PRAGUE--(BUSINESS WIRE)--A leading German cardiovascular heart center reported promising mid-term results for the surgical treatment of persistent atrial fibrillation (Afib) during last week’s International Society for Minimally Invasive Cardiothoracic Surgery (ISMICS) meeting being held in Prague, Czech Republic. At three-year follow-up, 80 percent of persistent Afib patients were free from Afib and off anti-arrhythmic medications using AtriCure’s Bipolar RF Ablation System. These results compare favorably with a more commonly performed, catheter-based approach. The team at Sana Heart Center in Stuttgart, Germany performed the beating heart thoracoscopic surgical procedures under the guidance of Professor Nicolas Doll, Chief of Cardiovascular Surgery at Sana.
