Kay's atrial fibrillation, or afib, wasn't responding to medication therapy. The irregular heart rhythms caused by afib were affecting her ability to live an active life. Mitchell Faddis, MD, PhD, a Washington University cardiologist at Barnes-Jewish Hospital, performed a procedure called catheter ablation to target her heart's problem areas. Now Kay's afib is gone, and she says the difference is like night and day.
