A showering giant right atrial thrombus following COVID. An interesting
Case report and review of literature.
Abstract Since the COVID-19 outbreak in late 2018,
growing evidence supported the association between COVID-19 infection &
hypercoagulability. We report an interesting case of a right
atrial thrombus in a young female who sustained COVID-19 infection few
months before this diagnosis, as a result she required an open-heart
surgery to extract the thrombus. Introduction Mobile
atrial thrombi are rare to occur with few reported cases in literature,
since COVID has masked the face of the universe with a completely new
disease entity with multiple systemic affection, has also been strongly
linked with prothrombotic state, However, only very few counted cases of
atrial thrombi have been linked to COVID-19 infection.
