ABSTRACT

Background: atrial fibrillation is a major cause of thrombus formation within the left atrium (LA) and left atrial appendage (LAA). In patients with LA/LAA thrombus by transesophageal echocardiography, current guidelines recommend vitamin K antagonist treatment. At present, data on the efficacy of direct oral anticoagulants in the resolution of LA/LAA thrombi are scarce. Case presentation: we here describe a case of LA thrombus resolution in a patient treated with rivaroxaban. Conclusions: our case report adds to the evidence that rivaroxaban is effective in LA thrombus resolution.
