  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [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.
  • Others are lipoma, rhabdomyoma, hemangioma, and papillary fibroelastoma (PFE).
  • 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.

  • [Title] Cardiac lipoma in a patient with a history of malignant tumours: a case report.
  • Cardiac tumours are relatively rare.
  • Most of them do not cause clinical symptoms so that prior to the introduction of modern methods of investigation they were predominately incidental findings during autopsies or open heart surgery.We present the case of a 63-year-old German man with a past history of malignant melanoma and renal cell carcinoma who presented with a right atrial lipoma and a suspicious lesion in the right lower lobe of the lung.
  • Surgical excision of the cardiac lipoma was performed and a biopsy of the lung mass was done which diagnosed a moderately differentiated adenocarcinoma.

MedlinePlus Health Information. consumer health - Skin Cancer.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • In order to discriminate the myocardial lesion from myxoma and other benign conditions and malignant tumors, percutaneous transvenous biopsy was performed.
  • Microscopic examination demonstrated the cardiac mass to be lipomatous hypertrophy of the interatrial septum (LHIS), and the skin lesions, simple lipomas.
  • This may be the first published case of LHIS, which likely represents cardiac involvement of lipomatosis.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Asymptomatic cardiac lipoma originating from the interventricular septum diagnosed by multi-slice computed tomography.
  • The MSCT findings were diagnostic of a benign lipoma.
  • Thus, this mass was noninvasively diagnosed as cardiac lipoma.
  • Neither life-threatening arrhythmia on Holter monitoring nor myocardial ischemia on exercise scintigraphy was observed.Transthoracic echocardiography is usually the initial diagnostic test in patients with a suspected cardiac mass.
  • In conclusion, we demonstrated the value of cardiac MSCT to diagnose an interventricular lipoma.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Survival after resection of primary cardiac tumors: a 48-year experience.
  • BACKGROUND: Primary cardiac tumors are rare but have the potential to cause significant morbidity if not treated in an appropriate and timely manner.
  • METHODS AND RESULTS: From 1957 to 2006, 323 consecutive patients underwent surgical resection of primary cardiac tumors; 163 (50%) with myxomas, 83 (26%) with papillary fibroelastomas, 18 (6%) with fibromas, 12 (4%) with lipomas, 28 (9%) with other benign primary cardiac tumors, and 19 (6%) with primary malignant tumors.
  • Based on actuarial characteristics of the 2002 U.S. population, patients who underwent myxoma resection had survival characteristics that were not significantly different from that of an age and gender matched population (SMR 1.11, P=0.57) whereas those who underwent resection of fibromas (SMR 11.17, P=0.002), papillary fibroelastomas (SMR 3.17, P=0.0003), lipomas (SMR 5.0, P=0.0003), other benign tumors (SMR 4.63, P=0.003), and malignant tumors (SMR 101, P<0.0001) had significantly poorer survival characteristics.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Surgical resection of primary cardiac tumors is associated with excellent long-term survival; patients with cardiac myxomas have survival characteristics that are not significantly different from that of a general population.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Symptomatic lipoma in the interventricular septum.
  • Cardiac lipomas, which are benign nonmyxomatous neoplasms of the heart, are rare and among those least often encountered.
  • Because they normally cause no symptoms, diagnosis is often purely accidental.
  • We report the case of a 24-year-old woman who presented with palpitations of recent onset and was found to have a lipoma attached to the left side of the interventricular septum (IVS).
  • Transthoracic and transesophageal echocardiograms were performed and showed a mass in the left side of the Ivs. During successful surgical excision of the mass, intraoperative histologic diagnosis showed the tumor was lipoma.
  • Our review of the English literature revealed that our case is only the seventh of removal of lipoma in the Ivs. The postoperative course was uneventful, and an echocardiogram taken 6 months after the operation showed no evidence of enlargement of the tumor tissue.

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

  • Transthoracic echocardiography is usually the initial diagnostic test in patients with a suspected cardiac mass.
  • Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and, since its introduction, multislice spiral computed tomography allow for detailed delineation of intra and pericardiac tumors, their extent, and their influence on cardiac function.
  • Primary benign and malignant cardiac tumors have several characteristic features in MR imaging.
  • Assessment of such features may narrow down the differential diagnosis or even allow for reliable diagnosis in selected cases.

  • [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.

  • CONCLUSION: Increased FDG uptake occurs in LHIS, a benign fatty infiltration of the interatrial septum.
  • Increased uptake in the right heart on FDG PET warrants correlation with additional imaging to assess for LHIS and avoid false interpretation of malignancy.

  • Most such lesions do not become clinically significant; however, intractable arrhythmias, blood flow obstruction, and valvular disruption may result from extensive fatty infiltration of the atrial wall or from the mass effect of benign or malignant lipomatous tumors.
  • We describe the pathology of the most common fatty lesions and underscore some of the radiographic and surgical issues pertaining to the diagnosis and management of these masses.

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

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

  • Lipomatous hypertrophy of the interatrial septum is a rare benign cardiac disorder characterised by the accumulation of adipose tissue; data from several post mortem surveys report how the disorder represents 0.6% of all benign cardiac tumours.
  • The disorder may at times lead to a pumping deficit associated to congestive heart failure or determine an abnormal heart rhythm leading even to sudden death.
  • Lipomatous hypertrophy can at times lead to problems in differential diagnosis of the disorder from other tumours or heart diseases.

  • BACKGROUND: Tumors arising from the right atrium are quite rare, and require special care during differential diagnosis for their management.
  • The histopathological examination of the surgically removed specimen revealed a benign tumor in eight patients (73%), and a malignant process in three (23%).
  • In eight patients with a benign tumor, atrial myxoma was the leading cause in half of the cases.
  • Hydatid cyst (n = 2), lipoma (n = 1), and right atrial thrombus (n = 1) were detected in the remaining four patients.
  • One patient died of heart failure after surgery.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Tumors of the right atrium are rarely seen, and necessitate a unique attention during the process of diagnosis and surgical treatment.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Myocardial fat at cardiac imaging: how can we differentiate pathologic from physiologic fatty infiltration?
  • Myocardial fat is often seen at cardiac computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance (MR) imaging of healthy adults and patients with myocardial diseases.
  • Pathologic conditions with myocardial fat include healed myocardial infarction (MI); arrhythmogenic RV cardiomyopathy or dysplasia (ARVC); and others, such as cardiac lipoma, lipomatous hypertrophy of the interatrial septum, tuberous sclerosis complex, dilated cardiomyopathy, and cardiomyopathy with muscular dystrophy.
  • Recognition of patient age, characteristic locations of myocardial fat, myocardial thickness, and ventricular size helps in differentiating physiologic and pathologic myocardial fat at cardiac imaging; findings of wall motion abnormality and late gadolinium enhancement at MR imaging help narrow the diagnosis.

  • [Title] Evaluation of cardiac tumors with magnetic resonance imaging.
  • Primary cardiac neoplasms are rare, and are more commonly benign than malignant.
  • However, metastases are by far the most common cardiac neoplasms.
  • MRI overcomes the usual limitations of echocardiography and assesses more accurately changes in cardiac function.
  • Specific tumoral characterization is only possible in cases of myxoma, lipoma, fibroma and hemangioma.

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

COS Scholar Universe. author profiles.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [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).
  • Both lipoma and the only fibroma were located in the right atrium.
  • 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.
  • No recurrence or late death was observed in the group of benign tumors.
  • 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.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • Lipomatous hypertrophy of the heart is a benign rare tumor characterized by fatty tissue deposits in the interatrial septum.
  • Its diagnosis during life is mostly seen incidental.
  • We report the case of a 74-year-old female patient, in which a cardiac mass protruding in the right atrium was diagnosed by transthoracic echocardiography.
  • The diagnosis of lipomatous hypertrophy of the interatrial septum is confirmed by MRI, which shows a well limited and not encapsulated tumor, appearing in increased signal density on T1-weighted images, and that decreases with fat-saturated sequences.
  • The benign and lipomatous nature of the lesion is confirmed, thus making the use of histology unnecessary.

  • [Title] A very rare cardiac hibernoma in the right atrium: a case report.
  • Cardiac lipomas are rare tumors often detected incidentally during routine examinations.
  • They usually remain asymptomatic for a long time and cause arrhythmia, heart valve dysfunction, or embolization in the later stages.
  • In this article, we report a case of a 64-year-old patient with a very rare cardiac hibernoma located in the right atrium.
  • Transesophageal echocardiography and computed tomography have been shown to be useful for differentiating between benign and malignant tumors in order to plan surgery.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] MRI and CT appearances of cardiac tumours in adults.
  • Primary cardiac tumours are rare, and metastases to the heart are much more frequent.
  • Myxoma is the commonest benign primary tumour and sarcomas account for the majority of malignant lesions.
  • Imaging plays a central role in their evaluation, and familiarity with characteristic features is essential to generate a meaningful differential diagnosis.
  • Cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) has become the reference technique for evaluation of a suspected cardiac mass.
  • Computed tomography (CT) provides complementary information and, with the advent of electrocardiographic gating, has become a powerful tool in its own right for cardiac morphological assessment.
  • This paper reviews the MRI and CT features of primary and secondary cardiac malignancy.
