The underlying cause, impact and health implications of a diagnosis of AF may vary from person to person. Clinical consultation offers an individual treatment plan for AF.
RHYTHM CONTROL TREATMENTS
In many instances when AF causes significant symptoms or is negatively impacting health the major goal of treatment is to restore normal rhythm and prevent recurrence of episodes of AF. Treatment options to restore normal rhythm need to be individualised and may be adjusted over time.
CATHETER ABLATION FOR AF
Catheter ablation for AF is a keyhole procedure to direct energy treatment inside the heart to the source of the abnormal electrical impulses and circuits that cause AF episodes.
STROKE PREVENTION TREATMENTS
AF leads to an increased risk of a blood clot forming in the top chambers of the heart which, if it dislodges may travel to the brain and result in a stroke. Stroke prevention treatments in AF need to be tailored to the individual risk of stroke and bleeding risk.
