  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Pulmonary venous drainage through a highly vascularized left atrial tumor.
  • We present a patient with symptomatic congestive heart failure due to a left atrial sarcoma infiltrating and apparently occluding the left pulmonary veins.
  • The tumor was highly vascularized and enabled attenuated blood drainage from the left upper and lower pulmonary veins despite intra-operative appearance as completely obliterative, thus avoiding persistent left lung pulmonary edema.
  • The tumor was partially removed and the pathologic findings showed advanced angiogenesis.
  • However, we suggest that highly vascularized tumors (macroscopic totally occlusive) may serve as a sponge and enable attenuated blood flow through the tumor and hence may avoid a complete cut off in blood supply or drainage.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Venous line filtration: a novel technique for cases involving inferior vena caval and right atrial tumor and associated thrombus: a two-case series.
  • Two patients are presented with right atrial tumors, who were considered to be at risk for tumor thrombus migration down the venous line into the cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) circuit during surgical excision, which may lead to compromised or interrupted venous drainage.
  • In one case, tumor thrombus obstructed the filter, requiring the use of the bypass line around the filter, so venous return could be maintained.
  • The second case was a 37-year-old male (95 kg, 178 cm, BSA 2.17 m2), who presented with a very large angiosarcoma tumor involving almost the entire right atrium.
  • We have shown that venous line filtration with vacuum-assisted venous drainage can be performed safely, and should be considered in cases where there is tumor thrombus in the vena cava or right atrium, which may threaten venous return.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] [Significance of transesophageal echocardiography in the diagnosis of atrial tumor].
  • THE AIM OF WORK: To assess the diagnostic accuracy and clinical significance of transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) in the diagnosis of atrial tumors.
  • The authors own experiences with use of TEE images in the assessment of atrial tumors are reported.
  • RESULTS: We detected 16 atrial myxomas in 15 patients, one fibroelastoma, one leiomyosarcoma, and one metastatic adenocarcinoma.
  • There was no false negative TEE diagnosis, was one false positive diagnosis, yielding a 95% sensitivity and specifity of TEE in detection atrial tumor.
  • Patient with right atrial metastatatic adenocarcinoma is not surgically treated.
  • TTE detected atrial tumor in 15 (83%) patients.
  • CONCLUSION: Results of this work suggested that TEE is a safe procedure, high sensitive and specific, and accurate in the diagnosis of atrial tumors.
  • The ability of TEE to visualize both atria with great diagnostic accuracy makes it a very valuable procedure in the detection of atrial tumors.

  • Right atrial myxomas are uncommon heart tumors that can simulate nonspecific symptoms, such as fever, paroxysmal palpitations, chronic anemia, weight loss, and may escape timely diagnosis until the development of severe complications due to embolism.
  • In search for the source of palpitations, a 2D transthoracic echocardiography was performed, showing a right atrial mass.
  • Real time three-dimensional transesophageal echocardiography (RT3DTEE) was performed intraoperative and demonstrated very accurate information about the size and the morphology of the tumor.
  • This is the first case report of a right atrial myxoma visualized intraoperatively by RT3DTEE.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Severity of mitral regurgitation may be underestimated in the presence of a left atrial myxoma.
  • It is well known that mobile or large left atrial myxoma may lead to valve obstruction and insufficiency, and affect transmitral valve flow.
  • The case is reported of a 47-year-old woman with severe mitral regurgitation (MR) and huge left atrial myxoma (6?4?3 cm).
  • Hence, a large atrial tumor may mask the severity of concomitant unrelated MR in routine echocardiography.
  • Intraoperative TEE helped in assessing correct mitral valve function after tumor extirpation.
  • Preoperative echocardiography should focus on mitral valve dysfunction in order to separate tumor-related and -unrelated valvular pathologies.

  • [Title] Large asymptomatic left atrial myxoma with ossification: case report.
  • BACKGROUND: Atrial myxomas are the most common primary cardiac tumors.
  • 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 was an incidental finding during a work-up for hemoptysis due to bronchectasis.
  • The coronary angiogram showed tumor vessels originating from the RCA.
  • The tumor macroscopically did not resemble a myxoma, considering its dimensions (12 x 10 cm) and its solid substance.
  • 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.

  • Studies revealed a 15-cm mass in the upper left lung, a 10-cm mass in the medial base of the left lung, and a 5-cm left atrial mass that involved the left lung, infiltrated the left pulmonary vein, and prolapsed into the mitral valve, causing intermittent obstruction.
  • The patient underwent surgical excision of the left atrial tumor.
  • Pathologic evaluation confirmed the diagnosis of monophasic synovial sarcoma.To our knowledge, this is only the 3rd report of left atrial invasion and resultant mitral valve obstruction from a synovial sarcoma that infiltrated the pulmonary vein.

  • [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.

  • A mobile left atrial tumor measuring 6 x 4 x 5 cm was found attached to the left atrial dome, left atrial cuff, and left pulmonary veins.
  • With each systolic atrial contraction, the mass prolapsed into the left ventricle across the mitral valve annulus, inducing a gradient of 19 mm Hg.
  • At the time of surgery, the findings confirmed that the mass was attached broadly to the left atrial dome wall-epicardium, and the attachments were similar to those of the transesophageal echocardiographic findings.
  • Atrial attachments extended from the base of the heart, along the atrioventricular groove, the left dome of the left atrium, the left atrial cuff, and the anterior aspect of both left pulmonary veins.
  • The tumor could not be adequately excised, and reconstruction of the defect was not feasible with the heart in situ.
  • We therefore decided to explant the heart and excise the tumor with a 0.5-cm margin of healthy tissue.
  • The broad left atrial defect was reconstructed with bovine pericardium.
  • The reconstruction encompassed the dome of the left atrium, the left atrial cuff, and the pulmonary veins.

  • [Title] The feasibility and outcome of nephron-sparing surgery for children with bilateral Wilms tumor. The St Jude Children's Research Hospital experience: 1999-2006.
  • BACKGROUND: Approximately 5% of children with Wilms tumor present with bilateral disease.
  • The authors of this report assessed the feasibility and outcome of nephron-sparing surgery in patients with bilateral Wilms tumor who were treated at a single institution.
  • The outcomes evaluated included surgical complications, tumor recurrence, renal function, and patient survival.
  • One patient who presented with renal failure and anaplastic histology underwent bilateral nephrectomies, and 1 patient with intra-atrial tumor extension underwent an ipsilateral nephrectomy/thrombectomy and subsequent contralateral partial nephrectomy.
  • Postoperative complications included persistent urine leak in 3 patients, macroscopic residual tumor in 2 patients, and pyelonephritis in 1 patient.
  • Long-term complications included local tumor recurrence in 2 patients, intestinal obstruction in 2 patients, ureteropelvic junction obstruction in 1 patient, and renal failure in 1 patient.
  • CONCLUSIONS: All patients who had bilateral Wilms tumors with favorable histology, except for 1 patient who had extensive tumor thrombus, underwent successful bilateral partial nephrectomies.
  • From this experience, the authors concluded that bilateral nephron-sparing surgery should be considered for all patients who have bilateral Wilms tumor with favorable histology, even if preoperative imaging studies suggest that the lesions are unresectable.

  • [Title] Eleven-year experience in diagnosis and surgical therapy of right atrial masses.
  • 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).
  • The histopathological examination of the surgically removed specimen revealed a benign tumor in eight patients (73%), and a malignant process in three (23%).
  • 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.
  • 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.

  • [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.
  • Tumor location further correlated with presenting symptoms.
  • Ninety-two percent of patients presenting with CHF had tumors attached to the atrial septum.
  • All patients exhibiting clefted tumor surface had a history of embolization.
  • A higher percentage of solid myxomas (93%) showed hemorrhage within the tumor than with papillary (56%).
  • Septal tumor location showed strong association with CHF, while extraseptal location correlated with neurologic events.

  • [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.
  • Mean tumor size was 45 x 5.5 cm.
  • 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] Matrix metalloproteinases and atrial remodeling in patients with mitral valve disease and atrial fibrillation.
  • BACKGROUND: Atrial fibrillation (AF) is associated with extracellular matrix remodeling involving atrial fibrosis and atrial dilatation.
  • Our aim was to study atrial structural remodeling and the expression of the angiotensin receptor subtypes and MMPs and their inhibitors (TIMPs) in patients with mitral valve disease with and without AF.
  • METHODS AND RESULTS: Biopsies from right and left atrial appendages (RA and LA) were taken from patients undergoing CABG (n=9, all in sinus rhythm (SR)) or mitral valve surgery (MVS; n=19; 9 with permanent AF and 10 in SR).
  • CONCLUSIONS: Concordant changes between MMP-expression and fibrosis during mitral valve disease, both in LA and RA, suggest involvement of MMPs in structural atrial remodeling.

  • [Title] Downregulation of connexin40 and increased prevalence of atrial arrhythmias in transgenic mice with cardiac-restricted overexpression of tumor necrosis factor.
  • Atrial arrhythmias, primarily atrial fibrillation, have been independently associated with structural remodeling and with inflammation.
  • We hypothesized that sustained inflammatory signaling by tumor necrosis factor (TNF) would lead to alterations both in underlying atrial myocardial structure and in atrial electrical conduction.
  • Atrial and ventricular conduction abnormalities were always evident on ECG in MHCsTNF mice, including a shortened atrioventricular interval with a wide QRS duration secondary to junctional rhythm.
  • In conclusion, sustained inflammatory signaling contributed to atrial structural remodeling and downregulation of connexin40 that was associated with an increased prevalence of atrial arrhythmias.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Inflammation and atrial fibrillation: is Chlamydia pneumoniae a candidate pathogen of atrial fibrillation?
  • Atrial fibrillation is the most common arrhythmia, however, the mechanism of atrial fibrillation is not well explained.
  • It has been considered that inflammation plays a role in atrial fibrillation, recently.
  • Patients undergoing coronary artery bypass graft are at high risk for developing postoperative atrial fibrillation.
  • The peak levels of C-reactive protein (CRP) were paralleled to the incidence of postoperative atrial fibrillation.
  • In general population, CRP was also higher in patients with atrial fibrillation than in control people.
  • Persistent atrial fibrillation patients had a higher CRP level than paroxysmal atrial fibrillation patients.
  • CRP was not only associated with the presence of atrial fibrillation but may also predict patients at increased risk for future development of atrial fibrillation.
  • Why inflammation markers in atrial fibrillation are high is a puzzling problem.
  • We hypothesized that Chlamydia pneumoniae infection is a possible cause of atrial fibrillation by initiating inflammation response.
  • It was demonstrated that infection of endothelial cells with C. pneumoniae elicited the production of Monocyte Chemoattractant Protein-1, interleukin-1, interleukin-8, interleukin-18, tumor necrosis factor, interferon and soluble intercellular adhesion molecule.
  • Most of these cytokines play a crucial role in inflammation response that associate with the initiating and maintenance of atrial fibrillation.
  • Some evidences showed that C. pneumoniae was the most likely pathogen of atrial fibrillation.
  • In epidemic study, the incidence of atrial fibrillation increased from younger to elder and atrial fibrillation was more common in men than in women. C. pneumoniae has the same epidemic trend as the incidence of atrial fibrillation.
  • Hypertension, myocardial infarction and reduced lung function are predictors of atrial fibrillation. C. pneumoniae infection is high in the patients with the above diseases. C. pneumoniae was found in endomyocardial biopsy samples, which supported C. pneumoniae was the candidate pathogen, too.
  • The pathology characters of C. pneumoniae infection are similar to that found in atrial fibrillation.
  • Seroepidemic study should be carried out to evaluate if there is relationship between C. pneumoniae and atrial fibrillation.
  • It will be a new target point to treat atrial fibrillation.

  • [Title] Bilobulated atrial myxoma originating from low interatrial septum.
  • 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.
  • The tumor was successfully resected without major complications and it was proven to be connected to the septum 1 cm above the mitral annulus.

  • [Title] Minimally invasive versus standard approach for excision of atrial masses.
  • The purpose of this study was to compare outcomes using a minimally invasive (mini-thoracotomy) versus standard (sternotomy) approach to the surgical resection of atrial masses.
  • METHODS: Analysis was based on 34 consecutive patients who underwent atrial mass resection at the New York-Presbyterian Hospital/Columbia Presbyterian Medical Center in New York, NY.
  • The reference (REF) group included 18 patients who underwent excision of an atrial mass via a standard approach (sternotomy).
  • The minimally invasive (MI) group included 16 patients who underwent excision of an atrial mass via a mini-thoracotomy.
  • CONCLUSIONS. Minimally invasive atrial mass excisions can be accomplished reliably without compromising complete tumor resection and without significant increases in operative times or serious adverse events.
