Title (EN) METHODS AND DEVICES FOR TREATING THE LEFT ATRIAL APPENDAGE
(FR) MÉTHODES ET DISPOSITIFS POUR TRAITER L'APPENDICE ATRIAL GAUCHE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)Methods and devices that treat the left atrial appendage by bringing the distal wall of the appendage to a position where the tissue of the wall blocks the ostium, thereby preventing blood from flowing into the appendage. The methods and devices are adapted to create a separation between the distal wall of the appendage and the adjacent pericardium such that the risk of rupturing the pericardium are minimized.
(FR)L'invention concerne des méthodes et dispositifs pour traiter l'appendice atrial gauche en amenant la paroi distale de l'appendice à une position dans laquelle le tissu de la paroi bloque l'ostium, ce qui empêche l'écoulement du sang dans l'appendice. Les méthodes et les dispositifs sont conçus pour créer une séparation entre la paroi distale de l'appendice et le péricarde adjacent de telle sorte que le risque de rupture du péricarde est réduit.
