MeSH D054141

Ventricular flutter is an arrhythmia, more specifically a tachycardia affecting the ventricles with a rate over 200 beats/min. It is characterized on the ECG by a sinusoidal waveform without clear definition of the QRS and T waves. It has been considered as a possible transition stage between ventricular tachycardia and fibrillation, and is a critically unstable arrhythmia that can result in sudden cardiac death.

It can also occur in infancy[1], youth,[2] or as an adult.

It can be induced by programmed electrical stimulation.[3][4]
