dc.description.abstractENGLISH ABSTRACT: A 64-year-old white woman with moderately severe rheumatic mitral stenosis complicated by atrial fibrillation and recurrent systemic embolisation to the brain was found at operation to have a large 'free-floating' left atrial thrombus, as well as multiple left atrial appendage thrombi. These had not been detected by echocardiography. She also had significantly reduced left ventricular contractility on cine angiography, and right coronary artery atherosclerosis. She underwent successful mitral valve replacement and excision of the left atrial appendage.en_ZA
