Abstract

Surgical and interventional exclusion left atrial appendage (LAA) are becoming important alternatives to oral anticoagulation for stroke prevention in the setting of atrial fibrillation. Herein we present the different approaches (endocardial vs. epicardial) to LAA occlusion. Each approach is depicted in detail and relevant literature is briefly presented.
