Wolf Mini Maze
The Wolf Mini Maze procedure, named after Dr. Randall K. Wolf, requires one 5cm and two 1cm incisions on each side of the chest. These incisions allow the surgeon to maneuver the tools, view areas through a thoracoscope, and to see the heart directly. A special tool, the Atricure Hand Piece, performs the ablation on one side of the heart.
