Case Report Open Access


In the current case presentation, a patient with prosthetic mechanical mitral valve developed brain hemorrhage following head trauma. Cessation of anticoagulation treatment resulted in left atrial thrombus; patient presented with recurrent emboli events to major arteries that required recurrent embolectomy.
