The left atrial appendage (LAA) is a highly variable anatomical structure, which may pose a challenge to successful LAA occlusion with currently approved technology. We present our experience with the compassionate use of the LAmbre LAA closure device (Lifetecha) for a 79-year-old male patient with non-valvular atrial fibrillation and multiple falls who was considered high risk for anticoagulation therapy.
