A novel minimally invasive technique for left atrial myxoma surgery involving a combination of mini-sternotomy and restricted left atrial dome incision is described. Surgery is performed through a mini-J sternotomy at third intercostal space and a standard aorto-right atrial cannulation. Exposure of cardiac mass is obtained by a restricted incision of the left atrial dome which provides excellent view of the entire interatrial septum. Base of the tumor base is clearly visualized making the en-bloc excision extremely easy...

BACKGROUND: Cardiac myxoma is known to cause repeated events of cerebral embolism. Soft and irregularly shaped myxomas with high mobility are associated with a higher occurrence of cerebral embolism. In contrast, nonmobile cardiac myxomas with a round regular shape are rarely considered to be a cause of cerebral embolism. In this case, we present a patient with recurrent cerebral embolism associated with a small and nonmobile cardiac myxoma of round regular shape. CASE PRESENTATION: A 76-year-old Japanese man presented to our hospital with weakness in his right upper extremity...

Rosai-Dorfman disease, or sinus histiocytosis with massive lymphadenopathy, is a rare multisystemic disorder that was first reported by Rosai and Dorfman in 1969. It is a distinct histioproliferative disorder due to overproduction of histiocytes, which accumulate in lymph nodes. The cardiac involvement of this disease is extremely rare, and until now, only 18 cases have been reported. We report the case of a 53-year-old woman with right atrial mass mimicking myxoma, which the histopathologic evaluation revealed to be Rosai-Dorfman disease of the right atrium...

BACKGROUND: To retrospectively evaluate mitral valve abnormality in left atrial myxoma patients by using cardiac computed tomography (CT). MATERIAL AND METHODS: Cardiac CT was performed in 56 patients with left atrial myxoma and 50 controls. Tumor and mitral valve characteristics were analyzed. The mitral valve parameters differences were compared between patients with myxoma and controls, myxoma with or without mitral valve obstruction, different obstruction degrees, respectively...

RATIONALE: An intracardiac cystic mass is a rare type of mass found in the left atrium. The differential diagnosis of an intracardiac cystic mass includes hydatid cysts, bronchogenic cysts, intracardiac varices, and hemorrhages in some tumor types, including myxoma. PATIENT CONCERNS: We present the case of a 68-year-old woman who presented with episodic dyspnea. DIAGNOSES-INTERVENTIONS-OUTCOMES: Transthoracic echocardiography (TTE) revealed the presence of a left atrial mass mimicking myxoma...

Carney complex accounts for up to two-thirds of familial cardiac myxoma. It is a rare autosomal dominant syndrome, which is also characterized by multiple mucocutaneous lesions and endocrine tumors. We report on three first-degree relatives who underwent surgical resection at the same Australian tertiary institution. One patient re-presented with a recurrent tumor at an interval of 6 years. In this context, the role of interval surveillance, family screening, and genetic testing is explored. We recommend interval echocardiographic surveillance for affected individuals and first-degree relatives given the high risk of recurrence and the morbidity and mortality associated with cardiac tumors in any location...

Objective: To investigate the clinical characteristics of stroke in young patients with cardiac myxoma. Methods: Medical records of young patients (aged between 18-44 years) diagnosed with cardiac myxoma in Beijing Anzhen Hospital affiliated to Capital Medical University from January 2005 to March 2016 were retrospective reviewed. Results: A total of 117 cases were included (85 female and 32 male)with the average age (36±7)years old. Most myxomas (83.8%) were located in the left atrium, 7.7% were in the right atrium, 3...

BACKGROUND: Primary cardiac tumors are rare and myxoma constitutes the majority. The present study summarizes our 30-year clinical outcomes of surgical myxoma resection. METHODS: Between January 1986 and December 2015, 93 patients (30 men, 63 women; mean age, 54.7 ± 16.6 years) underwent surgical myxoma resection. The most common origin site was the left atrium. Surgery was performed via a biatrial approach in 74.2%, atrial septotomy through right atriotomy in 17...

Objective: To investigate the clinicopathologic features of cardiac myxofibrosarcomas. Methods: The clinical data, pathomorphologic and immunohistochemical features were evaluated in five cases of cardiac myxofibrosarcoma collected from January 2009 to December 2014, with relevant literature review. Results: Five patients with cardiac myxofibrosarcoma, including four women and one man [age range 39-61 years; mean (50.4±9.0) years] were included. All tumors were broadbased and located mainly in the left atrium, with one case extending through the atrial wall and pericardium to the left lower lung lobe...

We report a case of a 48-year-old female who presented initially with an abrupt onset of left facial and hand numbness after her routine yoga with no associated syncope, palpitation, chest pain or dyspnea. She consulted her primary care physician and recommended hospital care for possible stroke. On the day of admission, she complained of left facial and hand hemiparesthesia. Cranial imaging and angiography were unremarkable but echocardiography and cardiac computed tomography revealed left atrial mass. She underwent resection of the left atrial mass with an incidental finding of patent foramen ovale intraoperatively...

A 66-year-old female patient was referred to our hospital for resection of a right atrial mass. Four months earlier, she had suffered an acute cerebrovascular accident due to occlusion of the sylvian segment of the right middle cerebral artery from atheromatous tight stenosis in the right internal carotid artery. Later, investigations with transthoracic and transesophageal echocardiography revealed a 3.4-cm right atrial mass that was resected surgically. Microscopic evaluation revealed a well-circumscribed nodular tumor, located within the interatrial septum, and corresponding to an angioleiomyoma (ALM)...

Primary tumors of the heart are rare. The majority of them are benign, the left atrial myxoma being the most frequent one. Clinical appearance varies from unapparent to life-threatening complications such as stroke, acute heart failure, or even sudden death. Diagnosis and consecutive surgical treatment strongly depend on the clinical symptoms, but their extent does not correlate with the risk for serious complications. Therefore, patients with variable clinical presentation can be especially endangered. Consequent diagnostic and immediate operative therapy is essential...

BACKGROUND: Although the primary role of Cardiac Computed Tomography (CCT) is assessment of the coronary arteries, the technique also allows detailed examination of cardiac structures and other cardiac pathologies including cardiac myxoma. However, limited data exists regarding the CCT characteristics of cardiac myxoma. OBJECTIVE: To describe the radiological characteristics of a series of cardiac myxomas in CCT. METHODS: We retrospectively identified all patients at our tertiary urban referral centre with cardiac myxoma on CCT over a seven-year period between July 2008 and July 2015...
