"This book is incredibly complete and easy-to-understand for anybody. I certainly recommend it for patients who want to know more about atrial fibrillation than what they will learn from doctors...."

Pierre Jaïs, M.D. Professor of Cardiology, Haut-Lévêque Hospital, Bordeaux, France

"Dear Steve, I saw a patient this morning with your book [in hand] and highlights throughout. She loves it and finds it very useful to help her in dealing with atrial fibrillation."

Dr. Wilber Su Cavanaugh Heart Center, Phoenix, AZ

"Your book [Beat Your A-Fib] is the quintessential most important guide not only for the individual experiencing atrial fibrillation and his family, but also for primary physicians, and cardiologists."

Jane-Alexandra Krehbiel, nurse, blogger and author "Rational Preparedness: A Primer to Preparedness"


"Steve Ryan's summaries of the Boston A-Fib Symposium are terrific. Steve has the ability to synthesize and communicate accurately in clear and simple terms the essence of complex subjects. This is an exceptional skill and a great service to patients with atrial fibrillation."

Dr. Jeremy Ruskin of Mass. General Hospital and Harvard Medical School

"I love your [A-fib.com] website, Patti and Steve! An excellent resource for anybody seeking credible science on atrial fibrillation plus compelling real-life stories from others living with A-Fib. Congratulations…"

Carolyn Thomas, blogger and heart attack survivor; MyHeartSisters.org

"Steve, your website was so helpful. Thank you! After two ablations I am now A-fib free. You are a great help to a lot of people, keep up the good work."

Terry Traver, former A-Fib patient

"If you want to do some research on AF go to A-Fib.com by Steve Ryan, this site was a big help to me, and helped me be free of AF."

Roy Salmon Patient, A-Fib Free; pacemakerclub.com, Sept. 2013

My First 2016 AF Reports: Start with 6 Live Catheter Ablations—Watching the Experts Around the World

My first three reports from the 2016 AF Symposium are ready and posted at 2016 AF Symposium: My Summary Reports Written for A-Fib Patients.

Watching LIVE Catheter Ablations

The first report is about watching LIVE catheter ablations (transmitted via the internet)—one of the most interesting and exciting features of the Symposium. Our panel of world-class electrophysiologists (EPs) were able to interact LIVE with the EPs lab doctors doing the ablations and ask questions.

The six ablations were streamed live from:

• Seoul, South Korea
• Munich, Germany
• Bordeaux, France
• Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
• Austin, Texas
• Boston, Massachusetts

On five floor-to-ceiling display screens (and additional floor monitors), I got to see the ECGI/ECVUE mapping system in action, learned about an epicardial ablation (outside the heart) to isolate an A-Fib signal from Bachman’s Bundle, and heard about an “Empirical” ablation (ablating areas known to produce A-Fib signals even though the patient is no longer in A-Fib).

Each of my summaries includes a brief patient description, treatment challenges, etc. and highlights of the procedure. I then include my personal ‘What was Most Impressive’ comments about each presentation.

Read my report at: 2016 AF Symposium: Six Live Catheter Ablations—Watching the Experts.
