Abstract

Systemic emboli occur in dilated cardiomyopathy (DC) at an annual rate of about 4%.1 Left ventricular thrombus is often considered the source for embolic events in DC.2 A relation between left ventricular thrombi and rate of embolic events, however, has not been found in a recent study.3 Left atrial thrombi may constitute an alternative source for systemic embolism in DC.4.
