Atriclip long term effect

I am considering Hybrid Ablation. This surgery includes LAA closure with Atriclip.

I am wondering the long effect of having a titanium bar attached to my heart like:

1) Is it going to erode?

2) Is it going to come loose overtime?

3) How long does it last?

 

Thanks

Ken

    I had a mini maze with atriclip to my LAA. Was told it is very safe and will not loosen. Ofcouse I don’t feel it.  Stroke risk reduced but 97% sure is peace of mind!
