Abstract

A case of a 52-year-old woman with complete atrioventricular block, treated with pacemaker implantation, is presented. During the control transthoracic echo exam we observed floating structure connected with the endocavitary electrode. After diagnostic examinations bacterial vegetation was excluded and thrombus was diagnosed. The therapy with unfractionated heparin and warfarin was successfully performed.
