Combined Left Atrial Appendage Closure and Pacemaker Implant through a Single Right Femoral Vein Access


Regoli, François; Moccetti, Tiziano; Pasotti, Elena; Auricchio, Angelo; Moccetti, Marco (2016). Combined Left Atrial Appendage Closure and Pacemaker Implant through a Single Right Femoral Vein Access. Pacing and Clinical Electrophysiology : PACE, 39(8):900-902.

Abstract

Left atrial appendage (LAA) closure is indicated in patients with atrial fibrillation (AF) and high bleeding as well as thromboembolic risks. A subgroup of these patients may also present an indication for a single-chamber permanent pacemaker due to symptomatic low-rate AF or when "ablate and pace" strategy is indicated for rate control. A miniaturized wireless transcatheter pacing system (TPS) is now available as a single-chamber permanent pacemaker. This case presents how combined LAA closure and permanent pacemaker implant, by means of TPS, is feasible through a single femoral venous access.
