AIMS Lambl's excrescences (valvular strands) have been associated with an increased embolic risk. In previous studies, valvular strands have mostly been detected by transoesophageal echo (TEE). The current high-resolution echo systems allow better detection of valvular strands often even by transthoracic echocardiography (TTE). We attempted to determine the(More)
