Special course Interventional left atrial appendage closure

Today, interventional closure of the left atrial appendage is an important procedure to reduce the risk of stroke in high-risk patients and in contraindications to oral anticoagulation. Many patients with atrial fibrillation can be helped very effectively with this method and arrhythmia-related complications can be reduced. We will guide you step-by-step through the procedure, establish a solid theoretical foundation, and then practice this challenging intervention with you on various VR simulators. Benefit from the rich clinical experience of our interventional cardiologists, gain your first sense of achievement and get ready for your first real cases in your cath labs.
