  • [Title] Primary cardiac lymphoma: molecular cytogenetic characterization of a rare entity.
  • BACKGROUND: The majority of cardiac atrial neoplasms represent benign myxomas.
  • Rarely, malignant cardiac neoplasms are encountered and can include primary cardiac neoplasms, as well as secondary tumors involving the heart.
  • As many cardiac neoplasms lack pathognomonic clinical features, histopathologic diagnosis is crucial for classification and appropriate treatment of these neoplasms.
  • A diagnosis of primary cardiac diffuse large B-cell lymphoma with plasmacytoid differentiation was established and was supported by cytogenetic studies demonstrating the presence of a t(14;18)(q32;q21) translocation in addition to other chromosomal abnormalities.

  • [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] Angiosarcoma of the heart: structural and ultrastructural study.
  • 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] 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] [Clinicopathologic studies of 11 cases of primary cardiac valve tumors].
  • OBJECTIVE: To study the clinicopathologic features of primary cardiac valve tumors.
  • METHODS: Eleven cases of primary valve tumors collected from Fuwai Hospital during the period from 1983 to 2005 were enrolled into the study.
  • The tumors were stained with hematoxylin and eosin and Weigert-Van Gieson stain.
  • RESULTS: Primary cardiac valve tumors were uncommon and accounted for only 3% (11/426) of all primary cardiac tumors.
  • Most of them (10/11) were benign and malignancy was rarely encountered (1/11).
  • The tumor subtypes included papillary fibroelastoma (4/11), cavernous hemangioma (4/11), glomus tumor (1/11), angiosarcoma (1/11) and hamartoma (1/11).
  • Of the 11 tumors studied, 4 involved the tricuspid valve, 4 involved the mitral valve, 2 involved the pulmonary valve and 1 involved the aortic valve.
  • The diagnosis was established by preoperative echocardiography in 7 patients.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Preoperative diagnosis of primary cardiac valve tumors can be difficult due to lack of detailed information related to this group of lesions.
  • Although benign cardiac valve tumors carry a good prognosis, the clinical outcome may be disastrous as a result of hemodynamic disturbances.

  • [Title] Neoplastic heart disease -- the Muenster experience with 108 patients.
  • BACKGROUND: Tumours of the heart are rare.
  • The most common tumour entity is benign cardiac myxoma.
  • Malignant heart tumours are less common.
  • Tumours originating in other organs such as the kidney may also affect the heart by tumour progression via the inferior caval vein.
  • A large experience with surgical treatment of different types of heart tumours is presented.
  • METHODS: Between January 1989 and April 2004, 108 patients with a heart tumour were included in a database.
  • All patients underwent radical surgical resection, except for 2 patients who had malignant lymphoma of the heart.
  • RESULTS: Histological findings included 78 myxomas (72.2 %), and 6 other benign cardiac tumours in 5.6 % of the patients.
  • Primary malignant heart tumours were seen in 10 (9.2 %) and renal cell carcinoma with cardiac involvement in 6 (5.6 %) patients.
  • Eight patients presented with tumour metastases inside the heart (7.4 %).
  • Mean overall survival was 12.7 years for myxoma patients and 5.6 years for patients with other benign heart tumours.
  • Patients with primary malignant heart tumours survived 5.5 years on average.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Heart tumours are rare, but usually life-threatening.
  • Radical surgical resection is the therapy of choice and may offer excellent long-term survival, even in cases with malignant heart tumours.

  • 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] 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] 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.

  • [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.

  • [Title] The dangers of cardiac myxomas.
  • A variety of cardiac tumors have been acknowledged in the literature since the 16th century as rare forms of cardiac disease.
  • Of the primary tumors, myxomas account for at least 30% to 50% of benign tumors.
  • Despite significant advances in cardiac diagnostics leading to early recognition of myxomas, the potential for deleterious effects secondary to embolic complications remains high.
  • The purpose of this paper is to provide nurses with an understanding of the epidemiology, pathology, clinical presentation, and assessment of individuals with cardiac myxomas.
  • A case presentation is used to illustrate how the misdiagnosis of cardiac myxoma led to a delay in patient treatment.
  • Prompt recognition, diagnosis, and treatment are important in improving patient outcomes and quality of life.
  • Due to the infrequency of cardiac myxomas, ensuring appropriate preoperative and postoperative nursing care to the patient with a cardiac myxoma is essential.

  • [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.

  • BACKGROUND AND AIM OF THE STUDY: Papillary fibroelastoma (PFE) is a rare and histologically benign tumor, but it may have malignant propensity for life-threatening complications.
  • METHODS: The files of four patients with cardiac valvular PFE treated at the authors' center between January 2002 and November 2003 were reviewed.
  • The diagnosis was strongly suggested by echocardiography.
  • Tumors were noted in aortic (n = 2), mitral (n = 1) and tricuspid (n = 1) sites.
  • Indications for surgery were myocardial infarction (both aortic tumors), previous stroke (mitral tumor), and preventive (tricuspid tumor).
  • For the first aortic tumor, the aortic valve was reconstructed with a patch of autologous pericardium.

  • 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.

  • [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.

  • While primary cardiac neoplasias are rare, metastases to various cardiac structures are common.
  • Cardiac tumors may cause a wide variety of clinical signs and symptoms.
  • Benign myxomas are the most common primary tumors and often can be cured by total excision.
  • Nearly all primary cardiac malignancies are sarcomas with a poor prognosis.
  • The cardiotoxicity of anticancer agents can lead to significant complications that can affect patients being treated for various noncardiac neoplasias.
  • Cancer treatment, most frequently anthracyclines, but also trastuzumab, cyclophosphamide and others may compromise cardiac function.
  • The severity of such toxicity depends on many factors such as the molecular site of action, the immediate and cumulative dose, the method of administration, the presence of any underlying cardiac condition, and the patient's demographics.
  • Radiation ports that include the heart may produce late coronary artery disease or constrictive pericarditis.
  • Since cardiovascular disease and cancer are both common, precise knowledge of therapeutic interactions and complications is warranted.

  • RATIONALE: Neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF1) is a common autosomal dominant disorder with a broad array of clinical manifestations, including benign and malignant tumors, and characteristic cutaneous findings.
  • The disease gene, NF1, encodes neurofibromin, a ubiquitously expressed protein that acts, in part, as a Ras-GAP (GTP-ase activating protein), downregulating the activity of activated Ras protooncogenes.
  • In animal models, endothelial and smooth muscle expression of the disease gene is critical for normal heart development and the prevention of vascular disease, respectively.
  • OBJECTIVE: To determine the role of NF1 in the postnatal and adult heart.
  • Nf1mKO mice have normal embryonic cardiovascular development but have marked cardiac hypertrophy, progressive cardiomyopathy, and fibrosis in the adult.
  • Hyperactivation of Ras and downstream pathways are seen in the heart with the loss of Nf1, along with activation of a fetal gene program.
  • CONCLUSIONS: This report describes a critical role of Nf1 in the regulation of cardiac growth and function.
  • Activation of pathways known to be involved in cardiac hypertrophy and dysfunction are seen with the loss of myocardial neurofibromin.

  • 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] Heart tumors in children and adults: clinicopathological study of 59 patients from a surgical center.
  • BACKGROUND: Heart tumors are rare lesions with variegated histological types.
  • RESULTS: Congenital tumors (n = 17; 29%), including rhabdomyomas (n = 9), ventricular fibromas (n = 6), and hemangiomas (n = 1), required surgery mainly because of mass effect.
  • Acquired benign tumors (n = 28; 47%) included myxomas (n = 21), fibroelastomas (n = 3), myofibroblastic inflammatory tumors (n = 2), and lipomas (n = 2).
  • These benign noncongenital tumors were all treated by complete resection, except for an incompletely resected lipoma of the mitral valve.
  • Primary sarcomas (n = 8; 14%) were mostly vascular tumors (five of eight), and patients with high-grade tumors had a mean survival of 15 months (n = 5).
  • Cardiac metastases (n = 6; 10%) were from carcinomas (n = 3) or sarcomas (n = 3); apart from a necrotic metastasis, all patients died (mean survival of 6 months).
  • CONCLUSIONS: This study shows that, regardless of patients' age, heart tumors can be classified as: (a) congenital lesions, which are spontaneously nonprogressive or regressive lesions possibly requiring surgery mainly because of mass effect;.
  • (b) acquired benign tumors, which are lesions requiring surgery often because of embolization risk; and (c) primary and secondary malignant tumors, which are lesions with globally poor prognosis but with some indications for resection.

  • [Title] Incidental finding of a large pulmonary valve fibroelastoma: a case report.
  • Papillary fibroelastoma (PFE) is an uncommon primary neoplasm of cardiac origin.
  • They are solitary neoplasms that historically were an incidental finding at the time of autopsy.
  • With the advent of two-dimensional echocardiography, symptomatic cases have been reported in current literature, thus causing a paradigm shift in the management of these tumors.
  • Although the majority of PFE are benign, because of their potential risk for complication related to embolic and obstructive phenomena, they are now considered hazardous and require tumor excision even in asymptomatic patients.

  • This paper describes an automatic method for classification and segmentation of different intracardiac masses in tumor echocardiograms.
  • 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.

  • [Title] [Experiences in surgical treatment of cardiac tumors].
  • OBJECTIVE: To summarize the experiences in surgical treatment of cardiac tumors.
  • 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.

  • [Title] Cardiac myxomas: short- and long-term follow-up.
  • BACKGROUND: Cardiac myxomas are the most frequently encountered benign intracardiac tumors, that, if left untreated, are inexorably progressive and potentially fatal.
  • Patients with cardiac myxoma can be treated only by surgical removal.
  • This study summarizes our experience over 22 years with these tumors.
  • METHODS: Fifty seven patients (M/F: 14/43, age: 57.9 +/- 14.6 years) with cardiac myxomas underwent surgical resection at our institution.
  • Cause of death was cardiac in 40% of the patients (n = 2) and non-cardiac in the other 60% (n = 3).
  • CONCLUSIONS: Surgical excision of cardiac myxoma carries a low operative risk and gives excellent short-term and long-term results.
  • Surgical excision of the tumor appears to be curative, with few recurrences at long-term follow-up.
  • After diagnosis, surgery should be performed urgently, in order to prevent complications such as embolic events or obstruction of the mitral orifice.

  • Cardiac papillary fibroelastomas are very rare and benign tumors, usually involving heart valves.
  • Diagnosis is evoked by echocardiography and confirmed by histopathological examination.
  • The only curative treatment consists of the excision of the tumor under cardiopulmonary bypass.
  • Transthoracic and transoesophageal echocardiography detected tumors of the mitral and aortic valve in the first and second patients, respectively.
  • Preserving the valve integrity, both masses were surgically excised and pathological findings confirmed the diagnosis.

  • [Title] Therapy insight: malignant primary cardiac tumors.
  • Benign cardiac tumors are resected with a high degree of success with modern cardiac surgical techniques.
  • Malignant cardiac tumors, however, continue to pose a therapeutic challenge to cardiac surgeons and oncologists because of the technical difficulty involved in extensive cardiac resections and the aggressive biological nature of the tumors.
  • The majority of malignant cardiac tumors are sarcomas and can be categorized as right heart sarcoma, left heart sarcoma or pulmonary artery sarcoma.
  • Right heart sarcomas are generally angiosarcomas, which infiltrate widely and metastasize early.
  • Left heart sarcomas, although large, are often less infiltrative and metastasize later than right heart sarcomas, but a similar approach to treatment is usually employed.
  • Surgical resection is more-frequently necessary for left heart sarcomas because of intracardiac blood flow obstruction and congestive heart failure, although the anatomic position and relation of these tumors to cardiac structures can complicate surgery.
  • We have developed and employed the technique of cardiac autotransplantation, which involves cardiac excision, ex vivo tumor resection with cardiac reconstruction, and cardiac reimplantation, to lessen these technical difficulties.

  • [Title] Surgical experience with 77 primary cardiac tumors.
  • BACKGROUND: To assess the prognosis and to develop management strategies for primary cardiac tumors all patients were included in an ongoing study.
  • 1994 until December 2003 we prospectively evaluated all patients with cardiac tumors.
  • RESULTS: There were a total of 77 primary cardiac tumors.
  • Seventy-three were benign: myxoma (n=59), papillary fibroelastoma (n=11), lipoma (n=2), fibroma (n=1) and four malignant sarcoma (n=4).
  • There were 4 primary cardiac sarcomas, located in the right ventricle (n=2), the pulmonary valve (n=1) and left atrium (n=1).
  • Minimal invasive right thoracotomy was utilized in 19 of 73 patients all with benign tumor.
  • There were two early deaths (3%): a myxoma patient with triple vessel disease and a LVEF less than 30% and one sarcoma patient.
  • No recurrence or late death was observed in the group of benign tumors.
  • However, two remaining patients with sarcoma had recurrent disease 10 and 15 month later, respectively.
  • CONCLUSION: Surgical excision of benign cardiac tumors is a safe and curative treatment, which is feasible using minimally invasive right thoracotomy approach and provides excellent results.
  • However, therapy of malignant cardiac tumors continues to have a poor prognosis despite individualization of approach.

  • [Title] Surgical management of unusual cardiac tumors in infants and children.
  • While most primary tumors of the heart are histologically benign, they are significant space-occupying lesions with serious functional implications for the heart and lungs.
  • Herein, we highlight our experience with the surgical management of selected cardiac tumors in the pediatric population between 2008 and 2010. (1) Intrapericardial teratomas in the fetus can produce fatal tamponade from compression by the attendant pericardial effusion, and a critical life-saving maneuver preoperatively is to drain the effusion prenatally, followed by an expeditious resection after birth. (2) Rhabdomyomas, the most common of the pediatric cardiac tumors, can be intracavitary, large, and associated with the mitral subvalvular apparatus. (3) Cardiac fibromas should be aggressively resected or at least debulked, especially given their propensity for dysrrhythmias.

  • Although cardiac myxomas are histologically benign, they tend to form emboli and cause intracardiac obstruction, so that they must be classified as potentially fatal tumors of the heart.
  • The probability of arterial embolism is closely correlated with the morphology of the tumor.
  • These may present as acute myocardial ischemia with the typical clinical symptoms of acute myocardial infarction, as a silent infarct, shock, syncope or as sudden cardiac death.
  • Interestingly there is a tendency for spontaneous recanalization of the obstructed coronary vessels, perhaps because of the tumors' tissue composition.

  • 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.

  • 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] Cardiac tumors: the experience of a tertiary cardiology center.
  • Cardiac tumors represent a rare condition, often presenting with severe symptoms and having a poor outcome in the absence of early diagnosis and therapy.
  • The aim of this study was to assess the prevalence and type of cardiac tumors, the techniques used for the diagnosis and the therapy used in a tertiary cardiology center.
  • RESULTS: In the CTum group (49 +/- 16.2 years, similar between men and women), the main symptoms leading to patients referral were dyspnea (15 pts, 62.5%) and embolic events (coronary, cerebral, peripheral arteries: 7 pts, 29%), while in 4 asymptomatic pts the diagnosis was incidental.
  • In 20 pts (83%), TTE and transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) provided all the data required for preoperative assessment (tumor size, extension, location, insertion site).
  • In 4 pts, additional CT and MRI investigations were necessary, mainly for complex disease (malignant secondary CTum).
  • The imaging techniques suggested a diagnosis of benign tumor in 15 pts (62.5%) and malignant tumor in 5 pts.
  • In 4 pts the tumor type could not be established.
  • Myxoma was the most frequent diagnosis (14 pts, 58% CTum).
  • Among malignant CTum, secondary tumors (melanoma, lung and uterine cancer) were more frequent than primary CTum (4 vs 1 pt).
  • Surgery was performed in 18 pts, confirming the preoperative diagnosis in 17 cases (94%).
  • In one case, a myxochondrosarcoma was diagnosed at pathology in a patient with an echocardiography-based preoperative diagnosis of myxoma.
  • Echocardiography (TTE and TEE) is the essential imaging modality, allowing in most cases the diagnosis, classification and localization of CTum and their insertion site.
  • In the case of benign tumors, surgery must be performed as soon as possible after the diagnosis has been established, whereas for malignant tumors there is still much controversy in what regards the benefits of surgery.

  • [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.

  • 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] Genetic analysis in a patient with recurrent cardiac myxoma and endocrinopathy.
  • A 60 year-old male was referred for treatment of a cardiac myxoma in the right atrium.
  • He had a past history of left atrial cardiac myxoma at age 49 and pituitary microadenoma related to acromegaly at age 55.
  • He did not have a family history of cardiac neoplasm or endocrinopathy.
  • The intracardiac tumor was resected and its pathology was compatible with myxoma.
  • A diagnosis of Carney complex (CNC) was made because the diagnostic criteria of this neoplastic syndrome were satisfied by the presence of recurrent cardiac myxoma, endocrine tumor and spotty skin pigmentation.
  • Although it is the most common, usually benign, cardiac tumor, myxoma can cause a critical clinical situation and thus detecting the PRKAR1A mutation can assist with prognosis.

  • Tumors involving the heart are rare, and the majority of them are benign.
  • Secondary lymphoma with localization to the heart is the third most common malignant heart tumor and is more common, by far, than primary cardiac lymphomas.
  • Patients can also present with obstructive symptoms, based on the location and size of the tumor, and signs such as elevated jugular venous pressure, peripheral edema, ascites, and hepatomegaly.
  • Transthoracic echocardiography is the initial modality of choice for diagnosis of cardiac lymphomas because it is readily available and helps localize the tumor, but transesophageal echocardiography and magnetic resonance imaging remain the best tests for evaluation.
  • Treatment consists primarily of chemotherapy, and anticoagulation can be used in certain cases where embolization of the tumor is likely.

  • [Title] Dysembryoplastic neuroepithelial tumors and cognitive outcome: cure at a price?
  • BACKGROUND: Dysembryoplastic neuroepithelial tumors (DNETs) are benign glioneuronal tumors that occur in children.
  • These tumors are characterized by seizures, lack of neurologic deficits, and a seemingly benign course after resection.
  • RESULTS: The patient cohort included 8 boys and 3 girls (median age at diagnosis, 10 years); all patients presented with seizures: 4 complex partial, 3 generalized tonic-clonic, 2 absence, 1 partial simple, and 1 not classified.
  • Of the 11 patients, 1 died of cardiac fibrosis, and tumors recurred or progressed in 4 (36%) patients.
  • CONCLUSIONS: The high recurrence and progression rates of DNETs and the high rate of abnormal neurocognitive test results noted in the current study highlight the need for regular follow-up and appropriate academic counseling of children with these tumors.

  • BACKGROUND: Atrial myxomas are the most common primary cardiac tumors.
  • They are usually small or moderate in size by the time of the diagnosis, exhibiting non specific cardiac or systemic symptoms, and are most frequently soft and friable without microscopic signs of ossification.
  • CASE PRESENTATION: An asymptomatic 58-year-old male with a giant left atrial tumor, was transferred to our Unit for surgical treatment.
  • The tumor was an incidental finding during a work-up for hemoptysis due to bronchectasis.
  • The coronary angiogram showed tumor vessels originating from the RCA.
  • The tumor macroscopically did not resemble a myxoma, considering its dimensions (12 x 10 cm) and its solid substance.
  • The pathology study revealed a benign myxoma with excessive osteoid (mature bone) content.
  • CONCLUSION: We consider our case as extremely rare because of the asymptomatic course despite the large size of the tumor, the blood supply from the right coronary artery and the bone formation.

  • 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.

  • [Title] MR imaging of cardiac masses.
  • Cardiac MR imaging is the preferred method for assessment of cardiac masses.
  • A comprehensive cardiac MR imaging examination for a cardiac mass consists of static morphologic images using fast spin-echo sequences, including single-shot techniques, with T1 and T2 weighting and fat suppression pulses as well as dynamic imaging with cine steady-state free precession techniques.
  • Specific cardiac tumoral characterization is possible in many cases.
  • When specific tumor characterization is not possible, MR imaging often can demonstrate aggressive versus nonaggressive features that help in differentiating malignant from benign tumors.

  • [Title] Cardiac inflammatory myofibroblastic tumor: a "benign" neoplasm that may result in syncope, myocardial infarction, and sudden death.
  • Cardiac tumors other than myxomas are rare.
  • All tumors were surgical resections, except 1 tumor that resulted in sudden coronary death and that was diagnosed at autopsy, and 1 tumor that embolized into the coronary artery and was treated by cardiac transplant.
  • Two tumors, present in the aortic and mitral valves, respectively, caused cardiac ischemia.
  • The tumors were polypoid or filiform and histologically resembled inflammatory myofibroblastic tumors of extracardiac sites, with loose spindle cell growth with sparse inflammation.
  • Although there were frequent collagen bundles interspersed among the tumor cells, there were no large areas of dense fibrosis.
  • Long-term follow-up in 2 patients demonstrated no evidence of disease or recurrence.
  • Although metastatic potential was not identified, these tumors may result in serious symptoms, including myocardial infarct, syncope, and sudden death.
  • These cardiac myofibroblastic tumors are readily distinguished from other endocardial-based cardiac tumors, including papillary fibroelastoma and myxoma, which may present clinically in the same manner.

  • The most common benign cardiac tumours are the myxomas, the rhabdomyomas, and the fibromas, with the latter 2 variants being the most common tumours encountered in children.
  • The size and location of tumours within the heart create a variety of clinical findings, such as murmurs, chest pain, tachyarrythmias, and congestive cardiac failure.
  • Nowadays, the tumours are usually diagnosed by echocardiography, magnetic resonance imaging and cardiac catheterization.
  • Surgical excision is the treatment of choice if the tumour causes either arrhythmia or cavitary obstruction.

  • [Title] Imaging of ventricular septal tumor in an asymptomatic adolescent using multiple modalities.
  • Primary cardiac tumors are rare at all ages, and especially so in childhood, where the most prevalent type of benign cardiac masses are rhabdomyomas followed by fibromas, both of which have a predilection for ventricular septum.
  • We report an unusual case of a tumor involving the ventricular septum in an asymptomatic 17-year-old adolescent who has been known to have this tumor for 10 years.
  • The use of multiple imaging included myocardial contrast two-dimensional echocardiography, real time three-dimensional echocardiography (with and without myocardial contrast), and magnetic resonance imaging supported the diagnosis of cardiac rhabdomyoma.

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

  • This paper deals with a population-based material collected during the years 1990-1998, and comprises 439 tumours and tumour-like vascular processes from 420 dogs.
  • A distinction is made between benign neoplasms, tumours of intermediate malignancy, and obvious malignant processes (angiosarcomas).
  • More than one half (242 of 439) occurred in the skin, and a great majority of skin processes (223 of 242) represented benign tumours or tumour-like lesions.
  • The next most common site of summarised lesions was the spleen, with 110 cases, with only 17 processes in this organ being defined as benign.
  • Eleven of 12 heart tumours were angiosarcomas.
  • Most tumour-like proliferations were papillary endothelial hyperplasias.
  • Recurrence occurred in 17 dogs, some of which had received a primary benign diagnosis.
  • Primary metastases were observed in 63 animals, the majority in the spleen and heart.
  • The male/female rate of benign tumours was 0.78, for tumour-like processes 1.83, intermediate malignant tumours 1.65, and angiosarcomas 1.60.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • Herein is described an EHE incidentally detected in the mitral valve of a 69-year-old woman with chronic rheumatic valvular heart disease.
  • Symptomatic patients had clinical features of valvular disease or embolism.
  • Each of the four cardiac valves can be affected.
  • Mean tumor size was 2.4 cm (range, 0.4-8 cm).
  • In 40% of cases the EHE was an incidental finding at autopsy or in a removed valve.
  • In two cases the involved cusp was affected by chronic rheumatic disease.
  • In conclusion, EHE is a rare lesion that can be an incidental finding and it should be considered in the differential diagnosis of valve tumors.
  • Although EHE can present a histologically benign appearance, the correct pathological diagnosis is clinically important because the lesion can be potentially malignant.

  • [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.

  • 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: Inflammatory myofibroblastic tumor (IMT) is an uncommon lesion, mainly occurring in children and young adults and extremely rare in the heart.
  • Cardiac IMTs are considered biologically benign, but they may have fatal consequences depending upon the peculiarity of site.
  • Because of their rarity in the heart, most knowledge is based on extracardiac lesions that have uncertain behaviour.
  • After complete surgical excision of the tumor, the patient is disease-free at 1 year of follow-up.
  • Immunohistochemistry was helpful for characterization and differential diagnosis.
  • The immunoreactivity pattern (including calponin expression) was similar to that of extracardiac IMTs except for anaplastic lymphoma kinase 1 immunoreactivity, lacking in this benign intracardiac IMT but usually associated to favourable prognosis in extracardiac IMTs.

  • [Title] Papillary fibroelastoma of the heart.
  • Primary intra-cardiac tumors are rare.
  • Most of them are benign.
  • 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.

  • [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.

  • [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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Lipomatous lesions of the heart and cystic tumor of the atrioventricular node are not common.
  • A pathologist will only rarely encounter these entities, and in the case of the atrioventricular node tumor, only if they examine the conduction system.
  • Most fatty lesions are not clinically significant; however, arrhythmias, blood flow obstruction, and valvular dysfunction may result from benign or malignant lipomatous tumors.
  • Cystic tumor of the atrioventricular node has been implicated in the causation of sudden cardiac death, and there has been much academic interest concerning its cell of origin.

  • 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.

  • [Title] Ischemic stroke in a young woman with aortic papillary fibroelastoma: echocardiographic diagnosis and surgical excision.
  • Papillary fibroelastoma is a benign cardiac tumor typically attached to the cardiac valves.
  • The tumor is recognized during life often in patients evaluated for embolic events of unclear etiology, but sometimes it is recognized in totally asymptomatic patients.
  • The diagnosis was obtained at two-dimensional echocardiography and confirmed at transesophageal echocardiography.
  • The tumor was located in the non-coronary aortic cusp, without aortic regurgitation.
  • The tumor was surgically removed.
  • The biopsy confirmed the diagnosis.
  • This case is an example of a primary intracavitary tumor recognized in a young woman with unclear embolic event.
  • Two-dimensional echocardiography proved to be the exam of choice for the early diagnosis of cardiac tumors.
