Ascending aortic aneurysm repair and surgical ablation for atrial fibrillation
Aortic Aneurysm, Thoracic
Vascular Surgical Procedures
Aortic aneurysm repair with concomitant atrial fibrillation ablation is safe and efficacious despite the requirement for an already extensive procedure with rhythm success rates similar to those quoted in the setting of other procedures. Successful restoration of sinus rhythm improves long term survival and should be considered in patients presenting with aortic aneurysm and atrial fibrillation.
