Waiting for a scheduled procedure can be nerve wracking at best. Especially if it is a complex procedure or one which you know little about. If you have been diagnosed with Atrial Fibrillation, been treated unsuccessfully with drugs and cardioversions and your physician has recommended an Atrial Fibrillation ablation you are not alone.
We estimate that up to 8,000 AFib ablations occur every month in the U.S. Due to the increasing number of patients in need of this procedure, there has been a growing amount of information created for the layperson.
This page contains resources for you to learn more about Atrial Fibrillation and how it may be treated. The links and videos on the page are for informational purposes only and do not equal endorsements of anytype.
We wish you a fibrillation free life.
