While almost everyone has experienced an occasional racing heart at some point, whether caused by panic, excitement or stress, atrial fibrillation is a serious condition that can strike out of the blue. Misfired electrical impulses in the heart’s atrium send chaotic messages, causing erratic muscle contractions that prevent blood from fully leaving the heart’s upper chambers. When blood starts to pool in the body, it can turn into dangerous blood clots. Anticoagulants, or “blood thinners,” are the traditional treatment, but there are Warfarin alternatives for atrial fibrillation available.
Treating Atrial Fibrillation Without Warfarin Since 2003
There are several warfarin alternatives for atrial fibrillation treatment available, but some are less successful than others. For example, the risks of stroke on warfarin are still significant, especially when a patient first starts treatment. A patient’s diet can also decrease the effectiveness of their anticoagulant medication, making their condition more difficult to manage.
Dr. Randall Wolf designed the ground-breaking medical procedure known as the Wolf Mini-Maze specifically with AFib patients in mind. This multifaceted and minimally invasive procedure closes the Left Atrial Appendage (LAA) and has a success rate of 90%. It’s the best procedure for treating atrial fibrillation without warfarin or other drugs and lowers your risk of an AFib stroke by 97%. The Mini-Maze procedure is also vastly superior to other treatment alternatives, including the Watchman Device and the Lariat treatments due to its improved outcomes.
Warfarin is among the many AFib drugs to avoid whenever possible. Fortunately, the Wolf Mini-Maze procedure makes it possible to treat your AFib without it.
