There is a cure for A-Fib.
From the Boston A-Fib Symposium, January 11-13, 2007.
Here is an excerpt from the conference.
New research and medical developments in A-Fib, featured a live demo of a Cryo balloon catheter ablation at Massachusetts General. Cryo ablation seems to be significantly safer for patients than standard RF ablation. The Cryo balloon catheter may become a major improvement in the treatment of A-Fib. It has already been approved in Europe, with close to 100% success rate in isolating the PVs ( Pulmonary Vein openings) and 75-80% success in keeping patients free of A-Fib without anti-arrhythmic drugs.
The A-Fib medical community seemed somewhat in awe of the French Bordeaux group's recently reported 95% success rate in curing Persistent A-Fib. ( The French seem to have definitely raised the bar for curing A-Fib. Their methods and success rates will probably soon become standard operating procedure for many centers in the US.

Take care everyone,

You know you're wired when...
You run like the bionic woman.
I've seen many posts about people being concerned about exercise after having a device so thought I would let you know that yesterday I raced my first marathon since having my pacemaker fitted in fall 2004.
