  • A 60 year-old male was referred for treatment of a cardiac myxoma in the right atrium.
  • He had a past history of left atrial cardiac myxoma at age 49 and pituitary microadenoma related to acromegaly at age 55.
  • The intracardiac tumor was resected and its pathology was compatible with myxoma.
  • 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.

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

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Right atrial myxoma associated with an atrial septal defect by real-time three-dimensional echocardiography.
  • 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).

  • When the examination was compared with X-ray taken 4 days earlier by chance, a large tumor was now detected in the right heart and was suspected to be the cause of this complication after his death.
  • Necropsy found a 3.8 x 3.5 x 1.0 cm myxoid tumor arising in the right atrium and a large fragment of this type of tumor was at the pulmonary trunk.
  • Many old myxoma fragments were noted in the bilateral peripheral branch of the pulmonary artery.
  • It was concluded that the abnormal nodules were old pulmonary fragments and the cause of death was pulmonary embolism of a large fragment originated from the atrial myxoma.
  • An asymptomatic right atrial myxoma is extremely rare but nevertheless possible to unexpected death like this case.

  • 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.

  • OBJECTIVE: An older man with a history of urothelial cancer presented with an incidental right atrial mass.
  • Cardiac MRI showed a pedunculated right atrial mass that was homogeneous and of intermediate signal intensity on T1- and T2-weighted images.
  • CONCLUSION: A myxoma is the most common benign primary intracavitary cardiac mass.
  • Although the MRI features are not pathognomonic, certain features such as location, presence of a stalk, and noninfiltrating nature may help to distinguish a myxoma from other intracavitary masses such as a thrombus, metastases, and primary cardiac malignancy.
  • The final pathologic diagnosis was a right atrial myxoma.

  • Right atrial myxomas are rare intracardiac tumors that often pose difficulties in diagnosis.
  • Right ventricular failure and ascites ensuing from tricuspid valve orifice obstruction are potentially dangerous complications.
  • Early diagnosis of cardiac myxoma is important since surgical treatment leads to disappearance of all symptoms with a low rate of recurrence and good long-term survival.
  • Nonspecific extracardiac symptoms, signs, complications, and laboratory findings may be the initial manifestations contributing to misdiagnosis of these rare but totally treatable atrial tumors.

  • [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.
  • In the first 2 patients, exploration and excision were conducted through an oblique right atriotomy.
  • 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.
  • CONCLUSIONS: The excision of atrial myxomas with the da Vinci S Surgical System is feasible, efficacious, and safe.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Atrial myxoma: trends in management.
  • 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.

  • 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] 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.
  • 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] 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.

  • [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.
  • FINDINGS: Right fronto-parietal craniotomy revealed lesions with haemorrhagic, calcified areas and a large cystic component was decompressed.
  • 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.

  • 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.

  • [Title] [Left atrial sarcoma with the initial diagnosis of myxoma].
  • The majority of these tumors are benign, with myxomas located in the left atrium being the most common form.
  • Almost all malignant tumors are sarcomas and occur preferentially in the right side of the heart.
  • Echocardiography revealed a left atrial mass that was interpreted as atrial myxoma.
  • At the operation, the tumor which was lobulated and had a smooth surface was arising from posterior wall of left atrium extending into the mitral annulus.
  • Wide surgical excision was possible with left atrial reconstruction and mitral valve replacement.

  • [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.
  • CONCLUSION: We consider our case as extremely rare because of the asymptomatic course despite the large size of the tumor, the blood supply from the right coronary artery and the bone formation.

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

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Thymoma arising within cardiac myxoma.
  • 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] Clinical experiences of cardiac myxoma.
  • Although cardiac myxoma is rare, it is the most common primary cardiac tumor.
  • Seventy-four cases of cardiac myxoma that were surgically treated in our center between August 1980 and February 2005 were retrospectively reviewed.
  • Seventy cases were located in the left atrium, 3 in the right atrium and 1 in the right ventricle.
  • The myxoma in the right ventricle could not be resected completely, due to severe infiltration.
  • There were no hospital deaths, and 7 patients suffered from postoperative complications including atrial fibrillation in 2 cases.
  • In conclusion, in this study there was no recurrence of tumors after complete resection and surgical resection is considered to be the curative method of treatment for cardiac myxoma.

  • A partially calcified right atrial thrombus mimicking myxoma with recurrent pulmonary embolism has not been previously reported in a patient who also had systemic lupus erythematosus and secondary antiphospholipid syndrome.
  • Transthoracic and transesophageal echocardiography showed a right atrial mass that was highly suggestive of myxoma, and the patient subsequently underwent surgery.
  • In our patient, the preoperative investigations could not differentiate the partially calcified right atrial thrombus from a myxoma, and the diagnosis was made postoperatively.

  • This is the first reported attempt to examine the emboliogenic potential of cardiac myxoma in patients with acute stroke through the monitoring of microembolic signals (MES) by transcranial doppler.
  • A CT scan of the brain demonstrated a large acute infraction in the territory of the right middle cerebral artery (MCA) and another smaller one in the territory of the posterior cerebral artery on the same side.
  • Transesophagial echocardiography (TEE) identified a 5 cm left atrial mass, which was highly suspected to be an atrial myxoma attached to the interatrial septum and prolapsed through the mitral valve.

  • [Title] An atypically localized atrial myxoma: a case report.
  • 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.
  • 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] 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.

  • 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.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Eleven-year experience in diagnosis and surgical therapy of right atrial masses.
  • BACKGROUND: Tumors arising from the right atrium are quite rare, and require special care during differential diagnosis for their management.
  • A review of surgical experience with right atrial tumors in 11 patients from our institution has been presented in this article.
  • METHODS: Eleven cases, operated for a tumor mass in the right atrium in our institution between January 1993 and December 2004, were retrospectively reviewed for their clinical presentation, diagnostic workup, method of surgical procedure, and histopathologic findings.
  • RESULTS: Right atrial tumors were diagnosed in 11 patients (6 males and 5 females).
  • In eight patients with a benign tumor, atrial myxoma was the leading cause in half of the cases.
  • Hydatid cyst (n = 2), lipoma (n = 1), and right atrial thrombus (n = 1) were detected in the remaining four patients.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Tumors of the right atrium are rarely seen, and necessitate a unique attention during the process of diagnosis and surgical treatment.
  • We present our surgical experience of 11 patients with right atrial mass.
  • The differentiation of the right atrial tumors with the diagnostic tools before surgery, the determination of the spreading, and the structural properties of the mass may designate surgical approach and prognosis.

  • The initial cardiac tumor was successfully resected through a right atrium approach and the tricuspid valve was changed with a biological prosthesis; the patient has been followed-up by ultrasound echocardiography every 6-month after discharge.
  • Four years after, the echocardiography revealed one masse in the left atrium, which was resected using a trans-septal approach.
  • After another three years, the echocardiography revealed once again two masses, this time in the right atrium and left ventricle.
  • The third surgery was performed and all 2 myxomas were successfully resected through a combined right atrial and left ventricle approach.
  • One year after the third operation, she has been doing well without any sign of recurrence of myxoma.
  • A long-term follow-up is mandatory in patients after the resection of a cardiac myxoma.
