Left ventricular thrombi are mostly seen after complicated myocardial infarction, endocarditis, and myocarditis. Left ventriculotomy is the most common approach for removing a left ventricular thrombus and treating an aneurysm. However, it may occur without a ventricular aneurysm. Myectomy may cause many cardiac complications for vulnerable myocardium. Herein, we describe the case of a 51-year-old male treated with the successfully transaortic cardioscopic approach for left ventricular thrombectomy with a mobile thrombus and no myocardial aneurysm.
