Abstract

A man with congestive heart failure, atrial fibrillation and increasing dyspnoea on exertion was shown to have a large right atrial thrombus and multiple pulmonary emboli. The patient was anticoagulated and a subsequent echocardiogram showed that the thrombus was no longer present. This report demonstrates the need for echocardiography in patients presenting with pulmonary emboli and questions the value of anticoagulation in patients with intracavitary thrombi.
