The multidisciplinary Left Atrial Appendage Closure (LAAC) team at the CHI Health Clinic Heart Institute has extensive experience in procedural treatment of cardiovascular arrhythmias. The LAAC team is part of the Structural Heart Clinic and has been trained to implant the FDA-approved LAAC devices.
The Left Atrial Appendage (LAA) Closure Technology is a minimally invasive, advanced therapy used to treat some patients living with Atrial Fibrillation (AF) who are at increased risk for stroke. Patients who are implanted with a LAAC device are followed through the Arrhythmia Clinic at the CHI Health Clinic Heart Institute.
LAAC devices are umbrella-like devices that are placed using a catheter. They are FDA-approved LAA closure devices that effectively reduce stroke risk from thromboembolism from the left atrial appendage in patients with atrial fibrillation.
The left atrial appendage closure device is one of several treatments available through the Structural Heart Clinic at the CHI Health Clinic Heart Institute. The clinic provides therapy options for patients with persistent or permanent AF who are difficult to treat or continue to experience symptoms.
A multidisciplinary team of electrophysiologists, cardiologists, and nurse coordinators work with patients to determine the most appropriate and effective therapy to enhance quality of life. Nurse Coordinators assist patients throughout the course of care with work-up assessments, procedure planning, monitoring, and long-term follow up.
