Chat Participants:

He is the Director of the Outpatient Electrophysiology Department and Co-Director of the Ventricular Arrhythmia Center.

Dr. Wazni is principal investigator in several ongoing research studies related to atrial fibrillation and ventricular tachycardia ablation, anticoagulation management in patients undergoing ablation for chronic atrial fibrillation, and use of low molecular heparin for bridging in patients undergoing implantation of mechanical valves.
  • Mandeep Bhargava, MD, is a cardiologist in the Section of Cardiac Electrophysiology and Pacing, Robert and Suzanne Tomsich Department of Cardiovascular Medicine at Cleveland Clinic.

  • 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.
