High acute success and low recurrence rate makes isthmus ablation a definitive therapy for patients with only AFL. However, a review of the literature suggests that, different aspects of this macro-reentrant circuit are still not entirely understood, while new information continues to emerge. The aim of this article is to discuss some gaps in our ?complete? understanding of isthmus-dependent AFL. Few hypotheses have been stated which are open to investigation. } }
