Auricular flutter is an arrhythmia well known as an electrocardiographic entity. It is most often discovered upon study of patients with very rapid heart action, especially in rheumatic cardiacs and thyrocardiacs, and in patients with recent myocardial infarction. The electrocardiographic characteristics and the physiologic features of auricular flutter are described in all general medical texts,1 but the clinical features are only briefly referred to even in the cardiology texts.3 It is generally indicated, particularly in the American literature, that flutter lies between auricular tachycardia and auricular fibrillation in duration, incidence of organic heart disease, and rapidity of auricular rate.
