 (submitted: October 4, 2017)
Ischemic stroke, systemic embolism [ Time Frame: 45 days ]
The secondary endpoint is the rate of ischemic stroke or systemic embolism with the WaveCrest device in comparison to the CHADS2 and CHA2DS2-VASc imputed risk of ischemic stroke or systemic embolism in the absence of anticoagulant therapy

Official Title  ICMJE WAveCrest Vs. Watchman TranssEptal LAA Closure to REduce AF-Mediated STroke 2. A Prospective, Multicenter, Randomized, Active Controlled, Clinical Trial of the Coherex WaveCrest® Left Atrial Appendage Occlusion System Compared to the Watchman® LAA Closure Device for the Reduction in Risk of Ischemic Stroke or Systemic Embolism in Subjects With Non-valvular Atrial Fibrillation That Have an Appropriate Rationale to Seek a Non-pharmacologic Alternative to Chronic Oral Anticoagulation.
Brief Summary The WAVECREST 2 trial is a prospective, multicenter, randomized, active controlled, clinical trial to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of the Coherex WaveCrest Left Atrial Appendage (LAA) Occlusion System.
Detailed Description The WAVECREST 2 trial is a prospective, multicenter, randomized, active controlled, clinical trial to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of the Coherex WaveCrest Left Atrial Appendage (LAA) Occlusion System. Subjects will be randomized in a 1:1 ratio to the Treatment Arm (Coherex WaveCrest LAA occlusion system) or the Control Arm (Boston Scientific's Watchman LAA occlusion system). The trial is designed to demonstrate that safety and effectiveness of the WaveCrest device are non-inferior to the Watchman device.
Study Type  ICMJE Interventional
Study Phase  ICMJE Phase 3
Study Design  ICMJE Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Single (Outcomes Assessor)
Masking Description:
If the subject is suspected of having a stroke since their most recent follow-up, a Neurologist blinded to subject's randomization and implanted device must evaluate the subject or otherwise provide rationale for why an in-person neurology visit and exam are unnecessary. Neurology or blinded trial personnel should also administer mRS & NIHSS if there is suspicion of stroke A Clinical Events Committee, also blinded to subject's randomization, will adjudicate primary safety and effectiveness.
Primary Purpose: Prevention

Eligibility Criteria  ICMJE

Inclusion Criteria:

  1. Documented evidence of paroxysmal, persistent, or permanent non-valvular atrial fibrillation
  2. At least 18 years of age
  3. Calculated CHADS2 score ≥ 2 or CHA2DS2-VASc score ≥ 3
  4. Indication for warfarin therapy with an appropriate rationale to seek a non-pharmacologic alternative to chronic oral anticoagulation
  5. Willing and able to comply with post-implant anticoagulation and antiplatelet regimen
  6. Willing to participate in the required follow-up visits and tests
  7. Subject has been informed of the nature of the trial, agrees to its provisions and has provided written informed consent as approved by the IRB/EC at the site

Exclusion Criteria:

  1. Atrial fibrillation (AF) due to a reversible cause (e.g. thyrotoxicosis or postoperative)
  2. Known contraindication and/or allergy to warfarin, nickel, aspirin, intravenous contrast or P2Y12 inhibitors (clopidogrel, ticagrelor, and prasugrel), which cannot be adequately pre-medicated or desensitized

  4. Contraindications for percutaneous catheterization procedures
  5. Prior surgical LAA occlusion/exclusion or implanted with LAA occlusion device, or any prior attempt of such procedures
  6. Prior percutaneous or surgical closure of a patent foramen ovale or atrial septal defect
  7. Inability or unwillingness to take oral anticoagulation for 45 days post-procedure
  8. New York Heart Association (NYHA) Class IV heart failure
  9. Prior cardiac transplant, history of mitral valve replacement or transcatheter mitral valve intervention, or any mechanical valve implant
