Dr. Mathew continues our “Matters of the Heart” video series this month with a review of the WATCHMAN™ Device, a new device awaiting FDA approval that could help decrease the risk of stroke in patients with Atrial Fibrillation. (Last month, Dr. Mathew discussed LARIAT, another device/procedure currently available that can help decrease the risk of stroke.)

Each month we break down a topic related to heart conditions and treatments so you can be better informed about your heart condition and options that may be available to you. If you have a topic suggestion or would like more information after watching a video, please contact us today.
