Atrial fibrillation, known as Afib, is one of the most common forms of arrhythmia, or irregular heartbeat. During Afib Awareness Month in September, The Heart Hospital Baylor Plano is talking with physicians on our medical staff to help you learn more about this condition. Take a few moments to find out more about Afib and how it's treated.
Cryoablation has the same goal as radiofrequency ablation, but it delivers energy to the heart in a different way to isolate the electrical signals causing Afib. Scott Greenberg, MD, an electrophysiologist on the medical staff, tells us more about how the procedure uses extreme cold to correct Afib.
If you have Afib, your physician on the medical staff may recommend an ablation procedure, such as radiofrequency ablation, to disrupt the abnormal electrical signals in your heart. Brian DeVille, MD, co-medical director of electrophysiology at Baylor Scott & White Health, explains what to expect during this procedure.
Afib occurs when extra electrical signals in the upper chambers of the heart cause a rapid and irregular heartbeat. Find out more as Adam Shapira, MD, medical director of electrophysiology services at The Heart Hospital Baylor Plano, discusses the signs of Afib, risk factors and treatment options.
If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with Afib, The Heart Hospital Baylor Plano is here to provide advanced, personal care.
