Mayo Clinic presents Dr. Munger's Avoiding Complications During Atrial Fibrillation Ablation presentation at the 2012 Electrophysiology Review for Boards and Recertification course. We invite you to experience more great presentations at the 2013 Mayo Clinic Electrophysiology Review for Boards and Recertification held August 23-26, in Rochester, Minn. This course will provide the cardiologist or practicing electrophysiologist with an update on the latest knowledge and advances in electrophysiology. The full spectrum of electrophysiology practice will be reviewed, ranging from basic arrhythmia mechanisms and pharmacology, to catheter diagnosis and therapy, and device-based treatments. Although this course is designed specifically to prepare those taking the Cardiovascular Electrophysiology Certification Boards and Recertification Boards, it will also provide the internist or practicing cardiologist with an update on the latest knowledge and advances in electrophysiology.

Dr. Darryl Wells of the Swedish Heart and Vascular Institute talks about why it's difficult to predict which patients will be completely cured after one ablation procedure and why some require two procedures. Dr. Wells also talks about the appropriate age range for patients who receive the ablation procedure.

The NovaSure® procedure is a quick, safe, simple, one-time endometrial ablation treatment that can be performed in the offices at Personalized Women’s Healthcare. This minimally invasive procedure controls heavy bleeding (menorrhagia) and only needs to be performed once to lighten or stop your periods. NovaSure is proven safe and successful without the side effects of hormones or the risks of hysterectomy. No pre-treatment drugs are required.
a very little known disorder called POST ABLATION SYNDROME in which blood no longer escapes the uterus becuz of scars or a stenosed cervix. Having your tubes tied makes this syndrome even more likely. PLZ DISCUSS THIS WITH YOUR GYNE BEFORE HAVING THIS PROCEDURE!!!!! Or if you have severe pain after the ablation right around your period time. You MAY need a hysterectomy!!
