Abstract

Left atrial appendage occlusion (LAAO) is a rapidly evolving technology. Multi-modality imaging and understanding of left atrial appendage anatomy are sure to advance. Two-dimensional and 3-dimensional transesophageal echocardiography with fluoroscopy are the mainstay for LAAO image-guided therapy. Key to successful LAAO is an understanding of the transseptal puncture, LAAO size selection for the device-specific landing zone, and postdeployment evaluation for leak and complications. With advancements in computed tomography, there may be a greater role for intracardiac echocardiographic imaging in specific types of LAAO anatomy and devices.
