Abstract

This study assesses the efficacy of oral anticoagulation in resolving left atrial appendage (LAA) thrombi and evaluates clinical outcomes of percutaneous mitral valvuloplasty after resolution of LAA thrombi compared with mitral valve replacement. Warfarin therapy is successful in resolving LAA thrombi; percutaneous mitral valvuloplasty after resolution of LAA thrombi is an effective alternative to surgical treatment.
