Heart rhythm disorders (arrhythmias) are very common and impact the electrical system, or “wiring,” of the heart muscle. Millions of people will experience an abnormal heart rhythm during their lives.
A Fib is a type of irregular heartbeat affecting about 2.2 million people in the United States. Symptoms of A Fib include shortness of breath and lightheadedness. If left untreated, A Fib can lead to congestive heart failure or stroke.
Centennial Heart Center, located at 2300 Patterson St. in Nashville, features the latest treatment advances for correcting A Fib and is at the forefront of the advancement of treatment for other heart rhythm disorders. Centennial Heart Center offers full-service cardiovascular care—from invasive procedures such as coronary artery stenting, peripheral vascular intervention, pacemaker placement and ablation of arrhythmias—to the latest in non-invasive cardiology, such as echocardiograms, stress tests, CT angiography, and ambulatory heart rhythm monitoring.
