Dr. Peter Ott, associate professor of clinical medicine, will offer a community lecture in Green Valley: New Ways to Diagnose and Treat Atrial Fibrillation and Other Arrhythmias

Atrial fibrillation is a common heart rhythm problem, particularly in people over age 60. In many cases, medications may be sufficient to control symptoms. If medications are insufficient, an ablation procedure may be considered. Several recent advances in technology have made this approach more promising. Dr. Ott will discuss these new treatment options as well strategies for stroke prevention in atrial fibrillation, including anti-coagulation medicine, aspirin and new options for patients who cannot tolerate anti-coagulants.
