 FAQs A-Fib Ablations: Effectiveness 

Catheter Ablation

Catheter Ablation

“How effective is a successful catheter ablation for A-Fib? What should I expect?”

Catheter Ablation Restores Your Life!: There are few medical procedures more transformative than going from A-Fib to Normal Sinus Rhythm (NSR)! Ask any former symptomatic A-Fib patient who is now A-Fib free. It’s like your life has been restored. Few medical advances have been so rapidly and widely adapted as catheter ablation for A-Fib.

Improved Quality of Life: There is an immeasurable improvement in your quality of life. You feel better both physically and mentally. You can exercise normally again. Your general overall health and mental functioning improve, you function better physically, you feel more vital, you can handle physical and mental health stress better. Your blood pressure improves.

You no longer live in fear of the next A-Fib attack. Your Ejection Fraction improves (the ability of your heart to pump blood to your brain and the rest of your body). Your brain works better, you think more clearly, you can handle work and study challenges better. Your A-Fib “brain fog” goes away. You no longer live in fear of developing A-Fib dementia.

Better Than Drugs: You improve much more than people on antiarrhythmic drug therapy. You feel better than a life on A-Fib drugs. “Using quality of life as the primary endpoint of a trial for the first time, we demonstrated that pulmonary vein isolation (PVI) is significantly more effective than antiarrhythmic drug therapy,” according to authors of the CAPTAF clinical trial.

Improved Quantity of Life: Not only is the quality of your life improved, but the quantity as well. You can expect to live longer as well as have a more healthy and fulfilling life. Your long-term risks of death, stroke and dementia are reduced and become similar to people who’ve never had A-Fib.

In one study (CASTLE AF), death rate was reduced by an amazing 47%. Staying in sinus rhythm means you have a 60% reduced rate of cardiovascular mortality (risk of death from stroke and other cardiovascular events).

If you want to live longer (and more fully), have a catheter ablation.
