Post- TT Maze procedure (trans-thoracoscopic Maze ablation)
Hello to all. I had this procedure done two weeks ago at Brigham & Women's Hospital in Boston. I am recovering and was wondering if anyone in this forum has had this procedure and what it was like for them. I had the "less invasive" version of the Maze; instead of a median sternotomy, the surgeon accessed my heart through several "keyholes" in my chest. I resorted to this procedure after several prior ablations and medication combos, none of which worked long-term to treat my longstanding, drug-resistant A-Fib and atrial ectopics. I will not know for 1-2 months whether the treatment has eliminated the arrhythmias.
I have not been able to find anyone else out there who has been through this procedure. Thanks in advance.
