PMID:  15227239     Owner:  NLM     Status:  PubMed-not-MEDLINE    
We report a free-floating left atrial thrombus detected by 2-dimensional echocardiography in a patient with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. Two-dimensional echocardiography permitted definitive diagnosis, thereby indicating emergency cardiac surgery. To our knowledge, this is the first reported detection of a free-floating left atrial thrombus by 2-dimensional echocardiography in a patient with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy.
