Flow Mapping Inside a Left Ventricular Aneurism: A Potential Tool to Demonstrate Thrombogenicity



We describe the use of vector flow mapping (VFM), a novel echocardiographic technique allowing intracardiac flow visualization, to quantify flow intensity inside a left ventricular aneurysm in a 68-year-old man. VFM successfully identified areas of stagnant flow corresponding to the wall region where a thrombus had been formed.
