Two minimally invasive procedures to treat atrial fibrillation

A new clinical trial is now underway at the Massachusetts General Hospital to investigate whether combining two endovascular catheter-based procedures will improve the long-term outcome in the treatment of atrial fibrillation, the most common heart rhythm disorder. Mass General is one of the first hospitals to pair renal artery sympathetic denervation with pulmonary vein isolation (PVI) for patients with atrial fibrillation and hypertension.
