Left atrial appendage device


A 67-year old female patient presented at Yashoda Hospitals with atrial fibrillation. 

Diagnosis & Treatment

She had a CHA2DS2-VASc score of 4. Therefore, she needed anticoagulation, but she was at high bleeding risk. The WATCHMAN device implantation was done to reduce stroke risk and avoid bleeding complications due to anticoagulation. This is the first-ever procedure done in both Telugu-speaking states.
