We report the detection of a thrombus 72 hours after mitral valvuloplasty through the use of the technique of Inoue. Images obtained by transesophageal echocardiography revealed its localization on the interatrial septum at the level of the transseptal puncture. Although the patient subsequently underwent surgery for the placement of a prosthetic valve in mitral position due to failure of the valvuloplasty, the thrombus resolved with conservative management.
