The AMPLATZER LAA Occluder is a transcatheter, self-expanding nitinol device intended for use in preventing thrombus embolization from the LAA. The purpose of this study is to compile real world outcome data on the use of AMPLATZER LAA Occluder in subjects with non-valvular atrial fibrillation (NVAF)
The AMPLATZER LAA Occluder device will be clinically evaluated through this post approval study. This is a prospective, multicenter, non-randomized observational post-approval study, on patients who will undergo an implant of the AMPLATZER LAA Occluder.
