Abstract

Whether the conduction disturbances of the interatrial connections play a role in the genesis of ECG variants of atrial flutter is almost completely unknown. We present a patient with typical counterclockwise atrial flutter in whom the ablation of the coronary sinus (CS) area during ongoing atrial flutter produced significant ECG changes without alterations in the activation sequence within the right atrium (RA). This case highlights the possible role of alterations of the interatrial connections in the genesis of atypical ECG manifestations of common type atrial flutter.
