Atrial flutter ablation Learn how heart specialists use cardiac ablation to treat atrial flutter..The procedure is used most often to treat a condition called supraventricular tachycardia, or SVT, which occurs because of abnormal conduction fibers in the heart. Catheter ablation is also used to help control other heart rhythm problems such as atrial flutter and atrial fibrillation. Catheter ablation destroys .BackgroundCreation of a complete bidirectional inferior vena cava-tricuspid annulus isthmus block CBIB by radiofrequency catheter ablation is now a well-accepted criterion for prevention of common atrial flutter AFl recurrences. However, some patients still complain of palpitations after ablation, and it is not known .What 's more, this conceptthat slowing conduction favors flutter circuitsis why atrial flutter can complicate AF ablation. Here, the incomplete creation of ablation lines injurebut not deadenheart cells. An injured group of cells conduct poorly and these areas of slow conduction create anchoring points .
