Research Study Summary

A clinical trial to evaluate treatments using tricuspid isthmus imaging with Cartosound for patients with Atrial Flutter

Research Study Title

Tricuspid Isthmus Architecture as Imaged by CARTOsound, Determines Ablation Times in Patients With Typical Atrial Flutter


The investigators propose a third hypothesis based on the anatomic observations made in pathological studies. The investigators hypothesize that the anatomic architecture determines the functional properties of the TV-IVC isthmus. As a result,

• Muscular bundles are preferential routes of conduction through the TV-IVC isthmus. The isthmus acts like a series of discreet conduction routes rather than as a sheet of tissue.

The muscular bundles form selective targets for ablation and therefore the entire anatomic line need not be ablated. This has direct implications for ablation of the isthmus.
