Abstract

The safety and efficacy of a left atrial appendage closure device is currently under evaluation in a large-scale multi-center clinical trial. We report an initial case of left atrial appendage occluder device infection with Staphylococcus aureus; transesophageal echocardiography played a pivotal role in diagnosis and treatment.
