Atrial flutter is a tachyarrthymia which is characterised by an organised re-entry circuit in the atrial, commonly the right atrium. This usually causes a fast heart rate. If atrial flutter persists, it may degenerate into atrial fibrillation.
While atrial flutter commonly occurs in patient with cardiovascular disease, it can also occur in patients without heart conditions.
