Abstract

Lef atrial thrombus formation during ablation of atrial fibrillation carries the risk of thrombo-embolic complications. We describe a case of a 55 year old male in whom thrombus formation was detected by intracardiac echocardiography. Thrombus was safely removed by aspiration into transseptal sheath.
