Surgical Atrial Fibrillation Ablation: An Electrophysiologist's Perspective.

Abstract

The experience and insight obtained during surgical ablation of all types of arrhythmias was formative for electrophysiology and catheter ablation. The early surgical ablation experience provided proof of concept as well direct operative observation of anatomy and pathophysiologic mechanisms. For atrial fibrillation (AF), surgical ablation anticipated many… (More)
