Abstract

We report a case of simultaneous right and left atrial appendage thrombi in a 76-year-old-man with atrial fibrillation. Although transesophageal echocardiography is considered a routine diagnostic procedure, complete and comprehensive visualization of both atrial appendages is of paramount importance, particularly with the introduction of new therapeutic options like left atrial appendage exclusion devices. We expect to raise awareness among clinicians of the prevalence and implications of bilateral atrial appendage thrombi in common clinical practice.
