January 14, 2011

UCSF cardiologist Gregory Marcus, MD, discusses, the causes, prevention, and management of atrial fibrillation.

Cardiologist and electrophysiologist Gregory Marcus, MD, assistant professor of medicine at UCSF School of Medicine, “is a specialist in the treatment of arrhythmias, including mapping and catheter ablation for atrial fibrillation, supraventricular tachycardias and ventricular arrhythmias. He is also an expert in pacemaker, biventricular device and defibrillator implantation. Marcus also researches atrial arrhythmias, specifically serologic markers and genetic factors important to the disease.”

In “Atrial Fibrillation: Unlocking the Mystery of the Most Common Heart Arrhythmia,” a video from UCSD TV, Marcus provides a comprehensive review of the “complex, but now preventable and treatable” causes of atrial fibrillation and other diseases of the heart and blood vessels.
