          Abstract

          Using a Medicare-based retrospective cohort study, the stroke risk in patients with atrial flutter (RR = 1.41) was determined to be greater than that in a control group (RR = 1.00) but less than that in an atrial fibrillation group (RR = 1.64). Furthermore, patients with atrial flutter who subsequently had an episode of atrial fibrillation had a higher risk of stroke (RR = 1.56) than patients with atrial flutter who never had a subsequent episode of atrial fibrillation (RR = 1.11).
