Heart Rhythm ; 6: Personal information regarding our website’s visitors, auriculaier their identity, is confidential. This 3-dimensional electroanatomic map of a tricuspid valve and right atrium shows the activation pattern displayed in color format.

These procedures may be complicated by the induction of multiple MRT circuits that are not clinically documented. Activation travels in counterclockwise direction. Heart failure and sudden death in aurculaire with tachycardia-induced cardiomyopathy and recurrent tachycardia.

Atrial Flutter

Characteristics of cavotricuspid isthmus ablation for atrial flutter guided by novel parameters using a contact force catheter. Left Atrial Macro-re-entrant Tachycardias Surgical atriotomy scars are a well-known cause of MRT of the LA — often combined with re-entry around low-voltage, inexcitable uariculaire not related to atriotomy.

Modern electrophysiology EP has confirmed the re-entrant mechanism of typical flutter, and has opened wide the spectrum of mechanisms of macro-re-entrant tachycardias MRTsprompting a new, more open view of clinical ECG-based classification see Figure 1A and 1B.

Thrombus material can, of course, embolize to any other portion of the body, though usually with a less severe outcome. His development and clinical examination were normal two months later.

Eur Heart J A new animal model of atrial flutter. EP studies have shown areas of low-voltage electrograms 45 and slow conduction in auficulaire RA — particularly at the CTI 46—48 — to be a sign of arrhythmogenic myocardial remodelling.

MRT involving the interatrial septum is particularly difficult to treat and success rates are lower than auriculzire MRT based on the free atrial walls. Prospective randomized comparison of irrigated-tip versus conventionaltip catheters for ablation of common flutter.

Archived from the original on 26 February A demonstration of airiculaire movement in clinical flutter of the auricles. Radiofrequency catheter ablation of common atrial flutter: Early studies suggested that flutter had a re-entrant mechanism 3—5 but others attributed flutter to focal discharge.

In patients subjected to cardiac surgery or catheter ablation for the treatment of atrial fibrillation or showing atypical ECG patterns, macro-re-entrant and focal tachycardia mechanisms can be very complex and electrophysiological studies are necessary to guide ablation treatment in poorly tolerated cases.

Long-term use of blood thinners e. Acute and long-term results of radiofrequency ablation of common atrial flutter and the influence of the right atrial isthmus ablation on the occurrence of atrial fibrillation. This is often a difficult goal in flutter, and even associations of the AV node blocking drugs digoxin, beta-blockers and calcium antagonists may fail, making cardioversion to sinus rhythm necessary.

Atrial flutter is associated with a variety of cardiac disorders. Myocardial injury during radiofrequency and cryoablation of typical atrial flutter.

Surface electrocardiographic characteristics of right and left atrial flutter. Some reports have documented airiculaire episodes of atrial fibrillation after successful flutter ablation; others have not.

In general, atrial flutter should be managed the same as atrial fibrillation. Transoesophageal atrial pacing is safe and effective for conversion. In one study, the average age was 64 years. Views Read Edit View history. The superior transseptal surgical approach to mitral valve creates slow conduction. Atrial flutter is considerably more sensitive to electrical direct current cardioversion than atrial fibrillation, with a shock of only 20 to 50 Joules commonly being enough to cause a return to a normal heart rhythm sinus rhythm.


Typically initiated by a premature electrical impulse arising in the atriaatrial flutter is propagated due to differences in refractory periods of atrial tissue. Prognosis in these complex cases is difficult to predict 24,— but long remissions of tachycardias can be attained in many cases of free wall RA and LA scar.

Atrial fibrillation after radiofrequency ablation of type I atrial flutter: As in AF, loss of effective atrial contraction synchronised to ventricular contraction and rapid ventricular rates may result in hypotension, angina, heart failure, syncope or a feeling of palpitation making the patient auroculaire medical attention.

A Lead electrocardiogram of typical atrial flutter.

Ablation of atypical atrial flutters using ultra high density-activation sequence mapping. Indications for ablation should be established, taking into account the underlying pathology, quality of life and limitations in functional capacity. Top of the page – Article Outline. Direct AF ablation has been proposed by some groups as a complement to CTI ablation in patients with both arrhythmias, and even in those with only flutter, to reduce the later incidence of AF. Histopathological findings following the use of a long 8 mm tip electrode.
