Watchman Device - A new option to reduce strokes in patients with Atrial Fibrillation (Afib)

We are proud to announce that Alabama Cardiovascular Group's team of cardiologists were the first in the state of Alabama to implant the Watchman Device to prevent strokes in patients with Afib.

Patients with atrial fibrillation (Afib) have on average a 5 fold higher risk of having a stroke. Most strokes are caused by blood clots that originate in the left atrial appendage.

Traditionally, blood thinners have been used to reduce the risk of strokes in patients with Afib. However, these medications may cause side effects, and also increase the risk of bleeding.

The WATCHMAN™ LAAC Device offers a new stroke risk reduction option for patients with non-valvular atrial fibrillation who are seeking an alternative to long-term warfarin therapy.

Please watch our presentation to learn more about afib and the WATCHMAN™ LAAC Device.
