Among the wide range of treatments, replacement or repair of the valve are among the standard treatments. This treatment has many side effects that can be prevented by adhering to a proper diet. The present reports a rare case of mitral valve thrombosis.
Case Report. A 50-year-old female patient undergoes mitral valve replacement (mechanical) and tricuspid valve replacement (mechanical) dated 2018. After discharge, she was treated with 5 mg Warfarin and 80 mg ASA. She returned to the hospital due to progressive shortness of breath. A rare complication of mitral valve thrombosis was diagnosed.
Conclusion. Mitral mechanical valve thrombosis is a rare but dangerous complication. Although thrombosis is closely associated with anticoagulant drug use, this study and similar studies have shown that there is usually no clear relationship between INR and thrombosis.
