Abstract

The unique anatomic position of the pericardium in juxtaposition to central cardiac structures enables it to serve as the ideal vantage point for the delivery of novel cardiovascular therapies. Development of new tools to permit delivery of therapy in the closed pericardial space holds promise for near-surgical access to the heart, without open surgical morbidity. Early observations raise hope for the availability of epicardial leads to enhance cardiac resynchronization therapy designed for subxiphoid nonsurgical percutaneous delivery. Emerging technologies for left atrial appendage ligation may offer new strategies for preventing stroke.
