Abstract

We demonstrate that patients with left ventricular mural apical thrombi can safely undergo dobutamine stress echocardiography. These patients also have more severe wall motion abnormalities at rest compared with a group of patients with left ventricular dysfunction without evidence of apical thrombus.
