A 51 year old man with an innominate artery aneurysm presented with claudication and ischemia of the right forearm and hand. Two-dimensional echocardiography visualized the saccular aneurysm and a pedunculated mobile thrombus within it that were not seen during aortic arch angiography. Two-dimensional echocardiography, shown to be useful in identifying intracardiac masses and aortic aneurysms, may be important in selecting patients with increased risk of embolization.
