Atrial Fibrillation (A-fib): Ablation Surgery
May Be More Powerful Than Tablets
Atrial fibrillation (A-fib) is a cardiovascular condition
that causes irregular and regularly fast heartbeats.
Episodes of traumatic atrial inflammation tend to
increase in duration and frequency over the years
and disease progression is associated with a higher
probability of adverse
Treatments for traumatic atrial inflammation
include antiarrhythmic medications and catheter ablation
A recent randomized clinical trial showed that the use of
cryoballoon ablation, a type of catheter ablation
as initial treatment is associated with a lower rate of
atrial fibrillation progression than antiarrhythmic tablets.
Studies suggest that about 1 to 2%, depending on the source of
people in the United States, have atrial fibrillation (A-fib).
Atrial fibrillation can become more severe over the years, progressing
from rapid episodes to more continuous forms characterized by longer
