Atrial flutter is more common in elderly males. Men are affected 2.5 times more than women. The incidence of new cases every year in the USA is 200,000.
Epidemiology and Demographics
- The incidence of atrial flutter is approximately 36 per 100,000 individuals worldwide.
- The prevalence of atrial flutter is approximately 3·7 to 13·4 new cases per 1000 person-years in men and from 2·5 to 8·6 new cases per 1000 person-years in women.
Case-fatality rate/Mortality rate
- In [year], the incidence of [disease name] is approximately [number range] per 100,000 individuals with a case-fatality rate/mortality rate of [number range]%.
- The case-fatality rate/mortality rate of [disease name] is approximately [number range].
- Patients of all age groups may develop atrial flutter.
- The incidence of atrial flutter increases with age; the median age at diagnosis is 62-72 years.
- There is no racial predilection to [disease name].
- Atrial flutter usually affects individuals of the Caucasians race. African-American individuals are less likely to develop [disease name].
- Atrial flutter affects men and women equally.
