WEST CHESTER, Ohio, Sept. 10 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- AtriCure, Inc. (Nasdaq: ATRC), a medical device company focused on developing, manufacturing and selling innovative cardiac surgical devices, announced today that its Cosgrove-Gillinov Left Atrial Appendage Occlusion System was successfully implanted during an open-heart surgical procedure performed by Professor Michele Genoni and Dr. Sacha Salzberg of The University of Zurich in Switzerland with the support of Dr. Marc Gillinov of the Cleveland Clinic.

The Cosgrove-Gillinov Left Atrial Appendage Occlusion System is a clip device that is designed to occlude the left atrial appendage, a hollow sac-like structure attached to the heart's left atrium.

During AF, stagnant blood pools in the trabeculations of the left atrial appendage and is known to form clots that can migrate to other parts of the body.
