Abstract

Floating thrombi in the aortic arch are very rare, and often go under-diagnosed. Herein, a case of an 8-cm long thrombus in the aortic arch is reported. It was a floating, highly mobile thrombus attached to the atherosclerotic plaque in the proximal aortic arch. The patient was a 59-year-old woman with a history of hypertension. The thrombus was operatively removed, with a favorable outcome.
