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.
