Thank you for your concern. I’m not a candidate for a heart transplant. I’m an “interesting and puzzling” case. Several cardiologists over the the last 12 years have thoroughly studied my heart and have found nothing physically wrong with it. All valves work good. All blood vessels are wide open. All the musculature is strong. Pace makers are good (AV and SA nodes). I’ve been told by cardiologists that I have no disease associated with my heart. One cardiologist told me that I have a heart that is similar to that of an Olympic cyclist. My heart’s problem is electrical and the last catheter ablation helped to correct that for 2½ years. I’ve been offered a second catheter ablation (using freezing instead of heating) but after much thought I turned it down. I decided to go with the Wolf Minimaze because of many reasons. If the results of the minimaze are disappointing (the cardiologist said that there is a 70% chance of success but I don’t feel lucky) then I will live with a-fib, not fight it any longer. I’ll learn to accept it and move on.
