Henry, was the ablation in the right atrium or left (pulmonary veins). What was name of Doctor?
: I am a 46 year old healthy male who developed a serious case of Atrial Fibulation in July of 1998. I developed a virus which affected my heart in this manner, otherwise I had a healthy normal heart. I could not be kept in regular sinus rhythm for any longer than a month at a time inspite of taking 800 mg of Amiodarone daily. I underwent several cardioversions during this period. I finally underwent a Catheter Ablation in Vancouver Canada on August 30th/99. I am pleased to say that I have not had a problem with atrial fibulation since that time. I was gradually taken off of medication and have been drug free for over 3 months. I know that all cases are different, but for me a Catheter Ablation did the trick. I would be pleased to discuss my case with anyone thinking of this procedure.
