  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [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.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Left atrial myxoma supplied by the circumflex coronary artery arising from the right sinus of Valsalva.
  • Myxoma is the most common primary tumor of the heart.
  • Although cardiac myxomas are histologically benign, they may be a source of emboli and cause intracardiac obstruction resulting in acute myocardial infarction.
  • Two-dimensional echocardiography showed a large immobile mass, 6.8x3.4 cm in size, in the left atrium, causing obstruction of the left ventricular inflow.
  • Selective coronary angiography showed normal coronary arteries, but demonstrated marked neovascularization of the left atrial mass which was supplied by the left circumflex artery originating from the right coronary cusp.
  • The patient was immediately submitted to cardiac surgery.
  • The mass was resected and histologic diagnosis was atrial myxoma.

  • We describe a 57-year-old woman with a diagnosis of primary cardiac angiosarcoma.
  • She underwent emergency surgery with a preoperative diagnosis of atrial myxoma, and pathological analysis confirmed the diagnosis of cardiac angiosarcoma.
  • Two years later she was readmitted to the hospital with recurrence of the tumor in the left atrium and involvement of the mitral valve.
  • Another operation was carried out for mitral valve and left atrial wall reconstruction with a bovine pericardial patch.
  • The mortality associated with primary cardiac neoplasm is very high, although aggressive treatment together with appropriate chemotherapy may significantly prolong patient's lifespan.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [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: histopathologic variants].
  • Atrial myxomas are rare, usually benign, intracardiac tumors composed of mucopolysaccharides.
  • Almost all myxomas are found attached to the endocardium in the atria with vast majority being on the left side and can be removed by surgical resection.
  • Two rare cases of myxomas ablated from the left atrial cavity are presented.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • 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.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [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.

  • 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.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Two interesting cases of left atrial myxoma.
  • Atrial myxoma is the most common type of benign primary heart tumours.
  • They are mostly found in the left atrium followed by right atrium and ventricles.
  • A left atrial myxoma may present with features of mitral valve obstruction, embolic phenomenon or systemic disease.
  • On diagnosis, prompt surgical removal is necessary which usually gives a complete cure, though recurrences have been reported.
  • We hereby present two cases of solitary left atrial myxoma.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Atrial myxoma: trends in management.
  • Myxomas are the most common type of cardiac tumours in all age groups accounting for one-third to one-half of cases at postmortum and for about three quarter of tumours treated surgically.
  • Most atrial myxomas, whether left or right, arise from the atrial septum.
  • Myxomas are frequently located in left atrium and produce symptoms when they fragment and cause systemic emboli or when they interfere with cardiac valvular function and cause pulmonary congestion.
  • Recurrence of atrial myxomas can occur most likely in about 3% of patients.
  • However, extensive resection of the myxoma attached to atrial septum or atrial wall can reduce the likelihood of recurrence to a greater extent.

  • [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.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [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] Surgical resection of left atrial myxoma presenting with acute multiple hemorrhagic cerebral infarctions: a case report.
  • Brain ischemia resulting from left atrial myxoma embolization has been well documented.
  • In contrast, the link between the development of intracerebral hemorrhage and myxoma in these patients has little coverage in the literature.
  • The main theory describing this relationship stems from the fact that cardiac myxoma cells metastasize to the brain's vessels, causing destruction of the arterial wall with subsequent formation of fusiform aneurysm and further intracranial bleeding.
  • It is assumed that when a diagnosis of left atrial myxoma with neurologic manifestations is made, surgical resection should be performed without delay to prevent repeated tumor embolization; however, systemic anticoagulation treatment during cardiac surgery with cardiopulmonary bypass is not recommended immediately after intracerebral hemorrhage occurs because of the possibility of extending the infarct's size.
  • We describe a patient with acute hemorrhagic brain infarction and an echocardiographically demonstrated left atrial myxoma that was surgically resected successfully in the acute phase after the onset of the neurologic symptoms.

  • [Title] Massive right atrial myxoma causing exertional dyspnoea.
  • Metastatic tumours are the commonest cardiac tumours being found in 1-3% of patients dying of cancer while primary tumours are unusual and have an incidence of 0.02-0.5%.
  • The majority (80%) of all primary cardiac tumours are benign with myxomas accounting for 50%.
  • Myxomas arising from the right atrium are uncommon.
  • Transthoracic echocardiography showed an extremely large right atrial myxoma prolapsing into the right ventricle and obstructing the tricuspid valve.
  • We demonstrate how intraoperative transoesophageal echocardiography, prior to sternotomy, was useful in providing information about the myxoma which clearly displayed its attachment and anatomical relationship in the planning of the 'safe' surgical excision.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [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] Atrial myxomas and thrombi: comparison of imaging features on CT.
  • OBJECTIVE: The purpose of our study was to compare the imaging features of atrial myxomas and thrombi using CT and to assess the accuracy of CT for determining the origin of myxomas in comparison with surgical findings.
  • MATERIALS AND METHODS: From July 2006 until June 2008, 23 patients (15 women, eight men; mean age, 63 +/- 14 years) with atrial myxomas (n = 13) and thrombi (n = 11) who underwent dual-source CT coronary angiography were included in this retrospective study.
  • The shape and origin of myxomas were compared with the findings at surgery.
  • RESULTS: No significant differences regarding the CT attenuation of myxomas in comparison with thrombi were found (43 +/- 14 HU vs 57 +/- 30 HU; p = 0.23).
  • Myxomas were significantly larger than thrombi (33 +/- 16 mm vs 21 +/- 7 mm; p < 0.05).
  • In comparison with surgery, the origin of myxomas was correctly evaluated by CT in 11 of 13 patients (fossa ovalis, n = 5; interatrial septum, n = 4; and lateral atrial wall, n = 2), whereas CT misclassified the origin of two myxomas (posterior and lateral wall left atria at CT vs fossa ovalis at surgery).
  • CONCLUSION: Atrial myxomas and thrombi can be differentiated by their distinguishing features of size, origin, shape, mobility, and prolapse.
  • CT is accurate in determining the origin of myxomas but may fail in some cases.

  • [Title] Clinical, echocardiographic and echophonocardiographic characteristics of the atrial myxomas in 22 years period.
  • 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.

  • [Title] Atrial myxomas: pathologic types, tumor location, and presenting symptoms.
  • BACKGROUND: Atrial myxoma is the most common cardiac neoplasm.
  • METHODS: We performed a retrospective review of atrial myxomas removed from 1972 to 2002, recording the clinical presentation, diagnostic modality, tumor location, gross, and microscopic features for each patient.
  • Twenty-six patients (16 females and 10 males) had atrial myxomas excised.
  • CHF was more prevalent in solid myxomas, while neurologic symptoms and embolic events were more common in papillary tumors.
  • Ninety-two percent of patients presenting with CHF had tumors attached to the atrial septum.
  • Extraseptal myxomas more frequently presented with neurologic (80% vs. 29%) and embolic features (50% vs. 25%).
  • A higher percentage of solid myxomas (93%) showed hemorrhage within the tumor than with papillary (56%).
  • CONCLUSIONS: CHF was more common with solid myxomas, and neurologic and embolization events were more common in the papillary type.

  • Two-dimensional echocardiography and real-time three-dimensional echocardiography (RT3DE) showed a large right atrial mass protruding into the right ventricle and an atrial septal defect (ASD).
  • Successful excision of the mass, which proved to be a myxoma, and closure of the ASD completely relieved her symptoms.
  • To our knowledge, this is the first report of RT3DE in a patient with right atrial myxoma associated with an ASD.

  • [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] Surgical resection of atrial myxomas.
  • 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] Large right atrial myxoma containing gastric heterotopia presenting with dyspnea and bilateral leg edema due to pulmonary emboli and cardiovascular obstruction: the first known report of gastric heterotopia in the cardiovascular system.
  • A 52-year-old male presented with progressive dyspnea, bilateral leg edema, and elevated central venous pressure due to a large right atrial myxoma that caused vascular obstruction and pulmonary emboli.
  • The myxoma contained gastric heterotopia.
  • Other unusual features of this atrial myxoma included its large size, right atrial location, and attachment to the right atrial wall.
  • This report confirms and extends previous reports of glandular elements or enteric glands within atrial, or cardiac, myxomas.
  • The clinical presentation of the currently reported patient is explained as follows: the elevated central venous pressure resulted from cardiovascular obstruction and the dyspnea from multiple pulmonary emboli due to the large atrial myxoma.
  • The association of gastric heterotopia with atrial myxoma may, however, be clinically important because of the propensity of gastric heterotopia in the gastrointestinal tract to produce complications.

  • 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.

  • [Title] Giant right atrial myxoma mimicking hepatic cirrhosis: a case report.
  • Cardiac myxomas are rare benign tumors of the heart.
  • Right atrial myxoma can simulate nonspecific constitutional symptoms, such as remittent or lasting fever, weight loss, and chronic anemia, and may escape timely diagnosis until the development of severe complications such as pulmonary hypertension due to embolism from fragments originating from the tumor mass or blockage of the right atrioventricular ostium or Budd-Chiari syndrome with acute abdominal pain.
  • We present a case of a giant right atrial myxoma mimicking hepatic cirrhosis in a 52-year-old man.

  • [Title] Right atrial mass in the context of recurrent non-Hodgkin's lymphoma: atrial myxoma presenting with atrial flutter.
  • Diagnostic work-up revealed paroxysmal atrial flutter and the presence of a mass in the right lower lobe at bronchoscopy, with histology confirming recurrent BALTOMA.
  • Transthoracic echocardiography (TTE) revealed a mass in the right atrium.
  • Transoesophageal echocardiography (TOE) confirmed the presence of a fleshy, mobile pedunculated right atrial mass adherent to the interatrial septum, with features more in keeping with an atrial myxoma rather than intracardiac lymphoma.
  • He proceeded to cardiotomy and excision of the mass with histology confirming an atrial myxoma.
  • The clinical and echocardiographic features of atrial myxomas and intracardiac lymphomas are briefly discussed.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [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.

  • Myxoma was resected at first, and then the right internal thoracic artery (RITA) was anastomosed to the LAD.
  • Left atrial myxoma was incidentally detected by echocardiography.
  • Myxoma was resected at first, and then CABG [LITA-HL, gastroepiploic artery (GEA)-RCA and RITA-LAD] was carried out.
  • The priority between CABG and the surgical treatment for cardiac myxoma remains controversial from the point of view of myocardial protection and prevention of systemic embolism of myxomal fragment.
