Angiocardiographic Demonstration of Occlusive Auricular Thrombi in Dogs
Simulated occlusive auricular thrombi were produced in six dogs by surgically invaginating the left auricular appendage. Angiocardiographic studies were performed in five of the dogs and in each case revealed these thrombi as clear cut filling defects. The significance and clinical application of these observations is discussed.
