Abstract

Background: Echocardiographic imaging is paramount during left atrial appendage occlusion (LAAO). Observational studies have demonstrated similar efficacy and safety of intracardiac echocardiography (ICE) from the left atrium and transesophageal echocardiography (TEE).

Purpose: To perform a cost-comparison of TEE and ICE guided LAAO by estimating the mean cost per patient.
