CONSIDER A PERMANENT IMPLANT DESIGNED TO REDUCE STROKE RISK


The WATCHMAN Implant is an innovative one-time procedure designed to reduce the risk of strokes that originate in the left atrial appendage (LAA)

  • In the PREVAIL trial, WATCHMAN was implanted successfully in 95% of patients1*
  • The average procedure time is approximately 60 minutes, and patients typically stay in the hospital for 24 hours
  • After just 45 days following implantation, 92% of patients were able to stop taking warfarin; by 1 year, that number increased to more than 99%1

*Reasons for aborted implantation attempts were: the patient did not stop anticoagulation before the procedure; pre-implant transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) revealed a new LAA thrombus; LAA size and shape were not optimal for the device; and occurrence of an adverse event that forced the procedure to stop.1
