    Well, I had an ablation procedure performed to correct an electrical issue in my heart over ten years ago. Since, I have been able to run a marathon, climb mountains, bear children :). It worked for me and my heart issue: no more panic attacks, dizziness and inability to finish a simple workout. Thanks for the article and story!

    Catheter ablation for afib is corporate-driven procedure that is more risky and much less effective than advertised. Google "Collateral Damage by Dan Walter"

    The most recent study shows an optimistic success rate of 29% -- and the casualties keep mounting.
