Abstract

The Maze procedure for chronic and paroxysmal atrial fibrillation has been curative in all patients, resulting in restoration of atrioventricular synchrony and atrial transport function. There has been no operative mortality, and the incidence of postoperative complications is similar to that of other types of open heart surgery.
