Objectives: Although echocardiography has traditionally been used to diagnose myxoma, invasive or non-invasive coronary angiography can be useful diagnostic tool before surgery. Methods: We present a case of an angiographically detected left atrial myxoma feeding from the left circumflex coronary artery. Results: The patient underwent open-heart surgery to remove the left atrial myxoma. After ligation of feeding artery, the mass was successfully excised...

Cardiac myxomas are the most common cardiac tumors with diverse nonspecific clinical manifestations. A 78-year-old man presented to the emergency department with complaints of pain and coldness of the left lower extremity. The left femoral artery pulse was detected, while the pulses of the left popliteal, dorsalis pedis, and posterior tibialis arteries were absent. No blood inflow was detected in the superficial and deep femoral, popliteal, and anterior and posterior tibialis arteries. Thrombectomy was performed, and a fatty-like mass from the bifurcation of the common femoral artery and a thrombotic mass from the proximal portion of the superficial and deep femoral arteries were removed...

Myxomas are the most common cardiac tumors, accounting for about 50% of benign primary cardiac tumors, with the majority located in the left atrium, and 80% of which originate in the interatrial septum. We report two cases with severe cachexia, neurological sequelae, and severe biventricle dysfunction secondary to atrial myxomas with marked early improvement after tumor excision.

BACKGROUND: Cardiac myxomas are the most frequent primary benign intracardiac tumors. We reviewed our 27-year experience to evaluate factors associated with an embolism in patients with cardiac myxomas and their long-term outcomes. METHODS: A retrospective review identified 99 patients with cardiac myxomas between 1985 and 2012. Tumors were divided into two groups based on their gross external features. Tumors with a smooth regular border and a solid consistency were classified as solid; papillary myxomas were characterized by an irregular and gelatinous exterior with friable, soft consistency...

Acute renal infarction (ARI) is an uncommon disease and delayed diagnosis or misdiagnosis often leads to rapid deterioration of the patient. As patients with atrial fibrillation and left atrial myxomas are at risk of developing ARI due to cardiogenic thromboembolism, it is pivotal for clinicians to make a correct diagnosis and start a timely treatment. The present study reported on the case of a 68-year-old man who suffered from ARI secondary to thromboembolism associated with atrial fibrillation and left atrial myxomas...

There are two types of tumors found in the cardiac chamber. These are divided into primary intra-cardiac tumors and secondary intra-cardiac tumors. Primary intra cardiac tumors are rare and among them 29% are myxomas. Majority of them are found in the left atrium. Here, we report a case of a myxoma in the right atrium with hepatomegaly and Hepatitis B virus infection. The coexistence of all these conditions is very rare. A 52 years old patient presented with history of shortness of breath on exertion along with fever and generalized weakness for 6 months which aggravated lately for last 2 months...

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...

Cardiac myxomas are rare clinical findings. They are frequently found in the left atrium and more commonly affect women. Clinical presentation can vary widely and symptoms can be vague and non-specific. We present a case of a 67-year-old woman presenting with 3 weeks of progressive heart failure symptoms that failed to respond to oral diuretic therapy. On physical exam, she was found to have a diastolic murmur, rumble and an early diastolic plop. Transthoracic echocardiogram revealed a 5.6 cm × 2.5 cm × 4...

Carney Complex (CNC) is a multiple neoplasia syndrome characterized by skin tumors and pigmented lesions, myxomas, and various endocrine tumors. The aim of this case report was to describe a case of CNC with a novel PRKAR1A mutation. A man aged 46 years with a medical history of surgery for cardiac myxomas at the age of 39 was admitted to our hospital because of four newly-developed heart masses. The histologic examination confirmed cardiac myxomas. He had many presentations of CNC such as growth hormone (GH) and prolactin (PRL)-secreting mixed pituitary adenoma, benign thyroid nodule, large-cell calcifying Sertoli cell tumor (LCCST), and superficial angiomyxoma...

BACKGROUND: Atrial myxoma accounts for approximately 50% of all cardiac tumors. The majority of myxomas are located in the left atrium and present variable clinical manifestation. CASE PRESENTATION: A young man was transferred to our hospital with sudden onset of resting pain, pallor and numb in right leg. An atrial mobile mass was detected by transthoracic echocardiography. Anticoagulant and antithrombotic therapy were administered, a timely surgery was performed and the mass was confirmed as a myxoma...

The development of left atrial myxoma after coronary artery bypass graft surgery is a rare entity. A 60-year-old man with previous off-pump coronary artery bypass grafting four years ago with patent coronary grafts was diagnosed with left atrial mass. The patient underwent successful resection of the same through minimally invasive right anterolateral thoracotomy. Histopathology of the atrial mass confirmed the diagnosis of atrial myxoma.

We present a case of an intensely hypermetabolic intracavitary cardiac mass, standardized uptake values max 44.4, that was pathologically proved to be organizing and organized thrombus, negative for tumor. Our patient had previous right atrial mass resection 2 years prior that was pathologically described as either thrombus or infarcted atrial myxoma. She had since been on lifelong controlled anticoagulation; and on routine follow-up imaging, she had recurrent slow growth of a new right atrial mass. During a later hospital admission for chest pain, the mass was evaluated on both transthoracic and transesophageal echo cardiogram, which could not differentiate thrombus vs neoplasm...

Left atrial myxomas are the most common type of benign primary cardiac tumor. Patients can present with generalized symptoms, such as fatigue, symptoms from obstruction of the myxoma, or even embolization of the myxoma causing distal thrombosis. We describe a case with several-month duration of syncopal episodes that occurred after coughing and with exertion. Computed tomography of the chest showed a 6.1 cm by 4.5 cm mass in the left atrium, later evaluated with an echocardiogram. Cardiothoracic surgery removed the mass, and it was determined to be an atrial myxoma...

Pulmonary vein thrombosis (PVT) is a challenging diagnosis and has been described in association with or as a complication of pulmonary tumors, lung surgeries, atrial myxoma, and after radiofrequency catheter ablation for atrial fibrillation. There are not many reported cases of PVT associated with medication use. We present a case of a 53-year-old male with a history of severe persistent asthma on omalizumab, who presented with shortness of breath and was found to have PVT on computed tomography scan of the chest...
