A new, randomized, controlled, non-inferiority study involving 302 subjects, funded by BD (Becton, Dickinson and Company) and 3M, found that using the BD Nexiva[TM] Closed IV Catheter System with the specially designed 3M[TM] Tegaderm[TM] IV Securement Dressing, provides effective catheter stabilization at a lower component cost and with a similar rate of securement-related complications (catheter dislodgement, poor adherence, infiltration and leakage) as a traditional IV catheter with an add-on securement device.
All these morphological features of LAA impart irregularity to the lumen and can provoke the formation of thrombus and its dislodgement in the event, if there is any cause for stagnation (left atrial arrhythmia, mitral valve pathology, atrial fibrillation, transient ischemic attack).
