    It seemed to be a thorough review of the procedures and steps that
    are normally “required” or used to treat the problem. I thank Mellanie
    for making this information available.

    Donald L. Mallick,
    My wife (81) is dealing with her AFIB currently with medication. She did have one Catheter Ablation procedure, that did not appear to work from the beginning, and her recovery was more complicated than expected. To date, she has been doing well with the medication, and she uses Pradaxa as her blood thinner.
