Maintaining INR 3.5 to4 with warfarin there is no chance of throwing clots while having atrial flutter. Anti phospholipid syndrome is a mineable to all these problems you have described. You are on the right path of using anticoagulation along with conventional treatment for it. You need something more for anti phospholipid syndrome. A good internist need to be consulted
