A case of LAF formed after a surgical Maze procedure is mentioned in the present study, which demonstrates the importance of a systematic approach to mapping and ablating atypical atrial flutter to prevent symptomatic arrhythmia from recurring. A typical atrial flutter is a normal arrhythmia characterized by macro-reentry based on a non-cavotricuspid isthmus. There are several different possible LA reentry circuits that require different pathways in patients with prior cardiac surgery procedures and in particular, after a surgical maze.
