Left Atrial Appendage Closure: Mechanical Approaches to Stroke Prevention in Atrial Fibrillation

Left Atrial Appendage Closure: Mechanical Approaches to Stroke Prevention in Atrial Fibrillation

Percutaneous left atrial appendage (LAA) closure is an emerging technology for thromboembolic prevention in patients with atrial fibrillation (AF). The first human implantation of an LAA device occurred in 2001, and since then four devices have received CE mark approval. These devices are being widely used in Europe for LAA closure in patients who are poor candidates for long-term oral anticoagulation. In the US, the WATCHMAN device (Boston Scientific) is anticipated to receive FDA approval imminently for AF patients who are warfarin-eligible. This approval is projected to significantly expand the indications for LAA closures worldwide. Thus, the volume of procedures is anticipated to escalate. This book discusses the epidemiology of AF as a cause of stroke; the use of LAA closure in the reduction of thromboembolism with AF; early surgical approaches and novel surgical devices for LAA closure; and current percutaneous approaches and devices available for LAA closure. The emphasis of this book is on percutaneous technical approaches and contemporary trial results on the leading devices (PLAATO, WATCHMAN, Amplatzer Cardiac Plug, and LARIAT). It also reviews unapproved devices in development, in both clinical and pre-clinical phases.

Pathophysiology and Surgical Treatment of Unilateral Vocal Fold Paralysis

Pathophysiology and Surgical Treatment of Unilateral Vocal Fold Paralysis

All laryngologists, especially general ENT doctors who see patients with paralytic dysphonia, as well as speech pathologists, will benefit from this book’s coverage of many basic and clinical aspects of reinnervation in retrieving patients’ normal voices.

Phonosurgical treatment for paralytic dysphonia was first established in the late 1970s in the form of arytenoid adduction and medialization laryngoplasty. It made possible the improvement of patients’ post-op voices, but it was difficult to regain patients’ own pre-paralysis voices. It has recently been established that immediate reconstruction of the recurrent laryngeal nerve during tumor extirpation is effective in recovery of their original voices in patients with unilateral vocal fold paralysis (VFP). The activity of the thyroarytenoid muscle is needed to recover normal voices. Nerve–muscle pedicle (NMP) flap implantation with a refined technique to the thyroarytenoid muscle is a novel method for that purpose. NMP flap implantation combined with arytenoid adduction was applied by the author to patients suffering from dysphonia and most patients did recover their nearly normal voices after surgery.

This book provides readers with (1) what the currently prevalent surgical procedures are, (2) unsatisfactory results of these conventional procedures, (3) results of immediate recurrent laryngeal nerve reconstruction during tumor extirpation, (4) the outcome of delayed reinnervation combined with arytenoid adduction in patients with VFP and further, (5) the scientific basis that explains the reasons why the author’s method is effective in the recovery of patients’ own pre-paralysis, normal voices.
