  • [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.
  • In 20 pts (83%), TTE and transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) provided all the data required for preoperative assessment (tumor size, extension, location, insertion site).
  • 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.
  • The localization of CTum was intracavitary in 22 pts, 91% mainly in the left atrium (15 pts), intramyocardic in 1 pt and pericardic in 1 pt.
  • 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] Biatrial primary cardiac paraganglioma: a rare finding.
  • The majority of primary cardiac tumors are benign; of these tumors, cardiac paragangliomas are among the rarest.
  • We report a case of biatrial cardiac paraganglioma discovered during workup for palpitations and fatigue.
  • The tumor involved the interatrial septum, with a lobulated portion protruding through the foramen ovale into the right atrium.
  • The tumor was successfully excised, leading to uneventful recovery.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Epidemiological and pathological characteristics of cardiac tumors: a clinical study of 242 cases.
  • 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.
  • Myxomas have a special predilection for the left atrium (93.5%).
  • 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.

  • [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.
  • Suggestive features of malignancy are right side location, extracardiac extension, inhomogeneity in signal intensity of the tumor and pericardial effusion.
  • The use of intravenous contrast material improves tumor characterization and depiction of tumor borders.
  • MRI also allows differentiation of tumor from other nontumoral masses such as intracavitary tumors or fibromuscular elements of the posterior wall of the right atrium.

  • [Title] Atrial myxoma presenting with orthostatic hypotension in an 84-year-old Hispanic man: a case report.
  • INTRODUCTION: Left atrial myxomas remain the most common benign primary cardiac tumors, and these cardiac growths can masquerade as mitral stenosis, infective endocarditis and collagen vascular disease.
  • Atrial myxomas are found in approximately 14-20% of the population and can lead to embolization, intercardiac obstructions, conduction disturbances and lethal valve obstructions.
  • CASE PRESENTATION: An 84-year-old Hispanic man presented with complaints of dizziness upon standing, and with no prior history of heart murmurs, syncope, shortness of breath, or chest pain.
  • A transthoracic echocardiogram revealed a large atrial myxoma occupying the majority of the left atrium, with the posterior border of the large atrial mass defined by eccentric mitral regurgitation identified during cardiac catheterization.
  • Left atrial myxoma excision was performed, revealing a 7 x 6.5 x 4.5 cm atrial tumor attached to a 4 x 3 x 2 cm stalk of atrial septal tissue.
  • CONCLUSION: This patient didn't present with the common symptoms associated with an atrial myxoma, which may include chest pain, dyspnea, orthopnea, peripheral embolism or syncope.
  • By illustrating this correlation between orthostasis and an atrial myxoma, we hope to facilitate earlier identification of these intracardiac growths.

  • [Title] Right atrial and septal reconstruction after tumor excision: the single-patch technique.
  • Surgical excision is the only therapy for benign atrial tumors, if serious complications are to be avoided.
  • We propose a simplified technique whereupon a single autologous pericardial patch is used to not only close the septal defect, but to also reconstruct the right atrium.
  • This new technique allows for wide excision of tumors without reduction of the right atrium, distortion of the tricuspid valve or traction on the atrioventricular node.

  • Cardiac hemangioma is an extremely rare, benign vascular tumor of the heart.
  • In contrast to myxoma, hemangioma rarely involves left atrial tissue in adults and little information about the tumor is available.
  • We encountered a 65-year-old woman with a left atrial hemangioma arising in the appendage and growing like an extracardiac mass.
  • 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.

  • [Title] Right ventricular cardiac myxoma. Diagnostic usefulness of cardiac magnetic resonance imaging.
  • BACKGROUND: Cardiac myxomas are the most common type of cardiac tumors.
  • About 75-85% of cardiac myxomas originate in the left atrium, 15-20% in the right atrium.
  • Although myxomas are histologically benign, they may be fatal because of their strategic position.
  • The diagnosis was based on cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) imaging.
  • Typically for cardiac myxomas, contrast enhancement was moderate and delayed enhancement was found in the outer circumferential tumor margins only.
  • CONCLUSION: High spatial resolution and multiplane imaging combined with different acquisition patterns of CMR achieve a global view of the heart that seems to be useful for diagnosing cardiac tumorous masses.

  • [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 lesions were endocardial-based, located in the right atrium (1), right ventricular inflow/tricuspid valve (1), right ventricular outflow (3), mitral valve (3), aortic valve/left coronary sinus (1), and left ventricular free wall (1).
  • 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.
  • Although there were frequent collagen bundles interspersed among the tumor cells, there were no large areas of dense fibrosis.
  • 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.

  • Two-dimensional echocardiography showed a large immobile mass, 6.8x3.4 cm in size, in the left atrium, causing obstruction of the left ventricular inflow.
  • Selective coronary angiography showed normal coronary arteries, but demonstrated marked neovascularization of the left atrial mass which was supplied by the left circumflex artery originating from the right coronary cusp.
  • The patient was immediately submitted to cardiac surgery.
  • The mass was resected and histologic diagnosis was atrial myxoma.

  • 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.

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

  • [Title] 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).
  • Myxomas were located in the: left atrium in 50 (85%), left ventricle in 3 (5%), right atrium in 4 (7%) and on the mitral valve in 2 patients (3%).
  • 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.

  • 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.
  • METHODS: A 60-year-old man presented with superior vena cava syndrome, and computed tomographic scan revealed an infiltrative mass of the right atrium that nearly filled the atrial chamber and partially occluded superior vena cava flow.
  • RESULTS: Histologic examination revealed complete replacement of the atrial wall by diffuse sheets of pleomorphic lymphoid cells with occasional smaller plasmacytoid cells.
  • 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.

  • Lipomatous hypertrophy of the heart is a benign rare tumor characterized by fatty tissue deposits in the interatrial septum.
  • 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.
  • This tumor did not enhance with the administration of contrast material.
  • The benign and lipomatous nature of the lesion is confirmed, thus making the use of histology unnecessary.

  • INTRODUCTION: Myxomas are the most common type of benign heart tumors.
  • The aim of this study was to correlate the clinical forms of presentation of cardiac myxoma and complementary laboratory results with the morphological features of the tumor.
  • MATERIALS AND METHODS: We reviewed retrospectively a total of 30 cardiac myxomas seen in 2 institutions after a period of 22 years.
  • In the same period 5 cardiac sarcomas were identified.
  • In one patient the IL-6 production by peripherals blood cells before and after surgical tumor resection was evaluated.
  • The most prevalent clinical manifestations were cardiac symptoms (73,3%), constitutional symptoms (30%) and embolisms (26,7%).
  • All cases were diagnosed by transthoracic echocardiography and the most frequent location of the tumor was the left atrium.
  • Larger-diameter myxomas were observed in older patients and correlated with cardiac symptoms, radiological and electrocardiographical abnormalities.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Myxomas are the most frequent tumors of the heart.
  • The most common initial manifestations were cardiac symptoms.
  • The size and macroscopic appearance of the tumor correlated with the age of the patients and some clinical symptoms and laboratory RESULTS: Surgical excision was a safe and effective procedure. (c) 2009 Elsevier España, S.L.

  • [Title] Eleven-year experience in diagnosis and surgical therapy of right atrial masses.
  • BACKGROUND: Tumors arising from the right atrium are quite rare, and require special care during differential diagnosis for their management.
  • A review of surgical experience with right atrial tumors in 11 patients from our institution has been presented in this article.
  • METHODS: Eleven cases, operated for a tumor mass in the right atrium in our institution between January 1993 and December 2004, were retrospectively reviewed for their clinical presentation, diagnostic workup, method of surgical procedure, and histopathologic findings.
  • RESULTS: Right atrial tumors were diagnosed in 11 patients (6 males and 5 females).
  • 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.
  • We present our surgical experience of 11 patients with right atrial mass.
  • The differentiation of the right atrial tumors with the diagnostic tools before surgery, the determination of the spreading, and the structural properties of the mass may designate surgical approach and prognosis.

  • [Title] Cardiac autotransplantation for removal of left atrial hemangioma and a review of the literature.
  • We describe the management of a patient who presented with symptoms of severe congestive heart failure.
  • All cardiac valves were normal, as was the left ventricular ejection fraction.
  • 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.
  • With each systolic atrial contraction, the mass prolapsed into the left ventricle across the mitral valve annulus, inducing a gradient of 19 mm Hg.
  • At the time of surgery, the findings confirmed that the mass was attached broadly to the left atrial dome wall-epicardium, and the attachments were similar to those of the transesophageal echocardiographic findings.
  • Atrial attachments extended from the base of the heart, along the atrioventricular groove, the left dome of the left atrium, the left atrial cuff, and the anterior aspect of both 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 reconstruction encompassed the dome of the left atrium, the left atrial cuff, and the pulmonary veins.
  • The heart was reimplanted back into the pericardial cavity.
  • The pathology diagnosis was a benign cavernous hemangioma.
  • The sinus rhythm recovered following removal of the aortic cross-clamp and reperfusion of the heart.
  • A review of the literature on cardiac autotransplantation revealed that this type of surgery has been performed frequently in centers that have a cardiac transplantation program or a surgeon who has cardiac transplantation experience.
  • To our knowledge, this report is the first of cardiac autotransplantation for benign hemangioma.
