If you’re one of the 4% of people with the heart condition known as atrial fibrillation (AFib), you may be aware of risks associated with this condition. Fortunately, treatment has advanced considerably since 2003 for AFib — with an option for minimally invasive heart surgery.
Dr. Randall Wolf is the Professor of Cardiothoracic Surgery and Director of the Center for Surgical Innovation, University of Cincinnati Surgeons. He is a leading expert, worldwide, on AFib treatment and ways to prevent atrial fibrillation strokes.
The Wolf Mini-Maze Minimally Invasive Surgical Procedure
Dr. Randall K. Wolf, MD, FACS, FACC, is the creator of the Wolf Mini-Maze procedure to treat AFib. One of the goals of his procedure is to prevent atrial fibrillation strokes. Patients that have undergone his treatment can reduce their AFib stroke risk by an astonishing 97%!
Dr. Wolf designed surgical clamps for the purpose of left atrial appendage closure in AFib (LAA). The reason this is so important is that stroke from clots that develop primarily in the left atrial appendage (LAA) during AFib has been one of the most feared results of atrial fibrillation. Dr. Wolf has developed a superior treatment for AFib compared to blood thinners, Watchman, Lariat and other medications. Dr. Wolf has been practicing the Mini-Maze procedure since its inception in 2003.
AFiB Seminars Around the World
Dr. Wolf has been hosting seminars around the world on how to prevent stroke from AFib. Many with this condition attend his seminars because they’re seeking solutions outside of taking blood-thinning medication for the rest of their life.
Many surgeons and medical students attend his numerous seminars to get the latest information and developments concerning this somewhat common heart condition.
