Complimentary Webinar: Devices to Prevent Afib Strokes

If you'd like to learn what you can do if you're at risk for a stroke but can't (or prefer not to) take blood thinners, join on June 15 at 3 pm CDT for a webinar featuring renowned electrophysiologist and Associate Professor of Medicine at Vanderbilt University, Dr. Christopher Ellis. On this webinar, you can expect to discover:

* How to determine your stroke risk, and whether you should be on a blood thinner.
* Your options if you can't take blood thinners (or prefer not to).
* What Left Atrial Appendage Occlusion is (as an alternative to blood thinners), and who it is for.
* The different ways electrophysiologists and surgeons can close off the Left Atrial Appendage.
* How to determine whether you may qualify for a Left Atrial Appendage procedure.
* What to expect if you undergo a Left Atrial Appendage procedure.
* And more.

Plus, get a sneak peek of what Dr. Ellis will share at the 2018 Get in Rhythm. Stay in Rhythm.® Atrial Fibrillation Patient Conference August 3-5 in Dallas, Texas!

    Scarlet and all,

    The webinar yesterday afternoon was fantastic. Melissa just got everything for the replay pulled together in the past few minutes (I'm very grateful to her for doing that on a Saturday morning when we are both still exhausted from all we had to do this week to pull this webinar off). 

    You can register at this link to receive the replay: Devices to Prevent Afib Strokes Webinar (

    I really encourage everyone with afib to watch this webinar as you will learn so much about stroke risk and alternatives to blood thinners (Watchman, Lariat, AtriClip, and Amulet).

    Thank you Mellanie for the webinar link. Just finished it , the information was incredibly useful.

    I am one of those people that is not able to take anticoagulants do to a Cavernous Malformation in brain stem with previous bleed history.

    I will see Dr. Natale on Tuesday with tentative ablation procedure next month. I have had paroxismal afib for several year although officially

    diagnosed in 2015. Meds have not worked and all doctor were hesitant to do the procedure do to brain bleed risk while on anticoagulants during and

    after (even for short term )  the procedure. I admitt I fell as though I am a stroke waiting to happen wether I have the procedure or I don't. I am super

    scared and putting the outcome in God's hands. I don't really post but read the digest daily and have learned soooo much. Thank you for all your work. Scarlet
