Surgical Treatment of Cardiac Arrhythmias Like Atrial Fibrillation

Atrial fibrillation is the most common cardiac arrhythmia in Sacramento, as well as across the country. Conservatively, this irregular heartbeat affects 2 million Americans, although studies by the Mayo Clinic suggest that the number is, in reality, closer to 5 million. Either way, it is expected that by 2050, tens of millions of people will suffer from AF.

Maybe you’re one of these people. Do you suffer from the symptoms of Afib  shortness of breath, light-headedness, fainting, excessive sweating, chest discomfort or exhaustion? If diagnosed with atrial fibrillation, has your physician prescribed Coumadin (warfarin)? Do you know that Coumadin only manages the symptoms of the irregular heartbeat so as to hopefully prevent the most dangerous, long-term side effects of AF  stroke, organ damage resulting from hypoxia (lack of oxygen), and congestive heart failure (CHF)? Do you know that Afib forces you to live with a 25% reduction in cardiac output and results  as estimated by the American Heart Association  in over 70,000 strokes a year? Now you do. Here’s something else that you might NOT know:

Atrial fibrillation IS TREATABLE at Sacramento Cardiovascular Surgeons with either the minimally invasive Closed Chest Mini Maze or the Open Maze, which can be performed concomitantly with another open heart operation such as Valve Surgery or Coronary Artery Surgery.
