Imaging Support from 3D TEE in Left Atrial Appendage Closures
A case study from Elisabeth Hospital Essen
“In the past, we performed our LAA closure procedures with fluoroscopy and 2D TEE. Today, we find that real-time 3D TEE with color Doppler makes device sizing and implantation easier, which results in more effective LAAC therapy.”Thomas Schmitz, MD
Head of the cardiac catheter laboratory, Elisabeth Hospital Essen
