[Pulmonary embolism complicated with right-sided intracardiac thrombus entrapped in a patent foramen ovale].

Abstract

With the increasing possibilities of and clinical demand for diagnostic imaging in the management of acute cardiovascular disease, the probability of uncovering complicated cases increases. These cases are often challenging to the clinician in determining the best method of treatment. We present a case of pulmonary embolism in which an intracardiac thrombus entrapped in a patent foramen ovale without penetrating it was discovered. The patient received thrombolytic therapy without complications and was discharged in good condition six days after thrombolysis.
