Whether the activation sequence of the right or left atrium plays a role in the morphology of the flutter wave in common atrial flutter is not completely understood. We present two patients with common counterclockwise atrial flutter in whom changes in the left atrial activation sequence produced significant changes in flutter wave polarity (+ to - and - to -/+ biphasic) without a change in the activation sequence within the right atrium. These cases highlight the possible role of alterations of the interatrial connections in the genesis of atypical manifestations of common atrial flutter.
