Procedures performed at the Oregon Heart and Vascular Institute (OHVI) at Sacred Heart Medical Center at RiverBend


  • Radiofrequency Catheter Ablation
  • Catheter Ablation using the Cryoballoon (2012)
  • Minimally invasive surgery (“Wolf MiniMaze”)

If you have your procedure at OHVI:


  • Note that all patients are required to undergo extensive testing prior to the procedure, primarily to ensure that you do not have other heart disease, such as a leaky valve or coronary artery disease, that may require a different surgical procedure
  • Note that nearly all patients enter a research protocol that may require additional testing (but no additional expense to you)
  • Note that all patients are required to undergo extensive monitoring (two weeks continuously every six months) indefinitely after the procedure
