  • Hibernoma is a benign soft-tissue tumor, which arises from the remnants of fetal brown adipose tissue.
  • Out of less than 300 cases of hibernoma described to date, pericardial sac is an unusual localization to develop.
  • When the tumor increases in size, this benign pathology can lead to compression of cardiac chambers and cause life-threatening complications in an asymptomatic patient.
  • Here, the authors present the case of a 20-year-old male who underwent an operation for the treatment of constrictive pericarditis, in which an intrapericardial sessile lesion over diaphragmatic surface of pericardial sac was incidentally discovered.
  • The tumor was excised and diagnosed as hibernoma.

  • Neoplasia-related pericardial effusions are a frequent finding and pose diagnostic and therapeutic challenges.
  • Although they appear in the context of an underlying neoplastic disease, 50% of these effusions have a benign etiology; they are indirectly caused by the tumor.
  • The remaining cases (neoplastic pericardial effusions - NPE) derive from extension of tu- moral disease to the epi and/or pericardium and have, therefore, a worst prognosis.
  • Pericardioperitoneal shunt (PPS) is a surgical pericardial drainage method, which has demonstrated its usefulness in the management of NPE.

  • [Title] Massive pericardial effusion treated with in utero pericardioamniotic shunt in a fetus with intrapericardial teratoma.
  • Teratoma is the leading neoplasm diagnosed in neonates and infants.
  • Although over 99% of teratomas found in the fetus and newborn are histologically benign, those tumors may cause death if vital structures are involved or if the airway is compromised.
  • We review the literature on antenatal intrapericardial teratomas and report a case of intrapericardial teratoma, with massive pericardial effusion and fetal hydrops, diagnosed on antenatal ultrasound at 21 weeks of gestation.
  • In spite of successful drainage of the pericardial effusion, fetal demise was documented 8 days later, likely due to tumor compression of the heart.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • Consecutive medical records of the patients with pericardial effusion treated with pericardiocentesis or pericardioscopy in the period of 1982-2002 were analyzed retrospectively.
  • Criteria of neoplastic pericarditis were: positive result of pericardial fluid cytology and/or neoplastic infiltration found in pericardial biopsy specimen.
  • Criteria of non-neoplastic pericarditis were: negative result of pericardial fluid cytology and pericardial biopsy specimen, no neoplastic disease diagnosed at presentation and during 3-years of follow up.
  • Pericardial thickness on CT scan exceeded 8 mm in 75% of the pts with malignant pericarditis and 8% of pts with nonmalignant disease (p = 0.0003).
  • Pericardial fluid (pf) CEA concentration was significantly higher in the patients with neoplastic pericarditis than in the pts with non-malignant process.
  • CEA > 5 ng/ml and Cyfra 21-1>50 ng/ml were found in 43% of the pts with malignant pericarditis and none of the pts with benign pericarditis.
  • Thus we recommend chest CT scan and pericardial fluid tumor markers (CEA and Cyfra 21-1) assessment as the procedures helpful in the recognition of malignant pericarditis.

  • [Title] Mesothelial cyst of the pericardium, absent on earlier computed tomography.
  • Pericardial cysts are benign intrathoracic lesions that are considered to be congenital.
  • Computed tomography revealed a pericardial cyst on the right side of the anterior mediastinum, near the confluence of the brachiocephalic vein and the superior vena cava and very close to the ascending aorta.
  • Due to the cyst's unusual location and the ineffectiveness of medical therapy, we excised the tumor via median sternotomy.
  • We found a large (7 x 4-cm), well-circumscribed, unilocular cyst, which unexpectedly involved the outside pericardial surface and the phrenic nerve.
  • Histopathologic examination confirmed that the lesion was a simple mesothelial cyst of the pericardium.
  • We know of no other report of a pericardial cyst that had gone undetected upon earlier computed tomography.
  • We believe that surgical treatment of pericardial cysts should be reserved for patients who have severe symptoms due to complications, or when diagnosis is uncertain and malignancy is suspected.

  • [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.
  • 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.
  • 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.

  • There were 17 thoracic diseases such as emphysema, bullectomy for spontaneous pneumothorax, massive bullae, benign tumor of mediastinum, cyst of mediastinum, pulmonary benign tumors, hydropericardium, malignant pleural fluid, etc.
  • A supplementary incision was needed in 10 cases: Six were due to the adhesion of full pleural cavity and 4 were found with the malignant tumor during the operation.
  • CONCLUSION: VATS is an alternative approach that provides a safe, less invasive, and effective operation for treating spontaneous pneumothorax, benign tumor of mediastinum, cyst of mediastinum, pulmonary benign tumors, pericardial perfusion, and acute chest trauma patients.

  • 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.
  • According to the echocardiography characteristics there were diagnosed 20 rhabdomyomas, 2 fibromas, 2 pericardial teratomas and 3 non classifiable tumours.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Firstly, there is shown to be a low prevalence of this disorder in children.
  • The course is benign in most tumours, rhabdomyomas tending to regress spontaneously.

  • 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.
  • RESULTS: Eleven children with a diagnosis of primary cardiac tumor were identified, three of them detected antenatally.
  • All were benign (eight rhabdomyomas, one papillary fibroelastoma, one myxoma and one pericardial tumor with histological features of Castleman disease).
  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Data on epidemiology and incidence are rare: there is only an estimated incidence of cardiac neoplasm at necropsy ranging from 0,001% to 0,3%.
  • The majority of the primary tumors are benign.
  • The most common tumor entity is benign cardiac myxoma.
  • Indeed in women breast cancer is the most common metastatic tumor associated with pericardial effusion.
  • To prevent death from tamponade, pericardiocentesis, in addition to the systemic chemotherapy, is mandatory, best when instillation of chemotherapeutics (cisplatin or thiotepa) or radioisotopes is given into the pericardial sac to prevent recurrence of the effusion.
  • METHODS: A retrospective study was conducted of all patients with cardiac and pericardial neoplasm exactly diagnosed by endomyocardial or epicardial biopsy and pericardiocentesis, using hospital medical records and a biopsy and pericardiocentesis registry from 2000-2005 with 297 patients.
  • Pericardial effusion and biopsy analyses included biochemistry, cytology, serology, microbiology, histology, immunohistology, and polymerase chain reaction (PCR).
  • RESULTS: In 76 cases (25.6%) a neoplasm was the reason for a pericardial effusion.
  • 36 women suffered from the breast carcinoma (47%) and 40 males lung cancer (42%) as the firstly metastatic tumor.
  • There was no recurrence of a relevant pericardial effusion in patients who were treated by intrapericardial instillation of cisplatin (30 mg/m2 body surface in 100 ml 0.9% NaCl).
  • By contrast, the preventive checkup and aftercare will gain more prognostic importance, especially in case of breast cancer, to earlier recognize a secondary cardiac neoplasm by biopsy and pericardiocentesis with intrapericardial treatment of neoplastic pericarditis.

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

  • We performed an immunocytochemical survey of XIAP expression in cell blocks from benign and malignant body cavity effusions and washes.
  • In all, 116 alcohol-fixed, formalin postfixed paraffin-embedded cell block specimens from 82 pleural effusions, 22 ascites, 11 pelvic/peritoneal washes and one pericardial effusion were evaluated immunocytochemically with monoclonal anti-XIAP (#610763, BD Biosciences, San Jose, USA) 1:250, 4 degrees C x 72 h, and developed using EnVision-Plus reagents (Dako) and diaminobenzidine as chromagen.
  • Benign effusions (n = 35) were virtually XIAP-negative except for two cases (6%) in which histiocytes showed moderate staining.
  • XIAP immunostaining, when strong, allows for ready distinction of malignant from benign and reactive cell populations.
  • The degree of XIAP staining of tumor cells may be a means of identifying the most therapy-resistant cases (ie, those with strong XIAP expression), and allow additional triaging to XIAP-blocking drugs presently being developed and clinically tested.

  • [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.
  • Gore and Associates, Flagstaff, AZ) was used for 12 reconstructions (63%) of the SVC, and 7 patients underwent primary closure or autologous pericardial patch repair.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Resection and reconstruction may be safely performed in selected patients for benign and malignant obstruction or infiltration of the SVC.

  • [Title] [Differentiation of malignant from nonmalignant, inflammatory pericardial effusions with biomarkers].
  • Disorders of the pericardium are commonly associated with pericardial effusion.
  • Pericardiocentesis, pericardioscopy and targeted epicardial biopsy with consecutive pericardial fluid and epicardial biopsy analysis by cytology, molecular biology and immunology establish the underlying etiology in the majority of cases.
  • Of particular therapeutic and prognostic importance is the definite differentiation of malignant pericardial effusion from benign pericardial effusion.
  • With respect to pericardial disorders, a comprehensive approach combining clinical information, imaging biomarkers, biomarkers of pericardial effusion and analysis of epicardial biopsies often leads to the definite etiologic diagnosis of pericardial effusion.
  • Biomarkers of pericardial effusion include biochemical markers, autoantibodies, tumor markers, and cytokines.
  • Analysis of pericardial fluid specific gravity, protein level and lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) separates transudates from exsudates.
  • High adenosine deaminase levels (ADA) and low levels of carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA) in the pericardial effusion are observed in tuberculous pericarditis allowing the differentiation from malignant pericardial effusion.
  • Tumor markers in pericardial fluid have been used to diagnose malignant pericarditis.
  • CEA levels are significantly higher in malignant than benign effusion.
  • By a cutoff level of CEA > 5 ng/ml the diagnostic sensitivity and specificity are 75% and 100%, respectively, in the diagnosis of malignant pericardial effusion.
  • Further analysis of cytokines and mediators, serologic, immunologic and inflammatory markers may help to understand the pathophysiology of the pericardial disease and provide useful diagnostic information.

  • The patient was subjected to right carinal resection, pneumonectomy, and pericardial patch tracheoplasty for reconstruction of the trachea.
  • Histopathological examination and immunohistochemical staining of tumor specimens were compatible with pleomorphic adenoma.
  • Postoperative follow-up of this patient for a period of 6 months showed satisfactory results with no complications or tumor recurrence.
  • We present not only a very rare benign tracheal tumor in children but also demonstrate successful usage of a free pericardial patch for tracheal reconstruction, although direct anastomosis failed to provide an adequate anastomotic lumen.

  • One patient died after resection of a malignant histiocytoma, and one patient required a tumor-related reoperation.
  • Freedom from tumor-related reoperation after 10 years was 91% +/- 8.7%.
  • Spontaneous tumor regression is common in rhabdomyoma and surgery, and is indicated only for symptomatic patients with hemodynamically significant intracardiac obstruction.
  • For all other benign primary cardiac tumors, complete resection usually can be accomplished with good results.
  • Patients with giant tumor masses compressing or infiltrating the heart frequently cannot undergo complete resection.

  • A mobile left atrial tumor measuring 6 x 4 x 5 cm was found attached to the left atrial dome, left atrial cuff, and left pulmonary veins.
  • The tumor could not be adequately excised, and reconstruction of the defect was not feasible with the heart in situ.
  • We therefore decided to explant the heart and excise the tumor with a 0.5-cm margin of healthy tissue.
  • The broad left atrial defect was reconstructed with bovine pericardium.
  • The heart was reimplanted back into the pericardial cavity.
  • The pathology diagnosis was a benign cavernous hemangioma.
  • To our knowledge, this report is the first of cardiac autotransplantation for benign hemangioma.

  • [Title] Visceral pericardial hemangioma: unusual location for a rare cardiac tumor.
  • 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.
  • Hemangiomas account for 2% to 5% of benign cardiac tumors, arising from the cardiac ventricles, atria, valves, and, rarely, the epicardium/pericardium.
  • This case illustrates a very rare location for an unusual benign cardiac tumor.
