  • Metastatic melanoma shows a propensity for cardiac involvement, but cardiac involvement by melanoma is rarely identified clinically due to a paucity of cardiac symptoms.
  • Six cases involved the right side of the heart and one involved the left ventricle.
  • Five of the seven patients had a history of malignant melanoma, but none had a history of metastases when they presented with cardiac symptoms.
  • In four cases, the history of primary melanoma was remote, occurring 7, 9, 13, and 28 years prior to the discovery of their cardiac mass.
  • One patient had a history of a benign melanocytic lesion biopsied 2 years before, but retrospective review showed malignant melanoma.
  • Neoplastic involvement of the heart should be considered in patients with cardiac symptoms when a documented malignancy exists, no matter how remote.

  • [Title] Evaluation of cardiac masses: the role of cardiovascular magnetic resonance.
  • Evaluation of known or suspected cardiac masses is a frequent and expanding indication for referral to the cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) laboratory.
  • However, echocardiography suffers from several well-described limitations: restricted field of view; incomplete assessment of an invading cardiac mass due to an unfavourable patient body habitus; and limited ability to perform tissue characterization.
  • First, it is able to help discriminate between a true cardiac mass and a pseudomass.
  • Second, tissue characterization by CMR can assist in generating a differential diagnosis, and can distinguish a cardiac neoplasm (which generally will require excision) from other conditions, such as intracardiac thrombus, lipomatous hypertrophy or benign lipomas (all of which generally do not require excision).
  • Third, even when the etiology of a mass is known, CMR can provide useful information as to the extent of invasion into cardiac, as well as extracardiac structures, and associated findings.

  • [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.
  • 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.

  • [Title] Primary cardiac tumors in children: a 16-year experience.
  • INTRODUCTION: Primary cardiac tumors are rare in children.
  • The majority are benign and noninvasive, although they may have significant hemodynamic consequences depending on their location.
  • OBJECTIVES: To assess the presentation and outcome of patients with cardiac tumors followed by the Department of Pediatric Cardiology of Hospital de Santa Cruz.
  • METHODS: A retrospective analysis was performed of the clinical records of patients diagnosed with primary cardiac tumors between January 1992 and March 2008.
  • RESULTS: Eleven children with a diagnosis of primary cardiac tumor were identified, three of them detected antenatally.
  • In the remaining cases, median age at diagnosis was 27.5 months, ranging from two days to 13 years.
  • In three cases diagnosis was made during fetal echocardiography, and in the others by transthoracic echocardiogram.
  • In six patients magnetic resonance imaging was used to confirm the diagnosis.
  • All were benign (eight rhabdomyomas, one papillary fibroelastoma, one myxoma and one pericardial tumor with histological features of Castleman disease).
  • Six patients were asymptomatic at the time of diagnosis; two cases presented with arrhythmias; one with heart failure; and two were diagnosed following stroke, one with right hemiparesis, and the other with paresthesias of the lip and fingers of the right hand.
  • In four cases there was total or partial tumor regression.
  • Surgery was performed in four patients, due to tumor location and/ or significant left ventricular outflow tract obstruction.
  • FINAL REMARKS: Primary cardiac tumors are uncommon in children.

  • [Title] Left heart sarcomas.
  • Primary tumors of the heart are uncommon, with roughly 75% benign and 25% malignant.
  • Most of the malignant tumors are sarcomas and historically have had a very poor prognosis.
  • These tumors tend to occur in young patients with a mean age of 40 years.
  • Making a diagnosis of cardiac sarcoma can be difficult due to its rarity and the nature of the symptoms.
  • For left heart sarcomas, almost all patients are symptomatic by the time the diagnosis has been made.
  • Symptoms are dependent on the location and the extent of the tumor and are not related to tumor histology; similarly, histologic cell type has not been found to be related to prognosis in most studies.
  • We therefore previously proposed a classification system for primary cardiac sarcoma based on anatomic location, dividing primary cardiac sarcoma into right heart, pulmonary artery and left heart sarcomas.
  • Left heart sarcoma presents a technical anatomic challenge: the left atrium, being the posterior heart chamber, allows somewhat limited access using routine surgical approaches.
  • Our review of the published literature showed frequent local recurrence and poor long-term survival in left heart sarcomas.
  • Our hypothesis was that the left atrium had limited anatomic accessibility for large complex resections and reconstructions, and this led cardiac surgeons to do a more limited tumor removal with an increased chance of local recurrence and a detrimental effect on survival.
  • To address this technical challenge, our group introduced the surgical technique of cardiac explantation, ex vivo tumor resection, cardiac reconstruction, and subsequent cardiac reimplantation or cardiac autotransplantation for left heart sarcoma in an attempt to improve the completeness of local resection, decrease local recurrence, and extend patient survival.
  • This review discusses the approach of the cardiac sarcoma group at the Methodist DeBakey Heart & Vascular Center and the MD Anderson Cancer Center to the diagnosis and treatment of left heart sarcoma, as well as our current patient outcomes.

  • [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.

  • Papillary fibroelastoma (PFE) is a rare and benign cardiac tumor typically found on the valvular endocardium.
  • In most cases, PFE is identified incidentally on echocardiography or during cardiac surgery.
  • Despite the benign histology of PFE, lethal embolic events such as stroke, myocardial infarction, and pulmonary embolism are reported in some cases.
  • To prevent such complications, tumor identification and surgical excision are essential.

  • BACKGROUND: Surgical management of concomitant pulmonary and cardiac disease remains controversial.
  • METHODS: We performed a retrospective review of 27 patients who underwent pulmonary and cardiac surgery, from 2000 to 2008, in two institutions.
  • RESULTS: 24 men and 3 women, with a mean age of 68 years, were treated.
  • Cardiac procedures consisted of coronary artery bypass grafting (n = 22), heart valve surgery (n = 3) or a combination of both (n = 2).
  • Histology of the pulmonary lesion was squamous cell carcinoma in 14 patients (52%), adenocarcinoma in 10 (37%), large cell neuroendocrine tumour in 1 (3%) and typical carcinoid in 1 (3%).
  • A benign lesion was found in 1 patient (3%).
  • CONCLUSIONS: Simultaneous procedures for cardiac disease and pulmonary lesions can be performed without life-threatening morbidity and no in-hospital mortality.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • ARC (Apoptosis Repressor with CARD (caspase recruitment domain)) is an unusual inhibitor of apoptosis in that it antagonizes both the extrinsic (death receptor) and intrinsic (mitochondrial/ER) apoptosis pathways.
  • ARC is expressed predominantly in terminally differentiated cells such as cardiac and skeletal myocytes and neurons.
  • Recently, however, the abundance of ARC was noted to be markedly increased in the epithelium of primary human breast cancers compared with benign breast tissue and to confer chemo- and radiation-resistance.
  • Whether the induction of ARC is specific to breast cancer or a more general feature of neoplasia remains unknown.
  • In this study, we assessed the abundance and subcellular localization of ARC in 21 human colon cancer cell lines and in 44 primary human colon adenocarcinomas and adjacent benign colonic tissue.
  • Levels of ARC in the cytoplasm were increased in well, moderately, and poorly differentiated cancers compared with benign tissue, while levels of nuclear ARC were increased only in moderately differentiated tumors.

  • 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.

  • [Title] Primary cardiac valve tumors.
  • To assess the prevalence, characteristics, and outcome of surgical treatment of primary cardiac valve tumors in a single center, we reviewed our experience in 6 women and 1 man, aged 49 to 76 years (mean, 64.7 years) who presented between 1999 and 2006.
  • In one patient, the diagnosis of cardiac valve tumor was made incidentally on transesophageal echocardiography during aortocoronary bypass surgery.
  • The others had clinical symptoms: angina or myocardial infarction in 3, congestive heart failure in 2, dyspnea and cerebrovascular ischemia in 1 patient each.
  • Four of the 7 tumors were benign, and 3 were malignant.
  • Two patients with malignant tumors were considered unsuitable for adjuvant therapy by the oncologist; both died during follow-up from local tumor recurrence.
  • Excellent early and midterm surgical results can be obtained in patients with benign cardiac valve tumors, but the prognosis for those with a malignant tumor is poor.

  • [Title] Considerations for prenatal counselling of patients with cardiac rhabdomyomas based on their cardiac and neurologic outcomes.
  • Cardiac rhabdomyomas are benign cardiac tumours with few cardiac complications, but with a known association to tuberous sclerosis that affects the neurologic outcome of the patients.
  • We have analysed the long-term cardiac and neurological outcomes of patients with cardiac rhabdomyomas in order to allow comprehensive prenatal counselling, basing our findings on the records of all patients seen prenatally and postnatally with an echocardiographic diagnosis of cardiac rhabdomyoma encountered from August, 1982, to September, 2007.
  • We analysed factors such as the number and the location of the tumours to establish their association with a diagnosis of tuberous sclerosis, predicting the cardiac and neurologic outcomes for the patients.Cardiac complications include arrhythmias, obstruction of the ventricular outflow tracts, and secondary cardiogenic shock.
  • No specific dimension or location of the cardiac rhabdomyomas predicted the disturbances of rhythm.The importance of the diagnosis of tuberous sclerosis is exemplified by the neurodevelopmental complications, with four-fifths of the patients showing epilepsy, and two-thirds having delayed development.
  • The presence of multiple cardiac tumours suggested a higher risk of being affected by tuberous sclerosis.
  • The tumours generally regress after birth, and cardiac-related problems are rare after the perinatal period.

  • [Title] [Diagnostic value of echocardiography for cardiac tumors in infancy and childhood].
  • OBJECTIVE: The present study was designed to evaluate the clinical manifestations, surgical findings, pathologic types and treatment of cardiac tumor and to analyze the echocardiographic characteristics of the cases.
  • METHODS: Records of 19 patients with cardiac tumors confirmed by operations and pathology at Fuwai Cardiovascular Hospital in Beijing, China between Jan, 1983 and Dec, 2003 were reviewed.
  • The surgical findings revealed that 57.9% (11 cases) of cardiac tumors were found in left heart, 36.8% (7 cases) in right heart, 5.3% (1 case) in two ventricles.
  • The pathological study revealed that 17 cases (89.5%) were diagnosed as primary cardiac benign tumors including myxoma in 10 cases (52.6%), rhabdomyoma in 4 cases (21.1%), fibroma in 2 cases (10.5%) and lipoma in 1 case (5.3%).
  • Two cases were diagnosed (10.5%) as cardiac malignant tumors including a primary cardiac rhabdomyosarcoma and a metastatic epithelioid sarcoma.
  • By using echocardiography 11 cases were diagnosed as myxomas and rhabdomyoma (11/19, 57.9%), 8 cases were diagnosed as space occupying lesions of the heart or myxoma (8/19, 42.1%).
  • CONCLUSIONS: Myxomas are the most common heart tumors seen in infancy and childhood, followed in frequency by rhabdomyomas, fibromas and lipomas.

  • [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.

  • [Title] Cardiac abnormalities associated with pheochromocytoma and other adrenal tumors.
  • OBJECTIVE: To study the specific cardiac abnormalities associated with pheochromocytoma and to suggest a strategy for evaluating cardiac function in patients with pheochromocytoma.
  • METHODS: In this case-control study, we reviewed pathology records of patients seen at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center between 1997 and 2007; patients with adrenal or extra-adrenal pheochromocytoma and those with nonfunctioning benign or malignant adrenal tumors were identified.
  • Clinical history, imaging, pathology, biochemical test results, electrocardiographic findings, and echocardiographic findings were compared between patients with pheochromocytoma and patients with nonfunctioning adrenal tumors.
  • RESULTS: The charts of 22 patients with pheochromocytoma and 35 patients with nonfunctioning adrenal tumors were included.
  • QTc was prolonged in patients with pheochromocytoma compared with control patients (448.3 +/- 9.7 ms vs 424.7 +/- 4.5 ms, respectively; P = .02) and was correlated with levels of norepinephrine and normetanephrine, but not with levels of epinephrine and metanephrine or tumor size.

  • INTRODUCTION: Primary cardiac tumours are very rare in the paediatric age, their incidence varies from 0.0017 % to 0.28 %.
  • More than 90 % are benign in nature.
  • MATERIAL AND METHODS: We performed a retrospective analysis of medical records with a diagnosis of primary cardiac tumor between March 1977 and March 2007, finding a total of 27 patients.
  • RESULTS: The age of initial diagnosis is more prevalent in the neonatal period, beginning with the discovery of a heart murmur (11 cases).
  • According to the echocardiography characteristics there were diagnosed 20 rhabdomyomas, 2 fibromas, 2 pericardial teratomas and 3 non classifiable tumours.
  • Echocardiography, cardiac catheterization was also performed in 3 cases and angioresonance in 5 cases.
  • During their evolution, episodes of arrhythmias were observed in 11 patients, 5 patients required some sort of surgical procedure, which confirmed the histopathology diagnosis.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Firstly, there is shown to be a low prevalence of this disorder in children.
  • Rhabdomyoma is the most common primary cardiac tumour in our study and it was associated in 75 % of cases with tuberous sclerosis.
  • The diagnosis is more common in the early neonatal period after auscultation of a cardiac murmur and echocardiography, the diagnostic technique of choice, other imaging techniques, such as angioMRI not being of much for diagnosis in children.
  • The course is benign in most tumours, rhabdomyomas tending to regress spontaneously.
  • One option is the surgical cardiac transplant in non-resectable life-threatening tumours.

  • [Title] Pathological study of primary cardiac and pericardial tumours in a specialist UK Centre: surgical and autopsy series.
  • BACKGROUND: Primary cardiac and pericardial tumours are rare with a prevalence of between 0.001% and 0.3%.
  • Modern advances in cardiac imaging have increased the number of patients identified with a primary cardiac tumour in its early stage and also improved prognosis.
  • At the Royal Brompton Hospital, London, we did a retrospective study to investigate the pathological features of primary cardiac and pericardial tumours and compared our findings to other cardiac centres.
  • METHODS: All pathologic records at the Royal Brompton Hospital between 1990 and 2008 were reviewed to identify patients with a confirmed diagnosis of primary cardiac tumours.
  • A total of 94 patients with a histological diagnosis of primary cardiac and pericardial tumours were identified and formed the study population.
  • RESULTS: The majority (n=67, 71.3%) of cases were benign cardiac tumours.
  • Among cases with primary malignant tumours (n=27, 28.7%), unclassified sarcoma (n=11), leiomyosarcoma (n=5), and lymphoma (n=4) were the most common histologic types.
  • CONCLUSION: This study, primarily from an adult setting (n=78, 83%) demonstrates a large spectrum of cardiac tumours seen in recent cardiologic practice.
  • Myxoma is still the most common tumour but more fibroelastomas are being diagnosed due to increased imaging.

  • [Title] Fifty years of paediatric malignant bone tumours in the West Midlands, UK, 1957-2006: incidence, treatment and outcome.
  • Malignant bone tumours in the paediatric age group (0-14 years) are uncommon; various aetiological theories exist and few reports of incidence, age and sex distributions have been published.
  • We examined the incidence of childhood malignant bone tumours in one large single region of the UK over an extended period of 50 years.
  • The West Midlands specialist regional children's tumour registry holds data on all malignancies and benign brain tumours in children under 15 years in the West Midlands region, which has a population of around 1 million children.
  • During the period 1957-2006, 259 cases of malignant paediatric bone tumours were diagnosed.
  • There were 153 osteosarcomas, 78 Ewing sarcomas and 28 other primary bone tumours.
  • Sixty-eight per cent of tumours were in patients over 10 years, whereas the incidence in patients under 10 years showed a non-significant increase.
  • This is a large study giving an overview of malignant bone tumours in the childhood population of a single region over an extended period, showing results consistent with national reports.
  • It also examines late effects, which were mostly mobility/orthopaedic, although almost one-fifth of patients had cardiac problems and five went on to develop second malignancies.

  • [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.

  • (1)H-MRS was performed on 12 women (age range 45-72) with ovarian cancer of FIGO stage 3 or above using a 3T MRI system with an 8-channel cardiac receive coil.
  • Respiratory-triggered PRESS-localized spectra (TE = 144 ms) were obtained separately from an ovarian mass and from metastatic disease.
  • Choline was detected in 10/12 primary tumors and 5/11 metastatic lesions (range 2.0-16.6 mM).
  • Glycine was observed in one benign lesion. (1)H-MRS can be used to quantify choline in primary and metastatic masses in ovarian cancer, but the moderately high rate of failure to detect choline necessitates careful recording of data quality parameters to discriminate true from false negatives.

  • [Title] The lentiginoses: cutaneous markers of systemic disease and a window to new aspects of tumourigenesis.
  • Familial lentiginosis syndromes cover a wide phenotypic spectrum ranging from a benign inherited predisposition to develop cutaneous lentigines unassociated with systemic disease, to associations with several syndromes carrying increased risk of formation of hamartomas, hyperplasias, and other neoplasms.
  • The presence of lentigines in these diseases caused by diverse molecular defects is probably more than an associated clinical feature and likely reflects cross talk and convergence of signalling pathways of central importance to embryogenesis, neural crest differentiation, and end-organ growth and function of a broad range of tissues including those of the endocrine, reproductive, gastrointestinal, cardiac, and integument systems.

  • Tuberous sclerosis complex (TSC) is an autosomal-dominant phakomatosis that can result in cardiac and central nervous system lesions and may adversely impact fetal and maternal health.
  • The fetus, also affected with TSC, was diagnosed with a cardiac rhabdomyoma on ultrasound at 24 gestational weeks and intracranial tubers on fetal magnetic resonance imaging at 26 gestational weeks.
  • We identified 36 additional cases of fetal TSC with cardiac rhabdomyoma diagnosed prenatally.
  • Although benign histologically, cardiac rhabdomyomas can result in fetal morbidity and mortality.

  • [Title] Pentalogy of Fallot and cardiac paraganglioma: a case report.
  • Primary cardiac tumors are rare.
  • Of these the majorities are benign and about 75% are atrial myxomas.
  • One of the rarest tumors affecting the heart is a cardiac paraganglioma.
  • This patient also had coexistent Pentalogy of Fallots along with transposition of pulmonary trunk to the left ventricle, a very rare congenital cyanotic heart disease.
  • Chronic hypoxia due to congenital cyanotic heart disease is supposed to be the cause of development of paraganglioma in heart in these patients.

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

  • Primary heart tumors are uncommon in children.
  • The majority of them are benign, with only 10% malignant.
  • Among malignant cardiac tumors, sarcoma (rhabdomyosarcoma, angiosarcoma, synovial sarcoma) and lymphoma (Burkitt's lymphoma, large B-cell lymphoma, lymphoblastic lymphoma) predominate.
  • There are few published pediatric series on malignant primary cardiac tumors.
  • We report here 3 observations of primary malignant cardiac tumors, 2 cases of sarcoma (angiosarcoma and synovial sarcoma) and 1 case of Burkitt's lymphoma.
  • A precise pathological diagnosis is necessary for the proper management of these patients.
  • Therefore, the prognosis of cardiac sarcoma remains poor.
  • For primary cardiac lymphoma, management should not be different from lymphoma in other locations.

  • [Title] Malignancy after heart transplantation: analysis of 24-year experience at a single center.
  • BACKGROUND: Malignancy is an important complication after heart transplantation.
  • METHODS: Data for 835 patients who underwent heart transplantation between 1979 and 2002 and survived beyond one month were retrospectively evaluated for posttransplant skin cancer, solid organ tumors, and lymphoma.
  • Skin cancer, solid organ tumors, and lymphoma represented 49%, 27%, and 24% of the malignancies, respectively.
  • Mean patient age at transplantation for patients developing skin cancer, solid organ tumor, and lymphoma were 50 years, 51 years, and 46 years, respectively (p = 0.024).
  • Median survival after diagnosis of skin cancer, solid organ tumor, and lymphoma were 5.0 years, 0.3 years, and 0.7 years, respectively (p < 0.001).
  • Older age at transplantation, smoking history, and more episodes of treated rejection were related to increased incidence of nonlymphoid malignancy incidence after heart transplantation, whereas no variable was associated with lymphoid malignancy.
  • Skin cancers have a benign course, while solid organ malignancies and lymphomas carry an unfavorable prognosis.

  • [Title] A mouse model for the Carney complex tumor syndrome develops neoplasia in cyclic AMP-responsive tissues.
  • Carney complex is an autosomal dominant neoplasia syndrome characterized by spotty skin pigmentation, myxomatosis, endocrine tumors, and schwannomas.
  • To better understand the mechanism by which PRKAR1A mutations cause disease, we have developed conventional and conditional null alleles for Prkar1a in the mouse.
  • Although genotype-specific cardiac and adrenal lesions were not seen, benign and malignant thyroid neoplasias were observed in older mice.
  • This spectrum of tumors overlaps that seen in Carney complex patients, confirming the validity of this mouse model.
  • Genetic analysis indicated that allelic loss occurred in a subset of tumor cells, suggesting that complete loss of Prkar1a plays a key role in tumorigenesis.
  • These observations confirm the identity of PRKAR1A as a tumor suppressor gene with specific importance to cyclic AMP-responsive tissues and suggest that these mice may be valuable tools not only for understanding endocrine tumorigenesis but also for understanding inherited predispositions for schwannoma formation.

  • [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.
  • 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.

  • [Title] Visceral pericardial hemangioma: unusual location for a rare cardiac tumor.
  • Coronary angiography revealed no significant coronary disease, but suggested a mass posterior to the heart.
  • Magnetic resonance imaging confirmed the presence of the tumor, without extension into adjacent cardiac chambers or pericardial effusion.
  • At operation, a 4.6- x 3.0-cm tumor attached to the visceral pericardium was excised.
  • Pathologic section resulted in a diagnosis of hemangioma.
  • Hemangiomas account for 2% to 5% of benign cardiac tumors, arising from the cardiac ventricles, atria, valves, and, rarely, the epicardium/pericardium.

  • METHODS: Subsequent investigations revealed aortic valve tumor.
  • The patient had history of hypertension, coronary artery disease, atrial fibrillation, hyperlipidemia, and hyperthyroidism.
  • RESULTS: The tumor was excised, and aortic valve replacement was done using partial sternotomy (minimally invasive).
  • DISCUSSION: Although lipomas have benign pathology and slow growth, they warrant surgical excision in view of possible fatal complications.

  • BACKGROUND: We conducted a study to determine whether dutasteride reduces the risk of incident prostate cancer, as detected on biopsy, among men who are at increased risk for the disease.
  • Men were eligible for inclusion in the study if they were 50 to 75 years of age, had a prostate-specific antigen (PSA) level of 2.5 to 10.0 ng per milliliter, and had had one negative prostate biopsy (6 to 12 cores) within 6 months before enrollment.
  • RESULTS: Among 6729 men who underwent a biopsy or prostate surgery, cancer was detected in 659 of the 3305 men in the dutasteride group, as compared with 858 of the 3424 men in the placebo group, representing a relative risk reduction with dutasteride of 22.8% (95% confidence interval, 15.2 to 29.8) over the 4-year study period (P<0.001).
  • Overall, in years 1 through 4, among the 6706 men who underwent a needle biopsy, there were 220 tumors with a Gleason score of 7 to 10 among 3299 men in the dutasteride group and 233 among 3407 men in the placebo group (P=0.81).
  • During years 3 and 4, there were 12 tumors with a Gleason score of 8 to 10 in the dutasteride group, as compared with only 1 in the placebo group (P=0.003).
  • The incidence of adverse events was similar to that in studies of dutasteride therapy for benign prostatic hyperplasia, except that in our study, as compared with previous studies, the relative incidence of the composite category of cardiac failure was higher in the dutasteride group than in the placebo group (0.7% [30 men] vs. 0.4% [16 men], P=0.03).
  • CONCLUSIONS: Over the course of the 4-year study period, dutasteride reduced the risk of incident prostate cancer detected on biopsy and improved the outcomes related to benign prostatic hyperplasia. (ClinicalTrials.gov number, NCT00056407. )

  • 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.

  • [Title] Imminent fetal cardiac tamponade by right atrial hemangioma.
  • A fetus presented with a large pericardial effusion caused by a right atrial transmural tumor.
  • Correct prenatal diagnosis by use of targeted fetal echocardiography indicated that treatment was not required until the gestational age of 36 weeks.
  • At that time, cesarean section was performed because early signs of imminent cardiac tamponade developed ("swinging heart").
  • Histologically, the tumor was a benign capillary hemangioma.

  • Papillary fibroelastoma (PFE) is a benign cardiac tumor that has the potential to cause life-threatening embolic events.
  • Surgical excision of the tumor is recommended for all patients who develop symptoms, but the treatment of asymptomatic patients with an echocardiographically identified PFE is still controversial.
  • Our case report describes a 63-year-old patient with the incidental finding of a probable left ventricular PFE.
  • The patient was not a candidate for surgical excision of this tumor because of comorbidities and refusal to undergo surgery.
  • During this follow-up period, the patient developed no symptoms or complications attributable to the cardiac tumor.

  • [Title] Cardiac MRI is complementary to echocardiography in the assessment of cardiac masses.
  • Despite the fact that the incidence of cardiac tumors is low, the prompt evaluation and adequate intervention of these is highly important.
  • Although most tumors of the heart are considered histologically benign, there are significant risks associated with these "benign" tumors.
  • With the advent of noninvasive imaging modalities--traditionally echocardiography; but more recently using cross-sectional imaging with cardiac computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging--cardiac tumors can be optimally assessed providing a greater opportunity for curative treatments by cardiothoracic surgery.

  • BACKGROUND: Primary cardiac tumours are rare.
  • Nearly 70% of primary cardiac tumours are benign, the majority of which are represented by myxomas.
  • The most frequent primary cardiac neoplasm is the angiosarcoma that represents 31% of primary cardiac malignant.
  • We report a particular clinical case of cardiac angiosarcoma, its light and transmission electron microscopic aspects and a review of the recent literature.
  • METHODS: A 52 years old man died for a severe right ventricle filling deficit caused by an intracavitary tumour originated from the right atrial anterolateral wall.
  • The fragments obtained from autoptic tumoral cardiac tissue were processed for light and electron microscopy.
  • Results of Ulex Europeaeus Agglutinin I labelling were positive in both solid and vascular areas of the tumour although the positive reaction was less evident in the solid zones Factor VIII related antigen positive cells were less numerous and mainly found in vascular areas.
  • CONCLUSION: The light microscopy observation and immunohistochemical study underscore that is not easy to obtain information about the level of differentiation of this tumour.

  • [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.

  • [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.

  • Identification of mass type is highly desirable, since to different treatment options for cardiac tumors (surgical resection) and thrombi (effective anticoagulant treatment) are possible.
  • Correct diagnosis of the character of intracardiac mass in a living patient is a true challenge for a cardiologist; therefore, an objective image analysis method may be useful in heart diseases diagnosis.
  • In addition, classification and segmentation of selected benign tumor echocardiograms were performed.
  • Oscillator network was used with network weights defined for both whole texture region and texture boundary detection for the tumor segmentation.

  • Cardiac tumors, though rare, can affect all parts of the heart, from venous structures to atria to ventricles, valves, and great vessels.
  • Although most are benign and have good long-term prognosis, surgery for malignant tumors, whether primary or secondary, usually carries poor long-term survival.
  • Resection of ventricular tumors is limited by lack of a good ventricular muscular replacement.
  • Although cardiac transplantation has been used for tumors, long-term survival for anything but benign tumors is limited, making transplant a poor solution for any malignant tumors.
  • Outcome of resection of heart or great vessel tissue for tumors arising elsewhere is related more to the primary tumor than it is to the cardiac resection and reconstruction.

  • [Title] [Clinical analysis for 232 cases of primary heart neoplasms].
  • 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.

  • [Title] Pedicled cardiac hemangioma with right ventricular outflow tract obstruction.
  • Echocardiography and magnetic resonance imaging showed a pedicled tumor in the right ventricular outflow tract (RVOT), causing severe obstruction during systole.
  • Histological examination revealed the nature of the tumor to be a benign hemangioma.
  • As reports of cardiac hemangioma causing severe RVOT obstruction are extremely rare, this case warrants attention.

  • Pericardial disease is an important cause of morbidity and mortality in patients with cardiovascular disease.
  • Other important entities that involve the pericardium include benign and malignant pericardial masses, pericardial cysts, and diverticula, as well as congenital absence of the pericardium.
  • Recent advances in multimodality noninvasive cardiac imaging have solidified its role in the management of patients with suspected pericardial disease.
  • The physiologic and structural information obtained from transthoracic echocardiography and the anatomic detail provided by cardiac computed tomography and magnetic resonance have led to growing interest in the complementary use of these techniques.
  • Optimal management of the patient with suspected pericardial disease requires familiarity with the key imaging modalities and the ability to choose the appropriate imaging tests for each patient.
  • This report reviews the imaging modalities most useful in the assessment of patients with pericardial disease, with an emphasis on the complementary value of multimodality cardiac imaging.

  • Primary cardiac tumors are rare.
  • Although the majority are benign, they may cause significant morbidity and mortality.
  • Two-dimensional transthoracic echocardiography (2D-TTE) is the primary imaging modality for the diagnosis of cardiac tumors.
  • New and more complex non-invasive imaging modalities, such as cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR), do not always provide an added value.
