Moussa Mansour, MD, is the Director of the Cardiac Electrophysiology Laboratory and Director of the Atrial Fibrillation Program at Massachusetts General Hospital.
Dr. Mansour is an active clinical consultant in all aspects of heart rhythm disorders, including atrial fibrillation, ventricular tachycardia, supraventricular tachycardia, bradycardia and other abnormal rhythms. Dr. Mansour performs a large number of catheter ablation procedures and implants pacemakers and defibrillators to treat different arrhythmias.
Dr. Mansour has published extensively in the field of cardiac arrhythmia, specifically the area of Atrial Fibrillation. He is involved in cutting edge research and currently participating in the development of new catheters for the treatment of atrial fibrillation.

Three MGHers were honored Feb. 24 with this year's Bowditch Prize, named for the self-taught 19th century celestial navigator Nathaniel Bowditch, who helped raise funds for the construction of the MGH in the early 1800s.
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.
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 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.
Ed Cleary came to Massachusetts General Hospital in June 2012 to get his AFib treated. He had tried taking a blood thinner to help manage his AFib, but bled too much. Fortunately, he qualified for a new procedure now being used for the first time in New England by Mass General Hospital.
The Mass General Institute for Heart, Vascular, and Stroke Care integrates services to accelerate advances in stroke-related atrial fibrillation research and patient care.
Cryoballoon ablation is a new procedure available at the Massachusetts General Hospital Heart Center that is showing promise as an alternative therapy to treat atrial fibrillation, a type of heart rhythm disorder.
Mass General Heart Center physicians are evaluating a new medical device that shows promise in preventing strokes among patients with atrial fibrillation.
