Table 4. Specific symptom scale (SSS) score. 001 Conclusions and Practical Considerations Atrial flutter and AF have different electrophysiological mechanisms. While the two arrhythmias may coexist in the same patient, in most cases, during long-term follow-up, they have different natural courses. In patients with documented atrial flutter only, isthmus ablation is usually curative.

In fact in such patients, quality of life frequently improves, probably as a result of the abolition of flutter and of the lower number of symptomatic episodes of AF, in particular those needing treatment by electrical cardioversion. CT-isthmus ablation is a questionable form of therapy in patients with heart disease, particularly if they continue to present with AF during antiarrhythmic drug treatment. In patients in whom therapy is unsuccessful (frequent AF relapses and/or compromised quality of life,) pulmonary-vein isolation or an ablate and pace strategy should be proposed only as a second-line therapy.
