Watchman™ LAAC Implant

The Watchman™ Left Atrial Appendage Closure (LAAC) Implant provides an alternative for patients with atrial fibrillation who take warfarin on a long-term basis to help prevent blood clots and possible stroke. The implant acts as a safety net by closing off the left atrial appendage (LAA) and catching harmful blood clots before they enter the bloodstream.

The LAAC device is inserted through a catheter in the femoral vein in the groin and guided into the patient’s heart, where it can filter potential blood clots and prevent possible stroke.
