ABSTRACT

We present the case of a young man who has suffered from recurrent systemic thromboembolism since he developed an acute interior wall myocardial infarction at the age of 27. A large elongated, pendunculated left ventricular thrombus was found by two dimensional echocardiography and was successfully removed by open heart surgery.

Mentions: On July 3, 1982, the patient was admitted to the hospital because of abdominal pain. The abdomen was tender and distended, and the bowel sound was diminished. Under the impression of mesenteric artery thromboembolism heparinization and subsequent coumadinization was done. To rule out the possibility of embolization from the heart two dimensional echocardiography was done. This reveled a large, pedunculated mass which had its base in the apex of the left ventricle and its end freely movable in the left ventricular outflow tract (Fig. 2). The mitral valve leaflets were seen striking the mass during its motion. The mass was 7×3 cm. The mass reflected echoes which were dense compared with the lighter echoes from the myocardium. The outline of the mass was rather well defined and several daughter masses were noted to be budding from the main mass. The left ventricle was only slightly enlarged in size, and the apex and the distal septum were noted to be akinetic. Under the impression of either a left ventricular thrombus or a myxoma open heart surgery was performed on July 9, 1982.
