Atrial Fibrillation

AFib is the most common and the most undertreated heart rhythm disorder in America. A significant rapid heart rhythm in the upper chambers (atria) of the heart. When the heart does not contract at a normal rhythm, blood is not pumped completely out of the atria and may pool and clot, which can lead to stroke and heart failure.

Effecting more than 3.5 million and expected to double by 2035 due to obesity, hypertension, diabetes and cardiovascular disease.

AF Ablation Candidates are Under-treated

Candidates treated with AF ablation vs. medications had improved symptoms:

  • AF episodes 100%
  • Palpitations 86%
  • Fatigue 76%
  • Rapid heartbeat-dyspnea 66%
  • Dizziness 54%
