A patient is described with drug-resistant recurrent paroxysmal atrial flutter. Electrophysiologic studies demonstrated that flutter was inducible with rapid atrial stimulation (stimulation rates of 375 to 400/min) and convertible with rapid atrial stimulation (rates of 400 to 460/min). Because of the latter response, a radio-frequency atrial pacemaker was… (More)
