4. Caballero PE: Left atrial sarcoma presenting as cerebral infarction. Neurologist; 2008 Mar;14(2):131-3
MedlinePlus Health Information. consumer health - Soft Tissue Sarcoma.

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

MedlinePlus Health Information. consumer health - MRI Scans.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Multidetector CT and MR imaging of cardiac tumors.
  • The purpose of this article is to provide a current review of the spectrum of multidetector CT (MDCT) and MRI findings for a variety of cardiac neoplasms.
  • In the diagnosis of cardiac tumors, the use of MDCT and MRI can help differentiate benign from malignant masses.
  • Especially, the use of MDCT is advantageous in providing anatomical information and MRI is useful for tissue characterization of cardiac masses.
  • Knowledge of the characteristic MRI findings of benign cardiac tumors or thrombi can be helpful to avoid unnecessary surgical procedures.
  • Presurgical assessment of malignant cardiac tumors with the use of MDCT and MRI may allow determination of the resectability of tumors and planning for the reconstruction of cardiac chambers.

COS Scholar Universe. author profiles.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] CT and MR imaging findings of benign cardiac tumors.
  • This imaging review describes the appearance of benign cardiac tumors on CT and MRI.
  • Although rare, benign tumors outnumber their primary malignant counterparts three to one.
  • Since mortality varies directly with invasion, identifying the neoplasm at an early stage helps focus treatment, especially in benign cases, which generally respond well to surgical resection.
  • In adults and children, myxomas and rhabdomyomas, respectively, represent the most common benign tumors, which can be grouped into tissue-specific subtypes, such as rhabdomyomas, fibromas, lipomas, teratomas, etc.
  • Besides their variable prevalence in particular age groups, these tumors also differ with regard to their gender predilection, location, and number.
  • As with all cardiac tumors, echocardiographic findings usually suggest the initial diagnosis but cross-sectional imaging with CT and MRI can help resolve diagnostically challenging cases.
  • Through dynamic techniques, MRI, in addition to morphologic characterization, can depict the pathophysiological effects of these tumors, for instance, with regard to myocardial contraction, valvular function, or blood flow.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Cardiac rhabdomyoma with tuberous sclerosis: a case report.
  • BACKGROUND: Rhabdomyomas are the most common benign cardiac neoplasms occurring in the fetus and neonate, with most of them identified within the first year of life.
  • Cardiac rhabdomyomas are frequently associated with tuberous sclerorosis.
  • CASE: A 25-year-old, pregnant woman with no remarkable personal or family history was referred to us for a suspected fetal cardiac anomaly.
  • Postnatal echocardiography confirmed the presence of cardiac rhabdomyoma, and periventricular subependymal multiple hamartomas were diagnosed by postnatal magnetic resonance imaging.
  • CONCLUSION: When fetal cardiac rhabdomyoma is diagnosed, careful evaluation of other fetal structures, including brain and renal parenchyma, should be performed to search for signs of tuberous sclerosis.

  • [Title] Benign cardiac neoplasms: the experience at the Cardiovascular Center of Puerto Rico and the Caribbean.
  • INTRODUCTION: Neoplasms of the heart are extremely rare and difficult to diagnose.
  • In this study, we intend to describe the experience at the Cardiovascular Center of Puerto Rico and the Caribbean (CCPRC) dealing with benign cardiac neoplasms.
  • A total of 77 cases with a diagnosis of Benign Heart Neoplasm were found from 1992 to 2008 but only those with an official pathologic report (n = 43) were considered.
  • For interpretation of results, a p-value < 0.05 was considered significant.
  • RESULTS: The mean age for diagnosis was 51.49 years.
  • The most common presenting symptom by which these patients sought medical attention was congestive heart failure (35%), followed by chest pain (18%) and neurologic symptoms (14%).
  • The most common location of the mass was the left atrium (81%) and overall, the most common heart neoplasm in this study was myxoma (83.7%).
  • CONCLUSIONS: This study of a total of 43 pathologically confirmed benign cardiac neoplasms admitted to the Cardiovascular Center of Puerto Rico and the Caribbean from 1992 to 2008 validates the fact that heart neoplasms represent a fairly rare diagnosis.
  • It is also consistent with previously published series that establish myxoma as the most common of these benign neoplasms.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Benign cardiac tumors of the pluripotent mesenchyme.
  • Among benign primary cardiac tumors, myxomas and papillary fibroelastomas are the most common.
  • Cardiac myxomas arise from pluripotent mesenchymal cells and are seen as intracardiac, glistening polypoid masses arising most frequently from the interatrial septum in the left atrium.
  • These tumors can be sporadic or familial.
  • Embolism is often the mode of presentation for both of the tumors; myxomas are also associated with obstructive and constitutional symptoms.
  • In contrast, neurogenic tumors (paraganglia or nerve sheath tumors) are exceedingly rare and occur as epicardial and infrequently as intracatdiac masses.
  • The tumors are often incidentally diagnosed by the usual echocardiography, but magnetic resonance imaging is useful for further characterization of the tumors.
  • The tumors are, in general, treated by surgical resection, but may require a little or at times more significant reconstruction.
  • Among these tumors, the myxomas are associated with a higher rate of recurrences.

  • Neoplasms of the heart are rare.
  • Among primary heart neoplasms the most often benign tumors are diagnosed--mostly myxomas, whereas the majority of malignant heart tumors are sarcomas.
  • The aim of this paper was to present heart tumors diagnosed in the cardiology department, their symptoms, used diagnostic tests and therapy and to show after therapy quality of life changes.
  • MATERIAL AND METHODS: There were 18 patients included to the study, whom during hospitalization in the cardiology department heart tumors were diagnosed.
  • There were 11 women and 7 men, aged from 33- to 76-years-old (mean 60,5 years).
  • RESULTS: Among 18 heart tumor patients in 12 cases primary benign tumors were diagnosed (66,6%), 1 patient had primary malignant tumor (5,5%), there were 3 cases of metastatic tumors (16,6%) and 2 patients with non-neoplasmic tumors--clots (11,1%).
  • From 18 subjects with heart tumor 3 patients died because of advanced stage of neoplasmic disease and presence of metastatic tumors in the heart.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Results of the study show, that heart tumors, regardless of development of diagnostic tests, are still diagnosed too late.
  • The study group follow-up proved, that early diagnosis and proper heart tumor treatment prevented complications and improved the quality of life.
  • It is worth to emphasize, that coronary angiogram in some cases allowed to diagnose coronary artery disease, to treat heart tumor and to perform coronary artery by-pass grafting simultaneously.

  • [Title] [Diagnosis and surgical management of primary cardiac neoplasms].
  • OBJECTIVE: To review and summarize the experience in diagnosis and surgical management of primary cardiac neoplasms.
  • METHODS: 112 patients with primary cardiac neoplasms were treated surgically from Jan.
  • Those tumors were grouped into three categories: myxomas (98), benign nonmyxomas (3), and malignant tumors (11).
  • Five of 11 malignant tumor patients underwent biopsy or palliative operation, the other patients received complete excision.
  • All patients' diagnosis was confirmed by echocardiography.
  • Two patients developed poor left ventricular function postoperatively and died at the third and the seventh postoperative day due to low cardiac output.
  • Fifty-five patients still had heart function in New York Heart Association class I and 21 in class II at the end of follow-up without any evidence of recurrance.
  • The follow-up results of benign nonmyxomas were similar to those of myxomas.
  • Mean follow-up of all survived malignant tumor patient was 6 months (range, 2 months to 12 months).
  • CONCLUSION: Surgical resection, whenever possible, is the first treatment choice for all kinds of primary cardiac tumors.
  • Surgical resection of myxoma and benign nonmyxoma can give excellent long-term results which may lead to eventual cure of myxoma and benign nonmyxoma.
  • For malignant tumor patient, surgical treatment is only palliative and to prolong the life of patients.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • Papillary fibroelastoma (PFE) is a benign heart tumor, the diagnosis of which is difficult.
  • Clinical manifestations of PFE are non-specific and scarce, and for this reason the tumor is often revealed during a heart surgery of an autopsy.
  • The histogenesis of the tumor is unclear; there are several theories of PFE origin (hemodynamic effects on the myocardium, viral theory, iatrogenic theory etc.
  • ) Macroscopically the tumor is small size, villous, whitish-grey, consists of a pedicle and villi of gely-like soft or dense-elastic consistence.
  • The mobility of the tumor and the fragmentation of its tissue lead to its main complications such as obstruction of cardiac cameras (in-flow and out-flow disorders) and embolic syndrome in various basins (the brain, coronary arteries, the eye, the kidneys, and the lungs).
  • The diagnosis of PFE is made using EchoCG, preferably transesophageal one.
  • Treatment of PFE is surgical and consists of tumor or cusp removal.
  • PFE should be differentiated from other benign and malignant heart tumors, infective endocarditis, heart echinococcosis, coronary artery disease, and cerebrovascular diseases.

  • [Title] Epidemiological and pathological characteristics of cardiac tumors: a clinical study of 242 cases.
  • The purpose of this study was to review the current clinical experience and pathological characteristics of cardiac tumors.
  • We retrospectively reviewed 33,108 consecutive cases of cardiac operations performed at our institution from October 1996 to March 2005.
  • There were 242 cases confirmed histologically as cardiac tumors.
  • Among them, 234 patients were diagnosed with primary heart tumors, revealing a prevalence of 0.71% among the corresponding period cardiac operations.
  • Of primary cardiac tumors, the incidence of benign neoplasm was much higher than malignant masses (90.6% vs. 9.4%, P<0.01).
  • The most common benign cardiac tumor was myxoma (86.8%).
  • Mesenchymoma and angiosarcoma were the most common primary malignant cardiac tumors.
  • The prevalence rates of cardiac tumors were quite different among age groups.
  • Benign non-myxoma tumors are more likely to occur in the ventricular (64.3%).
  • The primary malignant tumors have a tendency to be of multi-center origination (23%).
  • All the secondary cardiac tumors were located in the right side of the heart.
  • This study, using a relatively large sample, reveals the clinical incidences and pathological characteristics of various cardiac tumors in the Chinese population.

  • [Title] Lipotamous cardiac disorders: two unsual cases and a review of the literature.
  • Tumors involving the heart and surrounding cardiac structures may be benign or malignant and can be classified as primary versus secondary in etiology.
  • Primary cardiac tumors are rare lesions and the vast majority of these are benign neoplasms.
  • More commonly, masses that involve the cardiac structures are secondary in nature.
  • The focus of this manuscript will be those cardiac lesions characterized by a predominance of fatty cells.
  • We present two unusual cases of patients with lipomatous cardiac disorders with extreme imaging and review the current literature on this topic.

  • Cardiac myxoma is the most common benign heart tumor.
  • We report a case with multiple brain metastases, presumably due to tumor embolization.
  • It is important to perform transthoracic echocardiography at a very early stage to exclude structural heart disease in patients with signs of multiple brain metastases.
  • Though myxoma is a rare cause of cerebral embolism, detection of this tumor is relatively easy and surgical resection of myxoma is usually a permanent measure to prevent subsequent stroke.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Utility of cardiac CT and MRI for the diagnosis and preoperative assessment of cardiac paraganglioma.
  • BACKGROUND: Cardiac paragangliomas are rare cardiac tumors that are usually benign.
  • METHODS: We report a case of 39-year-old male who, during the work up of acute coronary syndrome with coronary angiography, cardiac computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), was found to have cardiac paraganglioma.
  • RESULTS: The tumor was intrapericardial, arising at the level of proximal left anterior descending artery.
  • The tumor was completely resected and the postoperative course was uneventful.
  • CONCLUSION: Cardiac CT and MRI are valuable in characterizing and preoperative planning of primary cardiac paragangliomas.

  • 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.

  • However, metastases are by far the most common cardiac neoplasms.
  • MRI overcomes the usual limitations of echocardiography and assesses more accurately changes in cardiac function.
  • Suggestive features of malignancy are right side location, extracardiac extension, inhomogeneity in signal intensity of the tumor and pericardial effusion.
  • The use of intravenous contrast material improves tumor characterization and depiction of tumor borders.
  • MRI also allows differentiation of tumor from other nontumoral masses such as intracavitary tumors or fibromuscular elements of the posterior wall of the right atrium.

  • METHODS: The results of surgical treatment of 494 patients with cardiac tumors hospitalized from 1975 to 2004, aged 43 +/- 16 (4 months to 78 years), 432 with myxoma, 27 with benign nonmyxoma, and 35 with malignant tumors, were analyzed.
  • RESULTS: Complete resection of malignant tumor was achieved in 10 cases (28.6%), and subtotal resection was achieved in 15 cases (42.9%).
  • Only biopsy was performed in 10 patients (28.6%) because of extensive metastasis of tumor.
  • Hospital death occurred in 11 myxoma patients (2.5%), and 3 malignant tumor patients (8.6%), and none of the benign non-myxoma tumor patients.
  • Follow-up for malignant tumors showed 18 (51.4%) late deaths because of recurrence or metastasis, occurring 2 months to 2 years after operation.
  • CONCLUSION: Excellent immediate and long-term operative results can be obtained for benign cardiac tumors.
  • However, for the patients with malignant tumors the survival chances are dismal.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • BACKGROUND: Primary cardiac neoplasms occur rarely and most of them are benign.
  • Malignant tumors including angiosarcoma are extremely rare and have a non specific clinical presentation and a poor prognosis.
  • Autopsy revealed the mass of the right atrium, which was identified on histological examination as primary cardiac angiosarcoma.
  • CONCLUSION: This case highlights the difficulties both in early diagnosis and in the management of patients with cardiac angiosarcoma.

  • Cardiac myxoma is the most common benign heart tumor.
  • Cardiac myxoma can be a sporadic lesion (93% of cases) and usually occurs in women over 30 years.
  • Complete surgical removal of the myxoma and its cardiac attachment is usually curative.
  • The frequency of recurrences in cardiac myxomas varies between 3% for sporadic cases and 22% for cases of Carney complex.
  • Recurrence has been related to incomplete excision, multifocality, and embolism of tumor fragments.
  • We report a case with multiple brain metastases presumably due to tumor embolization from previously operated cardiac myxoma.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • CONTEXT: Primary cardiac tumors are rare and the great majority are benign neoplasms.
  • Mass-forming reactive and pseudoneoplastic growths are less common, but recognizing and distinguishing these lesions from the neoplasms they resemble is critical to appropriate patient care.
  • OBJECTIVE: The general clinical, imaging, gross pathologic, and histologic features of 5 important pseudoneoplasms (inflammatory myofibroblastic tumor, hamartoma of mature cardiac myocytes, mesothelial/monocytic cardiac excrescences, calcified amorphous tumor, and lipomatous hypertrophy of the atrial septum) are discussed, with an emphasis on features differentiating them from other benign and malignant tumors.

  • Although CPFs are rare and benign tumors, they may result in life-threatening complications.
  • Early diagnosis of this condition is important, since it represents a surgically correctable cause of systemic embolism, myocardial infarction, stroke, acute valve dysfunction, and sudden cardiac death.
  • This review summarizes the significance and clinical approach for the diagnosis of this cardiac entity.
  • The differential diagnosis, histological characteristics of CPF and current treatment strategies are also discussed.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • Cardiac lipomas, which are benign nonmyxomatous neoplasms of the heart, are rare and among those least often encountered.
  • Because they normally cause no symptoms, diagnosis is often purely accidental.
  • Transthoracic and transesophageal echocardiograms were performed and showed a mass in the left side of the Ivs. During successful surgical excision of the mass, intraoperative histologic diagnosis showed the tumor was lipoma.
  • Our review of the English literature revealed that our case is only the seventh of removal of lipoma in the Ivs. The postoperative course was uneventful, and an echocardiogram taken 6 months after the operation showed no evidence of enlargement of the tumor tissue.

  • [Title] [A survey of heart tumors: clinical and echocardiographic approach].
  • Heart tumors can be primary in origin, can develop from direct extension of a neighboring tumor or they can be the manifestation of metastasis of a distant tumor.
  • Myxomas are the most frequently encountered primary benign cardiac tumors.
  • Primary malignant tumors of the heart are rare, and they are mostly sarcomatous in structure.
  • Secondary heart tumors constitute a wide spectrum, nevertheless they most frequently originate from lung cancer, breast cancer and hematological malignancies.
  • Heart tumors may involve myocardium, endocardium, epicardium, pericardium, or any combination of the aforementioned layers.
  • On the other hand, the usual site for metastasis to the heart is the pericardium.
  • These tumors do not have a well- established classification.
  • Clinical findings are usually non-specific and transient in nature and frequently present late in the disease process.
  • Surgery is the principal therapeutic option in benign tumors and when recurrences are not taken into account, they have favorable prognoses.
  • Since surgical resection is usually incomplete in malignant tumors, therapy must be individualized for each patient; even with adjuvant chemotherapy, postoperative survival is usually short.
  • Metastases to the heart are usually approached symptomatically except for exceptional cases.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Surgically treated primary cardiac tumors in early infancy and childhood.
  • OBJECTIVE: Primary heart tumors in childhood are rare and mostly benign.
  • MATERIALS AND METHODS: Between 1986 and 2003, 8 children (3 males and 5 females, age ranging 5 days to 6.7 years, median 78 days) with a clinical diagnosis of cardiac mass were treated with surgery.
  • Diagnosis was made by prenatal echocardiography in 3 patients and by 2-dimensional Doppler echocardiography in 5 patients.
  • RESULTS: Complete surgical excision of the cardiac mass was feasible in all but 1 patient who underwent orthotopic heart transplantation.
  • One patient died of cerebral malignancy 38 months after cardiac transplantation.
  • At a mean follow-up of 69.2 months (range 3-190 months), all the remaining patients are asymptomatic, with good ventricular function on 2-dimensional echocardiography and no signs of residual or recurrent tumor.
  • CONCLUSION: Surgical excision of obstructive cardiac tumors in childhood is safely feasible.
  • Heart transplantation may represent the only therapeutic option when the tumor extensively invades the ventricular walls.
  • Although 2-dimensional echocardiography remains a reliable diagnostic tool, a definite diagnosis of tumor histotype requires a thorough histopathologic characterization.

  • INTRODUCTION: Myxomas are the most common type of benign heart tumors.
  • The aim of this study was to correlate the clinical forms of presentation of cardiac myxoma and complementary laboratory results with the morphological features of the tumor.
  • MATERIALS AND METHODS: We reviewed retrospectively a total of 30 cardiac myxomas seen in 2 institutions after a period of 22 years.
  • In the same period 5 cardiac sarcomas were identified.
  • In one patient the IL-6 production by peripherals blood cells before and after surgical tumor resection was evaluated.
  • The most prevalent clinical manifestations were cardiac symptoms (73,3%), constitutional symptoms (30%) and embolisms (26,7%).
  • All cases were diagnosed by transthoracic echocardiography and the most frequent location of the tumor was the left atrium.
  • Larger-diameter myxomas were observed in older patients and correlated with cardiac symptoms, radiological and electrocardiographical abnormalities.
  • There was no evidence of recurrence of the disease.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Myxomas are the most frequent tumors of the heart.
  • The most common initial manifestations were cardiac symptoms.
  • Diagnosis was achieved in all patients by transthoracic echocardiography.
  • The size and macroscopic appearance of the tumor correlated with the age of the patients and some clinical symptoms and laboratory RESULTS: Surgical excision was a safe and effective procedure. (c) 2009 Elsevier España, S.L.

  • Symptoms are not characteristic and serious complications including stroke, myocardial infarction and even sudden death from arrhythmia may be the first signs of tumor.
  • The most common primary cardiac neoplasm is the benign myxoma and the most frequent primary malignant lesion is sarcoma.
  • Cardiac metastases from distant primary carcinomas are now frequently encountered.
  • Echocardiography and angiocardiography with or without coronary arteriography remain routine methods for evaluating cardiac neoplasms.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Surgical experience of cardiac tumors: early and late results.
  • PURPOSE: Cardiac tumors include benign and malignant neoplasms that arise within the cardiac chambers or myocardium.
  • This study summarizes our surgical experiences with cardiac tumors.
  • METHODS: Between 1975 and 2003, 51 patients with cardiac tumors were surgically treated.
  • Forty-seven cardiac myxomas were excised in 46 patients with an average age of 51.7 +/- 18 years.
  • The preoperative symptoms included congestive heart failure (37%) and embolism (30%).
  • Benign nonmyxomatous tumors.
  • Three patients with a mean age of 26.3 +/- 19.0 years showed benign nonmyxomatous tumors.
  • Malignant tumors.
  • Two patients were diagnosed to have malignant tumors and although there was no perioperative death, both died postoperatively within 6 months.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Cardiac myxomas and nonmyxomatous benign cardiac tumors show excellent results after a surgical excision, with a low morbidity and mortality.
  • A surgical resection should thus be considered as a treatment option for patients with malignant tumors.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • A bulbar mass attached to mitral valve anterior leaflet was discovered in an echocardiography within detailed examination of ischemic heart disease accidentally.
  • We diagnosed him as ischemic heart disease and doubt of heart tumor.
  • We dissected the tumor together with one chorda tendineae of mitral valve, and a performed aorta - coronary bypass surgery.
  • We diagnosed the tumor as papillary fibroelastoma by pathological diagnosis.
  • Papillary fibroelastoma is extremely rare with 7-9% of benign tumor of heart primary.
  • The tumor is benign, but there is a problem to cause embolism.
  • Therefore, when we discovered papillary fibroelastoma, surgical resection of the tumor is the first-line therapy.
  • Papillary fibroelastoma is benign tumor, but the pathological characteristic is still unidentified.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Nonfunctioning benign cardiac pheochromocytoma.
  • PURPOSE: Nonfunctioning benign cardiac pheochromocytoma is one of the rarest tumors and only a few cases have been described before.
  • We present a rare case of nonfunctioning benign cardiac pheochromocytoma and a review of the literature with special emphasis on diagnosis and treatment.
  • METHODS: Different from the other cardiac pheochromocytomas, its symptoms and signs are so nonspecific that it is easy to make a misdiagnosis or missed diagnosis.
  • One patient with nonfunctioning benign cardiac pheochromocytoma was treated surgically and relevant cases data were collected.
  • Clinical features, diagnosis and treatment of pheochromocytoma were discussed.
  • The prognosis for patients of benign cardiac pheochromocytomas was excellent, but for those of malignant ones was very poor.
  • CONCLUSION: Reviewing the few reported cases, most nonfunctioning benign cardiac pheochromocytomas can be cured completely by operation with good prognosis.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] MR imaging of cardiac tumors.
  • Magnetic resonance (MR) imaging is an important tool in the evaluation of cardiac neoplasms.
  • Recent improvements in pulse sequences for cardiac MR imaging have led to superior image quality, with reduced motion artifact and improved signal-to-noise ratio and tissue contrast.
  • Although there is some overlap in the MR imaging appearances of cardiac tumors, particularly of primary malignancies, differences in characteristic locations and features should allow confident differentiation between benign and malignant tumors.
  • Indicators of malignancy at MR imaging are invasive behavior, involvement of the right side of the heart or the pericardium, tissue inhomogeneity, diameter greater than 5 cm, and enhancement after administration of gadolinium contrast material (as a result of higher tissue vascularity).
  • Concomitant pericardial or pleural effusions are rare in benign processes but occur in about 50% of cases of malignant tumors.
  • MR imaging offers improved resolution, a larger field of view, and superior soft-tissue contrast compared with those of echocardiography, suggesting that knowledge of the MR imaging features of cardiac neoplasms is important for accurate diagnosis and management.

MedlinePlus Health Information. consumer health - Blood Clots.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • The incidence of cardiac masses increased as echocardiography is becoming increasingly popular.
  • Benign tumors of the heart constitute about 72% of all primary cardiac neoplasms and hemangioma accounts for 5-10% of benign cardiac tumors.
  • Cardiac hemangiomas are generally asymptomatic and diagnosed incidentally during echocardiography or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).
  • With an initial diagnosis of left ventricular thrombus, the patient underwent cardiac MRI.
  • The mass was found compatible with cardiac hemangioma.
  • It was removed surgically and histopathologic evaluation identified a cardiac hemangioma.
  • As reports of cardiac hemangioma are extremely rare and cardiac masses are mostly thought to be thrombi or myxomas (being the most common primary cardiac tumor), such hemangioma cases warrant attention as possibility of hemangioma should also be kept in mind.

  • As a secondary neoplasia following radiotherapy, myxoma has only been reported once in the literature.
  • The close relation to the radiation field of the posterior fossa makes it highly suggestive that the myxoma developed as a secondary neoplasia induced by radiotherapy.
  • Treatment philosophy for this benign tumor entity is a completed resection of the lesion with regular follow-up MRI.

77. Ragland MM, Tak T: The role of echocardiography in diagnosing space-occupying lesions of the heart. Clin Med Res; 2006 Mar;4(1):22-32

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] The role of echocardiography in diagnosing space-occupying lesions of the heart.
  • In contrast to primary cardiac tumors, which are less frequent and mostly benign in nature, the majority of intracardiac tumors are metastatic lesions.
  • Cardiac ultrasound has evolved enormously since its emergence in the 1950s and is presently the modality of choice for imaging space-occupying lesions of the heart; it provides high quality, real-time images that are extremely valuable in the evaluation of cardiac masses.
  • Although transthoracic echocardiography is an excellent initial diagnostic technique to evaluate and diagnose cardiac masses, transesophageal echocardiography provides superior image resolution and better visualization of cardiac masses in patients with suboptimal transthoracic echocardiography studies.
  • Computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging are additional tools used for cardiac imaging and may provide useful information in addition to that obtained by echocardiography, especially when the images obtained by the latter are suboptimal.

  • [Title] Primary cardiac tumors.
  • Primary cardiac tumors are a rare entity compared to tumors that metastasize to the heart.
  • Patients with such tumors may be asymptomatic.
  • It is important for the clinician to have a high index of suspicion when evaluating a patient presenting with signs and systemic symptoms concerning possible malignancy, plus cardiac specific symptoms or complications.
  • These can include new onset dyspnea, congestive heart failure, arrhythmias or murmurs varying with body positions.
  • Imaging, particularly the use of echocardiography, remains the cornerstone of diagnosis, and may be combined with new imaging modalities of cardiac CT and MRI.
  • The aim of this paper is to describe the epidemiology and pathophysiology of the various benign and malignant primary cardiac tumors.

  • Primary tumors of the heart in infants and children are rare.
  • The types of heart tumors in pediatric age groups are generally different from those in adults.
  • Cardiac myxoma is by far the most common tumor in adults, but in infants and adolescents the prevalent tumor of the heart is rhabdomyoma.
  • Among benign cardiac tumors, cardiac hemangiomas are rare and often diagnosed post-mortem due to the lack of specific clinical symptoms and signs.
  • We report a case of sudden death due to cardiac hemangioma in an apparently healthy 15-year-old adolescent.
  • The autopsy revealed a cardiac hemangioma located at the apex of the heart; the histopathological examination showed the tumor was a mixed capillary and arteriolar hemangioma, a very rare type of primary tumor in adolescents.

  • [Title] Treatment strategies for pediatric patients with primary cardiac and pericardial tumors: a 30-year review.
  • This study reviewed different types of primary cardiac and mediastinal tumors in infants and children as well as their clinical presentation and management.
  • Histologic examination of the surgically resected tumors showed teratoma in four patients, rhabdomyoma in four patients, and hemangioma in two patients.
  • One patient died after resection of a malignant histiocytoma, and one patient required a tumor-related reoperation.
  • Freedom from tumor-related reoperation after 10 years was 91% +/- 8.7%.
  • Of the survivors, 85% were New York Heart Association (NYHA) class 1, and 100% had sinus rhythm.
  • Spontaneous tumor regression is common in rhabdomyoma and surgery, and is indicated only for symptomatic patients with hemodynamically significant intracardiac obstruction.
  • For all other benign primary cardiac tumors, complete resection usually can be accomplished with good results.
  • Patients with giant tumor masses compressing or infiltrating the heart frequently cannot undergo complete resection.
  • For these patients, restoration/preservation of sufficient heart function is the primary goal.
  • Malignant tumors are extremely rare in pediatric patients and have a very poor prognosis.

  • [Title] Mitral annular tumors: report of two cases in childhood.
  • Primary tumors of the mitral valve are extremely rare especially in the pediatric age group; only a few cases have been reported previously.
  • The clinical appearance of the tumor may mimic other pathological findings of heart structures or remain asymptomatic.
  • We describe two different benign primary cardiac tumors, which were hemangioma and myxoma originating from the anterior annulus of the mitral valve and presenting with an unusual clinical course in two children.
  • Both tumors were resected successfully with mitral valve conservation and there was no recurrence at 6-month and 1-year follow-ups.

  • [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.
  • 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.
  • Local recurrence occurred in 3/18 patients with malignant disease: 1 underwent successful repeat autotransplantation and 2 are receiving chemotherapy.
  • 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.

  • Cardiac hemangioma is an extremely rare, benign vascular tumor of the heart.
  • In contrast to myxoma, hemangioma rarely involves left atrial tissue in adults and little information about the tumor is available.
  • The tumor was removed from the left atrium with all the left appendage under cardiopulmonary bypass.
  • Among the five described cases, this case was the only one in which the tumor arose from the appendage and grew into the pericardial cavity with resultant paroxystic atrial fibrillation.

  • [Title] [Cardiac tumors].
  • [Transliterated title] I tumori cardiaci.
  • Primary cardiac tumors are rare and their subdivision often difficult because of their unknown origin.
  • In the most recent classification, cardiac tumors are divided into benign (about 75% and malignant neoplasms in relationship to their tissue differentiation (rhabdomyoma, haemangioma, etc.) or uncertain aetiology (myxoma, papillary fibroelastoma).
  • Primary malignant tumors are maimly represented by sarcomas.
  • The most frequent tumor is cardiac myxoma, which by itself represents about 50% of all primary cardiac neoplasms.
  • Although non-invasive technologies as trans-esophageal ecocardiography allow the detection and exact localization of cardiac mass, clinical diagnosis is often tardive.
  • This is due, besides the intrinsic rarity, to two main factors: first, the tumor is often asymptomatic (incidental autopic finding) or; alternatively, it may show aspecif symptoms mimicking heart failure or other pathologies.
  • In this article, clinicopathological features of main primary cardiac tumors are presented.
  • Investigation of the histogenesis of some of these neoplasms is still a primary field of research.

  • [Title] Characterization and management of cardiac tumors.
  • Cardiac tumors are infrequent clinical entities with an autopsy frequency ranging from 0.001% to 0.030%.
  • The occurrence of metastatic cardiac tumors has been reported a 100-fold more commonly than primary lesions.
  • Three quarters of primary cardiac tumors are benign; approximately half of these are cardiac myxomas, and the rest are lipomas, papillary fibroelastomas, and rhabdomyomas.
  • Among malignant primary cardiac tumors, the most reported are those histopathologically considered as undifferentiated, followed by angiosarcomas and leiomyosarcomas.
  • Traditionally, cardiac tumors have been identified as curious autopsy findings resulting in a literature paucity of large clinical series, therefore, providing knowledge mostly based on case report collection.
  • However, recent technological advances in noninvasive imaging modalities such as echocardiography and cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) have resulted in a rapid acquisition of real-time heart images with high spatial and temporal resolution and an excellent tissue characterization of the tumor.
  • This consequent earlier, more frequent, and more complete assessment of cardiac tumors before significant symptoms develop has challenged cardiologists, cardiac anesthesiologists, and surgeons to create a tailored referral pattern and approach.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • The prevalence of primary cardiac tumour ranges from 0.0017-0.28% and papillary fibroelastoma is rare but not uncommon benign cardiac neoplasm.
  • The clinical presentation of these tumours varies from asymptomatic to severe ischaemic or embolic complications.
  • The differential diagnosis considered was a thrombus, myxoma, Lambl's excrescence and infective vegetation.
  • The surgical management included a prompt resection of the tumour on cardiopulmonary bypass avoiding injury to the aortic valve.
  • A review of the literature suggests that the cardiac papillary fibroelastoma is a rare but potentially treatable cause of embolic stroke and other fatal complications, therefore, a strong suspicion; appropriate use of imaging modality, preoperative anticoagulation and urgent surgical resection is warranted.
  • Also, possibility of this diagnosis should be kept in mind while managing cardiac or valvular tumours.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • Papillary fibroelastomas are the most common benign neoplasms of the cardiac valvular structures, and they are being recognized more frequently because of higher-resolution imaging technology.
  • Surgical resection should be offered to all patients who have symptoms and to asymptomatic patients who have pedunculated lesions or tumors larger than 1 cm in diameter.
  • The timely recognition of this asymptomatic tumor enabled a modified operative approach: the patient underwent myocardial revascularization with concomitant valve-sparing resection of the tumor.
  • We discuss the pathophysiology of fibroelastomas of the aortic valve and operative approaches to the management of these tumors when they are discovered incidentally.

  • OBJECTIVE: To summarize the clinical characterizations and outcome of surgical treatment of primary heart neoplasms.
  • METHODS: The clinical data of cardiac neoplasms were analyzed retrospectively in 232 patients.
  • There were 14 malignant tumors (6.0%) and 218 benign tumors (94.0%), of which 200 were left atrial myxomas (86.2%).
  • Two hundred and twenty-three out of 230 patients underwent complete removal of the tumors, remaining 2 patients had partial removal.
  • One hundred and eighty-five cases were followed up for 6 months to 24 years, of which 10 malignant tumors died in 1 year and 1 malignant case recurred after 4 months.
  • Of 174 benign neoplasms, 1 case recurred and 10 cases were dead, remaining were cured.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Left atrial myxomas are most commonly seen in patients with primary heart neoplasms.
  • It is suggested that the patients should accept surgical treatment as soon as possible once the diagnosis is confirmed.
  • Surgical treatment is effective for the benign cardiac tumors.
  • Prognosis is poor in patients with malignant cardiac tumors.

  • BACKGROUND: Cardiac rhabdomyoma, a benign smooth muscle hamartoma, is the commonest heart tumor encountered in children.
  • Arrhythmias and conduction disorders have been described with these tumors, although most electrocardiographic abnormalities will resolve over time, concomitant with the resolution of the tumor.
  • CASE REPORT: The case of a child, diagnosed with cardiac rhabdomyomas in fetal life, is reported in whom the tumors regressed in size over a four-year period whilst displaying a spectrum of conduction disturbances.
  • He finally developed potentially lethal complete heart block.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Cardiac rhabdomyomas may be asymptomatic, cause hemodynamic compromise, or be associated with rhythm disorders.

  • [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.

  • Of the benign tumors, myxomas are the most common.
  • PFE is a relatively rare benign tumor of the heart.
  • It occurs commonly on cardiac valves and is often an incidental finding.
  • It is important to be aware of this entity because even though it is benign it may present with life-threatening complications, which are well documented in literature.
  • Surgery is the treatment of choice for these tumors.
  • We present the case of a 30-year-old male in whom PFE was an incidental finding.

  • Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and, since its introduction, multislice spiral computed tomography allow for detailed delineation of intra and pericardiac tumors, their extent, and their influence on cardiac function.
  • Primary benign and malignant cardiac tumors have several characteristic features in MR imaging.
  • Assessment of such features may narrow down the differential diagnosis or even allow for reliable diagnosis in selected cases.
  • This article provides an overview of examination protocols of MRI and CT for cases in which a cardiac mass is suspected and describes the appearance of primary and secondary cardiac masses as well as intracavitary thrombi.
