Most patients with atrial flutter should be considered for long-term anticoagulation in a manner similar to those with atrial fibrillation (AF).

The efficacies of CTI ablation and AADs have been compared for the treatment of typical flutter in two randomised studies.

Atrial flutter

A multicentre, randomized, double-blind, placebocontrolled study. Electrical conduction in heart cells.

J Am Coll Cardiol ; Studies in man after open heart surgery using fixed atrial electrodes. Surface electrocardiographic patterns and electrophysiologic characteristics of atrial flutter following modified radiofrequency MAZE procedures.

For each cycle around the loop, an electric impulse results and propagates through the atria.

Flutter cardioversion by pacing is painless and can be done without sedation or anaesthesia. Atrial flutter AFL is a common abnormal heart rhythm that starts in the atrial chambers of the flufter.

Atrial flutter mapping and ablation. Use of procainamide with rapid atrial pacing for successful conversion of atrial flutter to sinus rhythm. In general, atrial flutter should be managed the same as atrial fibrillation. Isolated atrial flutter is an extremely rare form of supraventricular tachycardia in the neonatal period. Eur Heart J Characterization flitter reentrant circuits in left atrial macroreentrant tachycardia: LA dilatation and abnormalities in its reservoir function have been described as predictors of the incidence of atrial flutter or fibrillation.

Remember, that there’s an irritable automaticity focus that’s over-firing, so it’s going to fire, fire, fire but it won’t conduct signal through the AV node every time it fires because of the refractory period. G Ital Cardiol ; The electrical signal travels around in a circular pattern and moves around again, and again, and again, and again, and again.

New-onset atrial fibrillation predicts long-term newly developed atrial fibrillation after coronary artery bypass graft. These backup pacers only fire in the event that the signal from the SA node is not efficiently or effectively reaching the AV node and when they do fire, they fire at a rate between 60 and 80 beats per minute or BPM.

Electrophysiological effects of catheter ablation of inferior vena cava-tricuspid annulus auriculare in common atrial flutter. New England Journal of Medicine. Science Health and medicine Circulatory system diseases Cardiac dysrhythmias and tachycardias. Long-term outcome of electrical cardioversion in patients with chronic atrial flutter.


So this is sort of like a backup mechanism to prevent the AV node from over-firing which will then prevent the ventricles from contracting too quickly. Heart failure and sudden death in patients with tachycardia-induced cardiomyopathy and recurrent tachycardia.

Mapping and ablation of left atrial flutters. Heart rate is a measure of the ventricular rather than atrial activity. It’s one of the supraventricular auruculaire.

Acute and long-term efficacy and safety of catheter cryoablation of the cavotricuspid isthmus for treatment of type 1 atrial flutter.

Relation of characteristics of the surface electrocardiogram and conduction properties of the reentrant pathway.

Even if the ventricles are able to sustain a cardiac output at such a high rates, 1: Multifocal atrial tachycardia MAT. Proarrhythmic aspects of atrial fibrillation surgery: Characterization of reentrant circuit in macroreentrant right atrial tachycardia after surgical repair o congenital heart disease: Recurrent spontaneous clinical perimitral atrial tachycardia in the context of atrial fibrillation ablation.
