Cardiac Ablation for Atrial Fibrillation (audio)
Cardiac ablation has been proven to be effective therapy in patients with atrial fibrillation (AF) who continue to be highly symptomatic, despite a trial of one or more antiarrhythmic drugs. In some patients, especially young individuals with very symptomatic AF, ablation may be preferred over years of drug therapy. In this podcast, Bradley Knight, MD, will discuss cardiac ablation success rates and possible complications.
Bradley Knight, MD, is medical director of Electrophysiology and medical director of Electrocardiography at the Bluhm Cardiovascular Institute of Northwestern Memorial Hospital and professor of medicine at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine.
