The aim of this EP Wire survey was to assess the indications and anticoagulation strategies post-left atrial appendage occluder (LAAO) implantation for stroke prevention in patients with non-valvular atrial fibrillation in Europe. A total of 33 centres in 13 European countries completed the survey. All centres were members of the European Heart Rhythm Association Electrophysiology Research Network. Left atrial appendage occluder procedures were performed by electrophysiologists in 52% of the centres and by interventional cardiologists in the remaining centres. The EP Wire survey has revealed that the most common indications for LAAO are stroke prevention in patients at high thrombo-embolic risk and absolute contraindications to oral anticoagulation (OAC) therapy or a history of bleeding. Early- and long-term post-implantation anticoagulation strategies in patients with and without device thrombosis were very heterogeneous between centres with most strategies not being supported by the randomized trials. In patients without contraindications to OAC, 41% of the centres would prescribe no therapy at all after 6 months following LAAO implantation. In patients with LAA thrombus during follow-up and patients with absolute contraindications to OAC, management was highly heterogeneous and included aspirin, clopidogrel, non-vitamin K antagonist oral anticoagulants, low molecular weight heparin, surgery, unfractionated heparin, or no therapy.
