The prevalence of low left atrial appendage emptying velocity and thrombus in patients undergoing catheter ablation for atrial fibrillation on uninterrupted peri-procedural Warfarin therapy
Introduction: The 2012 HRS/EHRA/ECAS guidelines encourage pre-procedural transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) prior to ablation for atrial fibrillation (AF), but acknowledge a lack of consensus in patients maintained on therapeutic warfarin before, during and after the procedure. This is partly because the incidence of left atrial appendage (LAA) thrombus is so low, that it is hard to draw clear conclusion regarding the characteristics of patients who develop thrombus.
