Abstract

We report a case of a 53-year-old man with acute myocardial infarction complicated on the 5th day of hospitalisation by systemic arterial embolism and renal infarction secondary to left ventricle thrombus. Clinical manifestations included: acute onset, nausea, vomiting, abdomen and flank pain. The diagnosis was confirmed by imaging findings: echocardiography and angio-CT performed during hospitalisation. Pathogenesis, clinical manifestation, prognosis and treatment of left ventricular thrombus and arterial embolism as a complication of myocardial infarction have been discussed.
