This transthoracic apical clip shows a mobile density in the LV cavity. It is challenging to say based on this single clip whether this is a thrombus or a segment of the papillary muscle. The patient has been on therapeutic doses of warfarin for the mechanical mitral valve that can be seen. Also, other clips from this study more reliably demonstrate that this is likely a segment of the papillary muscle.
