Information on Advanced Treatment of Atrial Fibrillation (AF)

Mini-Maze is a relatively new, minimally invasive surgical technique used to cure AF in which surgeons use a very precise instrument to destroy a small amount of tissue in the area near where the irregular signal starts. The damaged tissue can no longer conduct electrical impulses, interrupting the transmission of the abnormal signal and allowing the rest of the chamber to resume beating normally.
