    [Modified Maze Procedure]

    My personal experience with this was quite different from what I feel I have learned from others. I have only ever had one short episode of A fib back in July. It lasted 19 hours and I converted after being on oral meds. This along with my 10 year history of HOCM led to my being referred to the CCF for myectomy.

    Once seen by the Dr.'s in Cleveland and evaluated it was decided to also do this very modified Maze procedure on me. As I understand it this invloved just a quick clamping of one area and cauterization to prevent any impulses from going through and perhaps causing a fib.

    As Lisa always stresses we are all very different. Let your Dr.'s be your guide through all this as it pertains to your particular situation. Ask questions and be as informed as possible.

    Thanks to all for your support.------------- Sue
