  • [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 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.
  • 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.

  • [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.
  • Intraoperatively, the patient developed acute cor pulmonale secondary to tumor embolization, with the immediate institution of support measures and cardiopulmonary bypass.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Although intracardiac myxoma is a benign tumor, it can be associated with severe and even fatal complications.

MedlinePlus Health Information. consumer health - Heart Surgery.

  • [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).
  • 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.
  • One patient died of heart failure after surgery.
  • 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.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Surgical resection of atrial myxomas.
  • Myxomas are the most common form of benign cardiac tumors; these tumors occur primarily in the atria.
  • Although these tumors are benign, myxomas have the potential to cause serious complications, including embolic events and partial or complete obstruction of intracardiac blood flow.
  • Currently, there is no effective medical treatment, and surgical excision of the tumor is necessary.
  • Typically, surgical resection of an atrial myxoma is performed via a median sternotomy with the patient on cardiopulmonary bypass.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Right atrial and septal reconstruction after tumor excision: the single-patch technique.
  • Surgical excision is the only therapy for benign atrial tumors, if serious complications are to be avoided.
  • We propose a simplified technique whereupon a single autologous pericardial patch is used to not only close the septal defect, but to also reconstruct the right atrium.
  • This new technique allows for wide excision of tumors without reduction of the right atrium, distortion of the tricuspid valve or traction on the atrioventricular node.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Minimally invasive versus standard approach for excision of atrial masses.
  • BACKGROUND: Minimally invasive cardiac surgical procedures have become ubiquitous over the past decade.
  • 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.
  • Tissue diagnosis of the masses resected included myxoma (n = 24), fibroblastoma (n = 3), B-cell lymphoma (n = 1), and other benign masses (n = 6).
  • 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.

  • [Title] [Atrial tumors in cardiac MRI].
  • Cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is an important tool for the diagnosis of cardiac masses.
  • Various cardiac tumors are predisposed to occurring in atrial structures.
  • The aim of this review article is the description of atrial tumors and their morphological features in MRI.
  • In general, cardiac tumors are rare: approximately 0.001 - 0.03 % in autopsy studies.
  • About 75 % of them are benign.
  • The most common cardiac tumor is the myxoma.
  • Fibroelastomas are the most common tumors of the cardiac valves.
  • Amongst primary cardiac malignancies, sarcomas are most common and favor the atria.
  • Secondary malignancies of the heart are far more common than primary ones (20 - 40 times).
  • In case of known malignancies, approximately 10 % of patients develop cardiac metastasis at the end of their disease.
  • Since they are not real atrial tumors, thrombi and anatomical structures of the atria have to be differentiated from other pathologies.

  • [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.

  • [Title] A right atrial mass and a pseudomass.
  • Right atrial (RA) masses are rare entities often detected incidentally during imaging studies.
  • Leading etiologies of right atrial masses are tumor, thrombi, and vegetations.
  • We present two cases of right atrial masses, a cardiac lipoma and an artifact.
  • Clinical and echocardiographic characteristics of benign cardiac tumors are reviewed.
  • We then highlight the importance of considering artifact in the differential diagnosis of atrial masses.
  • Finally, we discuss echocardiographic characteristics of right atrial masses that may provide clues for diagnosis.
  • Right atrial masses, often detected incidentally during imaging studies, are uncommon and can be due to many etiologies including tumors, thrombus, vegetations, normal variants, and artifacts.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Review of superior vena cava resection in the management of benign disease and pulmonary or mediastinal malignancies.
  • BACKGROUND: Obstruction of the superior vena cava (SVC) by tumor or benign disease implies unreconstructable disease and poor outcome.
  • We analyzed the operative results, graft patency, and survival in patients undergoing SVC resection and reconstruction for benign disease and pulmonary or mediastinal malignancy.
  • METHODS: Patients undergoing SVC resection from 1997 to 2007 for surgical management of benign and invasive neoplasms were retrospectively reviewed.
  • Two patients (10%) with benign processes required reconstruction for chronic SVC syndrome.
  • Major postoperative morbidities included atrial fibrillation in 5, stroke in 2, respiratory failure in 3, myocardial infarction in 1, and Horner syndrome in 1.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Resection and reconstruction may be safely performed in selected patients for benign and malignant obstruction or infiltration of the SVC.

  • [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.
  • The probability of arterial embolism is closely correlated with the morphology of the tumor.
  • These may present as acute myocardial ischemia with the typical clinical symptoms of acute myocardial infarction, as a silent infarct, shock, syncope or as sudden cardiac death.
  • Besides our case report this paper will give an overview on published data on coronary embolism in patients with atrial myxoma.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Cardiac autotransplantation for removal of left atrial hemangioma and a review of the literature.
  • We describe the management of a patient who presented with symptoms of severe congestive heart failure.
  • All cardiac valves were normal, as was the left ventricular ejection fraction.
  • 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.
  • The heart was reimplanted back into the pericardial cavity.
  • The pathology diagnosis was a benign cavernous hemangioma.
  • The sinus rhythm recovered following removal of the aortic cross-clamp and reperfusion of the heart.
  • A review of the literature on cardiac autotransplantation revealed that this type of surgery has been performed frequently in centers that have a cardiac transplantation program or a surgeon who has cardiac transplantation experience.
  • To our knowledge, this report is the first of cardiac autotransplantation for benign hemangioma.

  • Intravenous leiomyomatosis (IVL) is an uncommon neoplasm characterized by the growth of a benign-looking smooth muscle tumor into the venous system.
  • Intracardiac extension of this tumor is rare and may be misdiagnosed as right atrial myxoma unless the extracardiac part of the tumor is fully evaluated.
  • We report a case of a 76-year-old woman whose preoperative diagnosis was right atrial myxoma.
  • Intraoperative transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) revealed that the tumor had an extracardiac origin, resulting in tumor removal from the heart chamber and a part of the inferior vena cava (IVC) under circulatory arrest.
  • When the findings of no attachment of the tumor to the interatrial septum or the right atrial wall and the tumor extension through the IVC are obtained by TEE examination, IVL should be considered as a differential diagnosis.

  • [Title] Papillary fibroelastoma of the left atrial wall: a case report.
  • Cardiac papillary fibroelastoma is a rare, benign cardiac tumor.
  • Although transthoracic echocardiography is usually sufficient for the diagnosis of most cardiac tumors, small tumors such as papillary fibroelastoma may be missed.
  • Despite their benign histology, and independent of their size, they should be resected surgically because of their high potential for embolization.
  • In this report, we present a case of papillary fibroelastoma located on the left atrial wall, presenting with symptoms of cerebral ischemia.
  • Pertinent literature is also reviewed for this rare and benign cardiac tumor.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Left atrial sarcoma presenting as cerebral infarction.
  • OBJECTIVE: Primary heart tumors are rare and most of them are benign.
  • The majority of benign cardiac tumors are myxomas, although almost all malignant cardiac tumors are sarcomas.
  • Malignant cardiac tumors usually appear in children.
  • METHODS: There have been cases described of stroke secondary to embolism caused by cardiac sarcomas, but it is rarely the first manifestation of the tumor.
  • RESULTS: We describe a 48-year-old man who suffered a cardioembolic stroke secondary to cardiac sarcoma.
  • CONCLUSION: Malignant cardiac tumors typically appear through 1 of 4 mechanisms: obstruction to blood flow and interference with valve function; local invasion causing arrhythmias or pericardial effusion; embolic phenomena or systemic symptoms.
  • We analyze the characteristics of cardiac sarcoma and the pathophysiology of embolism.

  • METHODS: From 1964 to 2005, 323 patients had cardiac surgery for resection of primary cardiac tumors; 53 (16%) patients had primary ventricular tumors.
  • RESULTS: Patients with ventricular tumors were younger than those with atrial tumors (34.8 vs 54.6 years; P < .0001).
  • New York Heart Association functional status was similar at presentation, although patients with atrial tumors had increased risk of atrial fibrillation (P < .05), thromboembolic events (P = .04), and mitral stenosis (P = .008) at the time of presentation.
  • Operative mortality was 4% and 0% in the ventricular and atrial groups, respectively (P = not significant).
  • At follow-up, 81% and 74% of ventricular and atrial tumors, respectively, were minimally symptomatic (New York Heart Association class I/II; P = .13).

  • [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.
  • CASE PRESENTATION: An 84-year-old Hispanic man presented with complaints of dizziness upon standing, and with no prior history of heart murmurs, syncope, shortness of breath, or chest pain.
  • 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] Cardiac tumor comprising two components including typical myxoma and atypical hypercellularity suggesting a malignant change.
  • BACKGROUND: Cardiac myxoma is a benign neoplasm and is not considered to carry a risk of malignant transformation.
  • We describe a case of a cardiac tumor comprising typical myxoma and atypical cellular parts.
  • METHODS AND RESULTS: A 72-year-old woman was found to have a tumor in the left atrial chamber after undergoing echocardiographic investigation and so she underwent tumor excision surgery.
  • The excised tumor was composed of two components with different features with a smooth transition from one type to the other.
  • The apex of the tumor showed a gelatinous and villous appearance on gross examination, and histological examination revealed that the tumor cells had small oval nuclei and eosinophilic cytoplasm and were arranged in cords and vasoformative structures in the myxoid matrix.
  • The base of the tumor appeared as a solid mass on gross examination with hypercellular proliferation of spindle-shaped tumor cells and intersecting fascicles observed histologically.
  • Nuclear mitosis was seen in more than 10/10 high-power fields, coagulation necrosis was prominent, and invasion of the atrial wall was seen.
  • On immunohistochemistry, the tumor cells were found to be positive for alpha-smooth muscle actin, calretinin, and CD34, and this immunoreactivity was decreased at the tip.
  • CONCLUSIONS: We diagnosed this tumor as cardiac myxoma with an atypical hypercellular component suggesting a malignant change.
  • It is important to recognize that a cardiac myxoma could be accompanied by atypical change.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Cystic tumor of the atrioventricular node: an unexpected finding in an explanted heart.
  • SUMMARY: We report herein a unique case of cystic tumor of atrioventricular (AV) node (CTAVN), which, to our knowledge, is the first of its kind diagnosed in an explanted heart specimen and only the fourth diagnosed antemortem.
  • Often, this rare tumor can only be diagnosed by careful gross examination and adequate sampling of AV node region.
  • It is an important differential diagnosis in young patients with syncopal attacks and varying degrees of heart blocks.
  • CONTEXT: CTAVN is a rare, benign tumor.
  • Patients typically present with conduction abnormalities including complete heart block leading to sudden cardiac death.
  • Most cases have been identified at autopsy; no cases to our knowledge have been reported in an explanted heart.
  • DESIGN: A 19 year-old female presented to the cardiac transplant clinic for evaluation of severe congestive heart failure felt to be secondary to postpartum cardiomyopathy.
  • The patient's history was significant for congenital heart block requiring placement of a permanent pacemaker at 12 years of age.
  • Seven months later, orthotopic cardiac transplantation was performed.
  • RESULTS: On gross examination, the explanted heart weighed 500 g and had biventricular dilatation.
  • CONCLUSIONS: CTAVN occurs exclusively in the area of the AV node, tricuspid valve, and inferior atrial septum.
  • We report herein a case of CTAVN, the first of its kind diagnosed in an explanted heart specimen and only the fourth diagnosed antemortem.

  • The prognosis is quite variable, because this benign tumor may grow, involute, or stop growing; therefore, resection is usually the treatment of choice.
  • In patients with tumors of the left atrium, percutaneous balloon mitral valvulotomy is generally contraindicated.
  • The injection of contrast medium into the left coronary artery showed a hemangioma at the posterior wall of the left atrium.
  • In this patient, a nonsurgical approach was adequate because of the lack of growth of the hemangioma in the left atrium.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Symptomatic metastatic right atrial lymphoma in a patient with AIDS presenting with pulmonary embolization.
  • Tumors involving the heart are rare, and the majority of them are benign.
  • Secondary lymphoma with localization to the heart is the third most common malignant heart tumor and is more common, by far, than primary cardiac lymphomas.
  • Patients can also present with obstructive symptoms, based on the location and size of the tumor, and signs such as elevated jugular venous pressure, peripheral edema, ascites, and hepatomegaly.
  • Transthoracic echocardiography is the initial modality of choice for diagnosis of cardiac lymphomas because it is readily available and helps localize the tumor, but transesophageal echocardiography and magnetic resonance imaging remain the best tests for evaluation.
  • Treatment consists primarily of chemotherapy, and anticoagulation can be used in certain cases where embolization of the tumor is likely.

  • [Title] Surgical treatment of multiple intracardiac and pulmonary artery tumor implants embolic from uterine intravascular leiomyomatosis.
  • Intravenous uterine leiomyomatosis is the invasion of the para-uterine veins by bundles of benign uterine muscle.
  • These muscle bundles can grow and extend directly to pelvic organs or embolize to the right cardiac chambers or pulmonary artery.
  • We report a patient who presented with two large mobile atrial masses that were seen on echocardiography.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • Cardiac papillary fibroelastoma (CPF) is a rare primary benign cardiac tumor.
  • Before the use of echocardiography, the lesion was identified at autopsy or incidentally during cardiac surgery.
  • CPF is the third most common primary cardiac tumor after atrial myxoma and lipoma, and is the most common tumor of the valvular endothelium.
  • Transthoracic echocardiography (TTE) and transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) permit diagnosis of the tumor in living patients.
  • CPF may be the cause of cerebrovascular or cardiac ischemia due to embolization or occlusion of the vascular ostia.
  • Embolic material may arise from fragments of the tumor itself, or from surrounding thrombus.
  • The case is reported of a patient with CPF of the aortic valve in whom TEE diagnosis was conducted and the tumor removed surgically.

  • [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.
  • Demographics, tumor histology, operative data, and mortality rates were analyzed.
  • Follow-up was complete in all patients.Of the 20 patients, 17 had malignant lesions, and 3 had benign disease.
  • Two patients had left ventricular lesions and the rest had left atrial lesions.
  • Fourteen patients had previous resection of their cardiac tumors, and 1 patient had repeat autotransplantation for recurrent disease.
  • There were no operative deaths in patients undergoing autotransplantation alone (0/15), and 3 operative deaths in patients undergoing combined cardiac autotransplantation and pneumonectomy (3/6, 50%).
  • All 3 patients with benign disease survived surgery and are alive without recurrent disease.
  • 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.

  • A significant percentage of donors may be found among patients primarily suffering from benign neoplasms whose nature does not show malignant potential and do not metastasize.
  • To date, there have been no reports about successful organ transplantation from an organ donor with cardiac myxoma.
  • AIM: The aim of this report was to present a successful transplantation of cadaveric kidney grafts from a 61-year-old female donor with a left atrial cardiac myxoma, which initially appeared as an embolic cerebral infarct.
  • CONCLUSION: Patients with myxoma should be accepted as donors, since the risk of dying on the waiting list is greater than the tumor transfer risk.

  • [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.
  • Cause of death was cardiac in 40% of the patients (n = 2) and non-cardiac in the other 60% (n = 3).
  • CONCLUSIONS: Surgical excision of cardiac myxoma carries a low operative risk and gives excellent short-term and long-term results.
  • Surgical excision of the tumor appears to be curative, with few recurrences at long-term follow-up.

  • [Title] Fetal cardiac tumors: a single-center experience of 40 cases.
  • OBJECTIVE: To determine the natural history and outcome of fetal cardiac tumors.
  • METHODS: This was a retrospective cohort study of all prenatally detected cases of cardiac tumors at a tertiary cardiac care center.
  • RESULTS: Forty fetuses were identified to have one or several cardiac tumors in association with fetal hydrops (18%), ventricular obstruction (30%) and/or arrhythmia (13%).
  • On follow-up, 95% of all live-born cases with rhabdomyomas were free of cardiac symptoms but 88% had tuberous sclerosis.
  • In contrast, all three fetuses with cardiac fibroma are alive and have a biventricular physiology.
  • One fetus with a large atrial hemangioendothelioma died in early infancy.
  • Fetal or neonatal death was associated with an earlier cardiac anomaly diagnosis, earlier delivery, larger tumor size and fetal hydrops at presentation.
  • CONCLUSIONS: The outcome of fetal cardiac tumors was predicted by the etiology and size of the cardiac mass and the presence of hydrops.
  • Although most cardiac rhabdomyomas have a relatively benign perinatal course, the long-term prognosis is determined by the neurological manifestations associated with tuberous sclerosis.

  • Lipomatous hypertrophy of the heart is a benign rare tumor characterized by fatty tissue deposits in the interatrial septum.
  • We report the case of a 74-year-old female patient, in which a cardiac mass protruding in the right atrium was diagnosed by transthoracic echocardiography.
  • The diagnosis of lipomatous hypertrophy of the interatrial septum is confirmed by MRI, which shows a well limited and not encapsulated tumor, appearing in increased signal density on T1-weighted images, and that decreases with fat-saturated sequences.
  • This tumor did not enhance with the administration of contrast material.
  • The benign and lipomatous nature of the lesion is confirmed, thus making the use of histology unnecessary.

  • [Title] Cardiac autotransplantation for primary cardiac tumors.
  • BACKGROUND: Complete tumor resection is the optimal treatment of cardiac tumors.
  • Anatomic accessibility and proximity to vital structures complicates resection of tumors involving the left heart.
  • The results of standard resection and resection with orthotopic heart transplantation are dismal.
  • 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.
  • Demographics, tumor histology, operative data, and mortality were analyzed.
  • 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.
  • Eight patients had previous resection of their cardiac tumor, and 1 patient had a repeat autotransplantation for recurrent disease.
  • All patients with benign tumors are alive without evidence of recurrence.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Cardiac autotransplantation is a feasible technique for resection of complex left-sided cardiac tumors.
  • Benefits of this technique include improved accessibility and ability to perform a complete tumor resection with reliable cardiac reconstruction.

  • Myxomas are the most common primary cardiac neoplasms.
  • They are generally benign and most commonly arise from the left atrium.
  • The clinical course of the left atrial myxoma is characterized by symptoms resulting from obstructive, embolic, or "constitutional" effects of the tumor (Goodwin, Lancet.
  • 1972;52:9; Nasser et al, Am Heart J. 1972;83:694).
  • Embolic ischemic symptom manifestations are typically cerebral, although they could be peripheral (Greenwood, Am Heart J. 1972;83:694).
  • Here, we describe an unusual clinical presentation of left atrial myxoma in a young boy, which initially was assessed as allergic dermatitis and later as vasculitis.

  • [Title] Primary cardiac lymphoma: molecular cytogenetic characterization of a rare entity.
  • BACKGROUND: The majority of cardiac atrial neoplasms represent benign myxomas.
  • Rarely, malignant cardiac neoplasms are encountered and can include primary cardiac neoplasms, as well as secondary tumors involving the heart.
  • As many cardiac neoplasms lack pathognomonic clinical features, histopathologic diagnosis is crucial for classification and appropriate treatment of these neoplasms.
  • METHODS: A 60-year-old man presented with superior vena cava syndrome, and computed tomographic scan revealed an infiltrative mass of the right atrium that nearly filled the atrial chamber and partially occluded superior vena cava flow.
  • RESULTS: Histologic examination revealed complete replacement of the atrial wall by diffuse sheets of pleomorphic lymphoid cells with occasional smaller plasmacytoid cells.
  • A diagnosis of primary cardiac diffuse large B-cell lymphoma with plasmacytoid differentiation was established and was supported by cytogenetic studies demonstrating the presence of a t(14;18)(q32;q21) translocation in addition to other chromosomal abnormalities.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • Intravenous leiomyomatosis is characterized by a proliferation of benign smooth muscular tissue growing into uterine with malignant appearance.
  • On extremely rare occasions, the tumor may grow out of the pelvis and extend into the inferior vena cava and the right atrium.
  • We report a case of intravenous leiomyomatosis extending into the right atrium.
  • Echocardiography showed a homogenous mass extending from the inferior vena cava to the right atrium, without evidence of adherence to the right atrial wall, the left ventricular ejection fraction was only 60%.
  • Based on the findings, the initial diagnosis was intracardiac and intravenous tumor.
  • An operation was performed through a sternotomy and laparotomy to remove the whole tumor from the left common iliac vein to the right atrium, ligate left internal iliac vein mean-wile.
  • Immunohistochemical studies revealed that the tumor cells were fusiform shape, there was no karyokinesis and necrosis, and the tumor cells were positive for smooth muscle antigen and desmin, as well as estrogen receptor and progesterone receptor.
