    How Can I Be Evaluated
    for Pulmonary Vein Isolation?

    To determine if PVAI is an appropriate treatment for you, a thorough evaluation will be performed. This may include:

    • A review of your medical history

    • Complete physical examination

    • Electrocardiogram (ECG)

    • Echocardiogram (Echo)

    • Holter monitor or event recorder test

    • Tests to exclude other heart problems such as coronary artery disease
    • Tests to determine the severity of any sleep apnea problem you may have. You could be advised to seek treatment of this condition first.
    Thereafter, you will work with our specialized atrial fibrillation team to choose the most suitable time to schedule the procedure and the other tests which may be needed.
