  • [Title] [Simultaneous surgery in patients suffering from tumor combined with coronary artery disease].
  • OBJECTIVE: To investigate the possibility and feasibility of the simultaneous coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) with tumor excision in patients suffering from tumor combined with coronary artery disease(CAD).
  • METHODS: From August 2000 to July 2006, ten patients who were suspected of tumor (four patients suffered from urinary system tumor, two digestive system tumor, and four pulmonary tumor) with coronary artery disease were successfully treated by simultaneous surgeries.
  • Surgical incisions were chose by the different tumor position.
  • All carried on the CABG before tumor excision except one case.
  • There was no in-hospital mortality, no postoperative hemorrhage, no myocardial ischemia or infarction, with few complications.
  • CONCLUSION: The simultaneous coronary artery bypass grafting with tumor excision for patients who suffer from either CAD with benign or malignant tumor is safe and feasible with satisfied short- and long-term survival.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Myocardial adenomatoid tumor in eight cattle: evidence for mesothelial origin of bovine myocardial epithelial inclusions.
  • The adenomatoid tumor is an uncommon benign lesion, thus far described only in humans.
  • In cattle, previously reported myocardial epithelial inclusions are morphologically similar in that the cells are immunoreactive for both cytokeratins and vimentin, and bear surface microvilli.
  • Myocardial lesions found incidentally at slaughter in 8 cattle histologically resembled the so-called bovine myocardial epithelial inclusions and had morphologic and immunohistochemical features consistent with human adenomatoid tumor.
  • All lesions were in the left ventricular myocardium, adjacent to the epicardium, and composed of epithelioid cells that formed cords and tubules, and were immunoreactive for pan-cytokeratins, cytokeratin 5/6, vimentin, calretinin, Wilms' tumor 1 suppressor gene, and CD30 antigen.
  • These lesions, corresponding to the previously described myocardial epithelial inclusions in cattle, might be considered embryologic rests and could represent the bovine counterpart of the human adenomatoid tumor.

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

MedlinePlus Health Information. consumer health - Heart Attack.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Myocardial infarction as complication of left atrial myxoma.
  • Although cardiac myxomas are histologically benign, they tend to form emboli and cause intracardiac obstruction, so that they must be classified as potentially fatal tumors of the heart.
  • The probability of arterial embolism is closely correlated with the morphology of the tumor.
  • These may present as acute myocardial ischemia with the typical clinical symptoms of acute myocardial infarction, as a silent infarct, shock, syncope or as sudden cardiac death.
  • Therefore it is reasonable to perform transoesophageal echocardiography to check out embolic sources like myxoma, when pathogenesis of myocardial infarction remains unclear after coronary angiography.

  • [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.

  • BACKGROUND: Fibroelastoma is a rare cardiac tumor that was originally described typically from autopsy findings.
  • The majority (86%) were symptomatic, with stroke, transient ischemic attack, myocardial infarction, and angina pectoris being the most commonly described.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Although cardiac papillary fibroelastomas are rare and benign tumors, they cannot be considered as harmless endothelial lesions, because related embolic events are frequent and primarily involve adults in their active period of life.

  • Based on pathological findings, the tumors were benign in 16 cases (57%), borderline in 2 cases (7%), and malignant in 10 cases (36%).
  • The tumor diameter was significantly correlated with the malignancy of gastric GISTs (3.5+/-1.6 cm in benign tumors, vs 7.5+/-1.3 cm in malignant tumors, p<0.05).
  • The mean follow-up period ranged from 6 to 60 mo in 23 of the patients, and the other 5 patients (all with benign tumors) were lost to follow-up.
  • No recurrence or metastasis was found in patients with benign gastric GISTs.
  • Four cases of malignant gastric GISTs died with tumors more than 10 cm in maximum diameter, 3 of them died of liver metastasis and multiple organ failure, and 1 died of myocardial infarction.
  • Excluding 2 patients with benign tumors that were followed for <3 yr, the 3-yr survival rate was 81% (17/21) in this group, and 60% (6/10) in the patients with malignant gastric GISTs.
  • In conclusion, the prognosis is related to the tumor size and the number of mitoses seen on histological examination.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • Papillary fibroelastomas are the most common benign neoplasms of the cardiac valvular structures, and they are being recognized more frequently because of higher-resolution imaging technology.
  • Valve-sparing excision produces good long-term results in most instances.Herein, we present the case of a patient who was scheduled for elective myocardial revascularization and in whom an aortic valve papillary fibroelastoma was discovered incidentally during routine intraoperative transesophageal echocardiography.
  • 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.

  • Papillary fibroelastoma (PFE) is a rare and benign cardiac tumor typically found on the valvular endocardium.
  • 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.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • Extracellular matrix metalloproteinase inducer expressed by tumor cells stimulates peritumoral fibroblasts to produce matrix metalloproteinases, thus contributing to tumor invasion and metastasis.
  • EMMPRIN expression was detected immunohistochemically using monoclonal antibodies MEM-M6/1 and HIM6 and tissue microarrays with 2,348 and 608 tissue samples from 129 distinct tumor types and 76 different normal tissues, respectively.
  • EMMPRIN expression was found in 112 of 129 tumor entities analyzed with malignant tumors being EMMPRIN positive more frequently than benign tumors.
  • A remarkable heterogeneity in EMMPRIN expression between tumor entities was observed.
  • There were a limited number of EMMPRIN-positive normal cell types including proliferatively active and differentiating epithelial cells, germ cells, myocardial cells in the left heart ventricle or vascular endothelial cells of the brain.

  • 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.
