Overview

This broadcast brings together a faculty of global standing to share experiences of optimising procedural workflow with the WATCHMAN FLXTM.

With a focus on procedural considerations (including pre-, peri-, and post-procedure), in addition to providing expert insight on tools to support optimal patient care, this session will provide authoritative update on the management of LAAC and treatment strategies for patients at high risk of stroke. 

In a series of presentations and discussions moderated by Dr Sergio Berti (Fondazione Toscana Gabriele Monasterio, IT), Dr Xavier Iriart (University Hospital of Bordeaux, FR) will focus on CT acquisition techniques and how to evaluate, whilst Dr Xavier Millan (Hospital de la Santa Creu i Sant Pau, Barcelona, ES) will explore the WATCHMANTM TruPlanTM software for LAAC pre-procedural planning.

Prof Carsten Skurk (Charité Universitätsmedizin, Berlin, DE) will present a challenging case focussing on optimising the TSP and WM FLX implanting in difficult anatomies, before Prof Jens Erik Nielsen Kudsk (Aarhus Universitetshospital, Skejby, Aarhus, DK) will consider the role of cardiac CT in follow-up after LAA closure.

This broadcast will deliver best-in-class, practical-based education and provide attendees with the opportunity to interact with the faculty via a live audience Q&A.
