Here, Dr. William T. Brinkman discusses surgery for atrial fibrillation, including the concomitant maze, the classic Cox maze, the closed chest maze using the Dallas Lesion Set, and the new staged hybrid surgical ablation procedure. He also talked about surgical treatment of the left atrial appendage in order to decrease stroke risk.

Dr. Brinkman also introduced his new colleague, Dr. Kelley A. Hutcheson, who recently came from Barnes Jewish Hospital where she worked with Dr. Ralph Damiano, the protégé of Dr. James Cox, creator of the Cox maze procedure.

Learn how to get in rhythm and stay in rhythm by watching videos of the Atrial Fibrillation Patient Conference that was held in Dallas on November 2, 2013. At the conference, presentations by leading afib experts provided atrial fibrillation patients, families, and caregivers with the information to manage afib and get appropriate care.
