Thrombosis around intravenous catheters are often found in daily practice, and their treatment must be considered if they are mobile or large” Kubota et al (2016).

Abstract:

Thrombosis around intravenous catheters are often found in daily practice, and their treatment must be considered if they are mobile or large. However, in such giant thrombosis cases as this one, it is considered that thrombolytic therapy is ineffective and that immediate surgical resection is the best choice of treatment. The patient had a very uniquely-shaped right atrial thrombus.
