Figure 1: (a and b) Transthoracic echocardiography and transesophageal echocardiography figures of a 75-year-old male patient at sinus rhythm with dilated cardiomyopathy and history of diabetes mellitus, coronary artery disease and peripheral artery disease. Left ventricle spontaneous echo contrast grade 2, left atrium spontaneous echo contrast grade 2, and left atrial appendage spontaneous echo contrast grade 3 were registered. Left ventricular end diastolic diameter was 67 mm, left atrium diameter 52 mm, and left ventricular ejection fraction was 30%. In (a), an apical left ventricle mural thrombus of 25 mm × 2 mm is depicted by transthoracic echocardiography. In (b) in a transesophageal echocardiography image of the same patient, a spherical mobile thrombus of 4 mm × 5 mm dimension is seen in left atrial appendage
