  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Left atrial myxoma with an atrial septal defect.
  • In a 62-year old woman with arterial hypertension, a left atrial myxoma and a concomitant atrial septal defect, diagnosed intraoperatively, were recognized.
  • The atrial septal defect was not observed pre-operatively by transthoracic and transoesophageal echocardiography with color Doppler.
  • The myxoma was pedunculated and situated on the inferior part of the interatrial septum and moved to the left ventricle in the diastolic phase.
  • The histopathologic finding was consistent with the diagnosis of myxoma.

  • [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.
  • No recurrences of tumor or septal leakage were found in the complete 1- to 18-month follow-up.
  • 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 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.

  • [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.
  • 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.

  • [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.
  • 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.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [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.
  • No flow was detected across the septal patch on predischarge echocardiography.
  • 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.

  • [Title] A novel approach for a novel combination: a trans-septal biopsy of left atrial mass in recurrent phyllodes tumour.
  • Transthoracic echocardiography revealed a large left atrial mass.
  • Although a diagnosis of myxoma was likely, there was concern that this was a cardiac metastasis.
  • A tissue diagnosis was mandatory before further thoracic surgery could be considered.
  • This was obtained via a trans-septal puncture using transoesophageal echocardiographic guidance.
  • Histology confirmed a diagnosis of myxoma, and our patient underwent successful surgery.
  • This case highlights the importance of obtaining accurate tissue diagnosis and of excluding metastatic disease in patients with a cardiac mass and a history of tumour, prior to deciding whether surgical excision is warranted.

  • [Title] [Recurrent cardiac myxoma that developed rapidly in a short period].
  • A 55-year-old woman, who had undergone extirpation of left atrial myxoma 3-years before, was admitted to our hospital with dyspnea.
  • Transthoracic echocardiography showed that the mass was attached to the left atrial septal wall and had a pendulum-like movement.
  • We urgently performed an operation for recurrent left atrial myxoma.
  • Through atrial transseptal approach, a huge myxomatus tumor was observed in the LA.
  • We repaired the disrupted endocardium and performed Dacron patch repair of the atrial septal defect.
  • The excised tumor was found to be myxoma on pathological examination similar to the previous tumor.
  • We report a case of recurrent left atrial myxoma with rapid growth in a short time period.

  • [Title] Minimally invasive surgery for cardiac myxomas using an upper hemi-sternotomy and biatrial septal approach.
  • Cardiac myxoma morbidity and mortality depends on early diagnosis, adequate exposure, complete resection, minimal manipulation and unifocal presence.
  • We reviewed our cases of cardiac myxoma excised via an upper hemi-sternotomy with a biatrial septal cardiac approach, to demonstrate this technique as a valid alternative to a full-length median sternotomy.
  • Standard aortobicaval cardiopulmonary bypass and myocardial protection were established with complete tumour excision via a biatrial septal approach commenced in the left atrial dome and extended to the right atrial appendage.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Most proposed benefits of minimally invasive surgery were demonstrated in cardiac myxoma application without significant compromise to patient care and recovery using upper hemi-sternotomy and biatrial septal approach.
  • Cardiac myxoma excision via upper hemi-sternotomy and biatrial septal approach can be achieved without compromise to patient care.

  • [Title] [Multiple recurrence of cardiac myxoma in a Carney complex patient 4 years after the first operation].
  • Carney complex is a rare syndrome which includes cardiac myxoma, hyperactive endocrine neoplasm, spotty pigmented skin, and extracardiac myxomatous tumors.
  • We report a case of a 26-year-old woman with Carney complex in whom recurrent multiple cardiac myxomas were resected 4 years after the first operation for left atrial (LA) myxoma.
  • In February 2001, she was diagnosed with Carney complex because of evidence of LA myxoma, her spotty pigmented skin lesions, her past history and family history of cardiac myxoma in her mother.
  • Then, LA myxoma was successfully resected through the superior trans-septal approach and has been followed-up by ultrasound cardiography (UCG) every 6-month after discharge.
  • We found the 3rd myxoma during surgery, resembling a flat polyp in the LA just at the inflow of the right upper pulmonary vein.
  • Sixteen months after the 2nd operation, she has been doing well without any sign of recurrence of myxoma.
