If your atrial fibrillation has lasted for more than a year, there's new hope for effective treatment. Hybrid AF™ Therapy with the EPi-Sense device is the first and only FDA PMA approved minimally invasive ablation therapy for long-standing persistent atrial fibrillation patients.
Hybrid AF Therapy combines two types of ablation therapy to treat two key trigger areas for AF:
Epicardial ablation treats the outside of the heart, on the back (posterior) of the atrium, another known trigger area for AF.
Endocardial radiofrequency (RF) ablation treats the inside of the heart at the pulmonary veins. This is a key trigger area for atrial fibrillation.
