Atypical atrial flutter
Simple question.  I was recently diagnosed with "atypical" atrial flutter.  Looking at options.  Have been advised that "atypical" atrial flutter ablations are more difficult to perform and have a lower success rate than typical atrial flutter.  Does Cleveland Clinic perform ablations for "atypical" atrial flutter?  If so, about what is the success rate?  

Thank you.

Richard

In the majority of cases "typical" atrial flutter is a technically easier to treat. That being said, "atypical" atrial flutter is both common and has similar ablation success rates. I can't quote you the exact numbers, but experienced electrophysiologists are well equipped to treat this condition.
