My EP recently told me that my only option left, other than trying amiodarone again which I don't want to do, is to have a surgical ablation. I've had 2 ablations previously, but not the surgical one. It's similar to a MAZE procedure except they use radio frequency and don't make any surgical incisions in your heart like the MAZE does. I'm in the U.S. and if my insurance will approve it, it will be done at the University of Chicago medical center. Does anyone have any experience with this procedure? I have failed all of the other drugs except for the really nasty ones.
