Am J Cardiol. 1995 Jul 15;76(3):186-9. doi: 10.1016/s0002-9149(99)80058-7.

Abstract

In summary, left atrial thrombus occurs with disproportionately high frequency in patients hospitalized with atrial flutter. Male gender and a left ventricular ejection fraction < 40% are predictors of left atrial thrombus formation in such patients.
