Judith’s cardiac treatment

Judith patient story

For years, Judith knew there was something wrong with her heart. At London Bridge Hospital, she finally had the life-changing treatment she needed.

Judith patient story

Judiths cardiac treatment

I’m full of energy, doing the garden again and have my confidence back.
Judith

Patient

Sometimes Judith would feel her heart race for hours at a time. Or she would notice it stop beating for a few seconds. Tests always came back normal, but that didn’t stop her worrying. She even gave up driving, in case her blood pressure dropped and she passed out. At the age of 72, she was finally diagnosed with atrial fibrillation (AF). AF is a common heart rhythm disorder, which is caused by abnormal electrical signals from the pulmonary veins. Judith was put on heart medication, but it lowered her blood pressure so much that she felt faint. After she collapsed one day while out shopping, Judith began researching other treatment options. Her search led her to the Atrial Fibrillation Centre at London Bridge Hospital. After a consultation, she decided to have cryoablation, one of the most cutting-edge procedures used to treat her condition. This technique involves inflating a balloon containing super-cooled gas inside the pulmonary vein to destroy the cells that are causing the abnormal heartbeat. The one-hour procedure was a success. Now Judith can get on with enjoying her retirement.
