Further testing, I ended up having atrial flutter
, and what they did for that was a cardioversion.
A-16-year old boy with a history of surgical palliation of d-transposition of the great arteries, a normal systolic ejection fraction, and symptomatic drug refractory atrial flutter
was referred for an electrophysiological study and ablation procedure.
Results of success frequency for different types of arrhythmia in their study were as: AVNRT 98% (130/132), AVRT 91% (97/106), typical atrial flutter
99% (129/130) and for atrial tachycardia 86% (18/21).15 Results of success frequency for different types of arrhythmia in our study included AVNRT 100% (28/28), AVRT 100% (17/17), and for atrial tachycardia 75% (3/4).
Lumax DX can discriminate between supraventricular tachycardias (SVTs), atrial fibrillation and atrial flutter
with its SMART Detection(R) algorithm, helping to safely reduce this risk.
Atrial arrhythmias included atrial flutter
, atrial fibrillation, atrial tachycardia, atrial premature complex and AV junctional disturbances.
The activation map revealeded two circuits: one was a CTI-dependent counter-clockwise atrial flutter
, and the second was a posterior wall circuit which was driven by the first.
Esmolol hydrochloride in sodium chloride injection is indicated for the short-term control of ventricular rate in supraventricular tachycardia including atrial fibrillation and atrial flutter
and control of heart rate in noncompensatory sinus tachycardia and control of perioperative tachycardia and hypertension.
The diagnosis of atrial flutter
was confirmed by the treating general practitioner or by research physicians and a cardiologist.
In the study, radiofrequency catheter-based pulmonary vein isolation was associated with a 44% relative risk reduction, compared with antiarrhythmics drugs, in the primary end point of time to first recurrence of symptomatic or asymptomatic atrial fibrillation (AF), atrial tachyarrhythmia (AT), or atrial flutter
(AFL), reported Dr.
