Doctors at Mayo Clinic provide care for you as a whole person. They spend time to learn about you and work with you to provide a personalized treatment plan — care tailored to your specific needs.

Treatment expertise

Advanced diagnosis and treatment

Mayo Clinic doctors trained in heart rhythm conditions have experience diagnosing and treating atrial flutter and other heart rhythm conditions. Doctors may order several tests to determine the cause and severity of your condition and determine the most appropriate treatment for your condition. Tests may include an electrocardiogram (ECG), chest X-ray, echocardiogram, Holter monitor, event recorder and a stress test.

Treatment for atrial flutter at Mayo Clinic can involve medication therapy, cardiac ablation, cardioversion or other advanced treatment options, depending on what doctors determine is appropriate for your condition.
