News & Events

  • Study combines two minimally invasive procedures to treat atrial fibrillation

    A new clinical trial is now underway at the MGH to investigate whether combining two catheter-based procedures will improve the long-term outcome in the treatment of atrial fibrillation, the most common heart rhythm disorder. The MGH is the first hospital in New England – and only the second in the nation – to pair renal artery sympathetic denervation with pulmonary vein isolation (PVI) for patients with atrial fibrillation and hypertension.
