Video 5-1-1 (AB): (A) Apical 2-chamber view recorded in a patient with prior myocardial infarction and a large left ventricular apical aneurysm. Echodensity consistent with thrombus fills the aneurysmal area. (B) Microbubble contrast-enhanced apical 4-chamber view showing a protruding, rounded filling defect adjacent to the apical portion of the septum. In the presence of a focal wall motion abnormality in this segment, thrombus is highly likely as the etiology.
