Atrial fibrillation (or "AF") is the most common form of irregular heart rhythm, affecting more than three million people nationally.

The Maze surgical procedure, as practiced by the Phoebe Heart and Vascular Center surgeons, provides a very effective way to restore normal heart rhythm.

Abnormal heart rhythm -- or "arrhythmia" -- once thought to be harmless, is in fact a serious condition that greatly increases the risk of stroke. The most common form of arrhythmia, originating in the top of the heart, is called atrial fibrillation and causes a rapid and disorganized heartbeat.
