  • [Title] Primary cardiac angiosarcoma.
  • Primary cardiac sarcoma is a rare clinical entity, with an incidence of 0.0001% in collected autopsy series.
  • Early heart transplantation and novel radiation therapy approaches may offer a survival benefit in nonmetastatic tumors, but up to 80% of the patients present with systemic metastasis at diagnosis.
  • Liposomal doxorubicin (PLD) has been shown to be useful in the treatment of soft tissue sarcomas, and our case supports its use in cardiac angiosarcoma.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Primary cardiac angiosarcoma: a fatal disease.
  • A 42-year-old man with a cardiac tamponade underwent an urgent pericardiotomy that showed tumoral tissue, covering the surface of the right atrium.
  • The tumor was then partially excised, and the histological examination revealed the presence of a moderately-differentiated angiosarcoma.
  • A new evaluation by cardiac MRI evidenced a local and distant (lung) progression of disease.
  • This paper confirms that cardiac angiosarcoma is a fatal disease, and the prognosis is usually 6-11 months from time of diagnosis.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Early detection and efficient therapy of cardiac angiosarcoma due to routine transesophageal echocardiography after cerebrovascular stroke.
  • Primary malignant cardiac tumors (cardiac angiosarcomas) are exceedingly rare.
  • Histologically, cardiac angiosarcoma was diagnosed.
  • Due to the fortuitous appearance of clinical signs indicative of stroke, cardiac angiosarcoma was diagnosed and effectively treated at an early, nonmetastatic, and therefore potentially curable stage.
  • Although cardiac angiosarcoma is a rare disease, it should be taken into consideration as a potential cause of cerebral embolic disease.

  • We report a case of cardiac angiosarcoma of the right atrium.
  • A cardiac tumor was diagnosed by computed tomography (CT), echocardiography, and cinecardiography.
  • Therefore a CT-guided transthoracic needle biopsy under CT fluoroscopic guidance for definitive diagnosis was performed after obtaining the patient's informed consent.
  • Pathohistologically, the tumor was diagnosed as a cardiac angiosarcoma.
  • The use of an intravenous infusion of contrast material contributed greatly to clear visualization of the tumor margin and cardiac lumen and assisted in easily and correctly advancing the needle toward the tumor.

  • Primary angiosarcoma of the heart is exceptionally rare.
  • Angiosarcoma of the heart often go undetected until late in the course of the disease as symptoms are insidious and available non-invasive imaging modalities lack specificity.
  • Recently, we experienced an angiosarcoma of the pericardium that presented hemorrhagic pericardial effusion initially, but progressed rapidly during short period.
  • Our case showed that, when initial diagnosis is not clear, early aggressive diagnostic modality such as surgical exploration or more frequent follow-up examination is needed for earlier detection and chance of targeted therapy.

  • [Title] A diagnostic pitfall: Angiosarcoma of the brain mimicking cavernous angioma.
  • Primary or secondary angiosarcoma in the central nervous system is rarely reported.
  • We present a rare case of cerebral angiosarcoma, which comprised both poorly-differentiated solid areas and well-differentiated areas that led to the misdiagnosis of cavernous angioma.
  • At a second surgery, the lesion was diagnosed as angiosarcoma involving the cerebellum, heart, femur, sacro-iliac bones and other locations.
  • An autopsy suggested that the angiosarcoma of the heart was the primary lesion, which was occult at the time of the initial operation.
  • Angiosarcoma may have areas with different degrees of differentiation and when a cavernous angioma is suspected histopathologically, the specimen should also be carefully explored for poorly-differentiated areas and the diagnosis of primary or secondary angiosarcoma considered.

  • [Title] Primary malignant tumors of the heart: four cardiovascular hormones decrease the number and DNA synthesis of human angiosarcoma cells.
  • BACKGROUND: A family of six cardiovascular hormones--atrial natriuretic peptide, brain natriuretic peptide, C-natriuretic peptide, long acting natriuretic peptide, vessel dilator and kaliuretic peptide--was investigated for the ability to decrease the number of human angiosarcoma cells.
  • METHODS AND RESULTS: Within 24 h, vessel dilator, long acting natriuretic peptide, kaliuretic peptide, atrial natriuretic peptide and their intracellular mediator cyclic GMP decreased the number of angiosarcoma cells by 61, 30, 29, 36 and 32%, respectively, and DNA synthesis by 68-85%.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Four cardiovascular hormones decrease the number of angiosarcoma cells within 24 h via inhibition of DNA synthesis mediated in part by cyclic GMP.

  • Imaging and histopathologic methods of diagnosis are considered, as well as references to cytogenetic analysis.
  • Surgery is the first treatment choice, but heart AS are frequently not completely resectable and concomitant metastases at the time of surgery are common, both usually leading to a dismal prognosis.
  • Chemotherapy, radiotherapy and even heart transplantation do not substantially improve the survival of these patients.

  • INTRODUCTION: Primary splenic angiosarcoma is a rare neoplasm of vascular origin carrying a very poor prognosis, partly due to its high metastatic potential.
  • We report the case of a 17-year-old woman who presented with rupture of a primary splenic angiosarcoma.
  • Clinical examination revealed severe tenderness in the left upper abdominal quadrant, a palpable abdominal mass, and hemodynamic instability with a systolic arterial blood pressure of 75 mmHg and heart rate of 135 beats per minute.
  • Histopathology showed a primary splenic angiosarcoma.
  • CONCLUSION: Primary splenic angiosarcoma is rare.

  • [Title] Comparison of plasma cardiac troponin I concentrations among dogs with cardiac hemangiosarcoma, noncardiac hemangiosarcoma, other neoplasms, and pericardial effusion of nonhemangiosarcoma origin.
  • OBJECTIVE: To determine whether plasma cardiac troponin I (cTnl) concentrations can be used to identify cardiac involvement in dogs with hemangiosarcoma, exclude cardiac hemangiosarcoma in dogs with noncardiac hemangiosarcoma, and identify cardiac hemangiosarcoma in dogs with pericardial effusion.
  • ANIMALS: 57 dogs (18 with confirmed [5 dogs] or suspected [13] cardiac hemangiosarcoma, 14 with confirmed hemangiosarcoma involving sites other than the heart [noncardiac hemangiosarcoma], 10 with pericardial effusion not caused by hemangiosarcoma, and 15 with noncardiac nonhemangiosarcoma neoplasms).
  • RESULTS: Median plasma cTnl concentration in dogs with cardiac hemangiosarcoma was significantly higher than the concentration in each of the other groups.
  • A plasma cTnl concentration > 0.25 ng/mL could be used to identify cardiac involvement in dogs with hemangiosarcoma at any site (sensitivity, 78%; specificity, 71 %).
  • A plasma cTnl concentration > 0.25 ng/mL could be used to identify cardiac hemangiosarcoma in dogs with pericardia effusion (sensitivity, 81%; specificity, 100%).
  • CONCLUSIONS AND CLINICAL RELEVANCE: The median plasma cTnl concentration was higher in dogs with cardiac hemangiosarcoma, compared with the median concentration in dogs with hemangiosarcoma at other sites, dogs with other neoplasms, and dogs with pericardial effusion not caused by hemangiosarcoma.
  • The plasma cTnl concentration may be used to identify cardiac involvement in dogs with hemangiosarcoma and to identify cardiac hemangiosarcoma in dogs with pericardial effusion.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] [Frequency of heart tumors and their histopathological correlation].
  • BACKGROUND: The presentation of heart tumors is very uncommon.
  • Eighty percent of primary heart neoplasias are benign, and myxomas represent the first cause in frequency among adult populations.
  • Due to the frequency of presentation of these tumors, it is common to make the clinical/surgical diagnosis without obtaining histopathologic confirmation.
  • Our objective was to determine the frequency of presentation of heart tumors and its correlation between the surgical/clinical and histopathologic diagnosis in our Institute.
  • METHODS: This is a case series with 16 patients with cardiac tumors treated surgically at the Department of Cardiothoracic Surgery during a 4-year period.
  • Clinical presentation was predominantly of congestive heart failure.
  • Clinical diagnosis was determined in 15 patients (94%) and just one case of intracardiac thrombus (6%), whereas the histopathologic diagnosis reported myxoma in only 11 cases (68.8%), three patients with intra-cardiac thrombus (18.7%) and two patients with sarcomas (12.5%), leiomiosarcoma and angiosarcoma, respectively.
  • We found a positive correlation between the clinical diagnosis and the histopathology results.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Even though myxomas represent the most frequent proportion of presentation in heart tumors, histopathological confirmation is necessary for diagnosis.

  • BACKGROUND: Sarcomas arising in the heart or the great vessels are rare entities.
  • METHODS: Between January 1993 and September 2006, of 1,429 patients registered to the Sarcoma Center, 14 had a primary sarcoma of the heart or large vessels.
  • The most frequently encountered histologic subtypes were leiomyosarcoma and angiosarcoma.
  • After a median follow-up of 14.5 months (range, 2-156), three patients were alive with no evidence of disease 11, 52, and 156 months after diagnosis.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Patients with primary sarcomas of the heart and the large vessels were of a young age, and more than half of them presented with advanced disease.

  • In this overview, current published studies concerning malignant neoplasms of the heart are reviewed, together with some insights into their aetiology, diagnosis and management.
  • We searched medline using the subject 'cardiac neoplasms'.
  • Sarcomas are the most common cardiac tumours and include myxosarcoma, liposarcoma, angiosarcoma, fibrosarcoma, leiomyosarcoma, osteosarcoma, synovial sarcoma, rhabdomyosarcoma, neurofibrosarcoma, malignant fibrous histiocytoma and undifferentiated sarcoma.
  • The classic symptoms of cardiac tumours are intracardiac obstruction, signs of systemic embolisation, and systemic or constitutional symptoms.
  • Echocardiography and angiography are essential diagnostic tools for evaluating cardiac neoplasms.
  • Successful treatment for benign cardiac tumours is usually achieved by surgical resection.
  • In conclusion, there are limited published data concerning cardiac neoplasms.
  • Therefore, a high level of suspicion is required for early diagnosis.

  • [Title] Malignant primary cardiac tumors: review of a single institution experience.
  • BACKGROUND: Primary cardiac sarcomas are uncommon.
  • The authors undertook to review the Mayo Clinic's experience with primary cardiac sarcomas consisting of 34 patients seen over a 32-year period.
  • METHODS: The patient database at the Mayo Clinic was searched to identify patients with malignant tumors of the heart seen during the 32-year period between 1975 and 2007.
  • Thirty-four patients with primary cardiac sarcomas were identified and their medical records reviewed for details pertaining to presenting symptoms, staging modalities, treatment approaches, and outcomes.
  • The mean duration of symptoms at the time of diagnosis was 3.6 months.
  • The most common histologic type was angiosarcoma (41%).
  • Patients with angiosarcoma had a lower survival compared with patients with other histologies (5 months vs 17 months; P = .01).
  • CONCLUSIONS: Cardiac sarcomas remain a rare but lethal disease.
  • Compared with extracardiac sarcomas, the prognosis for patients with cardiac sarcomas remains very poor.

  • [Title] Imprint cytology of primary cardiac sarcomas: a report of 3 cases.
  • Primary cardiac sarcomas are rare instances and only occasionally documented in the cytologic literature.
  • Usually, the diagnosis of these rare lesions can be made at echocardiography, aspiration biopsy cytology, cardiac biopsy, and open cardiac surgery (intraoperative diagnosis).
  • In this study, cytologic configurations and immunohistochemistry for 3 primary cardiac sarcomas (rhabdomyosarcoma, angiosarcoma, and malignant fibrous histiocytoma) were revealed.
  • In angiosarcoma (right atrium), small clusters of anisocytotic spindle-shaped tumor cells appeared as vascular-like structures and hemosiderin-laden macrophages in many erythrocyte-rich backgrounds.
  • This study elucidated the cellular characteristics and immunohistochemistry for cardiac sarcomas using imprint smears as an aid to cytopathologic diagnosis.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] [Malignant primary cardiac tumors in childhood and adolescence].
  • Primary heart tumors are uncommon in children.
  • Among malignant cardiac tumors, sarcoma (rhabdomyosarcoma, angiosarcoma, synovial sarcoma) and lymphoma (Burkitt's lymphoma, large B-cell lymphoma, lymphoblastic lymphoma) predominate.
  • There are few published pediatric series on malignant primary cardiac tumors.
  • We report here 3 observations of primary malignant cardiac tumors, 2 cases of sarcoma (angiosarcoma and synovial sarcoma) and 1 case of Burkitt's lymphoma.
  • A precise pathological diagnosis is necessary for the proper management of these patients.
  • Surgery should be as complete as possible because of the lack of chemotherapy sensitivity of some sarcomas, mainly angiosarcoma and synovial sarcoma.
  • Therefore, the prognosis of cardiac sarcoma remains poor.
  • For primary cardiac lymphoma, management should not be different from lymphoma in other locations.

  • [Title] Epidemiological and pathological characteristics of cardiac tumors: a clinical study of 242 cases.
  • The purpose of this study was to review the current clinical experience and pathological characteristics of cardiac tumors.
  • We retrospectively reviewed 33,108 consecutive cases of cardiac operations performed at our institution from October 1996 to March 2005.
  • There were 242 cases confirmed histologically as cardiac tumors.
  • Among them, 234 patients were diagnosed with primary heart tumors, revealing a prevalence of 0.71% among the corresponding period cardiac operations.
  • Of primary cardiac tumors, the incidence of benign neoplasm was much higher than malignant masses (90.6% vs. 9.4%, P<0.01).
  • The most common benign cardiac tumor was myxoma (86.8%).
  • Mesenchymoma and angiosarcoma were the most common primary malignant cardiac tumors.
  • The prevalence rates of cardiac tumors were quite different among age groups.
  • All the secondary cardiac tumors were located in the right side of the heart.
  • This study, using a relatively large sample, reveals the clinical incidences and pathological characteristics of various cardiac tumors in the Chinese population.

  • [Title] [Clinicopathologic studies of 11 cases of primary cardiac valve tumors].
  • OBJECTIVE: To study the clinicopathologic features of primary cardiac valve tumors.
  • RESULTS: Primary cardiac valve tumors were uncommon and accounted for only 3% (11/426) of all primary cardiac tumors.
  • The tumor subtypes included papillary fibroelastoma (4/11), cavernous hemangioma (4/11), glomus tumor (1/11), angiosarcoma (1/11) and hamartoma (1/11).
  • The diagnosis was established by preoperative echocardiography in 7 patients.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Preoperative diagnosis of primary cardiac valve tumors can be difficult due to lack of detailed information related to this group of lesions.
  • Although benign cardiac valve tumors carry a good prognosis, the clinical outcome may be disastrous as a result of hemodynamic disturbances.

  • Infantile hepatic hamangioendothelioma type II is similar to angiosarcoma in terms of histomorphology and behavior.
  • Various presentations of this lesion have been reported in the literature, e.g. cases with a hepatic mass, cutaneous hemangiomas, heart failure, etc.
  • The two jejunal masses and the hepatic lesion were diagnosed as angiosarcoma histomorphologically (IHHE type II), and were positive for vascular markers (CD31 and CD34) on immunohistochemistry.

  • [Title] Primary cardiac sarcoma.
  • BACKGROUND: The presentation, management, and outcome of patients with primary cardiac sarcomas are not well defined.
  • Furthermore, the role of adjuvant therapy has not been delineated in the management of primary cardiac sarcomas.
  • METHODS: Patients with primary cardiac sarcoma and noncardiac sarcoma, diagnosed between 1988 and 2005, were identified in the Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) database.
  • Clinical characteristics and outcomes of primary cardiac sarcoma were defined and compared with the characteristics of noncardiac sarcomas.
  • Univariate and multivariate methods were used to identify factors associated with primary cardiac sarcoma survival.
  • RESULTS: Compared with noncardiac sarcomas, primary cardiac sarcomas were found to occur in a younger age group and were more likely to present with advanced disease.
  • Primary cardiac sarcomas were ten times more likely to be vessel-derived (eg, angiosarcoma), comprising almost half of all cases.
  • Median overall survival for cardiac sarcoma patients was 6 months whereas that for noncardiac sarcoma patients was significantly longer at 93 months (p < 0.001).
  • Furthermore, cardiac sarcoma patients who underwent surgery had a median survival of 12 months whereas those who did not undergo surgery had a median survival of 1 month (p < 0.001).
  • CONCLUSIONS: Cardiac sarcomas are a distinct, rare subset of soft tissue sarcomas with a poor prognosis.

  • Taken together, these results suggested that HADSC-6 cells were spontaneously transformed from the endothelium; therefore, they were further compared to previously published data of four naturally occurring human angiosarcoma cell lines.
  • The results showed that the established angiosarcoma cell lines exhibit considerable variations among themselves and HADSC-6 displayed most of these variable characteristics.
