Surgical Innovations: Atrial Fibrillation & Heart Valve Disease

What are the latest surgical innovations for patients with atrial fibrillation (AFib) and heart valve disease? Learn about the newest surgical techniques for atrial fibrillation and heart valve disease from Dr. Ali Khoynezhad, leading heart surgeon at MemorialCare in Long Beach, California. Atrial Fibrillation is an abnormal heart rhythm that can cause heart palpitations, shortness of breath, fatigue and chest pain. Patients with AFib are 5 times more likely to have a stroke. That said, it is very important for patients to learn about AFib and heart valve disorders as both forms of heart disease are under-diagnosed and under-treated. (Video posted on March 1, 2019)
