We describe two patients with free-floating left atrial ball thrombi with no evidence of cardiac disease except atrial fibrillation. One patient had experienced an embolic stroke, and the second patient had a history of stroke and peripheral thromboembolism. In each patient, the thrombi, which were not visible on transthoracic echocardiography, were detected by transesophageal echocardiography. Each patient underwent successful surgical removal using cardiopulmonary bypass.
