This chat is a great time to learn more about atrial fibrillation, including diagnosis and treatments.

Chat Participants:

  • Walid Saliba, MD, is the Director of the Electrophysiology Lab, Medical Director of the Center for Atrial Fibrillation, and a Staff Cardiologist in the Section of Cardiac Electrophysiology and Pacing in the Robert and Suzanne Tomsich Department of Cardiovascular Medicine at Cleveland Clinic. He is board-certified in cardiac electrophysiology, cardiovascular disease and internal medicine. Dr. Saliba is trained in all aspects of clinical cardiac electrophysiology and pacing, including catheter ablation of complex  arrhythmias.
  • Oussama Wazni, MD, is a Staff Physician in the Cleveland Clinic Section of Cardiac Electrophysiology and Pacing. He is the Director of the Outpatient Electrophysiology Department and Co-Director of the Ventricular Arrhythmia Center. He is board-certified in internal medicine, cardiology and cardiac electrophysiology. He specializes in electrophysiology with special interest in atrial fibrillation and ventricular tachycardia ablation.
  • David Van Wagoner, PhD, is a Translational Scientist who works with physicians in the Sydell and Arnold Miller Family Heart & Vascular Institute at Cleveland Clinic. As a scientist, Dr. Van Wagoner does not treat patients, but works closely with Heart Center physicians to research the mechanisms underlying atrial fibrillation, and to develop and assess new techniques for treating atrial fibrillation and other aging-related cardiovascular conditions.
  • The Cleveland Clinic doctors will be joined by Mellanie True Hills, Founder and CEO of StopAfib.org, who left her corporate executive life behind to spread the word about women and heart disease after almost dying in emergency heart surgery. On September 13, 2005, Mellanie had Mini-Maze surgery and says, "Though it was surgery, with risks and anesthesia, and was in an area that is very delicate for women, I have no regrets." She had been grounded from flying for two years, and was now able to fly again and travel by herself. She says, "You can't put a price on getting your freedom back." Mellanie praises all those who made this surgery possible because they restored her life and freedom. Would she do it again? In a heartbeat. That's why she adopted this tagline for StopAfib.org.
