The place of fibrinolysis in the treatment of mechanical valvular prostheses is still much discussed. The aim of this work is to define the role of transoesophageal echocardiography in risk stratification. This monocentric study draws on 49 cases of thrombolysis preceded by transoesophageal echocardiography (average age 62.1 years, 37 mitral, 11 aortic, 1… CONTINUE READING
