First Seen: March 3, 2004  2:00 PM EST (19:00 UTC)

(NEW YORK CITY, NY) - St. Luke's-Roosevelt Hospital webcasted a revolutionary non-surgical, intravenous catheter treatment for atrial fibrillation (AFib) sufferers on March 3, 2004 from 2:00pm - 3:00pm (EST). Dr. Jonathan S. Steinberg, an electrophysiologist and chief of cardiology at St. Luke's Roosevelt Hospital, performed the technique known as radiofrequency ablation therapy.

Revolutionary Non-surgical, Intravenous Catheter Treatment for Atrial Fibrillation

"Ablation therapy using radiofrequency energy successfully cures patients with atrial fibrillation and enables people who would have previously been placed on drugs for life to be completely off medical therapy after the procedure."

Catheter ablation techniques have been designed and successfully applied to a variety of patients with AFib targeting the pulmonary vein musculature, the frequent source of irregular heartbeats.
