A new electrocardiographic algorithm to differentiate upper loop re-entry from reverse typical atrial flutter.

OBJECTIVES This study was performed to differentiate upper loop re-entry (ULR) from reverse typical atrial flutter (AFL). BACKGROUND Right atrial ULR and reverse typical AFL have different mechanisms and ablation strategies, but similar electrocardiographic characteristics. METHODS This study included 26 patients with reverse typical AFL and 20 patients… CONTINUE READING
