OBJECTIVES We sought to determine the relationship between clinical risk factors for systemic thromboembolism in patients with atrial fibrillation and the prevalence of left atrial (LA) spontaneous echocontrast (SEC) and LA thrombus (LAT). BACKGROUND Atrial fibrillation is associated with an increased risk of systemic thromboembolism. LA SEC and LAT also predict thromboembolic events. The relationship between clinical risk factors for systemic thromboembolism and prevalence of LA SEC and LAT… CONTINUE READING
