Typical flutter ablation as an adjunct to catheter ablation of atrial fibrillation


Typical atrial flutter and atrial fibrillation are frequently observed to coexist(1) .  In the current context of interventional electrophysiology, curative or at least definitive ablation is available for both arrhythmias. Despite their coexistence, it is not clear whether typical flutter ablation is necessary in all patients undergoing catheter ablation of atrial fibrillation. The following review explores the pathophysiology of both arrhythmias, their interrelationships and the available data pertaining to this theme.
