Abstract

Although percutaneous left atrial appendage (LAA) closure is becoming a common procedure worldwide, there are still some anatomic limitations. The size of the LAA is one of the current limitations as the most popular devices do not allow the closure of very large LAAs. The new Amplatzer Cardiac Plug 2, also called "Amulet," has been redesigned not only to improve delivery and safety but also to allow the closure of larger LAAs. The present report describes the successful closure of a very large LAA using the Amulet.
