ABOUT 'BEAT YOUR A-FIB'...


"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"



ABOUT A-FIB.COM...


"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

Huge Growth in Number of EPs Doing Catheter Ablations, But All EPs Are Not Equal

by Steve Ryan, PhD

Back in 2002 when we started A-Fib.com, we listed only seven centers doing catheter ablations. Today our FREE Directory of Doctors and Medical Centers lists over 1,800 EPs from all corners of the US and many others from around the world. (We only list EPs who have the “Clinical Cardiac Electrophysiology” certification and who register “AF Ablation” as part of their “Practice Information”. )

It’s very encouraging for A-Fib patients to see so many new EPs and centers performing catheter ablations. Few medical advances have been so rapidly and widely accepted.

Has This Growth Been Too Fast?

This rapid progress raises some issues. Has this growth been too fast? Are all these new EPs getting the training and hands-on experience they need? In fact, some EPs currently performing ablations have never passed their Clinical Cardiology Certification.

One measure of competency is the rate of complications following an ablation procedure. A study of Medicare data is very revealing about in-hospital complications following catheter ablations.

Low Volume Operators Have the Highest Complication Rates

What was the biggest predictor of complications? The centers with an A-Fib ablation volume of less than 25 ablations per year had the highest rate of compilations.

Imagine what my ablation would have looked like and turned out had I gone to an inexperienced EP?” −Travis Van Slooten.

Shocking―the facts get worse. … Continue reading this report…->

2015 AF Symposium by Steve S. Ryan, A-Fib.com

Steve Ryan at the 2015 AF Symposium

Steve Ryan 2015 AF Symposium

20th Annual AF Symposium

Mechanisms and New Directions in Therapy, January 8-10, 2015, Orlando, FL

My AF Symposium reports are in three parts (click title to go to that page):

Part 1: News & Views from the 2015 AF Symposium (below)
Part 2:  My Brief Reports
Part 3:  My In-depth Reports Written for Patients

Looking for other AF Symposium reports? see Steve’s AF Symposiums Summaries By Year

The annual AF Symposium (formerly called the Boston AF Symposium) is an intensive and highly focused three-day scientific forum that brings together the world’s leading medical scientists, researchers and cardiologists to share the most recent advances in the treatment of atrial fibrillation.

I attend in order to offer A-Fib.com readers the most up-to-date A-Fib research findings and developments that may impact the treatment choices of patients who are seeking their A-Fib cure (or best outcome).

News & Views From the 2015 AF Symposium

Orlando Mariott slide

One of four water slides at the Orlando World Center Marriott.

by Steve S. Ryan, PhD

The Symposium was held at the Orlando World Center Marriott, the largest Marriott hotel in the world which is a tourist attraction in itself. With 2,009 rooms, all 1,000+ Symposium attendees could stay at the same hotel (unlike when the Symposium was held in Boston when going outside was a necessity rather than an option.)

The grounds were relaxing as well as beautiful and a fun walk after spending 10-11-hour days concentrating on heavy-duty, content-rich talks.

I was surprised at how crazy the air conditioning was at the Marriott. In the morning in the large meeting room you’d be freezing and need a heavy jacket. Then in the afternoon sometimes they’d shut off the AC and you’d be sweltering and stinky and need a shower before the next meeting.

As a journalist, my registration fee was waived, but all my other costs were out-of-pocket. So, I stayed at the Motel 6 down the road for $30+ a night (with AARP discount) and drove a Payless rental car from the Orlando airport for $13.00/day plus taxes (I brought my own GPS for the car). But the Marriott did get me for $18.00/day to park in their garage.

About the 2016 AF Symposium

Dr. Jeremy Ruskin, Director of the Symposium, announced that next year the AF Symposium hotel location will move to the Orlando Hyatt Regency and will be scheduled a week later in the month, January 14-16, 2016. The later date will help avoid the mad dash right after the New Year holiday to get organized, make travel plans, etc.

Celebrating the 20th Anniversary of the AF Symposium: A Nostalgic Look Back

David Keane MD Ireland

David Keane

Dr. David Keane of St. Vincent’s University Hospital in Dublin, Ireland, gave a heart-warming, nostalgic presentation about how the Boston/Orlando AF Symposium has developed and evolved over 20 years.

He found a wealth of old photos starting when the Symposium was only a one-day meeting for local doctors. He showed an ‘excited’ Dr. Jeremy Ruskin back in 1995 initiating the first AF Symposium in Boston.

Jeremy Ruskin, MD

J N Ruskin

Dr. Keane related how Dr. Jeremy Ruskin would spend his summers inviting speakers, developing topics, constantly planning and improving the content of the AF Symposium. “You have no idea just how much effort Jeremy Ruskin puts into these meetings.”

One of the most surprising slides was of a draft of a proposed schedule by Symposium Director, Jeremy N. Ruskin. It read “JNR Draft 58”!

[The next day I happened to be walking down the hallway with Dr. Ruskin. He mentioned that this year’s Symposium only took 70 drafts! His own talk was the first to go on the chopping block to make room for another speaker.]

Dr. Ruskin said he has probably put in about 10,000 hours over 20 years planning the Symposiums! Many speakers offered their heartfelt thanks to Dr. Ruskin for his incredible efforts.Steve Ryan

Steve S. Ryan photo: another surprising slide was one of me! I was so shocked I can’t tell you what was said. I think it was something about patients who attend the AF Symposium. (I’ve been writing reports on the AF Symposiums since 2003―twelve years!)

FAQs Coping With Your A-Fib Day-to-Day Issues

FAQs A-Fib afibFAQs Coping With Your Atrial Fibrillation: Day-to-Day Issues

Coping with your Atrial Fibrillation means a patient and their family have many and varied questions. Here are answers to the most frequently asked questions about dealing with the day-to-day issues of having Atrial Fibrillation. (Click on the question to jump to the answer.)

1.  I like my cardiologist, but he has not talked about me seeing an Electrophysiologist. Should I ask for a second opinion from another cardiologist?”
2. Is there any way to predict when I’m going to have an A-Fib attack?”
3. Should I exercise when in A-Fib or skip it and rest? Can I damage my heart if I exercise in A-Fib?”
4. How long do I have before I go into chronic or permanent A-Fib? I know it’s harder to cure. My A-Fib episodes seem to be getting longer and more frequent.”
5. They want to do an Atrial Flutter-only ablation, will that help if I possibly have A-Fib as well?”
6.  Is smoking medical marijuana or using Marinol going to trigger or cause A-Fib? Will it help my A-Fib?
7.  “During an A-Fib episode, when should I call paramedics (911 in the US) and/or take my husband to the hospital? I’m petrified. I need a plan.”
8. I have a lot of extra beats and palpitations (PVCs or PACs) They seem to proceed an A-Fib attack. What can or should I do about them?”
9.   “How do I know which is the best A-Fib treatment option for me?”
10. When my husband has an Atrial Fibrillation episode, what can I do for him? How can I be supportive?”
11. How can I tell when I’m in A-Fib or just having something like indigestion?”
12.What kind of monitors are available for atrial fibrillation? Is there any way to tell how often I get A-Fib or how long the episodes last?”
13. I’m an athlete with A-Fib and have a naturally slow heart rate. My doctor says I need a pacemaker because my heart rate is too slow.”
14. Can excess iron in the blood cause Atrial Fibrillation? How do I know? If I have Iron Overload Deficiency (IOD), what can I do about it?”
15. Can too little iron in the blood (Anemia) cause Atrial Fibrillation? What can I do about iron deficiency?”
16.Is it possible to have a single A-Fib attack and not have any others? I had a single episode of A-Fib and was successfully converted in the ER with meds.”
17. “My mom is 94 with A-Fib. Are there consumer heart rate monitors she can wear to alert me at work if her heart rate exceeds a certain number?”
18. Can I have A-Fib when my heart rate stays between 50-60 BPM? My doctor tells me I have A-Fib, but I don’t always have a rapid heart rate.”
19. I’m in Chronic A-Fib. Can I improve my circulation, without having to undergo a Catheter Ablation or Surgery?”

20. “In one of your articles it said that having an ablation was better than living in A-Fib. I’ve been taking 75 mg of propafenone 3X/day for seven years and have only had 5 A-Fib attacks in 7 years. If your article means all types of A-Fib [including Paroxysmal], then I will consider an ablation.

21. “Both my uncles and my Dad have Atrial Fibrillation. I’m 50 years old and so far I don’t have A-Fib (yet), but I’m worried. How can I avoid developing A-Fib? Can dietary changes help? Or lifestyle changes?

22. In case I have a stroke, what does my family need to know to help me? (I’m already on a blood thinner.)  What can I do to improve my odds of surviving it?”

FAQs Coping with A-Fib: Electrophysiologists

 FAQs Coping with A-Fib: EPs

FAQs A-Fib afib1. “I like my Cardiologist, but he has not talked about me seeing an Electrophysiologist. Should I ask for a second opinion from another Cardiologist?”

Most definitely seek a second opinion about your atrial fibrillation and treatment options. But get a second opinion from an Electrophysiologist, rather than a cardiologist.

An Electrophysiologist is a cardiologist who specializes in heart rhythm problems (the electrical functions of the heart). In fact, it’s easy to find a local Electrophysiologist yourself. The website of the Heart Rhythm Society has a feature called Finding A Heart Rhythm Specialist. When you type in your U.S state and city, or country, the site gives you a list of Electrophysiologists in your area. However, not all Electrophysiologists specialize in A-Fib.

For an in-depth discussion about selecting an electrophysciologist and a step-by-step guide, see the A-Fib.com sections Finding the Right Doctor for You and Your A-Fib, Questions For Doctors and Directory of Doctors and Facilities. We offer many resources to help you select the right Electrophysiologist for you and your treatment goals.

Visiting the EP Labs as an Observer Instead of as a Patient

SSR at BAFS 2014by Steve S. Ryan, PhD

Every year I attend the Boston A-Fib Symposium to learn the state of the art in Atrial Fibrillation research and development. This year it was held in Orlando, Florida. (See my reports at 2014 BAFS.)
I traveled to Florida a few days early so I could make a couple of side trips. I was privileged to visit with two of the best Electrophysiologists (EPs) in Florida, Dr. Robert Fishel of Florida Electrophysiology Associates in Atlantis, FL,  and Dr. Sidney Peykar of Cardiac Arrhythmia Institute in Port Charlotte, FL.
I visited their EP labs and observed each doctor as he treated A-Fib patients with Pulmonary Vein Ablation/Isolation (PVI) and other procedures. It was a great learning experience for me.

Day 1: Dr. Robert Fishel in Atlantis, FL

Dr. Robert Fishel graciously allowed me to observe him performing ablations at JFK Medical Center in Atlantis, FL. I had to wear scrubs, a mask, radiation vest, booties and a hair cap. (And I had to keep out of the way.)

Dr Robert Fishel and Steve S. Ryan. PhD

Dr. Fishel would do one ablation, then move to another EP lab where the patient was already anesthetized and everything was already set up for him to do another ablation. Then he moved to an operating room where he replaced a pacemaker. He continued these tightly schedules procedures all day long. (He never seemed to get tired. I’m fairly athletic, but had trouble keeping up with him.)

Video Dr Fishel - Treatments of Afib

VIDEO: “Inside the EP Lab During a Catheter Ablation Procedure with Dr. Robert S. Fishel.”

One of his patients was in persistent A-Fib which is usually harder to cure. Dr. Fishel had to make extra ablation lines, but still made the patient A-Fib free in around two hours.

After observing 2-3 procedures, I couldn’t figure out how he was doing the transseptal punctures without using monitors. Only after I was back in the rental car, did it dawn on me that he was doing the transseptal punctures by feel and from his years of experience.

VIDEO: We have a video of Dr. Fishel in our A-Fib Video Library, see “Inside the EP Lab During a Catheter Ablation Procedure with Dr. Robert S. Fishel.”

Day 2: Dr. Sidney Peykar in Port Charlotte, FL

The next day I drove to Fawcett Memorial Hospital in Port Charlotte, FL, where Dr. Sidney Peykar kindly hosted me and allowed me to observe him during several PVI procedures.

He used slightly different equipment and mapping technology than Dr. Fishel. He used a vascular ultrasound probe to insert the catheter in a vein in the groin and Transesophageal Echocardiogram (TEE) for transseptal guidance and to rule out a left atrial appendage clot.

(With the help of Drs. Peykar and Fishel, I will write an extensive description of the stages of an ablation and all the equipment and personnel involved, so that patients can better understand and not be fearful of a PVI procedure.)

Steve S. Ryan, PhD and Dr Sidney PeykarAfter several PVIs, he moved to another procedure room and did an electrical cardioversion on a patient. He returned him to normal sinus rhythm after only one shock.

Dr. Peykar and I also talked about a particular area of concern: A-Fib patients with Sleep Apnea. Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is prevalent among patients with A-Fib and has prompted significant research to understand the relationship. Because Sleep Apnea can easily cause a recurrence of A-Fib after a successful PVI, Dr. Peykar insists his patients with Sleep Apnea receive treatment (like using a CPAP machine at bedtime). (BTW: He’s quite informed on the topic and had all the relevant research articles on his smart phone which he emailed to me with a few key strokes.)

Takeaway

What impressed me most about both doctors was how relatively easy and uncomplicated it is for good EPs to make patients A-Fib free by the end of the procedure (with no apparent complications, at least not while I was there.)

I’m grateful to both Dr. Peykar and Dr. Fishel for letting me experience several PVI procedures from the doctor’s perspective (my only previous experience was years ago as an A-Fib patient).GFX TV set Lights Camera Action

BTW: This first hand experience in the EP lab better prepared me for first day of the 2014 Boston A-Fib Symposium when seven procedures were performed LIVE via satellite. See my report: Live via Satellite: Seven Ablation Cases from The Netherlands, France, Italy, Germany, Russia, Boston & Michigan, USA.

US Centers Performing the Hybrid Surgery/Ablation – a List from A-Fib.com

Steves List logo 200 pix at 96 resUS Centers performing the Hybrid Surgery/Ablation Procedure

There are very few centers offering the Hybrid Surgery/Ablation approach because it’s relatively new, and because it’s extremely rare to have the tremendous expertise necessary in both catheter ablation and surgical A-Fib ablation at the same institution.

Note: Similar multidisciplinary ablation techniques are called ‘hybrid ablation technique’, ‘convergence process’, ‘Convergent Maze Procedure’ and ‘Convergent Ablation”’.

Finding the Right Doctor for You and Your A-Fib

Find the Right Doctor for patients with Atrial Fibrillation, A-Fib, a fib, afib.

Finding the Right Doctor for You and Your A-Fib

When your family doctor first suspects you have A-Fib, they will probably send you to a cardiologist, a doctor who specializes in the heart. The cardiologist will probably put you on different medications (called Drug Therapy) over the next six months to a year or more to see if any of these medications will stop or control your A-Fib.

But current A-Fib medications are not very effective and often have bad side effects. In addition, time is of the essence in treating A-Fib. The longer you wait, the more your A-Fib may “remodel” your heart (i.e., change it physically and electrically). Drug therapy may not be the best option for you.

To seek treatments beyond medications, you may need to change doctors. You should see an Electrophysiologist (EP)—a cardiologist who specializes in the electrical activity of the heart and in the diagnosis and treatment of heart rhythm disorders.

 How to Start Your Search

To be cured of your A-Fib, you need to find the best doctor for you and your treatment goals. You need a doctor who will work with you to create a treatment plan—a path to finding your cure or best outcome.

To find the right doctor for you, start by creating a list of possible doctors to consider. Seek recommendations from your GP and from other A-Fib patients (see Resources/Bulletin Boards for a list of online discussion groups). If you know nurses or support staff who work in the cardiology field or in Electrophysiology (EP) labs, they are often a great resource.

Instead of a cardiologist, you should see an Electrophysiologist (EP)—a cardiologist who specializes in the electrical activity of the heart and in the diagnosis and treatment of heart rhythm disorders.

 And use the internet. To find a local Electrophysiologist yourself, we recommend the Heart Rhythm Society website and their feature called ‘Finding a Heart Rhythm Specialist’. ‘Check’ the box “to limit the results to Fellows of the Heart Rhythm Society (FHRS)”. (EPs with the FHRS designation have been recognized by their peers and are experienced heart rhythm professionals working in the field of electrophysiology and/or pacing; see more about FHRS below).

When you type in a U.S. city and state, (or country) the site gives you a list of Electrophysiologists in your area. Check for their list of specialties (not all EPs perform PVIs; some focus on pacing/pacemakers, or clinical research, for example). Look for additional information such as which medical insurance they accept.

Unfortunately this FHRS list leaves out many younger A-Fib EPs who are doing excellent work. (We haven’t found an unbiased way of identifying these younger A-Fib doctors and welcome suggestions as to how to do this,)

Start your research with a notebook and a three-ring binder…to organize the information you will be collecting.

This A-Fib.com Directory of Doctors and Facilities is an evolving list of the physicians and medical centers in the U.S. and internationally treating patients with atrial fibrillation. It is offered as a service and convenience to A-Fib patients.

In addition, I’ve compiled several rosters of doctors by specialty called Steve’s Lists’.

For a list of EPs with the FHRS credential listed by state and city, see Steve’s Lists: Doctors by Specialties and more specifically, US EPs with FHRS-designation Performing A-Fib Ablations by US State/City.

We strongly encourage you to get in the habit of keeping a copy of every test result you get in your three-ring binder. Don’t leave your doctor’s office or hospital without a copy of every test they perform. Or if the test result isn’t immediately available, have them mail it to you.

 Organize Your Research

Keep your medical records and notes handy

To find the right doctor to cure your A-Fib, start your research with a notebook and a three-ring binder or a file folder.

You need to organize the information you will be collecting: printouts of information from the internet, copies of documents from your local public library or medical center library, notes from phone calls, and answers to “interview” questions during doctor consultations.

Obtain Copies of Your Medical Records, Tests, and Images

Your 3-ring binder, or file folder is also where to collect copies of all your lab tests, doctor visits, etc.

We strongly encourage you to get in the habit of keeping a copy of every test result you get in your three-ring binder. Don’t leave your doctor’s office or hospital without a copy of every test they perform. Or if the test result isn’t immediately available, have them mail it to you.

If you need to request copies of some medical records, read our article, How to Request Copies of your Medical Records. We give you three ways to request your medical records from your doctors and medical providers.

Later, when you are ready to interview new doctors, you will want to send each office a packet with your medical records, test results, and images or X-rays. When you arrive at the EP’s office, make sure they have indeed received your up-to-date medical records. As a back-up, bring your own three-ring binder with the originals.

 Researching Doctors and Centers

Don’t rely on a single online source when researching and selecting doctors.

Credential Acronyms While researching EPs, you will notice acronyms following a physician’s name. For an explanation of these credentials and acronyms, see our article Physician Credentials.

Be cautious of all doctor informational listings you find on web sites (yes, including this one). Doctors may be listed or appear most prominently because they pay for that privilege (but not so at A-Fib.com).

Don’t depend entirely on the typical doctor informational websites or online directories. A doctor with a good lawyer can keep their name free of sanctions and board actions. And the patient surveys on these sites aren’t very scientific and lend themselves to manipulation (one can get friends or paid people to respond to the survey). Consult several sites.

Please bear in mind than not all EPs perform and have sufficient experience in Pulmonary Vein Ablation. See my “Choosing the Right Doctor: 7 Questions You’ve Got to Ask” page and my list  Doctors/Facilities/Steve’s Lists/EPs Performing Pulmonary Vein Ablation to help find the right Electrophysiologist for you.

Over the last several years there has been an astounding and welcome growth of US centers and doctors who do Pulmonary Vein Isolation (PVI) procedures. But some are low volume centers with limited facilities and training who may do as little as 20 PVAs a year.

It’s tough to quantify experience with specific numbers. But if a doctor only does 20 PVAs a year, that may not be enough to maintain and develop ablation skills. A typical experienced EP does over 50 PVIs a year. For more see our article, Considering a Catheter Ablation? Know Complication Rates When Choosing Your Doctor.

 How to Find the Information

You must do your own homework. To narrow down your list of prospective doctors you will want to scrutinize their credentials. You’ll be looking for information such as:

• Where did they attend medical school?
• Where did they do their residency program?
• What board certifications have they received?
• What are their hospital affiliations?
Where and from whom did the doctor receive special training to treat A-Fib?

On the negative side:

• Have they lost privileges with any hospitals?
• Have they been sanctioned by any medical entity?

To research each doctor, consult the internet or your local library. The following online resources may be helpful.

The Heart Rhythm Society ‘Find a Specialist online searchable directory; Also: includes the doctor’s specialties, insurance accepted, and more
The American Board of Medical Specialists (ABMS) Directory of Board Certified Medical Specialists
The American Board of Internal Medicine. http://www.abim.org/services/verify-a-physician.aspx; to check on a doctor’s certification
The Cardiothoracic Surgeon’s Network Directory of Surgeons
HealthGrades, Vitals, and RateMDs: independent healthcare ratings organizations which provides physician’s profile, education, awards & recognition, insurance accepted, hospital affiliations, and malpractice and sanctions. But be aware that these sites usually don’t review a doctor’s competence.
Online discussion groups and forums; read what other A-Fib patients have written about specific doctors. (see Resources/Bulletin Boards.)
FindACase™ http://co.findacase.com

 Create Your ‘Short’ List

Narrow down your list to the top three-to-five doctors. The next step is to get specific information from each doctor or their office personnel (call their physician assistant, nurse practitioner or office manager). Hint: you get better service if you ask for a specific doctor by name or for their physician assistant or nurse. (When you call, sound like you know the doctor.)

Note: some EPs have a “referrals only” policy, which means they won’t talk to you directly. You have to be referred by a cardiologist or a family doctor.

Gather the following Information about each prospective doctor:

  1. How long have you been performing Pulmonary Vein Ablation for my type of A-Fib? How experienced are you with RF and/or Cryo? How many procedures do you perform a year?
  2. What is your success rate with PVI/PVA? How do you define ‘success’? (No A-Fib and drug-free, for example.)
  3. What kind of complications have you had? What kind of precautions do you take to prevent complications like Atrial Esophageal Fistula?
  4. What kind of A-Fib ablation procedures and equipment do you use? What would you use for my type of A-Fib? 
  5. Do you refer patients to surgeons for a Cox Maze or Mini-Maze operation?

Most doctors and centers will welcome these questions and respond frankly to you. If they don’t, that may be a sign you need to look elsewhere. For a list of specific questions to ask doctors and how to interpret their answers, see my Questions for Doctors page.

Be Cautious: information from the doctor or their practice is ‘self-reporting data’. There is no independent entity to verify the doctor’s or their office’s responses to you. If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.

If the doctor or their office seems reluctant to give you the info you need, it might be wise to talk with another doctor.

 Your Consultation Appointments

Select your top three doctors. Now you are ready to set up a consultation appointment with each doctor. Think of this as an interview. Don’t worry, doctors are also ‘interviewing’ you to determine if they can help you.

Send your medical records beforehand

Beforehand, send each doctor a packet with your medical records. When you arrive at the doctors offices’, make sure they have indeed received your medical records. As a back-up, bring your own three-ring binder with the originals.

Take Notes During Your “Interview”

During your interview appointment, take lots of notes. In addition, consider using an audio recorder to help you remember things. (Most doctors don’t mind, but always ask permission beforehand.)

You may want to take along a trusted friend or family member. As needed, your ‘personal advocate’ can question the doctor for you and verify your list of questions have been answered. Afterwards they can help you evaluate the doctor’s answers, discuss anything that’s unclear and comment on the doctor’s demeanor.

Never go to any doctor appointment alone. Always carry notepad and pen to take lots of notes.

Our ‘Questions for Doctors Worksheet’

To help you scrutinize prospective doctors we’ve written a set of 7 interview questions. The questions help you find the right doctor for your treatment goals. Use our Questions for Doctors Worksheetto interview and question each prospective doctor. (Download the FREE PDF and save to your hard drive. Then, print a worksheet for each doctor you interview.) 

After Your Interviews

Back home, compare answers and your notes about each doctor. To ‘interpret’ the doctors’ answers, see our article, “Choosing the Right Doctor: 7 Questions You’ve Got to Ask (And What Their Answers Mean)“.  We’ve included the various responses you might receive, and what each response means to you when searching for the right doctor for you and your treatment goals.

Also Assess the Doctor’s Manner and Personality

You’ll also want to assess the doctor’s manner and personality. Is this someone who will work with you? Someone who listens to how A-Fib makes you feel? Does this doctor inspire confidence? Is this someone you feel comfortable with and trust with your health care? Does he/she respect you? Women in particular should be wary of condescending behavior. “It’s all in your mind.” “Take a Valium.” Women in the US often don’t receive the proper diagnosis and treatment of their A-Fib.

Rudeness, bad temper, boorish behavior, etc. from a doctor, no matter how highly recommended, should be a red flag for you. That kind of behavior is not just personally offensive but can be dangerous for your health.

Does the poor behavior also extend to how the doctor treats his staff? Patients of doctors “who don’t show respect for their medical staff have much higher rates of adverse effects, than patients of their more congenial colleagues.” “As a patient, you’re also a member of the health-care team,” explains Gerald B. Hickson, MD of Vanderbilt University Medical Center.1 If your doctor is condescending or dismisses your concerns, you’re getting poor care. If a doctor is too busy to talk with you and answer your concerns, he’s probably too busy to take care of you properly.

But do give the doctor a break. They may be having a bad day or may have heard your questions too many times before. So, say something, speak up! Or contact the patient-relations representative at the heart center. They want to know if a doctor is rude (those patients are more likely to sue!). Once a doctor’s bad behavior is called to his attention, they are likely to do better. And so will you.

File your worksheets and other notes in your binder for future reference (you might want a second opinion).

 About Catheter Ablation

Caution:A Pulmonary Vein Isolation Ablation PVA/I is the most challenging, demanding and complex catheter ablation an Electrophysiologist performs. But surprisingly, no specific certification is required. Any EP is allowed to do PVIs. When doing your basic research, make sure the EP has obtained “Clinical Cardiac Electrophysiology” Certification. It’s surprising how many EPs never pass this exam but still do PVIs. Certification in “General Cardiology” or “Internal Medicine” are more basic and not what you’re looking for.

Patients are advised to consider the more experienced EPs in the PVI field. One indicator is the credential “FHRS” after a doctor’s name. A Fellow of the Heart Rhythm Society (FHRS), is an EP certified by the American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM) in clinical cardiac electrophysiology (CCEP), has letters of support from current FHRS members, and has been vetted by the HRS Membership Committee.

According to the Heart Rhythm Society:

“The FHRS designation distinguishes members among health care providers for their specialization in electrophysiology, clarifies the referral process, and serves as a credential for quality care for patients, media and government. FHRS members are characterized by advanced training, certification, and prominence in research.”2

New Article icon - red-heart-negative 75 sq at 96 resSince Pulmonary Vein Ablation (Isolation) is a relatively new procedure, select facilities and doctors who are more experienced with it. For more, see our article, Considering a Catheter Ablation? Know Complication Rates When Choosing Your Doctor.

In this author’s opinion, although certain centers and doctors are more experienced than others, there is no first and second tier of A-Fib doctors. In general, Electrophysiologists performing Pulmonary Vein Ablation (Isolation) are highly trained, experienced and technically gifted. Your chances of being cured by a PVA(I) are very good at most A-Fib medical centers.

 About Maze or Mini-Maze

After your consultation, your Electrophysiologist may recommend a Cox Maze or Mini-Maze operation for your A-Fib. Your EP will probably recommend a short list of surgeons. You will conduct the same research for finding the right surgeon as you did for finding the right EP. Unfortunately, we’re not aware of a database that lists A-Fib Surgeons by geographic area, except for the list on A-Fib.com (see Steve’s Lists/Surgeons Performing Cox-Maze and Mini-Maze Operations).

Caution: Any surgeon is allowed to perform a Maze and Mini-Maze operation, but not all have a great deal of experience doing it. There are currently no training courses or certification exams specifically required for Maze and Mini-Maze surgeries. (The same is true to some extent for catheter ablation.)

A study from the Un. of Michigan found that surgical death rates are directly related to experience with the particular operation being performed. You are four times more likely to die if your surgeon performs your operation only rarely, compared to a surgeon who performs it regularly.3 Ask your surgeon or his office how often he performs the Maze and/or Mini Maze. Call other doctors in this field to see how often they perform Mazes. Be cautious about a surgeon who performs Maze operations far less than the average.

If a surgeon specializes in exactly your condition and if 50% or more of his practice relates to your type of A-Fib, they may be a good choice.

It’s hard to establish a specific number that indicates sufficient experience and skill level, but here’s an example that may help, The death rate after pancreas surgery is 14.7% for surgeons who average fewer than two operations a year. It is 4.6% for those who do four or more. A survey done by the New York State Department of Health found that hospitals with surgeons who did relatively few operations had patient-mortality rates that were four times higher than the state average.4

 STEVE’S LIST: US Surgeons Performing Maze and Mini-Maze Operations

For surgeons performing Maze/Mini-Maze operations, see Doctors & Facilities/Steve’s Lists Doctors by Specialties and more specifically, US Surgeons performing Maze and Mini-Maze operations.

 Other Considerations

You may also want to consider the mind set and attitudes of Surgeons vs. Electrophysiologists.

Keep in mind: a surgeon’s primary concern is in performing a successful operation, whereas EPs have devoted their careers to dealing with heart rhythm problems. The EP’s primary concern is creating a ‘treatment plan’—an organized path to finding your A-Fib cure or best outcome.

In an ideal world, a surgeon would work with and consult with an EP, especially if the surgery didn’t work. But, with certain exceptions, that generally isn’t the case today.

Advantages of the Convergent (Hybrid) Procedure

Advantages of the Convergent Procedure

UNC Cardiac Surgery and Electrophysiology Services

Andy C. Kiser, MD  Paul Mounsey, MD, Updated March 2014

(Reproduced with permission.)

Cardiac surgeons continually strive toward less invasive procedures which avoid approaches like full median sternotomies and thoracotomies. However, reports of minimally invasive cardiac surgical procedures may include hemi-sternotomies, mini-thoracotomies, or full median sternotomies without cardiopulmonary bypass.

True minimally invasive procedures must not only be defined by the size of the incision, but also by the invasiveness into the patient’s daily lifestyle and the impact on their quality of life.

There are a variety of techniques and devices in use for the surgical treatment of atrial fibrillation (AF). The current gold standard for the surgical treatment has been the Cox cut and sew maze procedure. There have been variations through the years leading to a host of other surgical AF procedures, such as the Wolf mini-maze1, practiced by many surgeons. Other techniques create myocardial lesions using some form of radiofrequency energy, laser, cryothermy or high-frequency ultrasound. All of these techniques require access to the heart through either a full sternotomy or less-invasive approaches with incisions on the left and/or right side of the chest. Some techniques require cardiopulmonary bypass and sometimes cardioplegia to stop the heart entirely.2,3 Until recently, no current technique or device provided access to the posterior left atrium directly.

Pericardioscopy is a totally endoscopic technique that provides direct visualization of, and access to, the epicardial surface of the beating heart without the need for cardiopulmonary bypass or prolonged postoperative recovery. Unlike a subxyphoid approach, pericardioscopy provides access to the heart via the central tendon of the diaphragm. This allows direct vision of the posterior cardiac structures with minimal hemodynamic compromise. Such access and visualization of the epicardial cardiac surface has enabled epicardial ablation techniques, like the Convergent Procedure, as a treatment for atrial fibrillation.4,5 Pericardioscopy eliminates the need for sternotomy or thoracotomy when access to the epicardial surface is necessary.

Convergent Procedure - Transdiaphragmatic Pericardioscipic Access

Transdiaphragmatic Pericardioscipic Access

 

SIMULTANEOUS ENDOCARDIAL AND EPICARDIAL ABLATION

The surgical treatment of atrial fibrillation (AF) is based upon the creation of an anatomical pattern of myocardial scar. The Corridor Procedure 6, the Radial Maze Procedure,6 and the Cox maze I-III7,8 are anatomical patterns designed to disrupt the re-entry circuits of AF by dividing the atria into non-conductive segments. Electrophysiologists, in comparison, use endocardial catheters and electrodes to identify the triggers causing AF and direct their treatments towards these foci of abnormal electrical activity in the atria. The individual success of these approaches, either surgical or endocardial, has been limited by technical complexity and/or less than desirable outcomes.

A truly successful and adoptable AF treatment has always seemed to be just out of reach. The acclaimed gold standard cut and sew maze procedure reports exceptional outcomes but remains a complex procedure that is rarely performed.9,10 The mini-maze11 and pulmonary vein isolation12reduce procedural complexity by decreasing the number of lesions and by eliminating cardiopulmonary bypass. However, both the surgeons and the cardiologists have demonstrated that when treatment is limited to the left atrium, outcomes suffer as a consequence.13,14 The endocardial, catheter-based AF ablations, not unlike the surgical procedures, remain long and technically difficult procedures performed by relatively few electrophysiologists. The high rate of repeat procedures and less than desirable long-term outcomes have been disappointing.15 Unfortunately, surgeons and cardiologists seldom collaborate in the development of new technologies and innovative approaches to overcome these individual procedural shortcomings.

The Convergent Procedure has been developed by a multidisciplinary team of cardiologist and cardiac surgeons to address the procedural and communication barriers. The Convergent Procedure is the simultaneous creation of a surgeon’s PEX epicardial ablation pattern and electrophysiologist’s endocardial ablation pattern (Figure 1).

Convergent Procedure - Convergent Procedure Lesion Pattern

Convergent Procedure Lesion Pattern

 

The surgeon’s ability to effectively create visible, and therefore contiguous, epicardial ablation lines has greatly reduced the amount of endocardial tissue which must be ablated to complete a successful trans-septal catheter procedure. The integration of a surgeon’s anatomical approach to AF with the physiological approach of the electrophysiologist’s has led to the development of the Convergent Procedure.

This convergence of technologies and expertise provides or allows for:

1. The creation of a complete, bi-atrial, endocardial and epicardial ablation pattern without a chest incision or cardiopulmonary bypass;

2. Intra-operative metrics to confirm procedural success;

3. Integrated patient care by cardiology and cardiac surgery; and

4. Decreased length of hospital stay and the number of repeat ablation procedures.

AN INTEGRATED APPROACH TO THE AF PATIENT

At the UNC Center for Heart & Vascular Care, we have created a multidisciplinary service that integrates the care of Arrhythmia patients. Evaluation of each case by the multidisciplinary team of arrhythmia experts ensures an individualized, yet consensus, treatment plan. Without this integrated approach, the best treatment option may not be available or may require much longer wait times, more travel and more inconvenience and delay for the patient.

The patient’s clinical presentation is vitally important to developing the multidisciplinary treatment plan. Left atrial size, AF type and AF duration are significant contributory factors. We advocate a 24-hour Holter monitor on all patients under evaluation to document the degree of AF burden. Additional evaluation includes a trans-thoracic echocardiogram and cardiac catheterization or stress test to exclude structural heart disease in the setting of AF.

The consensus opinion by the Heart Rhythm Society Task Force states that, “stand-alone AF surgery should be considered for symptomatic AF patients who prefer a surgical approach, have failed one or more attempts at catheter ablation, or are not candidates for catheter ablation.” Left atrial size and AF duration are important factors in this decision process. When the left atrium is larger than 6.0 cm or the duration of AF is greater than 5 years, the long term success for the Cut and Sew maze procedure are under 80% (Figure 2). It is difficult for the electrophysiologist to consistently and effectively complete pulmonary vein isolation when the left atrium is greater than 5.0 cm. Therefore, when a patient has paroxysmal AF and the left atrium is under 4.5-5.0 cm, we recommend percutaneous catheter ablation. In this population, simple pulmonary vein isolation may be effective in over 80% of patients.16

Patients with paroxysmal AF and a left atrium greater than 4.5 cm and those with persistent and long-standing persistent AF demonstrate the best outcomes when a bi-atrial lesion pattern is created. Surgeons who have experience with minimally invasive approaches choose the ablation technology best suited for their technique. Whichever approach and device is used, a comprehensive lesion pattern of contiguous and transmural lesions are essential. Persistence and intra-operative verification of lesion and pattern integrity is crucial. The Convergent Procedure has established new criteria for lesion integrity by the verification of procedural completion by endocardial electrophysiologic metrics. The Convergent Procedure is not complete until pulmonary vein isolation and posterior left atrial exclusion is confirmed, the coronary sinus is ablated, and a cavo-tricuspid isthmus lesion is created. These metrics provide confidence of procedural success and set new standards for the hybrid treatment of persistent and long-standing persistent AF.

Left: Success Decreases with Left Atrial Size>6.0cm; Right: AF Duration Predicts Sinus Rhythm Restoration Post Maze Procedure

Left: Success Decreases with Left Atrial Size>6.0cm; Right: AF Duration Predicts Sinus Rhythm Restoration Post Maze Procedure

 

Conclusion

There have been many minimally invasive approaches to treat AF, all based primarily upon the original work by Cox and his maze procedure. By integrating electrophysiology and cardiac surgery in a hybrid AF treatment, new procedural and perioperative standards have been established at our institution. The initial outcomes utilizing this multidisciplinary approach are excellent and patient satisfaction is overwhelmingly positive.

US Doctors Installing the Watchman Device – a List by A-Fib.com

Steves List logo 200 pix at 96 resUS EPs Installing the Watchman Device – by US State

If you are at high risk for stroke but can’t take anticoagulants, your doctor may suggest closing off the Left Atrial Appendage using an occluder such as the Watchman Device.

Update: After extensive clinical studies, the FDA approved Boston Scientific’s WATCHMAN™ LAA closure technology for use in the U.S. on March 13, 2015 (it has been available internationally since 2009). Boston Scientific has an excellent web site which lists centers implanting the Watchman device http://www.bostonscientific.com/en-US/products/laac-system/watchman-device/implanting-hospitals.html. On the far right hit the button “Find Implanting Center”. Doctors are listed only by the hospitals they work at rather than by their office and their normal contact phone number. (I had to use a magnifying glass to read the copy.)
However, this Boston Scientific site doesn’t distinguish between Electrophysiologists (EPs) certified in “Clinical Cardiac Electrophysiology” and Internists/Interventionalists who normally do not work inside the heart. These doctors are usually only certified in “Cardiovascular Disease,” “Internal Medicine,” or “Interventional Cardiology.” (They usually work primarily with pacemakers and/or stents and usually don’t perform A-Fib ablations.)

The following table lists only EPs who have passed their “Clinical Cardiac Electrophysiology” (CCE) certification. Though installing the Watchman Device is normally a relatively simple procedure, it might be advisable to have the Watchman Device installed only by EPs who have their CCE. They are usually more experienced at working inside the heart.

US Doctors Performing A-Fib ablations with FHRS Credential – List by A-Fib.com

Steves List logo 200 pix at 96 resUS Electrophysiologists Performing A-Fib Ablations with FHRS Credential- Listed by State and City

We’ve organized a list to help you select the right EP for you and your A-Fib treatment goals. To distinguish more experienced electrophysiologists (EPs) in the catheter ablation field, patients can look for the credential “FHRS” after a doctor’s name. (To learn more about FHRS and other physician credentials, see Physician Credentials and What They Mean.)

Keep in Mind: younger doctors may not have yet earned the FHRS credential but may have a great deal of experience, perform a high volume of successful PVIs, and have a proven track record.
