Abstract

This case report describes a 62 years old patient who suffered from therapy resisten atrial fibrillation for 12 years. She underwent 'Cox/Maze- III-Procedure' during a mitral valve reconstruction and a stable sinus rhythm was achieved. Two years after operation she has been in a stable sinus rhythm. Transesophageal echocardiography revealed normal cardiac dimensions and function with coordinated atrioventicular contractility. Therefore the therapy with anticoagulants and antiarrhythmics could be discontinued.
