  • [Title] A heavy heart; A massive right atrial myxoma causing fatigue and shortness of breath.
  • Cardiac myxomas are rare.
  • The clinical diagnosis of an atrial myxoma may occur in an asymptomatic patient but may also present with cardiac failure, syncope, arrythmias, or with vascular evidence of tumour embolisation.
  • The delay in diagnosis from presentation is approximately ten months.
  • Investigations revealed a massive right atrial myxoma.
  • Emergency Physicians should be aware of the subtle ways in which an atrial myxoma can present because of the potential for fatal outcomes.

  • LV biopsies were procured from 24 cardiac surgical patients selected from 4 distinct clinical groups (n = 6) in the progression from preserved LV function to HF.
  • Group I consisted of control patients with normal LV function (e.g., with atrial myxoma), group II had aortic regurgitation with LV hypertrophy and preserved systolic function (ejection fraction >50%), group III had aortic regurgitation with LV dysfunction (ejection fraction 30% to 40%), and group IV had end-stage HF (ejection fraction <20%).

  • [Title] Systemic septic embolisation secondary to an atrial myxoma in a young woman.
  • We present a case of a left atrial myxoma infected with Staphylococcus aureus in a 35-year-old woman who was found to have a retained tampon.
  • She was successfully treated by surgical excision of the myxoma and 4 weeks of antibiotic therapy.
  • We postulate that the source of this patient's S. aureus infection was tampon use, leading to a toxic shock syndrome and causing infection of an undiagnosed left atrial myxoma, which led to the embolisation.
  • In those with an underlying cardiac predisposition, tampon use may represent a risk of infection with S. aureus, and we intend to heighten clinical awareness of this potentially life-threatening association.
  • We also discuss the diagnosis, complications and treatment of infected atrial myxoma and illustrate the imaging findings.

  • [Title] Biatrial myxoma and atrial septal defect.
  • Myxomas are rarely associated with congenital cardiac anomalies.
  • We report a case of a young female presenting with symptoms of atrial myxoma but having co-existing ASD visualized on 64 slice multidetector computed tomography (MDCT) prior to cardiac surgery.
  • Patient had a successful resection of biatrial myxoma and ASD repair.
  • This case is unique as the myxoma originated from the inferior margin of the ASD straddling the inferior limbus.
  • Over the years due to the left to right shunt at the ASD, the myxoma was initially prolapsing and oscillating between the two atria.
  • As it grew larger it obliterated the ASD and got stuck in the right atrium (RA) and continued to grow giving false impression of a right atrial mass.
  • Multi detector computed tomography is an alternative diagnostic modality to the gold standard transesophageal echocardiograph for detection of an ASD in the presence of atrial myxoma.
  • Biatrial myxoma with associated atrial septal defect has optimal postoperative results.

  • [Title] Intraoperative real time three-dimensional transesophageal echocardiographic evaluation of right atrial tumor.
  • Right atrial myxomas are uncommon heart tumors that can simulate nonspecific symptoms, such as fever, paroxysmal palpitations, chronic anemia, weight loss, and may escape timely diagnosis until the development of severe complications due to embolism.
  • In search for the source of palpitations, a 2D transthoracic echocardiography was performed, showing a right atrial mass.
  • This is the first case report of a right atrial myxoma visualized intraoperatively by RT3DTEE.

  • Carney complex is a rare autosomal-dominant familial tumor syndrome that involves the triad of myxoma, mucocutaneous pigmentation, and endocrine overactivity.
  • To the best of the authors' knowledge, there are no reports of multiple fusiform aneurysms coinciding with atrial myxoma.
  • The authors report the case of a 38-year-old woman with typical Carney complex who had multiple skin myxomas, endocrine abnormalities, and multiple brownish perioral lesions.
  • Multiple fusiform aneurysms were also discovered after the recurrence of atrial myxoma.

  • [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.

  • Atrial myxoma is the most common benign tumor of the heart.
  • Patients who have atrial myoxmas usually present with cardiac obstruction, arrhythmias, or peripheral embolization.
  • A tumor originating in the left atrium most often embolizes to the cerebrovascular system.
  • Complete myxoma embolization to the peripheral vessels is rare and usually occurs with tragic consequences.
  • We present an unusual case of acute lower extremity ischemia due to the complete embolization of a left atrial myxoma.

  • [Title] An atypically localized atrial myxoma: a case report.
  • Atypical cardiac myxomas are rare occurrences and may present with a variety of clinical manifestations depending on the location and morphology.
  • A 46-year-old woman had a 4 x 3 x 2-cm myxoma originating from the superior wall of the left atrium, found by echocardiography and multislice tomography.
  • The resected tumor was a well-defined encapsulated mass with a narrow-base stalk originating from the right wall of the left atrium in between the right upper and lower pulmonary vein.
  • At 1-year follow-up, echocardiography revealed normal cardiac function without reccurence in terms of mass.
  • Although up to 80% of myxomas are localized in the left atrium, of which 75% involve in the interatrial septum, it should not be forgotten that myxomas can appear in an atypical localization, as occurred in our case.

  • [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] Atrial myxoma presenting with orthostatic hypotension in an 84-year-old Hispanic man: a case report.
  • INTRODUCTION: Left atrial myxomas remain the most common benign primary cardiac tumors, and these cardiac growths can masquerade as mitral stenosis, infective endocarditis and collagen vascular disease.
  • Atrial myxomas are found in approximately 14-20% of the population and can lead to embolization, intercardiac obstructions, conduction disturbances and lethal valve obstructions.
  • A transthoracic echocardiogram revealed a large atrial myxoma occupying the majority of the left atrium, with the posterior border of the large atrial mass defined by eccentric mitral regurgitation identified during cardiac catheterization.
  • Left atrial myxoma excision was performed, revealing a 7 x 6.5 x 4.5 cm atrial tumor attached to a 4 x 3 x 2 cm stalk of atrial septal tissue.
  • CONCLUSION: This patient didn't present with the common symptoms associated with an atrial myxoma, which may include chest pain, dyspnea, orthopnea, peripheral embolism or syncope.
  • By illustrating this correlation between orthostasis and an atrial myxoma, we hope to facilitate earlier identification of these intracardiac growths.

  • [Title] Clinical presentation and investigation findings in cardiac myxomas: new insights from the developing world.
  • BACKGROUND: Cardiac myxomas are an uncommon condition and most of the available information on their clinical features comes from smaller series of patients from developed countries.
  • Our aim was to quantify and correlate the clinical and investigation findings in cardiac myxomas in a developing country and compare them with existing data.
  • METHODS: A retrospective study of case notes, electrocardiograms, and x-rays of 171 patients treated for cardiac myxoma from February 1992 to October 2006 at a large charitable institution in South India was conducted.
  • Left atrial enlargement was the most common electrocardiographic abnormality (35%), whereas cardiomegaly was the most common chest x-ray finding (55%).
  • Female patients and patients with right atrial myxomas more commonly had systemic symptoms.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Cardiac myxomas present at a younger age in developing countries.
  • A high index of suspicion is necessary for making an early diagnosis.

  • Myxomas are the most common form of benign cardiac tumors; these tumors occur primarily in the atria.
  • Most myxomas are idiopathic in origin, but in rare cases, patients have a family history of myxomas.
  • Although these tumors are benign, myxomas have the potential to cause serious complications, including embolic events and partial or complete obstruction of intracardiac blood flow.
  • Typically, surgical resection of an atrial myxoma is performed via a median sternotomy with the patient on cardiopulmonary bypass.
  • Recurrence of a myxoma after surgical excision is extremely rare, and most patients have an excellent prognosis after surgery.

  • [Title] Multiple cerebral aneurysms associated with atrial myxoma. A case report.
  • Cardiac myxoma is a tumor of mesenchymal origin accounting for half of all primary cardiac neoplasms.
  • Intracranial involvement by atrial myxoma is a rare cause of neurologic deficit.
  • When the myxoma arises in the left atrium, systemic emboli from a cardiac myxoma can lead to infarction, cerebral hemorrhage and aneurysm formation.
  • In the light of the potentially preventable nature of these lesions, the diagnosis of myxomatous aneurysms should be considered in any patient with neurologic symptoms and a history of cardiac myxoma.
  • We describe a case in which MR imaging and angiography were used to diagnose multiple cerebral aneurysms caused by left atrial myxoma.

  • [Title] Floating left atrial mass in a patient with mitral stenosis.
  • Mobile masses within the left atrial cavity are commonly caused by organized thrombi or left atrial myxoma.
  • We report a case of a left atrial mass in a female patient who presented with mitral stenosis and atrial fibrillation, and was diagnosed by transthoracic echocardiography (TTE).
  • In the presence of mitral stenosis, atrial fibrillation and dilated left atrium, the appearance of the mass was in keeping with mobile thrombus.
  • We conclude that TTE is still a reliable tool in the diagnosis of large mobile atrial thrombi; TEE is needed when differentiation from atrial myxoma is difficult.

  • [Title] Atrial myxoma: a 25-year single-institutional follow-up study.
  • OBJECTIVE: A single-institutional study on atrial myxoma.
  • METHODS: We studied 109 patients (61.5% female) who underwent surgical excision of atrial myxoma between January 1980 and December 2005.
  • Overall survival and atrial myxoma recurrence were determined by Kaplan-Meier analysis.
  • RESULTS: One hundred and two (93.6%) of the 109 tumours were found in the left atrium.
  • Survival of patients after myxoma removal did not significantly differ from the expected survival of the general population.
  • Recurrent myxomas developed in two patients (mean age 50 +/- 7 years) with a 25-year freedom from reoperation of 96 +/- 3% and a linearized rate of 0.17 +/- 0.12%/year.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Myxomas tend to be observed in a more elderly and higher-risk population, often at an early stage.
  • The extended follow-up of patients with intracardiac myxomas shows that surgical excision of such tumours is curative with low mortality and good long-term outcome.

  • [Title] Cardiac myxomas: short- and long-term follow-up.
  • BACKGROUND: Cardiac myxomas are the most frequently encountered benign intracardiac tumors, that, if left untreated, are inexorably progressive and potentially fatal.
  • Patients with cardiac myxoma can be treated only by surgical removal.
  • METHODS: Fifty seven patients (M/F: 14/43, age: 57.9 +/- 14.6 years) with cardiac myxomas underwent surgical resection at our institution.
  • There were 82.4% left atrial myxomas, 14.0% right atrial myxomas, 3.6% biatrial myxomas.
  • Cause of death was cardiac in 40% of the patients (n = 2) and non-cardiac in the other 60% (n = 3).
  • CONCLUSIONS: Surgical excision of cardiac myxoma carries a low operative risk and gives excellent short-term and long-term results.
  • After diagnosis, surgery should be performed urgently, in order to prevent complications such as embolic events or obstruction of the mitral orifice.

  • [Title] Cardiac myxoma cells exhibit embryonic endocardial stem cell features.
  • The origin of myxoma, the most frequent tumour of the heart, remains uncertain.
  • Previous phenotypic characterizations have shown heterogeneous results and the most recent hypothesis suggests that cardiac myxoma originates from a primitive pluripotential cardiogenic cell.
  • We investigated the expression of actin isoforms in 30 left atrial myxomas by immunohistochemistry and in eight consecutive tumours by RT-PCR. alpha-Smooth muscle actin (alpha-SMA) protein and/or transcripts were detected in all cases, whereas alpha-cardiac actin was observed in few cases and alpha-skeletal actin was always absent.
  • Confocal microscopy showed focal co-expression of CD34 and alpha-SMA in myxoma cells, suggesting a gradual loss of stem endothelial markers and the acquisition of myocytic antigens.
  • In order to confirm this hypothesis, early cardiac differentiation markers were also investigated.
  • Myxoma cells maintained phenotypic heterogeneity in vitro, including the expression of alpha-SMA and the presence of stress fibres.
  • These findings document in cardiac myxoma cells phenotypic markers of the embryonic endothelial-to-mesenchymal transformation that precedes terminal differentiation of endocardial cushions, supporting the hypothesis that cardiac myxoma cells may derive from adult developmental remnants.

  • [Title] Excision of atrial myxoma using robotic technology.
  • OBJECTIVE: This study is to discuss a surgical approach for ideal and safe resection of atrial myxoma using the da Vinci S Surgical System (Intuitive Surgical, Inc, Sunnyvale, Calif).
  • METHODS: Nineteen consecutive patients underwent resection of atrial myxomas with the da Vinci S Surgical System.
  • Fifteen tumors were in the left atrium, of which 11 tumors arose from the interatrial septum, 2 from the posterocaudal wall, 1 from the root of the anterior leaflet of the mitral valve, and 1 from the left atrial roof.
  • In 13 patients, exploration was conducted through a left atriotomy anterior to the pulmonary veins and excision was achieved by dissecting a plane through the atrial muscle at the point of attachment.
  • Four tumors were in right atrium, all of which were resected from the beating heart.
  • CONCLUSIONS: The excision of atrial myxomas with the da Vinci S Surgical System is feasible, efficacious, and safe.

  • [Title] Myocardial infarction as complication of left atrial myxoma.
  • Although cardiac myxomas are histologically benign, they tend to form emboli and cause intracardiac obstruction, so that they must be classified as potentially fatal tumors of the heart.
  • Thus, villous myxomas are more fragile and form emboli more often.
  • It appears that coronary embolism may be more frequent in the group of myxoma patients than generally is assumed.
  • These may present as acute myocardial ischemia with the typical clinical symptoms of acute myocardial infarction, as a silent infarct, shock, syncope or as sudden cardiac death.
  • Besides our case report this paper will give an overview on published data on coronary embolism in patients with atrial myxoma.
  • Therefore it is reasonable to perform transoesophageal echocardiography to check out embolic sources like myxoma, when pathogenesis of myocardial infarction remains unclear after coronary angiography.

  • [Title] Cavitating atrial myxoma mimicking hydatid cyst on echocardiography: utility of cardiac magnetic resonance imaging and computed tomography for diagnosis and preoperative evaluation.
  • A cavitating cardiac mass may represent various etiologies, the most common being hydatid cyst, myxoma, and thrombus.
  • Diagnosis is crucial as treatment strategies are very different.
  • Although echocardiography is the initial imaging modality for a suspected cardiac mass, it does not allow for accurate tissue characterization.
  • Cardiac magnetic resonance imaging helps to confirm the diagnosis as it incorporates a variety of pulse sequences and assesses the perfusion and delayed enhanced characteristics of the mass and myocardium.
  • This report describes a case of cavitating atrial myxoma suspected to be a hydatid cyst on echocardiography.

  • The objective of the study is to report a case of atrial myxoma with bloodstream metastasis misdiagnosed to be Takayasu arteritis.
  • Echocardiography suggested a mass in left atrium, which was surgically removed and pathologically confirmed to be atrial myxoma.
  • In conclusion, atrial myxoma with bloodstream metastasis sometimes presented with similar clinical symptoms of Takayasu arteritis and may lead to misdiagnosis of these two diseases.
  • Usually, accepted diagnosis criteria are not enough in distinguishing these diseases.

  • CCM mostly occur sporadically, and multiple occurrence of CCM is highly suggestive of a genetic origin of the disorder.
  • The present review discusses the association of CCM with mesenchymal anomalies, with special emphasis on the possible common pathogenetic pathway for CCM and atrial myxomas.
  • An illustrative case is presented in which CCM occurred together with different dysplasias (multiple CCM, liver cavernoma, and cardiac atrial myxoma), which are all thought to arise from abnormal mesenchymal cell differentiation processes.

  • [Title] Cardiac myxoma: clinical presentation, surgical treatment and outcome.
  • PURPOSE: To analyse the clinical characteristics and patterns of cardiac myxomas and to evaluate the clinical course and surgical treatment results.
  • METHODS: In this retrospective study we evaluated the clinical presentation, diagnostic methods and surgical treatment outcome in all patients (n=17) with cardiac myxoma treated at the Institute of Cardiovascular Diseases of Vojvodina between the 1.1.2006-31.1.2009.
  • RESULTS: Patients with cardiac myxoma constituted 0.52% of all patients having had heart operations for different reasons.
  • Left atrial myxomas were by far more frequent (16 patients, 94.11%) than right atrial myxomas (1 patient, 5.88%).
  • The tumor size ranged from 1.7x1 cm to 9.5x3.3 cm (average of 2x2.86) and histological examination confirmed the diagnosis of cardiac myxoma in every instance.
  • The 30-day mortality after surgical extirpation of atrial myxomas was 0%.
  • CONCLUSION: Cardiac myxoma may mimic a huge variety of other cardiac diseases.

  • [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.

  • Although atrial myxomas are benign cardiac tumors of stromal origin, they can lead to systemic embolization with ectopic myxoma formation.
  • We report successful liver, kidney, and pancreas transplantation into 3 recipients from a donor with cerebral emboli from a left atrial myxoma.
  • Eighteen months after transplantation, all 3 patients enjoy good allograft function and are free of donor-derived atrial myxoma.
  • Although the duration of follow-up in this report is limited, we suggest that the presence of atrial myxoma should not be viewed as an absolute contraindication to organ recovery, particularly in view of the shortage of organ donors and the attendant morbidity and mortality for patients on waiting lists.

  • OBJECTIVE: In this single-center study we reviewed our experience with left atrial myxomas occurring over the past 9 years.
  • METHODS: Sixty-three patients underwent excision of cardiac myxomas between 1995 and 2004.
  • Of these, 56 patients (32 females and 24 males) had left atrial (LA) myxoma.
  • The preferred approach for resection was right atrial trans-septal.
  • RESULTS: Clinically 75% of the LA myxomas simulated mitral stenosis.
  • Most (86%) LA myxomas were attached to the fossa ovalis.
  • One patient succumbed to low cardiac output and another died of massive embolic stroke following surgery.
  • Atrial fibrillation occurred in one patient.
  • Right atrial trans-septal approach is safe and easy.

  • [Title] [Heparin-induced thrombocytopenia occurring after surgical treatment of atrial myxoma--a case report].
  • INTRODUCTION: Heparin-induced thrombocytopenia (HIT) is an acquired, prothrombotic disorder, caused by antibodies to a complex of heparin and platelet factor 4 (PF4) that activates platelets, resulting in the release of procoagulant microparticles, thrombocytopenia occurrence, generation of thrombin, and frequent thromboses.
  • CASE OUTLINE: We present a case of severe HIT in a 68-year-old female, which occurred after cardiosurgery of the left atrial myxoma with the aim to point out the importance of differential diagnosis of thrombocytopenia in patients recently exposed to heparin.
  • Platelet count dropped on the eleventh postoperative day, six days after unfractioned heparin and enoxaparine threatment, to 4x10(9)/I.The correct diagnosis failed to be made at first.
  • The diagnosis of HIT was confirmed with the high-probability clinical score (4T's) and strongly positive anti-heparin-PF4 (PaGIA) test as well as positive platelet aggregation test.
  • Additional awareness of heparin-induced thrombocytopenia is needed, especially of HIT in differential diagnosis of thrombocytopenia in patients recently exposed to heparin.

  • [Title] Thymoma arising within cardiac myxoma.
  • Hematopoietic, glandular, and mesenchymal elements can be found within cardiac myxomas; ectopic endocrine tissues and "thymic rests" have also rarely been described.
  • Atrial tumors (one right and one left) from 2 patients (a 69-year-old man and a 77-year-old woman) were encountered among the atrial myxoma cases in one of the author's consultation files.
  • Both tumors were comprised of classic cardiac myxoma (with characteristic rings and syncytial chains of myxoma cells in a loose myxoid matrix) and cellular thymoma-like elements (characterized by a lobulated sheet-like growth of epithelioid spindle cells admixed with small lymphocytes punctuated by vessels with prominent perivascular spaces).
  • The most likely explanation for this extremely unusual finding is neoplastic transformation of thymic rests within a myxoma.

  • [Title] Incremental value of contrast echocardiography in the diagnosis of atrial myxoma.
  • Intracardiac myxomas have traditionally been divided into solid ovoid and soft papillary types based on a morphological appearance.
  • Papillary myxomas given their friable nature are far more likely to cause embolic phenomenon and present with neurological symptoms, making it necessary to discriminate between these tumor subtypes.
  • Papillary myxomas have also been demonstrated to be significantly less vascular than their ovoid counterparts in previous angiographic studies.
  • We describe here for the first time, the application of transesophageal real time myocardial contrast echocardiography in a case of atrial papillary myxoma to assess tumor vascularity. (Echocardiography 2010;27:E46-E49).

  • [Title] Atrial myxomas grow faster than we think.
  • The finding of a cardiac myxoma usually implies immediate consequent surgical excision to prevent embolic events.
  • We report the growth of a left atrial myxoma in an asymptomatic 65-year-old patient with several years of follow up for aortic valve disease.
  • A MEDLINE search with the terms "cardiac myxoma and tumor growth" was performed.
  • These reports suggest that the growth rate of myxomas may be faster than is usually thought.

  • Echocardiography showed a left atrial mass compatible with an atrial myxoma.
  • The myxoma was surgically removed without complications.
  • This case highlights the need for cardiac evaluation to rule out a cardiac tumor with embolic potential in the presence of any child with neurological manifestations of cerebrovascular disease with inconclusive brain imaging, even with no previous evidence of cardiac disease.

  • [Title] Hyperthyroidism and atrial myxoma--an intriguing cardio-endocrine association.
  • Echocardiography revealed a left atrial myxoma measuring 6.2 x 3.3 cm protruding into the mitral orifice and left ventricle during diastole.
  • Six weeks later, her left atrial myxoma measuring 10.1 x 6.2 x 2.4 cm was resected.
  • Atrial myxomas are the most common primary cardiac neoplasms.
  • More than two-thirds of patients with Carney's complex develop one or more cardiac myxomas.
  • Although atrial myxomas in Carney's complex are histologically indistinguishable from the sporadic form, their clinical presentation and course is distinct.
  • This is the first case of newly diagnosed Graves' disease that has been reported in association with an atrial myxoma.
  • The features discussed in this article help differentiate between syndromic and sporadic atrial myxomas.
