Abstract

Atrial tachycardias occurring in young patients after surgery for congenital heart disease have been referred to as atrial flutter.1-4 Typical atrial flutter is usually found in patients aged >50 years with coronary artery or hypertensive cardiovascular disease, or both.5 Considering the different clinical setting for patients with typical atrial flutter5 in contrast to patients after operation for congenital heart disease,2-4 we evaluated the electrocardiographic features of atrial tachycardias in patients with postoperative congenital heart disease to see how many presented with typical atrial flutter.
