AFib In The News

If you’re pursuing the latest in AFib research, you may have come across the name of renowned cardiology specialist: Dr. Randall K. Wolf, MD, FACS, FACC. Atrial fibrillation (AFib) affects roughly 4% of the population, so if you have this condition… you’re not alone.

Many people with this condition go for testing after experiencing the following symptoms that can be indicative of AFib:

  1. Heartbeat far above the normal range of 60 bpm (beats per minute) – 100 bpm
  2. Palpitations or fluttering sensation in the chest
  3. Excessive fatigue
  4. Shortness of breath
  5. Irregular heartbeat

The Wolf Mini-Maze Procedure

Those conducting atrial fibrillation research may have come upon Mini Maze news – news describing a surgical procedure to treat AFib that has many promising attributes. The Wolf Mini-Maze was created by Dr. Randall K. Wolf, MD, FACS, FACC — a leading expert in cardiology. The method centers on using sophisticated miniature cameras to look at the heart while operating.

Unlike some heart surgery procedures, the Wolf Mini-Maze method does not require the ribs to be spread apart. This minimally invasive procedure speeds up post-op recovery time considerably. It may even cut the recovery time in half. 

Get Rid of Blood Thinners?

Another promising discovery of recent AFib research reveals that the Wolf Mini-Maze method can eliminate the use of blood thinners for those suffering from the heart condition. This brings hope to those who thought they might spend the rest of their lives on blood thinners to decrease the chance of stroke and other potential complications related to AFib.

Trending AFib news is revealing more promising data by the month! For example, the above procedure can reduce your Afib stroke risk by an astonishing 97%!
