Left atrial appendage morphology and risk of stroke following pulmonary vein isolation for drug-refractory atrial fibrillation in low CHA2DS2Vasc risk patients Faith R. Kelly1, Robert A. Hull2, Takor B. Arrey-Mbi2, Michael U. Williams2, Joshua S. Lee1, Ahmad M. Slim1 and Dustin M. Thomas1* Abstract The left atrial appendage (LAA) is derived from the left wall of the primary atrium, which forms during the fourth week of embryonic development. 1 It is associated with a mortality rate of nearly 20% and a disability rate of nearly 60%. It has developmental, ultrastructural, and physiological characteristics distinct from the left atrium proper. It has been suggested in a few studies that certain types of LAA morphology are at heightened risk for thromboembolism in AF patients. Introduction. The bend angle was measured with an imaginary vertical line (red dashed line) and a line between the main lobe and the farthest point of the LAA. Background:The shape of the left atrial appendage (LAA) might affect thrombus formation.The chicken wing-type LAA (CW) has been reported as unlikely to influence stroke events in atrial fibrillation (AF) patients, so we investigated whether LAA shapes could influence LAA function.

left atrial appendage morphology types

2018 Oct;107(10):871-880. doi: 10.1007/s00392-018-1256-9. Atrial cardiopathy is a putative stroke mechanism that describes a liability to thrombus formation in the left atrial appendage in the absence of known atrial rhythm disturbances (atrial fibrillation or atrial flutter). More than 90% of thrombi in AF form in the left atrial appendage (LAA). Whether LAA morphology is associated with increased stroke/TIA risk is controversial and, if it does, which morphological type most predisposes to thrombus formation. J Am Coll Cardiol 2012; 60: 531–538. Left atrial appendage morphology assessment for risk stratification of embolic stroke in patients with atrial fibrillation: A meta-analysis. Left atrial appendage (LAA) is the site with the highest blood stasis which causes thrombus formation. In normal hearts, the heart contracts with each heartbeat, and the blood in the left atrium and LAA is squeezed out of the left atrium into the left ventricle (bottom left chamber of the heart). In patients with atrial fibrillation (AF), most thrombus formation occurs in the left atrial appendage (LAA) because the saccate and complex morphology of the LAA induces stasis of blood flow. Circulation 129: e28–e292. LAA volumes were significantly larger (P<0.001) in both stroke study groups compared to controls patients. Hence, we aimed to investigate the association of left atrial appendage (LAA) and left atrium (LA) morphological parameters in patients with cardio-embolic (CE) stroke due to AF in comparison to controls without stroke. Stroke. We assessed LAA morphology in stroke patients with cryptogenic or suspected cardiogenic etiology and in age- and gender-matched healthy controls.

A subgroup of 40 patients was compared to an age- and gender-matched control group of 40 healthy individuals (21 males in each; mean age 54 ± 9 years). Patients with chicken wing LAA morphology are less likely to develop TE than patients with non-chicken wing morphology. It has been suggested in a few studies that certain types of LAA morphology are at heightened risk for thromboembolism in AF patients. USA.gov. LAA was classified into four morphology types (Cactus, ChickenWing, WindSock, CauliFlower) modified with a quantitative qualifier. The left atrial appendage (LAA) is a finger-like extension originating from the main body of the left atrium.
