A 57 year old man, with mitral valve disease and atrial fibrillation, underwent catheterization of the right and left sides of the heart. During the resting state, the brachial artery pressure showed an alternation, while the right ventricular pressure did not. This case demonstrates that alternation can occur even if there is atrial fibrillation and that alternation can occur irrespective of the sequence of electrical conduction.
