  • The biatrial approach has been the classic means of access for left atrial myxoma resection.
  • In this study, two unilateral surgical approaches were compared in 18 consecutive left atrial myxoma cases.
  • Patients were divided into two groups according to the surgical approach: left atriotomy (group 1, n = 9) and right atriotomy trans-septal approach (group 2, n = 9).
  • 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] Revelation of left atrial myxoma during acute myocardial infarction.
  • The majority of these tumors are benign, with myxomas located in the left atrium being the most common form.
  • Malignant tumors are also described in the left atrium.
  • Large left atrial myxoma size was closely related with constitutional symptoms, congestive heart failure, with syncope and auscultatory findings suggestive of mitral valve disease, whereas smaller myxoma size and irregular surface were associated with embolization.
  • We present the revelation of an asymptomatic left atrial myxoma in a 64-year-old Italian woman during an acute myocardial infarction.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] [Left atrial myxoma combined with coronary artery bypass grafting].
  • We experienced 2 cases of surgical treatment for left atrial myxoma combined with coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) using only in situ arterial grafts.
  • A 58-year-old man who had undergone CABG [left internal thoracic artery (LITA)-right coronary artery (RCA) and saphenous vein graft (SVG)-left anterior descending artery (LAD)] 14 years before was admitted to our hospital, complaining of anterior chest pain.
  • Left atrial myxoma was incidentally detected by echocardiography.
  • Myxoma was resected at first, and then the right internal thoracic artery (RITA) was anastomosed to the LAD.
  • Coronary arteriography revealed stenosis of LAD, left circumflex artery (LCx) and HL, as well as left main trunk (LMT).
  • 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.

  • Mitral stenosis associated with free left atrial myxoma is very rare.
  • A free myxoma is life-threatening when incarcerated in the mitral orifice or if embolization of the whole tumor occurs.
  • We report a case of a female patient with moderate mitral stenosis and a detached left atrial myxoma.
  • The myxoma was spherical, solid and smooth-surfaced.
  • Mitral stenosis prevented the exit of the tumor from the left atrium and a possible fatal outcome.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Large asymptomatic left atrial myxoma with ossification: case report.
  • BACKGROUND: Atrial myxomas are the most common primary cardiac tumors.
  • They are usually small or moderate in size by the time of the diagnosis, exhibiting non specific cardiac or systemic symptoms, and are most frequently soft and friable without microscopic signs of ossification.
  • We describe herein an extremely rare case of an asymptomatic giant left atrial myxoma with angiographic neovascularization and ossification.
  • CASE PRESENTATION: An asymptomatic 58-year-old male with a giant left atrial tumor, was transferred to our Unit for surgical treatment.
  • The tumor macroscopically did not resemble a myxoma, considering its dimensions (12 x 10 cm) and its solid substance.
  • The mass was excised together with the interatrial septum and the right lateral LA wall close to the right pulmonary veins orifices.
  • The pathology study revealed a benign myxoma with excessive osteoid (mature bone) content.

  • [Title] Left atrial myxoma associated with obstructive coronary artery disease.
  • We describe a case of a 67 year-old patient with obstructive coronary artery disease that, in the preoperative survey for inguinal herniorraphy surgery, discovered, by a two-dimensional echocardiogram, a tumor in left atrium, mobile, non-obstructive.
  • The patient underwent a cineangiocoronariography showing severe stenosis in the left anterior descending artery, moderate stenosis in the left circumflex artery, near the origin of the first marginal branch, and a non-obstructive plaque in the right coronary artery.
  • There was also moderate left ventricular dysfunction.
  • After that, the patient has gone coronary artery bypass surgery and resection of the left atrial tumor.
  • The histological exam revealed that the tumor was, in fact, a myxoma.

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

  • [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.
  • 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.

  • 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] 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.
  • 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.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [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] Complete embolization of a left atrial myxoma resulting in acute lower extremity ischemia.
  • 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.

  • We describe a giant left atrial myxoma.
  • We were not able to find another myxoma as big as this one in the literature, so we are reporting it.

  • [Title] Multicavitated left atrial myxoma mimicking a hydatid cyst.
  • Transthoracic 2D-echocardiogram showed a non-prolapsing ovoid mass attached to the left side of the interatrial septum.
  • Microscopically there were collections of "lipidic" cells embedded in the myxoid matrix, typical of cardiac myxoma.
  • Most myxomas are solid masses without a cystic architecture or cavitations.
  • The combination of a polycystic appearance of the mass and macroscopic areas of calcification is more frequently observed in hydatid cysts than in cardiac myxomas.
  • This peculiar structure of cardiac myxoma, to the best of our knowledge, has never been documented.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Left atrial myxoma associated with acute myocardial infarction and multiple cerebral infarctions: Report of a case.
  • We report a case of left atrial myxoma associated with acute myocardial infarction (AMI) in a 63-year-old man.
  • The postinterventional course was uneventful; however, on hospital day 5, pathological examination revealed platelet thrombus and myxomatous tissue from the particles aspirated by thrombectomy catheter, and transesophageal echocardiography showed a gelatinous mass in the left atrium.
  • Based on these findings, we diagnosed AMI caused by coronary embolization from a left atrial myxoma, and excision of the myxoma was scheduled.
  • Although coronary embolization induced by cardiac myxoma is rare, it should be considered in a young to middle-aged patient presenting with signs of AMI without coronary risk factors.

  • 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.

  • 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.
  • The embolus in the left anterior descending coronary artery was successfully removed with intracoronary catheter aspiration, and distal coronary flow was restored after the procedure.

  • [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] 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.
  • We also discuss the diagnosis, complications and treatment of infected atrial myxoma and illustrate the imaging findings.
