Atrial fibrillation increases stroke risk 5 times
Do you often feel your heart racing or flip-flopping in your chest? That
abnormal heartbeat could be the wake-up call for a serious heart rhythm
problem called atrial fibrillation (AFib). If your heart isn’t beating
properly, blood clots can form, travel to the brain and cause a stroke.
Dr. Srinivas Iyengar, a board-certified cardiologist who is fellowship trained in cardiovascular
medicine and interventional cardiology, describe the causes, types and
diagnosis of AFib. Then learn about the latest advances in treating AFib,
including WATCHMAN — a new minimally invasive procedure for people
with non-valvular AFib.
When: Thursday, May 24, from 7 to 8 p.m.
