Amplatzer cardiac plug “very promising device” study suggests

Amplatzer Plug Cuts Stroke, Bleeding Risks in AFib

According to Study

Almost eight years out post pfo closure and the hairs on the back of my neck still stand up when I get an “Amplatzer” Google alert.  I guess it will always be that way until we get better guidelines and follow-up for PFO patients.

 

This alert however was for a large registry study on the Amplatzer plug for left atrial appendage (LAA) closure.  Read the full report as posted today in TCTMD by Todd Neale.  Caution is warranted despite positive findings of this study. As always, it is wise to always read the full disclosures of those involved for any potential conflicts of interest.
