Left Atrial Appendage Electrical Isolation via Bio-photonic Optical Confirmation to Treat Persistent Atrial Fibrillation

Project description

Cardiac implant for the treatment of stroke and arrhythmia

Atrial fibrillation (AF) is a condition characterised by irregular heartbeat caused by abnormal electrical activity that can lead to blood clots, stroke and heart failure. Millions of AF patients across Europe and the United States suffer from persistent AF (PAF), which is medication-resistant. Surgical electrical therapy destroys the heart tissue that causes the abnormal electrical pulses, but for PAF patients, this works only 30 % of the time. Irish AuriGen Medical has developed a minimally invasive cardiac implant that permanently isolates the left atrial appendage electrically and mechanically, treating both the stroke and arrhythmia risk associated with PAF with no increase in surgery time. The EU-funded LAA-START project will carry out clinical studies for safety and efficacy to complete product development as per the regulatory guidelines for medical devices.
