Responses:
Nickname:  SuperScan
Interpretation:  There is left atrial appendage enlargement and low flow. EKG looks regular so no AF. It would be nice to have the dimensions displayed.

Nickname:  Cord
Interpretation:  Some sort of pseudoaneurysm of the left atrium, or giant dilatation of the appendage it would guess.

Nickname:  phillip
Interpretation:   I am very perplexed by this clip. This could be a appendage clot,lung clot, or anyeursm with a clot....Adios.

Nickname:  techscan
Interpretation:  It is not the atrial appendage because during the TEE portion the neck of the aneurysm is open adjacent to the aortic valve and then when the doctor rotates the probe to view the MV the neck is closed.

Nickname:  slow bill
Interpretation:  There appears to be "To and Fro" flow noted in the color Doppler view. Looks like a large pseudo vs heomoparicardium to me. Patient may have had penetrating wound or injury.

Nickname:  Annebe
Interpretation:  looks like a rt atrial wall rupture posible causes include iatrogenic, or chest wound. Let us know!

Nickname:  amin amin
Interpretation:  pseudoaneurysm of the posterior wall

Nickname:  CUAS
Interpretation:  LARGE PSEUDO-ANEURYSM WITH SEC.

Nickname:  oss
Interpretation:  atrial pseudoaneurysm

Nickname:  Magee
Interpretation:  This looks like a left ventricular puncture or rupture.

Nickname:  plutorising
Interpretation:  The LAA seems greatly enlarged and "smoke" due to low flow state.

Nickname:  Sophie
Interpretation:  LAA enlargement? possibly aneurysmal.

Nickname:  ANNE
Interpretation:  Dilated or aneurysmal Left atrial appendage with spontaneous echo contrast.

Nickname:  gerri
Interpretation:  pseudoanyrusm is present. myxoma is clearly seen in image and is attached to the triscupid valve

Nickname:  MAGANTI
Interpretation:  LARGE LAA DENSE SEC/ALMOST TROMBUS. RT VENTRICULAR APICAL THROMBUS/?? MYXOMA

Nickname:  heartthrob
Interpretation:  posterior LA wall rupture seconday to trauma with severe edema/aneurysm. You got me..never seen this before...

Nickname:  Jmann
Interpretation:  LT APEND ACUTE THROMBUS WITH DILATION LV APICAL MASS SEPTAL MOTION IMPAIRMENT

Nickname:  Gone west
Interpretation:  Where do we see the actual interpretation?

Nickname:  Lizzie
Interpretation:  LA Pseudoaneurysm.

Nickname:  Echodiva
Interpretation:  Large Aneurysm with large myxoma,thrombusis also seen

Nickname:  brooke
Interpretation:  rupture of Left atrial wall forming a large pseudo-aneurysm, just a wild guess--not really sure

Nickname:  lee
Interpretation:  PSEUDOANEURYSM OF LV LATERAL WALL

Nickname:  Bigben
Interpretation:  rupture of LA on the left side with huge pericardial hematoma around, LA and LV

Nickname:  sgarg
Interpretation:  appears to be dilated LAA with thrombus

Nickname:  Tony
Interpretation:  LAA enlargement. Is that a clot?

Nickname:  elpida12
Interpretation:  rupture and giant aneurism of left atrium

Nickname:  Amy
Interpretation:  rupture of LA and pseudoaneurysm

Nickname:  Imica
Interpretation:  LA pseudoaneurism

Nickname:  Laurend884
Interpretation:  pseudoaneurysm possibly due to trauma to the Left Atrium. With spontaneous contrast noted in the TEE due to the decreased flow state.

Nickname:  tbright88
Interpretation:  Psuedoanuerysm of the L.A.or enlarged LA appendage

Nickname:  getu
Interpretation:  left atrial appendage.

Nickname:  D Perez
Interpretation:  It seems as though the atrial appendage is enlarged. There is spontaneous contrast in the left heart in general and it almost looks like there is a small thrombus in the LV.

Nickname:  Singleton
Interpretation:  The biggest aneurysm I've ever seen! Holy spontaneous contrast! Talk about a blown out LAA

Nickname:  Talent
Interpretation:  This appears to be a pseudoaneurysm of the LA Posterior wall extending to the LV Lateral wall. Spontaneous contrast is present in all views which suggest possible thrombus formation. Thrombus is already apparent in the LV apex.

Nickname:  rconnolly
Interpretation:  spontaneous contrast

Nickname:  K.Redd
Interpretation:  rupture of the free wall causing spontaneous contrast

Nickname:  JWhittemore
Interpretation:  LV apical thrombus.

Nickname:  eCarroll
Interpretation:  I believe this is either a severely dilated LAA or perhaps a pseudoaneurysm. Spontaneous contrast is prevalent and there is evidence of thrombus.

Nickname:  SRobinson
Interpretation:  TEE looks to show a very enlarged LAA with spontaneous contrast.

Nickname:  ldunbar
Interpretation:  Looks like it could possibly be an extremely large left atrial appendage with spontaneous contrast, but a much more plausible assumption would be a pseudoaneurysm.

Nickname:  ROCK
Interpretation:  SPONTANEOUS CONTRAST IN ENLARGED LAA

Nickname:  SKelley
Interpretation:  Looks like a enlarged LAA filled with spontaneous contrast

Nickname:  Chris
Interpretation:  large LA pseudoaneurysm with flow present possibly from trauma

Nickname:  Al
Interpretation:  Atrial myxoma

Nickname:  Cava2007
Interpretation:  LA enlargement.

Nickname:  Cava2007
Interpretation:  LA enlargement

Nickname:  tornado
Interpretation:  LV pseudo aneurysm with LV apical thrombus indicated by contrast?

Nickname:  PG
Interpretation:  LA Psedoaneurysm near LAA, Narrow neck with Blood shunt

Nickname:  zizi
Interpretation:  Dilated or aneurysmal Left atrial appendage with spontaneous echo contrast- "smoke" due to low flow state.

Nickname:  SANDY C
Interpretation:  I would say this is a remarkably severely enlarged LAA with thrombus present

Nickname:  
Interpretation:  Maybe left atrial giant pseudoaneurizm with low flow and clot formation
