UnityPoint Health – Trinity helps you receive advanced heart care close to home, including the WATCHMAN™ device for atrial fibrillation (AFib). We are the first program in the Quad Cities region offering this tiny device that lowers stroke risk. This offering is one of the many ways we are advancing care possibilities for the people we serve.
The WATCHMAN device may be right for you if:
AFib affects the heart's ability to pump blood. Instead of moving through its upper chambers, blood pools in an area called the left atrial appendage. Blood cells that are not in motion are likely to clot. If a clot travels through the bloodstream to the brain, it can cause a stroke.
WATCHMAN for AFib lowers your stroke risk by:
You receive care from cardiologists who have advanced (fellowship) training in heart rhythm disorders and cardiovascular disease. These doctors are members of Cardiovascular Medicine, P.C, an organization committed to cardiac care excellence.
Highlights of our program include:
The WATCHMAN device is acorn-shaped and about the size of a quarter. The top part closes off the left atrial appendage, and the bottom part, made of wire mesh, captures blood clots. We implant the device during a short, minimally invasive procedure. Most people return to daily activities within a few days.
During a WATCHMAN procedure, here's what to expect:
