Embolic Stroke with Visualization of “Paradoxical” Thrombus

Published on: 2017-03-06

Abstract

In cases of embolic stroke, paradoxical thromboembolic events are a frequent consideration and are thought to represent a significant proportion of strokes in patients under 55, especially those at risk for deep venous thrombosis (DVT) [1,2]. Nevertheless, it is extremely difficult to demonstrate clinically the presumed interatrial transport that underlies this particular stroke mechanism.
