Temporal Changes and Clinical Implications of Delayed Peridevice Leak Following Left Atrial Appendage Closure - JCEP January 2022
Temporal Changes and Clinical Implications of Delayed Peridevice Leak Following Left Atrial Appendage Closure - JCEP January 2022
Endocardial left atrial appendage closure (LAAC) devices are alternatives to long-term oral anticoagulation (OAC) for patients with atrial fibrillation. Peridevice leak (PDL) >5mm may prohibit discontinuation of OAC.  New PDL detected by TEE at 45-90 days occurred in a significant percentage of patients and was associated with worse clinical outcomes. PDL ≤3mm tended to regress overtime.
