Answer

Less common symptoms include angina, profound dyspnea, or syncope resulting from compromised left ventricular function. Thromboembolic events are possible with this arrhythmia. In addition, patients may have symptoms of the conditions that are causing the atrial flutter. These may be noncardiac (eg, hyperthyroidism or pulmonary disease) or cardiac.
