Özet

Thrombus in sinus of Valsalva is unusual reason for acute myocardial infarction. We demonstrated a case with floating thrombus in sinus of Valsalva obstructing the right coronary ostium intermittently, and causing cardiogenic shock. The patient was diagnosed with multiplane transesophageal echocardiography and treated successfully with surgical removal of mass. A homozygote polymorphism of plasminogen activator inhibitor (PAI) 1 4G/5G was found. This is the first report demonstrating a patient with PAI 1 polymorphism and thrombus of Valsalva complicated with cardiogenic shock. (Echocardiography 2011;28:E64-E167)
