Derek: “It’s Life-Changing” to Receive an LAA Occluder

Derek, who had atrial fibrillation and whose left atrial appendage (LAA) contributed to a stroke, was treated with anticoagulants—but they resulted in a cerebral hemorrhage. David Hildick-Smith, MD, noted that Amplatzer LAA occlusion “reduces the risk of stroke very substantially, but it also offers patients a peace of mind [when they otherwise are] unprotected from the risk of stroke.”

Alan: Finally “Getting the Care” He Needed with Amplatzer PFO Occluder

“It’s scary,” said Alan, who had had a stroke due to a patent foramen ovale, and who didn’t know if and when he might have a recurrent stroke. After Amplatzer PFO closure “He’s like a new man,” his wife, Emma, remarked about Alan, who’s back to walking 12 miles a day as a mail carrier. “And I owe everyone a massive thank you,” Alan said.

Jozef: “Finding Just the Right Device” Helped Turn His Life Around

Over time Jozef’s ventricular septal defect (VSD) precipitated endocarditis, which in turn led to heart failure and kidney failure. After receiving the Amplatzer VSD Occluder Jozef, amazed at his symptom improvement and ability to walk long distances again, said “I feel joy deep inside me—inside my heart.”

Gareth: Getting “A Second Life” with Transcatheter Aortic Valve Implantation (TAVI)

“It was so successful in terms of symptom relief, and his recovery was astoundingly quick,” explained Dave Smith, MD, interventional cardiologist who treated Gareth with the Portico valve. “My life is back, and I can do everything now,” said Gareth.

Alessandro: “I Was at the End of My Life” Before Receiving MitraClip

“I couldn’t walk anymore, I couldn’t climb stairs, I couldn’t do anything,” said Alessandro. After receiving MitraClip which eliminated his mitral regurgitation, “I started to feel well, my breathing was good again, and I could return to cutting grass with a scythe—really my life had begun again.”
