Atrial Fibrillation

Advancements in the treatment and prevention of Atrial Fibrillation are presented in this important new book. Atrial Fibrillation affects approximately 2.5 million individuals in the United States and is projected to affect 15 million individuals by 2050. In Atrial Fibrillation: From Bench to Bedside, the reader is provided with the latest information that is critically important in the daily care and for the potential cure of patients with Atrial Fibrillation. Each chapter deals with a different aspect of Atrial Fibrillation and was authored by internationally recognized experts in the evolving field of cardiac electrophysiology. This book is a single source that provides a multi-perspective look at and approach to Atrial Fibrillation. Because Atrial Fibrillation is so prevalent and affects all areas of medicine, the information in this book will be useful to cardiologists, cardiac surgeons, researchers, and all those in the medical field.

First use of new ablation catheter in US offers improved atrial fibrillation treatment

Dr. Daniel Melby, an investigator at the Minneapolis Heart Institute Foundation, performed the first atrial fibrillation ablation in the US using Biosense Webster's new THERMOCOOL SMARTTOUCH SF contact force sensing catheter as part of an FDA regulated safety trial. 'Contact force sensing combined with the more efficient irrigation design of this catheter may allow for a more effective ablation pattern while potentially reducing risk of thrombus formation and improving outcomes,' said Dr. Melby.
