Abstract

Objective: The difference of the conduction velocity (CV) around the tricuspid valve annulus between the counter-clockwise (CCW) atrial flutter and the clockwise (CW) atrial flutter has not been well clarified. This study was undertaken to evaluate the CV and the conducting area (CA) per millisecond around the tricuspid valve annulus using the electroanatomical mapping.
