I cannot say I have the same problem but this iste exists for a reason- one of them is to remind patients that sometimes it is in your right and necessary for you to go direct to the medical technology companies to helpr esolve your problem. Thats why there's a medtech1 and thats why this place is sponsored by Guidant. Perhaps your doctor does not know of any new technologie sthat can help you- or perhaps the technology companies need to know that there is market (specifically those like you with a certain problem) need that they should do research and developmemt to fulfill. In either case there is no harm in contacting the medical technology companies directly to see what solutions have been considered. I really hope your problem can be resolved, although unfortunately this is about the full capacity of my capabilities in helping you.

I am almost 62 years of age I have 1 stint in my heart and I have had 6 by passes I have problems with very high heart rate and am told this is wearing out my heart. I was suppost to have valve replacement but after going to the hopital for surgery they said I was is no condition for the surgery as my heart is inlarged and I would not get out of the hospital. I have the Doctors report and am more than willing to email it to anyone who knows of anyone that has the same problems I am not able to do much of anything as my heart beats so fast. please if there is someone out there who knows a Doctor whom I could contact let me know
