Atrial thrombosis as a late complication of cardiac surgery computed tomography appearance
Fishman J. E., Aviram G.
Department of Radiology University of Miami School of Medicine, Miami, FL, USA
We present two cases of large atrial thrombi diagnosed many years after cardiac surgery. In both cases, CT showed homogeneous non-enhancing masses. In one case the mass was immediately adjacent to an area of surgical repair; neither thrombus was in the atrial appendage, a more common location for thrombosis. The combination of appropriate clinical history and CT appearance should permit recognition of delayed postoperative intracardiac thrombosis.
