It is important to identify residual slow conduction and minimize the chance of resumption of conduction after right atrial isthmus ablation to reduce the chance of recurrence of atrial flutter (AFL). The aim of this article is to discuss the best possible way of confirming a bi-directional isthmus conduction (BIC) block after ablation of an isthmus-dependent AFL. A combination of activation and double potential mapping seems to be the most practical way of acutely confirming the BIC block.
