Brief Summary:
The AMPLATZER LAA Occluder is a transcatheter, self-expanding nitinol device intended for use in preventing thrombus embolization from the LAA. The purpose of this study is to compile real world outcome data on the use of AMPLATZER LAA Occluder in subjects with non-valvular atrial fibrillation (NVAF)

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment
Atrial Fibrillation Thromboembolism Stroke Device: AMPLATZER™ LAA Occluder

Intervention Details:
  • Device: AMPLATZER™ LAA Occluder
    The AMPLATZER™ LAA Occluder is intended to prevent thrombus embolization from the left atrial appendage (LAA) in patients who have nonvalvular Atrial Fibrillation (AF). It may be considered for use in patients who have a high risk of stroke and bleeding and are deemed by their physician to have an appropriate rationale to seek a non-pharmacologic alternative to long term anticoagulants.
    Other Names:
    • AMPLATZER™ Cardiac Plug™
    • AMPLATZER™ Amulet™

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. The occurrence of one or more adverse events listed in description below [ Time Frame: Implant through 24 months ]
    The occurrence of one or more the composite of stroke (including ischemic or hemorrhagic), systemic embolism, or cardiovascular or unexplained death at 24 months from the time of enrollment

  2. The occurrence of ischemic stroke or systemic embolism as listed in description below. [ Time Frame: Implant through 24 months ]
    The occurrence of ischemic stroke or systemic embolism at 24 months from the time of enrollment

  3. The occurrence of a major adverse event within 7 days [ Time Frame: Implant through 7 days ]
    The occurrence of one of the following events between the time of implant and within 7 days of the procedure or by hospital discharge, whichever is later: all-cause death, ischemic stroke, systemic embolism, or device or procedure-related events requiring open cardiac surgery or major endovascular repair

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Comparison of the observed rate of ischemic stroke or systemic embolism at 24months with the CHA2DS2-VASc predicted rate [ Time Frame: Implant through 24 months ]
