Minimaze.org is devoted to the potentially curative procedures for Atrial Fibrillation (AF).
It is a resource for patients and physicians who have an interest in learning about advanced therapy for AF, especially the minimally invasive surgical procedures. These are often referred to as "minimaze" procedures. Briefly, these are adaptations of the original Maze procedure, a surgical procedure intended to cure atrial fibrillation, originally developed by James Cox, MD, during the 1980s and 1990s.
