: Atypical atrial flutters are complex supraventricular arrhythmias that share different pathophysiological aspects in common. In most cases, the arrhythmogenic substrate is essentially embodied by slow-conducting areas eliciting re-entrant circuits. Although atrial scarring seems to promote slow conduction, these arrhythmias may occur even in the absence of structural heart disease. To set out the ablation strategy in this setting, three-dimensional mapping systems have proved invaluable over the last decades, helping the cardiac electrophysiologist understand the electrophysiological complexity of these circuits and easily identify critical areas amenable to effective catheter ablation.

Abstract

: Atypical atrial flutters are complex supraventricular arrhythmias that share different pathophysiological aspects in common. In most cases, the arrhythmogenic substrate is essentially embodied by slow-conducting areas eliciting re-entrant circuits. Although atrial scarring seems to promote slow conduction, these arrhythmias may occur even in the absence of structural heart disease. To set out the ablation strategy in this setting, three-dimensional mapping systems have proved invaluable over the last decades, helping the cardiac electrophysiologist understand the electrophysiological complexity of these circuits and easily identify critical areas amenable to effective catheter ablation.
