  • [Title] [Video-assisted cardiac valve surgery].
  • BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Advances in the development of video-assisted systems for minimally invasive surgery now allow to perform cardiac surgery via a smaller anterolateral thoracotomy in order to reduce trauma, pain and improve cosmetics.
  • PATIENTS AND METHODS: At the West German Heart Center Essen, 47 patients were operated using minimally invasive endoscopic techniques between January 2004 and April 2006 on the mitral valve (n = 31), mitral and tricuspid valve (n = 9), including mini-Maze procedure in two cases, as well as atrial septal defects (n = 5) and myxomas (n = 2).
  • After a mean follow-up period of 18 months all reconstructions and valves were competent, freedom from cardiac reoperation was 100%.
  • CONCLUSION: Videoscopically assisted, endoscopic cardiac surgery can be performed safely, but requires a learning curve and intense training.

  • [Title] [Ischemic stroke secondary to left atrial myxoma].
  • [Transliterated title] Ictus isquémico secundario a mixoma auricular izquierdo.
  • After initial evaluation, an echocardiography identified a left atrial myxoma as aetiology of the stroke.
  • In view of the surgical need, we asked for a cardiac magnetic resonance in order to obtain further anatomical information about the atrial mass.
  • In the present article we review the neurological manifestations of the cardiac myxoma, considering the ischemic cerebrovascular disease as the most frequent presentation, just as this case illustrates.

  • [Title] A novel approach for a novel combination: a trans-septal biopsy of left atrial mass in recurrent phyllodes tumour.
  • Transthoracic echocardiography revealed a large left atrial mass.
  • Although a diagnosis of myxoma was likely, there was concern that this was a cardiac metastasis.
  • A tissue diagnosis was mandatory before further thoracic surgery could be considered.
  • Histology confirmed a diagnosis of myxoma, and our patient underwent successful surgery.
  • This case highlights the importance of obtaining accurate tissue diagnosis and of excluding metastatic disease in patients with a cardiac mass and a history of tumour, prior to deciding whether surgical excision is warranted.

  • We report a case of primary large cell carcinoma of the lung invading the heart and mimicking a left atrial myxoma.
  • This case highlights the problems we face in diagnosis and management of a very unusual presentation of poorly differentiated primary large ('non-small') cell lung cancer with extension into the left atrium.
  • It is important to have a high index of suspicion for a primary lung malignancy in chronic heavy smokers with none to minimal respiratory symptoms for early diagnosis and full staging procedures, as some of these tumours may be suitable for lung resection.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Bilobulated atrial myxoma originating from low interatrial septum.
  • Myxomas are the most common type of primary cardiac tumors.
  • Around 70% of patients who have them are females, 86% occur in the left atrium and more than 90% are solitary.
  • In the left atrium the usual site of attachment is in the fossa ovalis.
  • Less common sites within the left atrium are the mitral valve or in areas near it.
  • This patient, with a left atrial myxoma originating low in the interatrial septum near the mitral valve, is one of the first cases reported in Puerto Rico.
  • A 2D echo, done by a local physician, revealed a mobile left atrial mass causing diastolic obstruction of the valve.
  • A transesophageal echo was done showing a large bilobulated mass connected to the lowermost portion of the atrial septum, close to the mitral annulus, specially to the anterior leaflet.
  • Pathological examination confirmed it to be a myxoma.

  • [Title] A case of left atrial myxoma: anaesthetic management.
  • Left Atrial Myxomas are notorious for their varied presentations.
  • The main cause was a left atrial myxoma, which was diagnosed only in follow up.
  • The myxoma has embolised to give rise to cerebral infarction.
  • The LA myxoma was then successfully operated under general anaesthesia and Cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB).

  • [Title] Expression of tenascin-c and CD44 receptors in cardiac myxomas.
  • BACKGROUND: Myxomas are the most frequent primary cardiac neoplasms.
  • Interactions between cells and matrix are very important in the development of tumors, but data about myxomas in this setting are scarce because of the rarity of such neoplasms.
  • The expression of tenascin-c and hyaluran receptors in cardiac myxoma has never been investigated.
  • Moreover, it is now well recognized that cells of cardiac myxoma differentiate along endothelial lines.
  • METHODS: We have analyzed left atrial myxomas from 13 consecutive patients (six male and seven female, surgically treated), via immunohistochemical methods for the expression of molecules also implicated in angiogenesis in normal and pathological conditions, like tenascin-c and hyaluran receptors CD44s, CD44v5 and CD44v6.
  • RESULTS: Our data suggest that tenascin-c and CD44s play a synergic and perhaps complementary role in development of cardiac myxomas.
  • CONCLUSIONS: This study shows that cardiac myxomas express in the extracellular matrix tenascin-c and on the cellular membranes of neoplastic cells the hyaluran receptor CD44s.
  • Such molecules take part in the mechanism of development of the myxomas and might be in the future the target of nonsurgical treatments.

  • [Title] Intracoronary catheter aspiration can be an adequate option in patients with acute myocardial infarction caused by left atrial myxoma.
  • Cardiac myxomas are the most common benign cardiac tumors and can be associated with systemic embolization including acute myocardial infarction (AMI).
  • In cases of AMI caused by cardiac myxoma, open heart surgery including excision of the coronary artery has been the one of the treatment options for removing the myxoma and embolus from the coronary artery to maintain distal coronary flow.
  • In this report we present a case with acute anterior ST elevation myocardial infarction caused by a left atrial myxoma.

  • [Title] Endoscopic cardiac tumor resection.
  • BACKGROUND: The purpose of this study is to report our 9 years' experience with endoscopic cardiac tumor resection using the port access approach.
  • METHODS: From March 1997 to December 2005, 27 patients (mean age, 56.2 +/- 16.9 years; 70% female) underwent endoscopic cardiac tumor resection using endocardiopulmonary bypass and endoaortic-balloon clamp technique.
  • Nineteen (70%) patients presented in New York Heart Association class I, 4 patients presented with embolic stroke, and 4 patients presented with atrial arrhythmias.
  • Tumors resected were classified as left atrial myxoma (n = 20), right atrial myxoma (n = 3), lipoma (n = 1), intravenous leiomyoma involving the inferior vena cava and the tricuspid valve (n = 1), plexiform tumor of the sinoatrial node (n = 1), and papillary fibroelastoma of aortic valve noncoronary cusp (n = 1).
  • One patient had a small residual atrial septal defect.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Endoscopic cardiac tumor resection is feasible and a valid oncologic approach with an attractive cosmetic advantage over median sternotomy.

  • Among the primitive cardiac tumours, myxoma is the most common.
  • This benign tumour is sometimes described in the context of Carney's syndrome, in which cardiac myxoma, cutaneous myxoma, lentigo and pigmentary nevus cutaneous lesions, endocrine disorders, and testicular, thyroid and hypophyseal tumours are associated.
  • The cardiac myxomata observed are multiple, recurrent, and involve the four cardiac chambers, with a peak incidence at 25 years of age.
  • As in the case of sporadic myxoma, rapid surgical treatment with cardio-pulmonary bypass is indicated, bearing in mind the increased risk of thromboembolic phenomena and sudden death from valvular encroachment.
  • We report a case of bi-atrial myxoma observed in the context of Carney's syndrome.

  • [Title] Right atrial myxoma associated with acute cor pulmonale. Case report.
  • BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Atrial myxomas are the most common type of primary intracardiac tumors.
  • Although they are benign, it is recommended its immediate removal as soon as the diagnosis is confirmed, since they are associated with tumor embolization and their harmful consequences.
  • The objective of this report was to present the case of an intracardiac tumor of rare location (right atrium) that developed intraoperative embolization and to alert anesthesiologists for the possibility of this complication, besides discussing the anesthetic conduct.
  • CASE REPORT: A male patient, 42 years old, presented with a large mass in the right atrium, being scheduled for removal of the tumor.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Although intracardiac myxoma is a benign tumor, it can be associated with severe and even fatal complications.

  • [Title] Left atriotomy versus right atriotomy trans-septal approach for left atrial myxoma.
  • The biatrial approach has been the classic means of access for left atrial myxoma resection.
  • Increased surgical experience led cardiac surgeons to favour the uniatrial approach to reduce incisions and achieve adequate exposure.
  • In this study, two unilateral surgical approaches were compared in 18 consecutive left atrial myxoma cases.
  • Comparison criteria included pre- and post-operative functional capacity, cardiac rhythm, left ventricular ejection fraction, pulmonary artery pressure, left atrial dimensions, cardiopulmonary bypass time, aortic cross-clamp time, drainage over 48 h post-operatively, units of blood transfused, extubation time and length of stay in the intensive care unit and hospital.
  • No recurrence of myxoma occurred in either group for the 15 patients followed up.
  • Right atrial trans-septal incision appears to be as safe and effective as the left atriotomy approach for left atrial myxoma resection.

  • [Title] Autologous right atrial wall patch for closure of atrial septal defects.
  • BACKGROUND: We used the right atrial free wall as a patch to close atrial septal defects (ASD) and report its results.
  • METHODS: Between July 1998 and April 2006, 87 patients (mean age, 21.9 +/- 13.9 years; range, 7 months to 54 years), underwent closure of ASD with an autologous right atrial free wall patch.
  • The underlying diagnosis were very large secundum ASD in 51 patients, sinus venosus defect in 15, primum ASD in 5, large defect resulting from excision of a left atrial myxoma in 12, complete atrioventricular canal defect in 1, total anomalous pulmonary venous return with ASD in 2, and Ebstein anomaly with a large ASD in 1.
  • Electrophysiologic studies in 2 patients recorded normal atrial potentials from the site of the patch.
  • CONCLUSIONS: The autologous, free, right atrial wall can be safely used as a patch for ASD closure and offers several advantages.

  • [Title] Live three-dimensional transthoracic echocardiographic assessment of left atrial tumors.
  • This preliminary study demonstrates the superiority of live three-dimensional transthoracic echocardiography (3D TTE) over two-dimensional (2D) TTE in the assessment of left atrial (LA) tumors in four patients studied by us (three myxomas, one hemangioma, all subsequently pathologically proven).
  • Because of the unique ability of live 3D TTE to systematically section and view the contents of an intracardiac mass, LA myxomas in the three patients studied could be more confidently diagnosed by noting isolated echolucent areas consistent with hemorrhage/necrosis in the tumor mass.
  • On the other hand, a definite echolucent area was found by 2D TTE in only two of the three patients with myxoma.
  • In the fourth patient with a hemangioma, live 3D TTE showed much more extensive and closely packed echolucencies with little solid tissue as compared to a myxoma consistent with a highly vascularized tumor.
  • In contrast, 2D TTE demonstrated only two isolated echolucencies in the tumor suggesting an erroneous diagnosis of myxoma.

  • INTRODUCTION: Atrial myxomas are the most frequent benign tumors of the heart.
  • Left atrial myxomas are about 3-4 times more frequent then right.
  • AIM: Review of atrial myxomas diagnosed at the Clinic of Cardiology in 20 years period and analysis of clinical characteristics, transthoracic echocardiographic (TTE), transesophageal echocardiographic (TEE), and M-mod echophonographic findings.
  • RESULTS: We found 24 atrial myxomas: 19 (79.2%) in left and 5 (20.810%) in right atrium.
  • Echophonocardiographic recordings showed early diastolic tumor "plop" in 10 patients and unusual late diastolic tumor "plop" in one right atrial myxoma, which has not yet been described.
  • CONCLUSIONS: TTE is a reliable method in diagnosis of atrial myxomas, but not in all cases, while TEE has been found as always reliable.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Central nervous system manifestations of cardiac myxoma.
  • BACKGROUND: Neurologic complications can be the initial manifestation of atrial myxoma.
  • Prompt diagnosis is of paramount significance to prevent recurrent complications.
  • OBJECTIVE: To identify patients with neurologic complications attributed to atrial myxoma.
  • DESIGN, SETTING, AND PATIENTS: With institutional review board approval, we retrospectively reviewed the medical records of 74 consecutive patients with pathologically confirmed cardiac myxoma at the Mayo Clinic from January 1, 1993, through December 31, 2004.
  • RESULTS: Nine of the 74 patients with cardiac myxoma (12%) presented with neurologic manifestations in the setting of atrial myxoma.
  • Among patients with myxoma and neurologic symptoms, ischemic cerebral infarct was the most common neurologic manifestation (8 patients [89%]).
  • No patients had concomitant cardiac symptoms.
  • The size of the atrial myxoma was variable, with a mean diameter of 2.7 (range, 0.4-6.5) cm.
  • Most of the atrial myxomas causing neurologic symptoms demonstrated a mobile component on transesophageal echocardiography (8 patients [89%]).
  • One patient with intracerebral hemorrhage had pathologically confirmed intracranial metastatic myxoma and myxoma-induced aneurysmal dilatation.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Neurologic complications are associated with cardiac myxoma in some patients with myxoma and, when they occur, frequently present with cerebral infarction.
  • The mobility, not the size, of the myxoma appears to be related to embolic potential.
  • Potential delayed neurologic complications relevant to patients with tumor embolization include myxoma-induced cerebral aneurysm and myxomatous metastasis, which can mimic the clinical picture of central nervous system vasculitis or infective endocarditis.

  • We present asymptomatic right atrial myxoma in a patient with breast ductal adenocarcinoma.
  • To evaluate potential side effects of anthracycline-based regimen, transthoracic echocardiography was performed, which showed a highly mobile, cystic, and heterogeneous mass, 20 x 25 mm in size, located in the right atrium.
  • Transesophageal echocardiography confirmed the highly mobile mass originating from the inferior vena cava and extending to the right atrium.
  • Upon exposure, the tumor had a broad base, with attachment to the lower dorsal free wall, interatrial septum of the right atrial cavity, and upper border of the inferior vena cava.
  • The tumor was completely excised and histopathologic diagnosis was myxoma.
  • Localization of right atrial myxoma at the junction of the inferior vena cava and right atrium is a rare condition, and its coexistence with breast carcinoma has only been reported once.

  • RESULTS: An 18-year-old man presented with an intraparenchymal hemorrhage several months after resection of an atrial myxoma.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Myxomatous aneurysms are important entities for neurointensivists to recognize and can present years after diagnosis.
  • Patients presenting with cerebral infarction or hemorrhage of unknown etiology should undergo cardiac imaging to rule out atrial myxoma, as up to 50% of patients with myxomas present initially with stroke.

  • In the last 12 years, there have been 25 myxomas diagnosed at our institution, with only two of them originating from the mitral valve.
  • The second one had a smaller mass located at the atrial side of the posterior leaflet that only produced some flow divergence.
  • The macroscopic appearance of these tumours suggested a malignant aetiology which may represent somewhat different features of the myxomas when originating from the cardiac valves.

  • A 77-year-old man with atrial tumors was admitted to our hospital.
  • He had a history of hypertension and atrial fibrillation without valve disease.
  • Transthoracic and transesophageal echocardiography showed floating ball tumors with stalks from the right atrium (28 X 31 mm), the interatrial septum (16 X 11 mm), and the left atrial appendage (14 X 8 mm).
  • This case of multiple atrial ball thrombi illustrates the problems with differentiation of myxoma and thrombus.

  • [Title] Obstruction of the tricuspid valve orifice by a huge right atrial myxoma associated with the Carney complex: a case report.
  • Carney complex (CNC) is an inherited autosomal dominant disorder associated with multiple neoplasms.
  • Myxomas associated with CNC differ from their sporadic forms because the former usually develop at a younger age and they may be multicentric and have a tendency to recur.
  • We report the case of a 57-year-old man, with a huge right atrial myxoma obstructing the tricuspid valve orifice.
  • A diagnosis of CNC was established by genetic analysis.
  • The importance of early diagnosis and an adequate follow-up is emphasized.
