Evaluation of left atrial appendage by transoesophageal echocardiography before elective cardioversion of atrial fibrillation is a standard procedure in patients who are in fibrillation for more than 48 hours and are either not receiving or receiving suboptimal anticoagulation therapy. Thrombi formed in right atrial appendage may dislodge and result in pulmonary or systemic embolism, later in patients with atrial septal defects or large patent foramen ovale.
