Between Dec 12, 2002 and Aug 22, 2004, 84 operative patients with chronic atrial fibrillation (AF) were subjected to AF ablation with microwave energy. Of these, 49 patients were female; their ages ranged between 20 and 72 years (mean, 43.1 years). Most patients suffered from mitral disease, accompanied in over one third of cases with tricuspid insufficiency. Thirteen patients had aortic valve disease, mostly with mitral involvement. Three patients had coronary artery disease, three had atrial… CONTINUE READING
