Patient interview after surgical ablation and clip

Patient interview 4 days after totally thoracoscopic atrial fibrillation ablation and clipping of the left atrial appendage.

Totally Thoracoscopic Atrial Fibrillation Ablation and LAA clipping

Stand-alone left atrial appendage closure is a valuable option in patients with atrial fibrillation who cannot tolerate oral anticoagulants. When other medications such as antiplatelet agents are contraindicated, a percutaneous LAA closure (Watchman or Amplatzer) is not an option either. In this scenario, thoracoscopic LAA closure offers ideal outcomes. After the short procedure no anticoagulation can be discussed and implemented.

Watch this video about a 57y old patient who couldn't get the procedure done in the UK and who travelled to Zurich for a thoracoscopic Clip.

He also has (had) long standing atrial fibrillation - we did an additional ablation - flew back to the UK on day 4 in Sinus Rhythm and no OAC.
