BACKGROUND Peri-mitral atrial flutter (PMFL) is commonly encountered in patients undergoing atrial fibrillation (AF) ablation. OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to determine the electrophysiologic characteristics, procedural success, and medium-term outcomes in patients with PMFL. METHODS The study consisted of 50 consecutive patients (45 men and 5 women, age 57 +/- 12 years) with PMFL following or during AF ablation. Of the 50 PMFLs, 24 occurred during AF ablation (16 at index… CONTINUE READING
