            External cardioversion is an established and very important tool to terminate symptomatic atrial flutter. The superiority of the biphasic waveform has been demonstrated for atrial flutter, but whether electrode position affects the efficacy of cardioversion in this population is not known. The aim of this trial was to evaluate whether anterior-lateral (A-L) compared with anterior-posterior (A-P) electrode position improves cardioversion results. Of 130 screened patients, 96 (72 men, mean age 62 ± 12 years) were included and randomly assigned to a cardioversion protocol with either A-L or A-P electrode position.
