Your Mayo Clinic care team

Mayo Clinic doctors trained in heart conditions (cardiologists), heart rhythm specialists (electrophysiologists) and heart surgeons (cardiovascular surgeons) work together as a team to provide coordinated, comprehensive care for people who have atrial flutter.

Individualized approach

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

Advanced diagnosis and treatment

In Mayo Clinic's Heart Rhythm Clinic, care providers work together as a multidisciplinary team to evaluate and treat people with a wide variety of heart rhythm disorders, including atrial flutter. Mayo Clinic providers use advanced imaging and mapping techniques that allow them to make prompt and accurate diagnoses, which may include referral to the Electrophysiology Laboratory.

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

Treatment for atrial flutter at Mayo Clinic can involve medication, cardiac ablation, cardioversion or other advanced treatment options, depending on the specific condition.
