  • Intolerance to oral anticoagulation2
  • Elevated bleeding risk (HAS-BLED>=3; Elevated bleeding risk outside HAS-BLED-Score; Need for prolonged or repetitive triple therapy; Renal failure (severe) as contraindication to NOAC)1
  • Individual and specific anticoagulation risk constellation for stroke (Inefficient OAC; Electrically isolated LAA post ablation (indication for LAA occlusion controversial)1

Listen to the physician's perspective on the need for LAA closure therapy in patients with NVAF

Why WATCHMAN FLX?
