Doctors & patients are saying about 'Beat Your A-Fib'...


"If I had [your book] 10 years ago, it would have saved me 8 years of hell.”

Roy Salmon, Patient, A-Fib Free,

"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

"...masterful. You managed to combine an encyclopedic compilation of information with the simplicity of presentation that enhances the delivery of the information to the reader. This is not an easy thing to do, but you have been very, very successful at it."

Ira David Levin, heart patient, 
Rome, Italy

"Within the pages of Beat Your A-Fib, Dr. Steve Ryan, PhD, provides a comprehensive guide for persons seeking to find a cure for their Atrial Fibrillation."

Walter Kerwin, MD, Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, Los Angeles, CA


Hybrid Surgery/Ablation Topic of the Multidisciplinary Arrhythmia Meeting (MAM)

Background: The Hybrid approach is an unusual team effort and is complementary in nature: the Surgeon works on the outside of the patient’s heart and the Electrophysiologist on the inside of the same patient’s heart.
Hybrid Surgery/Ablation is becoming an increasingly important and effective strategy for highly symptomatic patients with persistent atrial fibrillation or longstanding persistent atrial fibrillation who have failed one or two catheter ablations, and for the patient with a significantly enlarged left atrium.

Multidisciplinary Arrhythmia Meeting (MAM)

Multidisciplinary Arrhythmia Meeting (MAM) GFXThe goal of MAM is to improve interaction between cardiologists and surgeons through multiple examples of cooperation in dealing with Atrial Fibrillation. [Note: In the past, it’s been a rare occurrence for a surgeon to work with a cardiac electrophysiologist.]

Reporting for A-Fib.com

Cardiologists and surgeons from leading institutions in Europe, the US and Asia will discuss their experiences with hybrid simultaneous, hybrid stages, and multidisciplinary sequential approaches, and report their results.

Reporting from Zurich in September: I’ve been invited to attend this first Multidisciplinary Arrhythmia Meeting (MAM) by the organizers. I’ll be reporting on the key presentations and writing summary reports for our A-Fib.com readers.
