• Cardiac Arrhythmia Surgery (MAZE Procedure)

    The MAZE procedure is a surgical procedure to treat atrial fibrillation (AFib), an abnormality of the electrical system of the heart. The procedure is performed by cardiothoracic surgeons who make incisions in both atria, disrupting the electrical impulses that cause an abnormal heart rhythm. Some patients with AFib are able to tolerate the arrhythmia or can control it with medication and the procedure is not necessary. However, in some patients, a surgical option is very appropriate.
