[Significance of atrial fibrillation, left atrial thrombus and severity of stenosis for risk of systemic embolism in patients with mitral stenosis].

Abstract

The prognostic significance of atrial fibrillation, left atrial thrombus and the severity of mitral stenosis (MS) for systemic embolism was evaluated in 142 consecutive patients with MS (male 61, female 81; mean age 51 +/- 10 years) who were referred for cardiac catheterization. The relationships between systemic embolization, atrial fibrillation, left… (More)
