Abstract

A case of a 70 year old female with permanent atrial fibrillation and a history of stroke is presented. Echocardiography showed the presence of an oval mass in the left atrium which suggested thrombus or atrial myxoma. The patient underwent urgent cardiac surgery during which a long thrombus, originating from the left atrial appendage, was successfully removed.
