Repetitive atrial flutter as a complication of the left-sided simple maze procedure.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Of 41 patients who had undergone a left-sided simple maze procedure, 4 (9.8%) developed repetitive tachycardia due to atrial flutter, and required radiofrequency catheter ablation. Linear ablation of the right atrial isthmus was effective to treat atrial flutter. METHODS We conducted an electrophysiologic study of atrial flutter and determined… (More)
