Gov. Bentley in recovery from heart procedure

The Governor’s Communications Director on Wednesday released the following statement.

This morning, Governor Bentley briefly underwent a common, routine procedure for atrial fibrillation. Governor Bentley is feeling well and there are no serious medical concerns. The Governor is expected to return to work right away and he is continuing to work on key legislation such as the Alabama Prison Transformation Initiative. He looks forward to continuing his work with other governors on the Repeal and Replacement of the Affordable Care Act, and working hard for the people of our state.

Atrial fibrillation (AF or A-fib) is an abnormal heart rhythm characterized by rapid and irregular beating.

AF is often treated with medications to slow the heart rate to a near normal range (known as rate control) or to convert the rhythm to normal sinus rhythm (known as rhythm control).
