oa Cardiovascular Journal of Africa - Surgical cure of atrial flutter

 

Abstract

Atrial flutter and atrial fibrillation are associated with palpitations, impaired haemodynamics and a risk of thrombo-embolism, all of which can be corrected by a new surgical procedure. Cox's maze procedure was used to correct surgically a symptomatic paroxysmal atrial flutter in a 31-year-old woman who required closure of a secundum atrial septal defect. Six months postoperatively, she remains asymptomatic in normal sinus rhythm on no medication.
