Atrial fibrillation is a chronic disease which can be cured with patience if found out on an early stage. For some patients, it may be easily managed with medications. After some time of taking medicines which help to slow and regulate your heartbeat, your heart may return to a healthy state gradually. For others, they can try electric cardioversion. Several electric shocks might get their heart rate and rhythm back into control. Well for still others, catheter ablation and surgical ablation are their choices. In a catheter ablation, the surgeon puts a catheter in your leg or up to your heart. While in the latter, the patient takes more risks, for it’s a heart-opened surgery. If you want to find the best treatment for your condition, you should ask a doctor for advice.   Related FAQs: http://healthtopquestions.com/?p=1260 http://healthtopquestions.com/?p=1264 http://healthtopquestions.com/?p=1646
