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,
Adelaide, Australia

"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

2022 AF Symposium: Pulsed Field Ablation Using a Focal Electrode Catheter

I’ve written a new report from the 2022 AF Symposium. The presentation included a video of the speaker performing the Pulsed Field Ablation. Note: PFA is not yet approved by the FDA, but is in clinical trials.

Dr. Atul Verma of Southlake Regional Health Center in Toronto, Canada presented his talk in a somewhat unusual format. He showed a pre-recorded case of him performing a Pulsed Field Ablation (PFA). Then while the video was playing, he would lower the volume and comment live to the audience. Several panelists and audience members also joined in offering comments during his presentation.

The Patient: Was in early persistent A-Fib, with a normal heart and normal-sized atrium. The goal was to isolate the patient’s Pulmonary Veins (PVs) and posterior wall using Pulsed Field Ablation (PFA).

The Ablation System: Dr. Verma performed an ablation of a patient using the Galaxy Centauri system. The Galaxy system allows EPs to use the same focal catheters and mapping systems they now use when they ablate using point-by-point Radio Frequency (RF) energy However, the Centauri generator produces PFA pulses instead of RF.

On the video, when Dr. Verma would make a point-by-point dot lesion using PFA…to continue reading my report. go to: Pulsed Field Ablation Using a Focal Electrode Catheter by Dr. Atul Verma.

For the background, concepts and treatment strategies associated with the evolving technology of Pulsed Field Ablation, see my 2020 AF Symposium report: Pulsed Field Ablation—Emerging Tech for Atrial Fibrillation.
