Atrial Fibrillation is a common heart condition that causes your heart to beat irregularly; electricity in the upper part of your heart does not flow correctly and your heart beats out of rhythm. Many patients feel no symptoms and are unaware of this heart condition until it is discovered during an electrocardiogram or physical examination by a health care provider. Identifying atrial fibrillation is so important, because patients with this irregular heart rhythm are more than five times more likely to have a stroke because blood clots form easily when the heart isn’t in sync. The blood clot then travels to the brain, where it can affect the brain getting blood flow ultimately causing a stroke. We offer multiple advanced treatment options for atrial fibrillation at Cardiovascular Institute of San Diego including customized medical therapy to prevent stroke, catheter ablation to restore a regular heart rhythm, and Watchman device implantation to close off the part of the heart where harmful blood clots form in patients with Atrial Fibrillation. Let us evaluate your heart rhythm and make personalized recommendations tailored to your lifestyle!
