Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The development of thrombus on the tricuspid valve is very rare in adulthood and it needs special attention in clinical practice as it can be confused with vegetation or a tumour. Embolisation due to thrombus may have an acute and unexpected course with a detrimental prognosis and a high death rate during the first 24 h after diagnosis. In this report, we presented a case of mobile tricuspid valve thrombus detected by transthoracic echocardiography that led to recurrent pulmonary embolism.
