LAA 2015 Abstracts: How to Close the Left Atrial Appendage

LAA Frankfurt: How to Close the Left Atrial Appendage
Anticoagulation for stroke prevention in atrial fibrillation is difficult in clinical practice - with Coumadin and also with NOACS. Left atrial appendage closure has been shown to be superior to anticoagulation regarding stroke prevention, bleeding complications and even mortality. Several devices now have CE mark and/or FDA approval and many others are already in clinical trials.

LAA Frankfurt is a 2-day course, designed to give attendees an overview on all aspects of this treatment modality. During the course we cover clinical studies and demonstrate how to perform the procedure step by step and how to prevent and manage complications. Live case transmissions are a core of this course and allow direct attendee-operator interaction to maximize the learning experience.

LAA 2016 will take place November 18-19, in Frankfurt, Germany. If you would like to join this year, please visit our website for more information.
