Introduction: The combination of the aging of the population and improved survival after acute myocardial infarction has created a rapid growth in the number of patients currently living with chronic heart failure, with a concomitant increase in morbidity and mortality. Case Presentation: We present two case reports of post-myocardial infarction sequel leading to ischemic cardiomyopathy and peripartum cardiomyopathy leading to biventricular mural thrombi formation and provide a brief review of literature regarding their etiopathogenesis and management. Discussion: There are other causes of dilated cardiomyopathies which could be transient like peripartum cardiomyopathy. The development of biventricular mural thrombi is rare, and it mainly increases the risk of embolization in the systemic and pulmonary circulations.
