To be honest I am not at all a fan of the mini-maze procedure. The slightest mistake or miscalculation can make things so much worse than they are. I would suggest that instead she as about focal ablation. It is lot easier and recovery is faster. Some places here in oklahoma actually do it as an outpatient procedure.

Focal ablation is where they go in and only zap the parts that are causing the A Fib.
Are two places you can read about it at. It is often done relatively quickly and easily and I have been quite impressed with the results in several patients.
