Abstract

Interruption of oral anticoagulation is discussed often, particularly in the outpatient setting. We present a 66- year-old woman who developed a thrombus in the left atrial appendage under bridging therapy with fondaparinux. With this case report we would like to emphasize that off-label use of fondaparinux should not be administered to patients at high risk for systemic embolism

Keywords: Atrial fibrillation, bridging therapy, fondaparinux, left atrial thrombus
