In patients with atrial fibrillation (AF) and end-stage renal disease (ESRD), oral anticoagulants are contraindicated, and left atrial appendage occlusion (LAAO) is an alternative treatment. However, the efficacy of thromboembolic prevention using LAAO in these patients has rarely been reported in Asian populations. To our knowledge, this is the first long-term LAAO study in patients with AF undergoing dialysis in Asia.
