“Atrial fibrillation treatment starts with medication. Today, however, medication therapy is not sufficient. It helps only for a little while, and atrial fibrillation comes back, progresses and becomes chronic.
20-30% of patients abandon treatment by themselves because of its side effects. Atrial fibrillation starts in a specific area generating very fast waves of atrial tachycardia. These areas are located at the entrance of pulmonary veins. They can be reached and isolated in order to treat the condition. This is achieved with radiofrequency ablation.
Lately, physicians have also started to freeze pulmonary vein entries. This procedure may seem easy, but in reality, it’s not. It requires patience and attention.”
