Biventricular and Left Atrial Free Floating Thrombi in a Patient Diagnosed with Fulminant Myocarditis Managed with Thrombectomy and Left Ventricular Assist Device Implantation

The majority of acute viral myocarditis cases are subclinical and self-limiting in both adults and children. However, acute fulminant myocarditis (AFM) has a fatal course due to the rapid development into acute heart failure, cardiogenic shock or serious arrhythmias. Cardiac thrombus formation is an important factor affecting the prognosis of these patients. We present a patient who was diagnosed as AFM with multiple free floating intracardiac thrombi and aimed to explore the clinical characteristics and the treatment of AFM.
