Atrial Flutter Outlook
Living a normal life is possible for people with atrial flutter. Medications can control symptoms and the arrhythmia in most people. In many people, atrial flutter can be cured with radiofrequency catheter ablation.
If a person experiences atrial flutter and no underlying heart disease is found, the outlook is generally quite good. If underlying heart disease does exist, the atrial flutter is likely to recur. Therefore, a heart specialist (cardiologist) should be seen.
