EP in Practice – Program 3

Typical & Atypical Flutter


Your guide to Typical Flutters, Atypical Flutters, Epicardial Structures & making sense of 3D re-entry activation maps. This Program equips you with the knowledge needed to support Flutter ablations and has exams that will challenge your understanding of typical and atypical flutters, respectively.


EP in Practice – Program 3: Atrial Flutter

This program is a structured guide to supporting Atrial Flutter ablations in the EP lab. We will guide you through both typical & atypical flutter ablations.

What it includes?

Structured lectures on Typical Flutter

  • Risk factors, presentation & management considerations for atrial flutter
  • Relevant anatomy & physiology essential to understanding macro-reentry in the atria & understanding why the ECG looks the way it does in atrial flutter.
  • Understand how the direction of atrial depolarisation influences the EGM’s, how to measure trans-isthmus times and perform & interpret atrial entrainment during atrial flutter.
  • What to look out for and what to measure during atrial flutter ablation
  • The pros & cons of 3D mapping and how to interpret their 3D activation maps.
  • Typical Flutter Quiz.

Structured lectures on Atypical Flutter

  • The Common types of RA & LA atypical flutters encountered in the EP lab
  • The different anatomical structures relevant to choosing an ablation strategy for atypical flutter, maximising efficacy & minimising risk.
  • The epicardial structures relevant in mapping & ablating atypical flutter
  • Common entrainment sites & ablation strategies employed in atypical flutter ablations
  • Atypical Flutter Quiz
