The characteristics of the left ventricle and coronary arteries associated with left ventricular (LV) thrombus in patients with recent anterior acute myocardial infarction were defined. Of 77 patients studied, 35 (46%) had LV thrombi. The presence of LV thrombus was not correlated to the extent of coronary artery disease. The frequency of LV thrombus progressively increased with groups of increasing wall motion abnormality as determined by the extent of akinesia and dyskinesia (%AD) (%AD 0 to… CONTINUE READING
