The upper turnover site in the reentry circuit of common atrial flutter

, : The upper turnover site in the reentry circuit of common atrial flutter. American Journal of Cardiology 78(12): 1439-1442

The upper turnover site of the reentry circuit of common atrial flutter was examined with the uses of atrial activation mapping and extrastimulus techniques during atrial flutter. The findings suggest that it is anterior to the orifice of the superior vena cava, i.e., between the superior vena cava and tricuspid annulus.
