  • [Title] Mitral valve annular bacterial vegetative mass masquerading as a left atrial myxoma.
  • The surgical diagnosis was a left atrial myxoma.
  • The echocardiographic as well as the surgical findings were consistent with an atrial myxoma.
  • However, the histopathology of the specimen showed no evidence of myxoma as the characteristic stellate mesenchymal cells were absent.
  • It is interesting that the mitral valve was intact as de novo vegetation being formed on a structurally normal native valve is rare.
  • In some instances, the echocardiographic distinction between atrial masses such as vegetation, thrombus or an atrial myxoma may be ambiguous.
  • Not only does surgical removal allow histological determination of the diagnosis that is critical for treatment, but in cases where an infected mass is mobile and greater than 15 mm, as in this case, there is high potential for embolization.

  • [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.
  • 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.

  • A diagnosis of Carney complex (CNC) was made because the diagnostic criteria of this neoplastic syndrome were satisfied by the presence of recurrent cardiac myxoma, endocrine tumor and spotty skin pigmentation.
  • Although it is the most common, usually benign, cardiac tumor, myxoma can cause a critical clinical situation and thus detecting the PRKAR1A mutation can assist with prognosis.

  • [Title] Cardiac autotransplantation for malignant or complex primary left-heart tumors.
  • Malignant or complex benign tumors of the left heart can present a formidable challenge for complete resection, due to anatomic inaccessibility.
  • Cardiac autotransplantation (cardiac explantation, ex-vivo tumor resection, reconstruction, and reimplantation) was introduced for complex benign primary left-heart cardiac tumors by Cooley and for malignant left-heart tumors by Reardon.
  • Herein, we update our previously reported experience.From April 1998 through July 2008, 20 patients underwent 21 cardiac autotransplantations for complex left-sided cardiac tumors that were nonresectable by traditional means.
  • Two patients had left ventricular lesions and the rest had left atrial lesions.
  • Histology showed 7 malignant fibrous histiocytomas, 5 undifferentiated sarcomas, 3 leiomyosarcomas, 1 malignant osteosarcoma, 1 myxoid sarcoma, 2 paragangliomas, and 1 myxoma.
  • The mean survival for all patients with sarcoma is 22 months.Cardiac autotransplantation enables complete resection and accurate reconstruction in many primary malignant and complex benign left-heart tumors.

  • PURPOSE: Myxomas of the left atrial cavity of the heart are a rare occurrence.
  • Incidental diagnosis is mostly based on transthoracic echocardiography.
  • Contrast enhanced ultrasound (CEUS) seems to be a promising new diagnostic option for diagnosis and preoperative planning of treatment for patients with myxoma.
  • MATERIALS AND METHODS: We report a case of a 63-year-old woman with myxoma of the left atrial cavity of the heart in which CEUS helped to define the location and its relation to the heart valve.
  • RESULTS: In contrast enhanced ultrasound (CEUS), the oval mass in the left atrium was scanned in the 4-chamber view.
  • No thrombotic material was found in the left atrium (LA) or ventricle (LV).

  • [Title] Intracranial metastasis from a glandular variant of atrial myxoma.
  • BACKGROUND: Intracranial metastases from atrial myxoma producing symptomatic mass lesions are very rare with only ten examples reported in the literature.
  • We report a patient with multiple metastases from a cardiac myxoma which had an unusual histopathology mimicking an adenocarcinoma.
  • CLINICAL PRESENTATION: A 35 year old man presented with left facio-brachial focal motor seizures unresponsive to antiepileptic drugs and these episodes preceded the symptoms of cardiac myxoma.
  • The seizures worsened a year following resection of the cardiac myxoma.
  • The MRI of the brain revealed multiple lesions of heterogeneous intensity, partly solid and cystic situated in the right fronto-parietal, left temporal and occipital lobes.
  • Histological examination of the lesions in the brain demonstrated prominent glandular differentiation, identical in morphology to the primary cardiac lesion of a glandular variant of atrial myxoma.
  • CONCLUSION: This report highlights the rare presentation of atrial myxoma with intracranial metastases and reviews previously reported examples.
  • This is only the second case report of a glandular variant of atrial myxoma with metastases to the brain.
  • A pathologist, unaware of this unusual variant of primary atrial myxoma, may mistake the intracranial lesion for a metastatic adenocarcinoma.

  • [Title] Recurrent multiple cardiac myxomas.
  • BACKGROUND: The recurrence of cardiac myxoma after a surgical excision is a rare condition.
  • Multifocal growth of a benign myxoma or malignant transformation, inadequate resection, intraoperative implantation or embolization, familial disposition, and the abnormal DNA ploidy pattern play an important role in development of recurrent myxoma.
  • CASE: We report the case of a 24-year-old female with recurrent multiple cardiac myxomas.
  • The patient had undergone a resection of left atrial and right ventricular myxoma with extension to the right pulmonary artery 8 years ago.
  • The preoperative echocardiographic examinations revealed recurrent left atrial and right and left ventricular myxomas.
  • The patient underwent a redo-surgery and, in addition to a large myxoma in the right ventricle with involvement of the tricuspid valve and anterior papillary muscle, three myxomas including both myxomas originating at the top and the base of the posterior papillary muscle, respectively, the other myxoma between both papillary muscles in the posterior wall of the left ventricle, and 2 more small myxomas including 1 in the interatrial septum and the other on atrial surface of anterior mitral annulus were found in the left ventricle and atrium.
  • The myxomas were successfully excised through a transmitral approach with a combined bi-atrial incision.
  • She had an uneventful postoperative course and no residual myxoma was found by echocardiography.
  • CONCLUSION: We think that a long-term follow-up by echocardiography in all patients after the resection of myxoma is advised for an early detection of any recurrence (Fig. 5, Ref. 9).

  • [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.
  • The da Vinci instrument arms were inserted through three 1-cm trocar incisions in the right side of the chest.
  • Via 4 port incisions and a 1.5-cm working port, all the procedures were completed with a 30 degrees angled endoscope facing upward with the da Vinci S robot.
  • CONCLUSIONS: The excision of atrial myxomas with the da Vinci S Surgical System is feasible, efficacious, and safe.

  • Anatomic accessibility and proximity to vital structures complicates resection of tumors involving the left heart.
  • We, therefore, reviewed our series of patients with complex left-sided primary cardiac tumors who underwent tumor resection with cardiac autotransplantation.
  • METHODS: Since April 1998, 11 consecutive patients with complex left atrial or left ventricular intracavitary cardiac tumors underwent 12 resections using cardiac autotransplantation-cardiac explantation, ex vivo tumor resection with cardiac reconstruction, and cardiac reimplantation.
  • RESULTS: Complete resection by cardiac autotransplantation was used in 7 patients with left atrial sarcoma, 1 patient with left ventricular sarcoma, 2 patients with left atrial paraganglioma, and 1 patient with a complex giant left atrial myxoma.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Cardiac autotransplantation is a feasible technique for resection of complex left-sided cardiac tumors.

  • [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.
  • Physical examination revealed evidence of orthostatic hypotension and a soft grade 1/6 systolic murmur at the left sternal border.
  • 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.

  • An echocardiogram was conducted to further assess right ventricular function, revealing marked right ventricular enlargement and a mobile mass in the left atrium (initially suspected to be an atrial myxoma).
  • After subsequent embolization to the left axillary artery, thrombolysis was administered, and embolectomy confirmed this to be thrombus.

  • 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.
  • The mass protruded through the mitral valve into the left ventricle.
  • 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 mass was resected and histologic diagnosis was atrial myxoma.

  • The preoperative differentiation of a thrombus from a myxoma is important but not always easy.
  • Clinical and echocardiographic characteristics of myxoma and thrombi are not diverse enough to always reliably distinguish the two.
  • We report the case of a patient who was found to have a left atrial appendage thrombus that was misdiagnosed as a myxoma on the basis of its imaging characteristics on cardiac magnetic resonance in addition to the detection of dense neovascularization on coronary angiography.
  • This case highlights the unusual features of an organized thrombus that can mimic many of the distinguishing characteristics of a myxoma.

  • [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.

  • A 72-year-old man who had been treated for 20 years with warfarin for auricular fibrillation was scheduled for resection of a sessile mass (3.5 x 4 cm) on the posterior wall of the left atrium and a smaller mass (1.5 x 2 cm) in the right atrium.
  • During surgery, the presence of a large mass was confirmed on the posterior wall of the left atrium, which was enlarged due to chronic fibrillation.
  • The smaller, mobile, pediculated mass attached to the right free wall of the atrium or to the tricuspid valve was also confirmed.
  • Given these findings and the patient's history, differential diagnosis with either biatrial myxoma or thrombus was considered.
  • After opening both atria, an organized thrombus in the left atrium and a large hypertrophic trabecula in the trabeculated portion of the right atrium was found to be responsible for the misleading ultrasonographic image suggesting masses.

  • [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.
  • 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] Cardiac myxoma: a 13-year experience in echocardiographic diagnosis.
  • INTRODUCTION: Transthoracic echocardiography is the method of choice for the diagnosis of cardiac myxomas, but the transesophageal approach provides a better definition of the location and characteristics of the tumor.
  • The authors review their thirteen years' experience on the echocardiographic diagnosis of this pathology.
  • METHODS: From 1994 to 2007, 41 cardiac tumors were diagnosed in our echocardiographic laboratory, of which 27 (65.85%) were cardiac myxomas.
  • In two patients the myxoma was found by chance.
  • The myxomas followed a typical distribution with 24 (88.8%) located in the left atrium, 18 of them attached to the atrial septum (AS) and two to the mitral valve.
  • The other two cases originated in the right atrium at the AS.
  • Obstructive manifestations were associated with larger tumors (p = 0.046) and larger left atria (p = 0.048).
  • CONCLUSION: Myxoma is the most common cardiac tumor.
  • Transesophageal echocardiography provides excellent morphologic definition, aiding in diagnosis and follow-up.

  • 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.
