BACKGROUND The maze procedure and its modifications have been successful in treating atrial fibrillation (AF), at the expense of longer procedure times and increased morbidity. This study evaluated the early results of using radiofrequency ablation as a surgical adjunct in treating AF. METHODS Twenty-six patients, with established or frequent intermittent AF, who were undergoing various cardiac surgical procedures, were enrolled. During their operations, the patients underwent intraoperative… CONTINUE READING
