To investigate risk factors for embolization in patients with echocardiographically detected left atrial thrombi and to evaluate thrombus development, we examined 29 patients with transesophageal and transthoracic echocardiography at two points during a follow-up of 18 months. We compared patients with a history of possible arterial embolization (n = 13)(More)
The embolic risk and changes of thrombus location and size were investigated in 29 consecutive patients with echocardiographically proven thrombi in the left atrium. Inclusion criteria were the visualization of a left atrial thrombus using transesophageal echocardiography. Transesophageal follow-up echocardiograms were performed at a mean period of 18(More)
