow a series of medical recommendations and perform some tests periodically to check the evolution of your treatment.

The duration of a percutaneous left atrial appendage closure surgery is normally 100 minutes. Patients are discharged after 1 day.
Regarding work activity, after XX days the patient will be able to return to work. Normally, full mobility recovery is at the end of XX and moderate physical activity at XX.
