Crouse Health is the first hospital in Central New York to use the Watchman device, a minimally invasive implant approved by the FDA as an alternative to long-term blood thinner therapy for patients with atrial fibrillation (AFib), a common heart rhythm disorder. Studies have shown that the Watchman offers patients with AFib (not related to heart valve disease) as much protection from stroke as blood thinners, such as warfarin. Crouse cardiologist Joseph Battaglia, MD, chief of cardiology for the Miron Cardiac Care Center at Crouse, explains the device and how it works. Dr. Battaglia, along with colleagues Kwabena Boahene, MD, and Matthew Gorman, MD, are the first in Syracuse to implant the Watchman in AFib patients.
Coronary heart disease is caused by buildup of plaque in the coronary artery. This plaque buildup can cause the artery to be more narrow, which in turn limits blood flow. Coronary heart disease can lead to life-threatening heart conditions, such as a heart attack. If you or a loved one experiences a heart attack, do not contact Crouse Medical Practice online--call 911, as a heart attack is a medical emergency that requires emergency medical attention.
