WATCHMAN: An Alternative to Blood Thinners for AFib Patients

watchman-an-alternative-to-blood-thinners-for-afib-patientsBlood thinners have traditionally been the default method for reducing stroke risk in patients with Atrial Fibrillation, or AFib.

Unfortunately, not everyone tolerates these medications well. The WATCHMAN implant allows people with AFib to get off blood thinners around 6 weeks after they have the minimally invasive WATCHMAN procedure.

MarinHealth interventional cardiologist Arun Raghupathy, MD, FACC, has performed numerous WATCHMAN procedures. In this podcast, he discusses who is a good candidate for the minimally invasive procedure and explains how the implant works.
