Abstract: Prosthetic valve thrombosis (PVT) is an uncommon but serious cause of morbidity and mortality after cardiac valve implantation. The most common cause leading to PVT is inadequate anticoagulation. Royal Darwin Hospital is a major referral centre for the Top End of Australia and is unique in having a high burden of rheumatic heart disease (RHD) requiring valve surgery, issues with adherence with oral anticoagulants, and the absence of onsite cardiothoracic facility.
