  • [Title] Surgical resection of solitary metastasis of malignant melanoma to the right atrium.
  • Although most cardiac metastases of melanomas are clinically silent, the lesions may present with life-threatening cardiac morbidities, including dysrhythmia, right ventricular outflow tract obstruction, myocardial dysfunction, pericardial effusion, or heart failure.
  • Because tumor embolization of cardiac melanoma has been reported, the presence of atrial metastatic melanoma can be another indication for surgery.Herein, we present the case of a 31-year-old man who had a right atrial metastatic melanoma of unknown primary origin.
  • He underwent surgical resection of the tumor before beginning a course of chemotherapy.

  • [Title] Usefulness of transesophageal echocardiographic observation during chemotherapy for cardiac metastasis of non-Hodgkin lymphoma complicated with left ventricular diastolic collapse.
  • A 53-year-old man, who had been treated for penile origin diffuse large B cell type non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL), suffered from right femoral pain and dyspnea.
  • Positron emission tomography (PET) revealed abnormal accumulation in his right femur and cardiac segments.
  • Transthoracic echocardiography revealed massive localized pericardial effusion with the collapse of both ventricles and the mass-like echo in the left atrium.
  • With the use of transesophageal echocardiography (TEE), we confirmed the mass-like echo around the inter-atrial septum, which directly invaded to the aortic ring and the right atrial wall.
  • In order to evaluate the effect of chemotherapy, we performed TEE and observed the precise changes of intra-cardiac tumor size.
  • We experienced a case of cardiac metastasis of NHL complicated with left ventricular diastolic collapse due to the massive localized pericardial effusion.
  • TEE is a useful tool to evaluate precisely the efficacy of chemotherapy for intra-cardiac tumors.

Genetic Alliance. consumer health - Chordoma.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • A 64-year-old woman presented with right heart failure caused by a cardiac tumor centered in the free wall of the right ventricle, accompanied by pericardial effusion.
  • A match between the biopsy specimen and tissue removed 4 years earlier resulted in the diagnosis of a cardiac metastasis from a chordoma.
  • Immunohistochemical staining was also useful in establishing the diagnosis.
  • To alleviate the right ventricular outflow obstruction, a palliative operation was planned, resecting the tumor and performing a right ventriculoplasty, which was cancelled due to the extent of infiltration of the tumor, and instead a right atrium to pulmonary artery shunt was attempted using a vascular prosthesis, only to fail due to an inability to maintain blood flow through the prosthesis.
  • Presently there are no definitive treatment options available, and some palliative chemotherapy is being performed.

  • [Title] [Clinical features and treatment outcome of advanced hepatocellular carcinoma with inferior vena caval invasion or atrial tumor thrombus].
  • BACKGROUND/AIMS: Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) with an extension to the inferior vena cava (IVC) or right atrium is uncommon, and its prognosis remains unclear due to the few case reports.
  • In order to elucidate the natural history and treatment outcome, this study investigated advanced HCC patients with an IVC invasion or atrial tumor thrombus.
  • METHODS: Between November 1987 and June 2004, a total of 41 patients were diagnosed as having HCC with IVC or right atrial involvement using the new imaging techniques including a two-dimensional echocardiography.
  • The clinical features, treatment outcome and prognosis including patient survival were analyzed.
  • The treatment modalities of the treated group included 11 systemic chemotherapy regimens (5-FU and cisplatin), 10 transarterial chemotherapy regimens, 2 chemoradiation procedures and 1 hepatic resection.
  • Independent prognostic factor affecting the survival was whether or not any treatment had been carried out.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Although the prognosis of advanced HCC with IVC invasion or a right atrial tumor thrombi is poor, treatment might improve the survival rate.

  • [Title] Excision after chemoradiotherapy of invasive thymoma extending into the right atrium: report of a case.
  • Initially, the patient received two courses of chemotherapy, but the tumor showed only a modest response; however, subsequent radiotherapy reduced the tumor size further and the intracardiac lesion disappeared, making it possible to excise the tumor without cardiopulmonary bypass.
  • Thus, when a thymoma does not respond well, we recommend radiotherapy as another treatment option, because its effects may allow for less invasive and more complete tumor excision.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Inferior vena cava and right atrial thrombosis in children with nephroblastoma: diagnostic and therapeutic problems.
  • BACKGROUND: The neoplastic thrombus in Wilms' tumor rarely can extend in to the inferior vena cava or to the right atrium.
  • The neoplastic thrombus usually is diagnosed concurrently with the tumor, although in some cases the diagnosis of the thrombus may precede the diagnosis of nephroblastoma.
  • METHODS: Among 90 children with Wilms' tumor who were treated in the authors' unit, 4 had extensive tumor thrombosis of the inferior vena cava or the right atrium.
  • One of these patients was found with a life-threatening thrombosis of the inferior vena cava and the right atrium, which was treated surgically; in this case, the diagnosis of nephroblastoma was made postoperatively.
  • As for the 3 remaining patients the diagnosis of neoplastic thrombosis and Wilms' tumor was made simultaneously.
  • In the other 3 cases the thrombus resolved with chemotherapy only.
  • Chemotherapy is suggested in cases lacking clinical symptoms of thrombosis.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • We present an unusual case of mediastinal seminoma with direct intraluminal invasion into the superior vena cava (SVC) and extension to the right atrium.
  • Magnetic resonance imaging demonstration of the SVC defect due to tumor invasion was important for determining treatment strategy because rapid posttherapeutic tumor regression may increase the risk of SVC rupture.
  • Gradual healing of the SVC defect at the tumor entrance site was attained using a tailored treatment plan with radiotherapy and chemotherapy.

MedlinePlus Health Information. consumer health - Wilms Tumor.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • BACKGROUND: Resection of a Wilms tumor extending through the inferior vena cava into the right atrium represents a challenge to the pediatric surgeon.
  • Exact preoperative diagnosis is essential to identify the tumor and its intravascular extension.
  • The feasibility of a complete resection is important as it guides subsequent therapy such as chemotherapy and radiation.
  • PROCEDURE: In order to define these issues, we reviewed the records of 33 of 1,151.
  • Patients enrolled in the SIOP 93-01/GPOH Study and the SIOP 2001/GPOH Study who had a tumor thrombus into the inferior vena cava and into the right atrium.
  • RESULTS: The median age at diagnosis was 3.73 years.
  • Twenty-four patients had a tumor thrombus into the inferior vena cava, in nine patients the thrombus reached into the right atrium.
  • CONCLUSION: Our report suggests that Wilms tumor extending to the inferior vena cava and the right atrium is technical challenging, but with adequate preoperative diagnosis and a multidisciplinary surgical approach including cardiopulmonary bypass and hypothermia, the prognosis is favorable.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Cavectomy for the treatment of Wilms tumor with vascular extension.
  • PURPOSE: Vascular extension to the vena cava occurs in 4% of Wilms tumor cases and can reach the right atrium in up to 1%.
  • Preoperative chemotherapy can cause thrombus regression and even resolution.
  • If the thrombus persists after chemotherapy, surgery will be a challenge.
  • Of these patients 6 with intravascular extension of thrombus within the right atrium were treated with extracorporeal circulation, cardiac arrest and profound hypothermia, and 3 were treated with cavectomy.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Cavectomy is a safe procedure for treating pediatric patients with Wilms tumor when there is extension and invasion of the vena cava wall without blood flow.
