Intraluminal mobile thrombus of the descending aorta are rare disorders. They are at high risk for peripheral embolism and therefore indication for treatment is mandatory. We report on a 54-year-old patient with peripheral arterial embolization who was treated by surgical thrombus removement by thoracotomy and staged peripheral bypass grafting. New diagnostic tools are presented, therapy and prognosis are discussed.
