The WATCHMAN implant is a one-time, minimally invasive procedure that may provide non-valvular atrial fibrillation (NVAF) patients with a lifetime of stroke risk reduction without the bleeding risk associated with long-term oral anticoagulant therapy. The WATCHMAN implant may be suitable for a broad range of NVAF patients and may be an appropriate option for patients that:

  • Have an increased risk for stroke and be recommended for anticoagulation
  • Are suitable for short-term warfarin
  • Have an appropriate reason to seek a non-pharmacologic alternative to warfarin

Long-term results from PROTECT AF and PREVAIL demonstrated WATCHMAN reduced risk of disabling stroke, bleeding post procedure, and mortality vs. warfarin, including:

  • 55% relative risk reduction in disabling and fatal strokes
  • 72% relative risk reduction in major bleeding 6-months post implant
  • 27% relative risk reduction in all-cause mortality
