How to close the left atrial appendage workshop


Dear Colleagues,

Many patients with atrial fibrillation cannot take anticoagulation initially or have to stop it later due to complications. Even newly invented anticoagulants are often unsuitable for these patients.
LAA closure has become a reasonable alternative.

During this 2-day course you will get an overview on all aspects of this treatment modality, including indications for LAA closure, utility and application of invasive and noninvasive imaging modalities,  transseptal puncture as well as epicardial LAA closure.
Clinical studies will be covered and we will also demonstrate how to perform the procedure step by step and how to prevent and manage complications.
Live case transmisssions are a core of this course and will allow direct attendee-operator interaction to maximize the learning experience.
We look forward to seeing you in Frankfurt on November 13–14, 2020!

Horst Sievert
