During standard transesophageal echocardiographic examinations in sinus rhythm (SR) patients, the left atrial appendage (LAA) is not routinely assessed with Doppler. Despite having a SR, it is still possible to have irregular activity in the LAA. This situation is even more important for SR patients where assessment of the left atrium is often foregone. We describe a case where we encountered this situation and briefly review how to assess the left atrium and its appendage in such a case scenario.
