IRA, Sorry for the delay in getting back to you. I believe that it was the left atrium. My doctor was: Dr. John Yeung, St. Paul's Hospital, Vancouver, Canada. He is one of North America's most advanced doctors in the field of electrophysiology.

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.
