      Effect of duration of anticoagulation in the incidence of stroke in patients with left-ventricular Thrombus.
      In our study, we found that long-term anticoagulation (LTA, >12 months) was associated with lower risk of stroke than was short-term anticoagulation (STA) in a cohort of 98 patients with left ventricular thrombus (LVT). In a Letter to the Editor, in a large well-conducted study, Goh et al

      investigated the generalizability of the results in an Asian population, reporting no differences in the incidence of stroke in patients who received STA versus those who received LTA. We reckon that differences in the duration of follow-up and in the patients’ thromboembolic risk may explain, at least partly, the apparently discrepant findings reported by Goh et al.
