Chest X-ray showed cardiac enlargement and prominent left atrial appendage
The Left Atrial Appendage
Occlusion device can prevent cut the risk of strokes in such patients by 90 per cent.
The technology uses an expandable implant that blocks off the left atrial appendage
(LAA) by angiography -- a minimally-invasive treatment to prevent strokes caused by blood clots forming in the LAAin patients who suffer from atrial fibrillation, or irregular heartbeats.
This is the first randomised study to show that closure of the left atrial appendage
during open heart surgery effectively protects against brain infarctions and stroke, said Assoc Prof Helena Domnguez, the cardiologist who designed the study.
Although earlier studies state that typical or true drumstick appendage
are rarely seen in normal males, later observation in literature suggests that they can be seen in males but with lesser percentage compared to females.
18), in his morphological cladistic analyses about the evolution of the mandibular appendage
, and the pollinating syndromes of the Agaoninae, placed Tetrapus as the most basal clade to all other extant Agaoninae groups, and section Pharmacosycea, as the most ancestral group of Ficus.
US-based medical technology company Boston Scientific (NYSE: BSX) has released initial US commercial performance results of the Watchman Left Atrial Appendage
Closure Device, the company said.
Pygofer dorsal appendage
movably articulated, bifurcate at base, dorsal branch longer than ventral branch, extended beyond apex of lobe.
In Pakistani population, we are describing the morphology of left atrial appendage
for the first time.

The novel abdominal appendage
in male sepsid flies (Diptera: Sepsidae) has a complex evolutionary history of primary gain, loss, and regain which we explore using fluorescent microscopy to compare the size, volume, and number of cells in the histoblast cell nests that produce the appendage
during pupation across six genera including an ancestral outgroup which describe evolutionary history of the appendage
1) Aneurysm of left atrial appendage
occurs mostly due to increase in left atrial pressure secondary to mitral valve disease.
More than half of the patients who have suffered a stroke with no well-defined aetiology have an enlarged left atrial appendage
of the heart, according to a Finnish study.
A team of researchers from the University of Pennsylvania has engineered a raptor-like appendage
for a drone, enabling it to grasp objects at high speeds by swooping in like a bird of prey.
