Super Ablation – The New FIRM Afib Ablation

Afib & the PRECISE Trial — StopAfib.org interviews Dr. Sanjiv Narayan

Here is some great news for Afib sufferers especially those (like me) who had persistent or permanent Afib, the kind resistant to treatment including ablation.  This may be the answer – exciting stuff!

StopAfib.org interviews Dr. Sanjiv Narayan of the University of California, San Diego at Heart Rhythm Society 2013

In this video interview, Dr. Sanjiv Narayan talks about the PRECISE trial, the late breaking clinical trial that he presented at Heart Rhythm 2013. This multicenter trial looked at whether FIRM ablation alone would work. Total ablation time in the trial averaged about 20 minutes.

TWENTY MINUTES ! – My last ablation (my third) lasted over 6 hours… I am still Afib free but if I ever need another round – this is the one for me. Go Dr. Narayan!

While they are still early in follow up, the data he presented showed a success rate of just over 80% at about nine months. He also shared FIRM data that was presented at HRS by other investigators.
