WHAT IS ATRIAL FIBRILLATION OR AFib?

“Do you have a design in mind for your blog? Whether you prefer a trendy postcard look or you’re going for a more editorial style blog - there’s a stunning layout for everyone.”

Atrial fibrillation usually referred to as heart arrhythmia or an irregular heartbeat, is a common yet potentially deadly heart condition.


Doctors usually consider atrial fibrillation non-life-threatening. Many people occasionally experience heart palpitations from excess caffeine, cold medicine or alcohol. Yet, in certain circumstances, atrial fibrillation can be serious. Patients with atrial fibrillation are five times more likely to have a stroke. Also, if atrial fibrillation is rapid and lasts long enough, the heart can become overworked and weakened, contributing to heart failure. 


The most common symptoms can be a rapid or irregular heartbeat, fatigue, chest pain, palpitations or anxiety,  These symptoms could indicate a more serious problem, such as a heart attack.




A NEW TREATMENT TO MITRAL REGURGITATION


Previously, mitral valve surgery was the only option for treating mitral regurgitation. If you are not a candidate for surgery, you have a less-invasive treatment option.

Considering any type of procedure can be stressful for both patients and caregivers, but knowing the facts about the MitraClip procedure can help alleviate anxiety:

  • The procedure is less invasive than traditional open-heart surgery

  • The procedure is included in the new medical guidelines for treating mitral regurgitation

  • Procedures may vary from person to person, but patients are usually released from the hospital within 2 to 3 days

  • You should experience improvement in your symptoms of mitral regurgitation and quality of life soon after your procedure



The MitraClip device is a small clip that is attached to your mitral valve. It treats mitral regurgitation by allowing your mitral valve to close more completely, helping to restore normal blood flow through your heart.
