On Wednesday, April 9, 2008, you can see a live panel discussion regarding the Hybrid Maze procedure performed at Northwestern Memorial Hospital.

Dr. Lee and Patrick McCarthy, MD, co-director of the Bluhm Cardiovascular Institute and the chief of the division of cardiothoracic surgery at Northwestern Memorial Hospital will host this interactive discussion and describe the surgery with taped footage of a Hybrid Maze procedure. The doctors will answer live email questions from the Internet during the live webcast.

The Hybrid Maze procedure is performed in two stages. Stage I, minimally invasive surgery and Stage II, minimally invasive catheter ablation. Each procedure is responsible for placing scar lines in very specific places in and around the heart to isolate abnormal electrical signals that cause atrial fibrillation.
