PMID:  2082139     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
A 54-year-old man with a history of myocardial infarction presented with recurrent transient ischemic attacks 7 yr after the acute event. The emboli originated from a left ventricular thrombus despite adequate oral anticoagulant therapy. The thrombus was best detected with magnetic resonance imaging and had to be removed by surgery.
