Has ABLATION and a watchman device been considered? If not, why not?
Jump to this post
Ablation is a surgical procedure that is considered in therapy decisions of people with arrhythmic pulse and their medical team. Watchman is a medical device that also gets wide consideration at the level of physician-patient, taking into account the cost of the device and the willingness of health insurance companies to foot the bill. Journalism encounters resistance of patients and their medical teams to detailed questions that form the basis of publications; personal privacy is protected in these cases by medical professionals as well as by public laws prohibiting disclosure of personal health information.
