ABSTRACT
Atrial tachyarrhythmias are relatively common but mostly self- limiting complications after cardiac surgeries. We report a case of atypical atrial flutter which developed early after the surgery for severe mitral regurgitation and patent foramen ovale. Arrhythmia could not be managed by conservative measures and compromised patient’s recovery. Atypical atrial flutter was safely terminated by radiofrequency ablation despite early post-operative period.
