Abstract

We present a rare case of thrombus adhering to the puncture site of the atrial septum during left atrial appendage closure. By discussing the case, we suggest that some preventive measurements be taken during left atrial appendage closure and that conventional transesophageal echocardiography for the atrial septal puncture site be performed after the delivery sheath is removed.
