Proportion of atrial flutter
(black bar) and atrial fibrillation (white bar) after ablation by presenting rhythm.
"This atrial flutter
is different than the last one I had.
An atrial flutter
with a 214 ms cycle length and 2:1 AV conduction ratio was recorded.

CTI-dependent atrial flutter
is the most commonly encountered incisional atrial tachycardia1.
Current users of NSAIDs for 15 to 30 days had an increased risk of atrial flutter
or atrial fibrillation compared with patients who did not receive any NSAIDs.
For patients on antiarrhythmic drugs, syncope occurred in 3.3%, atrial flutter
with 1:1 conduction in 1.6%, and other significant advents leading to discontinuation of drug therapy in 14.3%.
* Atrial flutter
This is closely related to Afib, and can occur alongside Afib.
Boston Scientific Corporation (NYSE: BSX), Natick, Mass., has announced Health Canada approval of the Blazer Open-Irrigated Catheter, the company's latest radiofrequency ablation (RFA) catheter designed to treat a variety of arrhythmias such as atrial fibrillation, atrial flutter
, ventricular tachycardia and other supraventricular tachycardias.
Twenty-three minutes into the exposure to CAPs (filter weight, 112[micro]g/[m.sup.3] particle number, 563,912/cc), the telemetry monitor revealed that the subject had nonsustained atrial fibrillation that quickly organized into atrial flutter
. She was immediately removed from the exposure chamber.
Similar to atrial fibrillation, Atrial Flutter
is less common.
