MAZE Procedure
Minimally Invasive Cox-Maze

The minimally invasive Cox-Maze procedure was first performed by Dr. Adam Saltman and colleagues from the Divisions of Cardiothoracic Surgery at the University of Massachusetts. A complete pulmonary vein isolation was performed entirely through a thoracoscopic approach in a patient with atrial fibrillation. A microwave ablation procedure using 3 access ports in the right pleural space and 3 access ports through the left pleural space was used to complete this operation. The Flex 10 Microwave device was used to isolate the right and left pulmonary veins, through right sided and left sided incisions respectively.
