Sixty-year-old woman admitted with dyspnea and cough. Three weeks ago she underwent primary stenting for acute anterior myocardial infarction and recieved antiplatelet therapy (clopidogrel). Echocardiography and left ventriculography revealed left ventricular segmental dysfunction at anterolateral-apical region but no thrombus. On last admission, despite the clopidogrel therapy, echocardiography showed giant-partly mobil thrombus obliterated half of the left ventricle. Slow infusion of… Expand
