  • Atrial flutter

     Atrial flutter (AFL) is a type of abnormal heart rate, or arrhythmia. It occurs when the upper chambers of your heart (the atria) beat too fast. When the top of your heart (atria) beats faster than the bottom (ventricles), it complicates your heart rhythm.

  • Atrial flutter

    Atrial flutter occurs in many of the same situations as atrial fibrillation, which is much more common. Atrial flutter may be a stable rhythm or a bridge arrhythmia between sinus rhythm and atrial fibrillation. It may also be associated with a variety of other supraventricular arrhythmias.Those signals tell the top of the heart (atria) how and when to contract. When you have AFL, the atria send signals that overwhelm the sinus node. This makes them contract rapidly. The lower chambers respond by also beating very rapidly.

  • Atrial flutter

    Out of 137 patients with atrial fibrillation, 76 were female (55.47%) and 61 were male (44.43%). Mean age was 51.24 ± 15.36 years. Commonest cause of AF was rheumatic heart disease found in 84 (61.31%) patients. Next common causes were hypertensive heart disease in 14 (10.2%) patients and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) in 14 (10.2%) patients. Mean left atrial size was 47.8 ± 12.25 mm.
