Interdisciplinary Convergent Approach May Represent Future for Treatment of Atrial Fibrillation
Date:9/21/2010

ak. "This subthoracic total endoscopic 'subtle' approach to surgery is the key to adoption of the Convergent Procedure, which provides a complete interdisciplinary approach to address the tougher atrial fibrillation patient populations with improved procedure times, less patient discomfort, and quicker recovery."

At the Techno College Session, cardiac surgical leaders echoed the call for improved technologies that enable less invasive surgical approaches and precise diagnostic endpoints to predict results for atrial fibrillation procedures.  

Professor Gerhard Wimmer Greinecker, Chief of Cardiac Surgery at the Heart and Vascular Center in Bad Bevensen, Germany, who chaired the atrial fibrillation session, joined Professor Gersak in support of "subtle surgery" for treating atrial fibrillation.  "Techniques such as the Convergent Procedure are the future of atrial fibrillation treatment as it leaves the thoracic cavity and lungs undisturbed, while enabling the cardiac surgeon to have visibility and access to the heart. This will be an important advantage in the minds of cardiologists and patients, as the approach is thought of simply as a 'procedure' rather than surgery. Demand for 'subtle surgical approaches' will continue to drive future innovation and adoption within the atrial fibrillation market."
