On the basis of the favorable results that he presented from PROTECT AF (Prospective, Multicenter Randomized Trial of Percutaneous Left Atrial Appendage Occlusion Versus Long-Term Warfarin Therapy in Patients with Nonvalvular Atrial Fibrillation), he sees the Watchman as a safe and effective alternative to the anticoagulant in those patients with nonvalvular AF whose stroke risk score makes them eligible for warfarin therapy.
