Tumors in any part of the heart. They include primary cardiac tumors and metastatic tumors to the heart. Their interference with normal cardiac functions can cause a wide variety of symptoms including HEART FAILURE; CARDIAC ARRHYTHMIAS; or EMBOLISM.
The hollow, muscular organ that maintains the circulation of the blood.
The number of times the HEART VENTRICLES contract per unit of time, usually per minute.
A heterogeneous condition in which the heart is unable to pump out sufficient blood to meet the metabolic need of the body. Heart failure can be caused by structural defects, functional abnormalities (VENTRICULAR DYSFUNCTION), or a sudden overload beyond its capacity. Chronic heart failure is more common than acute heart failure which results from sudden insult to cardiac function, such as MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION.
Pathological conditions involving the HEART including its structural and functional abnormalities.
Tumors or cancer of the PANCREAS. Depending on the types of ISLET CELLS present in the tumors, various hormones can be secreted: GLUCAGON from PANCREATIC ALPHA CELLS; INSULIN from PANCREATIC BETA CELLS; and SOMATOSTATIN from the SOMATOSTATIN-SECRETING CELLS. Most are malignant except the insulin-producing tumors (INSULINOMA).
The transference of a heart from one human or animal to another.
Developmental abnormalities involving structures of the heart. These defects are present at birth but may be discovered later in life.
New abnormal growth of tissue. Malignant neoplasms show a greater degree of anaplasia and have the properties of invasion and metastasis, compared to benign neoplasms.

Two or more abnormal growths of tissue occurring simultaneously and presumed to be of separate origin. The neoplasms may be histologically the same or different, and may be found in the same or different sites.
Impaired conduction of cardiac impulse that can occur anywhere along the conduction pathway, such as between the SINOATRIAL NODE and the right atrium (SA block) or between atria and ventricles (AV block). Heart blocks can be classified by the duration, frequency, or completeness of conduction block. Reversibility depends on the degree of structural or functional defects.
Tumors or cancers of the KIDNEY.
Abnormal growths of tissue that follow a previous neoplasm but are not metastases of the latter. The second neoplasm may have the same or different histological type and can occur in the same or different organs as the previous neoplasm but in all cases arises from an independent oncogenic event. The development of the second neoplasm may or may not be related to the treatment for the previous neoplasm since genetic risk or predisposing factors may actually be the cause.

Neoplasms associated with a proliferation of a single clone of PLASMA CELLS and characterized by the secretion of PARAPROTEINS.
Tumors or cancer of the LIVER.
A disorder of cardiac function caused by insufficient blood flow to the muscle tissue of the heart. The decreased blood flow may be due to narrowing of the coronary arteries (CORONARY ARTERY DISEASE), to obstruction by a thrombus (CORONARY THROMBOSIS), or less commonly, to diffuse narrowing of arterioles and other small vessels within the heart. Severe interruption of the blood supply to the myocardial tissue may result in necrosis of cardiac muscle (MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION).

Proteins whose abnormal expression (gain or loss) are associated with the development, growth, or progression of NEOPLASMS. Some neoplasm proteins are tumor antigens (ANTIGENS, NEOPLASM), i.e. they induce an immune reaction to their tumor. Many neoplasm proteins have been characterized and are used as tumor markers (BIOMARKERS, TUMOR) when they are detectable in cells and body fluids as monitors for the presence or growth of tumors. Abnormal expression of ONCOGENE PROTEINS is involved in neoplastic transformation, whereas the loss of expression of TUMOR SUPPRESSOR PROTEINS is involved with the loss of growth control and progression of the neoplasm.
Studies used to test etiologic hypotheses in which inferences about an exposure to putative causal factors are derived from data relating to characteristics of persons under study or to events or experiences in their past. The essential feature is that some of the persons under study have the disease or outcome of interest and their characteristics are compared with those of unaffected persons.
A malignant cystic or semisolid tumor most often occurring in the ovary. Rarely, one is solid. This tumor may develop from a mucinous cystadenoma, or it may be malignant at the onset. The cysts are lined with tall columnar epithelial cells; in others, the epithelium consists of many layers of cells that have lost normal structure entirely. In the more undifferentiated tumors, one may see sheets and nests of tumor cells that have very little resemblance to the parent structure. (Hughes, Obstetric-Gynecologic Terminology, 1972, p184)

Echocardiographic diagnosis of large fungal verruca attached to mitral valve. (1/1025)

In a patient with endocarditis due to Candida tropicalis echocardiograms from mitral valve vegetations were found to mimic the typical pattern of a left atrial myxoma. A mass was shown occupying the mitral orifice posterior to the anterior mitral leaflet; densities also appeared in the left atrium. Though these echocardiographic findings were consistent with the diagnosis of a left atrial myxoma, there were other distinctive differential diagnostic features. Other diagnostic possibilities must, therefore, be considered in the interpretation of echocardiograms which suggest left atrial tumour.  (+info)

Symptomatic mitral myxomatous transformation in the elderly. (2/1025)

The clinical and pathological features of four patients with intractable heart failure, due to myxomatous change in the mitral valve, are described. It is suggested that this change may represent a response of ageing connective tissue to mechanical stress.  (+info)

Primary right atrial angiosarcoma mimicking acute pericarditis, pulmonary embolism, and tricuspid stenosis. (3/1025)

A 29 year old white man presented to the emergency room with new onset pleuritic chest pain and shortness of breath. He was initially diagnosed as having viral pericarditis and was treated with non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. A few weeks later he developed recurrent chest pain with cough and haemoptysis. Chest radiography, cardiac examination, transthoracic and transoesophageal echocardiography pointed to a mass that arose from the posterior wall of the right atrium, not attached to the interatrial septum, which protruded into the lumen of the right atrium causing intermittent obstruction of inflow across the tricuspid valve. Contrast computed tomography of the chest showed a right atrial mass extending to the anterior chest wall. The lung fields were studded with numerous pulmonary nodules suggestive of metastases. A fine needle aspiration of the pulmonary nodule revealed histopathology consistent with spindle cell sarcoma thought to originate in the right atrium. Immunohistochemical stains confirmed that this was an angiosarcoma. There was no evidence of extracardiac origin of the tumour. The patient was treated with chemotherapy and radiation. This case highlights the clinical presentation, rapid and aggressive course of cardiac angiosarcomas, and the diagnostic modalities available for accurate diagnosis.  (+info)

Dystrophic calcification of the fetal myocardium. (4/1025)

Intramural cardiac masses were detected antenatally in three fetuses by echocardiography. The masses were initially thought to be rhabdomyomas. All three pregnancies were terminated and histology showed dystrophic calcification in all, with no evidence of tumour. Therefore, dystrophic calcification of the fetal myocardium may have a similar appearance to single or multiple rhabdomyomas. This should be considered when counselling parents after detection of masses in the fetal heart, particularly when considering the risk of associated tuberous sclerosis.  (+info)

Primary cardiac Kaposi's sarcoma. (5/1025)

We report the clinical, laboratory, and necropsy findings in a 14-year-old boy with a primary Kaposi's sarcoma of the heart. Primary cardiac Kaposi's sarcoma and angiosarcoma are compared, and the pathogenesis of Kaposi's sarcoma is discussed. Relevant literature is briefly reviewed.  (+info)

Localized pericarditis with calcifications mimicking a pericardial tumor. (6/1025)

A 62-year-old man was admitted with increasing palpitations. Radiography of the chest demonstrated a calcified mass. Magnetic resonance imaging revealed compression of the right ventricle by a tumor. At the time of cardiac catheterization, the coronary arteries were found not to supply blood flow of the mass, and no dip-and-plateau pattern was seen in the right ventricular pressure measurements. At the time of surgery, the mass was found to be a focal calcified thickening of the pericardium containing only pus. The thickening resembled an oval pericardial tumor. Microbiologic examination of the pus revealed Propionibacterium acnes.  (+info)

In utero diagnosis of cardiac hemangioma. (7/1025)

Fetal cardiac hemangioma is rarely diagnosed prenatally. We present here a fetus with such a tumor diagnosed at 28 weeks' gestation. With the use of fetal echocardiography, a mixed echogenic mass protruding outward from the right atrial wall was observed. Moderate amounts of pericardial effusion were also found. Although no apparent blood flow signal was detected in the mass, fetal echocardiography showed signs suggestive of a hemangioma. Differential diagnosis, management and prognosis are discussed.  (+info)

Expression of nm23 in the primary tumor and the metastatic regional lymph nodes of patients with gastric cardiac cancer. (8/1025)

Tumor recurrence and distant metastasis are major causes of treatment failure in gastric cardiac cancer (GCC). Rapid growth of tumor cells and reduced expression of nm23, a metastatic suppressor gene, in tumor cells have been suggested as two important mechanisms for disease progression of GCC. Therefore, to determine the prognostic value of nm23 expression in GCC, we used immunohistochemistry to examine the expression of nm23 in the pathological sections of both gastric cancer and metastatic lymph nodes from 24 stage III patients. Twenty-two patients had total gastrectomy, and two patients had proximal subtotal gastrectomy with a D2 dissection. Postoperative adjuvant therapy was provided, and the clinical responses were followed routinely. Clinical correlation was evaluated by chi2 with Fisher's exact test and survival by log-rank test. Our results show that the reduced nm23 expression in the primary tumor and in the nodal metastasis is the most useful marker for the poor prognosis of GCC following surgery.  (+info)

Heart transplantation is an uncommon treatment for unresectable and non-metastatic primary cardiac sarcomas, and the role of it is unclear. This study aims to offer a survival analysis of it. This study consists of 6 patients from our institution and 40 patients identified in a literature search who underwent heart transplantation for non-metastatic primary cardiac sarcomas. Seven patients with unresectable cardiac angiosarcoma who received palliative therapies at our institution were included for comparison. All the clinicopathologic data were collected, retrospectively reviewed and statistically analyzed. Among the 46 patients receiving heart transplantation for primary cardiac sarcomas, the overall median survival was 16 months (2-112 months). The most common histologic type receiving heart transplantation was angiosarcoma. Its median survival time after heart transplantation (n = 14) was much less than that of other histologic types (n = 31) (9 vs 36 months; P = 0.002), which means it was not
Cardiac Sarcoma What is cardiac sarcoma? Cardiac sarcoma is a type of tumor that occurs in the heart. Cardiac sarcoma is a primary malignant (cancerous) tumor. Tumors are considered to be either primary tumors or secondary tumors. A primary tumor is the original site of tumor growth. A secondary tumor originates from another tumor elsewhere in the body. Primary tumors of the heart are rare, and most are benign (non-cancerous). What are the symptoms of cardiac sarcoma? The symptoms of heart tumors will v...
Cardiac sarcomas are uncommon tumours. Approximately 25% of primary cardiac tumours are malignant and of these about 75% are sarcomas. In a large reported series angiosarcoma was the commonest (37%) followed by malignant fibrous histiocytoma (MFH) 24%, leiomyosarcoma 9%, rhabdomyosarcoma 7%, unclassified 7%, others 16% [5]. Angiosarcoma tends to be commoner in the right atrium and ventricle and MFH is commoner on the left side. These highly malignant tumours rapidly infiltrate all layers of the heart and metastasise widely. Hence up to 80% of patients have evidence of metastasis at the time of presentation [4].. The mean age of presentation is around 40 years [6] with no sex predilection. Rarely it can present in infancy and childhood [7]. Patients present after variable periods of symptoms which are often non-specific, ranging from few weeks to several months and almost all are symptomatic at presentation. The symptoms depend on the location and the extent of tumour. They manifest by one of the ...

Primary cardiac tumors are rare, with atrial myxomas accounting for the vast majority of cases (1). These primary tumors are most often intracavitary, leading to obstruction and arrhythmias. In comparison to primary tumors, metastatic cardiac neoplasms occur more frequently (1, 2). However, the intracavitary growth of these tumors is less common, and therefore the patients may be asymptomatic and are only found to have cardiac involvement during post mortem examinations (1). Another entity that can mimic intracavitary cardiac mass is thrombus formation (2). Every malignant tumor in the body has the potential to metastasize to the heart, the commonest being malignant melanoma, carcinomas of the lung, breast, esophagus, angiosarcoma, lymphoma and leukemia (1-3). The pathways for spread of cardiac metastases include direct contiguous extension, lymphatic or hematogeneous spread and much less commonly through transvenous spreading. The lymphatic spreading of tumors usually appear in the form of ...
Cardiac involvement with lymphoma was the most significant clinical and pathological process in our patient. Our case fits into the broader clinical definition of primary cardiac lymphoma.1 The incidence of cardiac lymphoma in postmortem examination is low, with a reported range of 0.15% to 1%. Secondary cardiac infiltration from nodal lymphoma of the mediastinum appears to be more common in clinical practice.2 In the past, most cases were discovered in postmortem examination.3,4 Recently, case reports were dominated by antemortem diagnosis and chemotherapy.5 DLBCL accounts for 30% to 40% of all adult non-Hodgkin lymphomas. DLBCL is, however, the most common type of primary cardiac lymphoma. Eighty percent of the case reports and 60% of autopsy series revealed DLBCL.1. Most cases of cardiac lymphoma are solid, infiltrative nodule tumors in 1 or multiple chambers of the heart. The right heart is the most common site of cardiac lymphoma. Lymphomatous infiltration of the pericardium is also seen in ...
Cardiac neoplasms can be separated into primary or secondary and whilst the latter are more common, most surgical resections are for primary tumours..

Best atrial intracardiac tumours have emerged during echocardiography uncommonly. Caucasian woman provided IC-87114 cost to the immediate care medical clinic with the principle complaint of lowering vitality, palpitations, dyspnoea, and bloating of the true face and throat. Face swelling was regarded as due to angio-oedema initially. Pertinent results on physical evaluation uncovered a markedly raised jugular venous pressure that didnt vary with position and ITGA9 a musical quality 3/6 systolic murmur heard best in the pulmonary area suggestive of compression of the right ventricular outflow region. In addition, there was clearly a continuous murmur (grade 2/6) heard in the right subclavicular area near the sternum. In the medical center (ECG) showed sinus tachycardia and the chest x-ray showed mediastinal widening (number 1). Owing to these x-ray findings, the patient was scheduled for any chest CT and an echocardiogram. On echocardiography, there was a large (3730?mm) irregular sound and ...
Movie 3) First Pass Perfusion Image 4. Perspective: Renal cell carcinoma typically presents with painless hematuria and flank mass. Prognosis depends on tumor staging and presence of metastases. Cardiac metastasis of renal cell cancer is not uncommon. There are two common modes of cardiac metastasis: contigous extension through the renal vein and inferior vena cava into the right heart chambers and metastasis by diffuse systemic spread (1, 2). Although contigous extension from the inferior vena cava is common, direct distant metastasis are not uncommon (3, 4). Transthoracic echocardiography is the first diagnostic tool in the assessment of patients with suspected cardiac metastasis of renal cell carcinoma. CMR compliments the echocardiography and the CT with its wider field of view and the ability to characterize tissue (2). CMR should be used to localize the extent of primary tumor within the inferior vena cava and in the cardiac chambers. CMRs unique tissue characterization qualities can ...
Primary cardiac tumors are very uncommon. Seventy five percent of them are benign tumors and these are mostly myxomas. The malignant cardiac tumors, the majority of which are undifferentiated sarcomas, comprise up to 25% of all cardiac tumors. A primary malignant sarcoma of the myocardium is exceedingly rare. Thus, there have been very few such cases reported in the literature. We present here a case of a 15 year old man who had complaints of orthopnea and increasing exercise intolerance over a one month period. Transthoracic echocardiography demonstrated a well demarcated huge mass with left ventricular inflow obstruction on the posterior wall of the left atrium. The patients symptoms were relieved by surgery. The histological diagnosis was an unclassified spindle cell sarcoma ...

Cardiac tumors may be primary or secondary, may be related to the heart muscle or pericardium, or may be direct extensions of primary tumors or metastases from adjacent structures. In general, primary cardiac tumors are of mesothelial or epithelial origin.
The symptoms of heart tumors will vary, depending on the location of the tumor. Tumors of the heart may occur on the outside surface of the heart, within one or more chambers of the heart (intracavitary), or within the muscle tissue of the heart.. Cardiac sarcomas, most frequently, are a type of sarcoma called angiosarcoma. Most angiosarcomas occur in the right atrium resulting in obstruction of the inflow or outflow of blood. This obstruction may cause symptoms such as swelling of the feet, legs, ankles, and/or abdomen, and distension of the neck veins, because the blood coming back to the heart after traveling through the body cannot easily enter or be pumped out of the right atrium.. Cardiac angiosarcomas that occur on the pericardium can cause increased fluid in the pericardial sac, the thin covering that surrounds the heart. If enough fluid accumulates within the pericardial sac, the hearts ability to pump blood is affected. Some signs of this occurrence may include chest pain, shortness ...

A 60-year-old male presented with a 2-day history of progressive dyspnea. Three months prior to presentation, he was diagnosed with a left calf undifferentiated pleomorphic sarcoma. He had known pulmonary and bony metastases and was receiving systemic chemotherapy with doxorubicin. Physical examination revealed tachypnea, tachycardia, and a left calf mass. A computed tomography (CT) of the chest revealed new bilateral small pulmonary emboli (yellow arrow) and a right ventricular (RV) mass (Figure 1, red arrow). A transthoracic echocardiogram (TTE) showed a large solid mass (arrow) that obliterated the RV apex (Figure 2). Cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) confirmed the presence of a gadolinium-enhancing mass consistent with metastasis (Figure 3, arrows). The patient was started on anticoagulation for pulmonary embolism and on a new line of chemotherapy with gemcitabine and docetaxel.. Whereas primary cardiac tumors are rare and mostly benign, metastatic cardiac involvement is silent and occurs in ...
Myxoma is the commonest intracardiac tumour and it is well known to present in bizarre ways, particularly when on the right side of the heart. The frequency of serious co-existent disease is striking and adds to the difficulty of diagnosis. Calcification of the tumour is uncommon, though probably more frequent in right than in left heart tumours; massive calcification is rare. Diagnosis can be followed by surgery with very satisfactory results. The purpose of this paper is to present the case of an enormous, grossly calcified mass in the right atrium which extended down into the inferior vena cava and was associated with large calcified deposits in the main pulmonary artery and in the lungs. Although no recognizable myxoma tissue remained there is strong evidence that this was, in fact, a burnt-out myxoma. The patient also had chronic pyelonephritis and hepatic cirrhosis. The difficulty of diagnosis is discussed and the literature on calcified atrial myxomata is reviewed.

Cardiac tumors are described as abnormal growths in the heart or cardiac valve tissue. Tumors originating from the hearts tissue are actually not common. Tumors developed in the heart as a result of cancer spreading to the heart from the organ where it started (metastasis) and the masses formed directly from the hearts tissue are different. Metastasis-induced tumors are 20 to 40 times more common. Metastatic cardiac tumors are more common in lung cancer, lymphoma, leukemia, breast cancer, and esophageal cancer. Involvement occurs most often in the pericardium which surrounds the heart. Then, metastases to the myocardium, or cardiac muscle, can be seen. Sometimes melanoma and rarely sarcomas, which are soft tissue cancers, can spread to the cardiac muscle through the blood.. The most common symptom in cardiac tumors is excessive fluid accumulation in the heart sac, which is called pericardial effusion. Primary tumors are tumors that occur within the heart and remain confined to the heart. ...

OBJECTIVE: This article reviews the optimal cardiac MRI sequences for and the spectrum of imaging appearances of cardiac tumors. CONCLUSION: Recent technologic advances in cardiac MRI have resulted in the rapid acquisition of images of the heart with high spatial and temporal resolution and excellent myocardial tissue characterization. Cardiac MRI provides optimal assessment of the location, functional characteristics, and soft-tissue features of cardiac tumors, allowing accurate differentiation of benign and malignant lesions ...
Important features of cardiac masses can be clearly delineated on cardiac computed tomography (CT) imaging. This modality is useful in identifying the presence of a mass, its relationship with cardiac and extracardiac structures, and the features that distinguish one type of mass from another. A multimodality approach to the evaluation of cardiac tumors is advocated, with the use of echocardiography, CT imaging and magnetic resonance imaging as appropriately indicated. In this article, various cardiac masses are described, including pseudotumors and true cardiac neoplasms, and the CT imaging findings that may be useful in distinguishing these rare entities are presented.
If a tumor, or a foreign growth of tissue, develops in the heart, it is known as a heart or cardiac tumor. Tumors can develop on the heart tissue (primary, or myxoma) or start elsewhere in the body and spread to the heart (secondary). Some cause cancer (malignant), and some do not (benign).

The specimen is of a markedly enlarged, pale heart with some subepicardial blood-staining and nodularity. The paleness and increase in size of heart is mostly due to increase in epicardial fat. Externally the region of the right ventricle is distorted and posteriorly there is narrowing of the right ventricular cavity. Again, posteriorly, the left ventricle has been sectioned and white tumour tissue may be seen invading the epicardial fat. There is associated patchy haemorrhage. Tumour tissue can also be seen in the myocardium. Although this specimen is not very satisfactory from the demonstration point of view, it shows secondary anaplastic carcinoma of the pericardium and myocardium. The origin of the carcinoma is unknown. ...

mNav2.3 - a NaCh isoform that was investigated by cloning of a full-length cDNA from the mouse AT-1 atrial tumor cell line [891] - is overall 68% identical to hNav2.1 with similar sequence in functionally relevant regions such as pore-forming segments, positively charged S4 segments, and inactivation gate sequence. Analysis of the mNav2.3 mRNA expression during cardiac and skeletal muscle development indicates tight developmental control over gene expression while transcript levels in uterus during pregnancy vary and dramatically decrease following delivery. Taken together, these data indicate that the Na2 subfamily is conserved across species and likely to play important physiological roles in cardiac and uterine muscle. [872] ...

Primary cardiac lymphomas (PCL) represent extremely rare cardiac tumors which are accompanied by poor prognosis, unless they are timely diagnosed and treated. Herein we present a 28-year-old, immunocompetent man who presented to our hospital due to progressively worsening symptoms and signs of superior vena cava syndrome. Multi-modality imaging demonstrated a large intracardiac tumor, which was proven, by biopsy, to be a PCL. The patient received targeted chemotherapy which led to total remission of his disease, with no relapse over a 15-month follow-up period. Although PCLs are rare, they should always be kept in mind in the differential diagnosis of cardiac tumors. Timely diagnosis of PCLs and appropriate chemotherapy, alone or in combination with radiotherapy, seems to provide the best results.
A myxoma is a primary heart (cardiac) tumor. This means that the tumor started within the heart. Most heart tumors start somewhere else.. Primary cardiac tumors are rare. Myxomas are the most common type of these rare tumors. About 75% of myxomas occur in the left atrium of the heart. They most often begin in the wall that divides the two upper chambers of the heart. The rest are in the right atrium. Right atrial myxomas are sometimes linked with tricuspid stenosis and atrial fibrillation ...

A myxoma is the most common primary tumor of the heart. It has been reported as the source of a cardiogenic embolism. Therefore, it is important for clinicians to detect the myxoma early via echocardiography to prevent complications, such as syncope, sudden death, and cerebral embolic ischemic stroke. This report presents the case of a 54-year-old female whose clinical manifestation of atrial myxoma was an ischemic stroke. Atrial myxoma was later confirmed as the cause of her symptoms via transesophageal echocardiography.
Cardiac myxoma are the most common benign primary cardiac tumors that can lead to many complications as described in literature. Here we report the case of a boy aged 11 that was referred for etiological diagnosis of ischemic stroke. Transthoracic echocardiography reveals a myxoma in the left atrium. Patient was referred to surgery. The diagnosis was confirmed and the mass was completely resected.
Cardiac myxomas are the most common benign intracardiac tumour, and are more common in women. Since many patients suffer from cerebral or systemic embolism, early diagnosis is vital to plan for surgical intervention. Surgical excision is advocated as soon as possible, particularly in left atrial myxoma, because of the high risk of valvular obstruction and systemic embolisation. Patients with a family history of the disorder are at greater risk of tumour recurrence.. ...
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. A 76-year-old Japanese man presented to our hospital with weakness in his right upper extremity. He had a history of right frontal lobe infarction in the previous month. T2-weighted magnetic resonance imaging revealed an area of hyperintensity in the left precentral gyrus, indicating acute cerebral infarction. Transthoracic echocardiography revealed normal left ventricular function and no abnormalities. However, transesophageal echocardiography showed a small and nonmobile left atrial tumor with round regular shape attached to the ostium secundum ...
Atrial myxomas are the most common primary neoplasms of the heart. Clinical presentation varies from asymptomatic incidental masses to serious life-threatening cardiovascular complications. We describe the case of a 37-year-old man who presented with both coronary and cerebral embolisation secondary to an atrial myxoma in the context of a recent normal transthoracic echocardiogram. ...
A 60 year-old male was referred for treatment of a cardiac myxoma in the right atrium. He had a past history of left atrial cardiac myxoma at age 49 and pituitary microadenoma related to acromegaly at age 55. 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. In genetic analysis novel frame shift mutation was detected in exon 2 in a heterozygous fashion in the causative gene of CNC, protein kinase A regulatory subunit 1 α (PRKAR1A). This genetic mutation is thought to cause haplo-insufficiency of PRKAR1A resulting in tumorigenesis. Although it is the most common, usually benign, cardiac tumor, myxoma can cause a critical clinical situation and thus detecting the PRKAR1A mutation can ...

A transoesophageal echocardiogram (upper panel, left) revealed a solid, round, and homogeneous tumour tending to prolapse through the mitral valve during diastole. An angiogram of the right pulmonary artery in the levophase (lower panel, left) showed the left heart structures and the mass (arrowheads). These findings were confirmed by magnetic resonance imaging (below, still frame of a steady state free precession (SSFP) cine sequence in the vertical long axis) (Ao, aorta; LA, left atrium; LV, left ventricle; MV, mitral valve; Myx, myxoma; PV, pulmonary veins; RA, right atrium; RV, right ventricle).. The patient was taken to the operating room for extirpation of the atrial tumour. A solid, round mass with a non-mobile surface was removed (upper and lower panels, right). The patients recovery was unremarkable. Anatomo-pathology confirmed the diagnosis of myxoma.. Myxoma is the most common type of primary cardiac tumour, and approximately 85% of myxomas develop in the left atrium.. ...

This study summarizes our surgical experiences with cardiac tumors. Methods. Between 1975 and 2003, 51 patients with cardiac tumors were surgically treated. Results. Myxomas. Forty-seven cardiac myxomas were excised in 46 patients with an average age of 51.7 ± 18 years. The preoperative symptoms included congestive heart failure (37%) and embolism (30%). The incidence of preoperative embolization was significantly higher in the gelatinous and lobated myxomas than in the solid and smooth form (P = 0.017). The early mortality rate was 2.2%. Although the late mortality rate was 9.7%, no patients died from cardiological causes (mean ...
Primary cardiac myxofibrosarcoma is a very rare cardiac malignancy. The majority of publications are limited to case reports. No pooled analyses of primary cardiac myxofibrosarcoma cases are available. Little clinical features and outcome patterns are acknowledged. The purpose of this study is to identify the clinical characteristics and prognostic factors of primary cardiac myxofibrosarcoma. A case report of primary cardiac myxofibrosarcoma was presented, and a review of English language literatures of primary cardiac myxofibrosarcomas were performed electronically. Demographics, clinicopathologic data, therapy and follow-up were summarized. The median survival time and the mean survival time were calculated by Kaplan-Meier method. Survival distribution and overall survival were figured by log-rank test and cox proportional hazards models. We present a case, and retrospectively analyzed additional 30 patients derived from 24 isolated articles. The cohort consisted of 18 male and 13 female patients. The

This case report presents a diagnostic challenge involving a recently developed left atrial mass in which echocardiography and cardiac MRI provided discordant results. While the morphological characteristics of the new left atrial lesion were suggestive of myxoma, the signal characteristics and behavior following intravenous gadolinium at MR, and, in particular, the rapid interval appearance of the lesion, prompted consideration for left atrial thrombus. Subsequent intra-operative and histopathologic evaluation proved the mass to be a left atrial myxoma.. AB - ...

A middle age person underwent an uneventful left atrial myxoma resection many years ago, without any residual mass on follow-up transthoracic echocardiography (TTE) performed 1 year after. A few months later however, she complained of non-specific symptoms of fatigue, shortness of breath, and atypical chest pain. Symptoms such as fever, weight loss or neurological problems were denied. Physical examination, ECG and chest x-ray were normal. Repeat TTE (figure 1, video 1) depicted a sessile bi-lobar, non-obstructive and immobile mass in the left atrium, with suspected right atrium extension. A transoesophageal echocardiogram (TOE) confirmed the 11×9 mm slightly mobile mass attached posteriorly to the interatrial septum, on the left atrial side. A recurrent myxoma was suspected, but neither a thrombus nor a sarcoma could be excluded, given the rapid growth of this mass. CMR further delineated this left atrial irregular mass, originating from the interatrial septum, hypointense on T1 weighted and ...
Myxomas comprise 6% to 10% of primary cardiac tumors in childhood. Less than 10% of patients with cardiac myxomas are under 15 years of age. A large myxoma occupying in the right atrium and prolapsing into the right ventricle, pulmonary artery and producing tricuspid and pulmonary valve obstructions was diagnosed by Transthoracic 2D echocardiographic imaging in a 12-year-old male child.
The World Health Organization (WHO) defines a cardiac myxoma as a neoplasm composed of stellate to plump, cytologically bland mesenchymal cells set in a myxoid stroma.

General considerations and epidemiology Cardiac masses range from non-neoplastic lesions to high grade malignancies and occur over a wide range of ages. These tumours can be divided in non-neoplastic masses, which can mimic neoplasms on imaging; primary neoplasms, either benign or malignant; and metastatic tumours. The true incidence of primary cardiac tumours remains largely unknown,…
Pericardial tumours are unusual and may be difficult to characterise with imaging. They manifest as large, non-contractile, solid masses within the pericardium. Presenting symptoms include heart failure, arrythmias, sudden death, cyanosis and chest pain. We describe a case of massive pericardial fibroma in a 52 year old woman, who presented with palpitations only. We illustrate the different imaging modalities available to image this tumour prior to surgical resection, and indicate the strengths and weaknesses of each.

Penile cancer is a common malignancy in developing countries. It commonly metastasizes to the lymph nodes, lung, liver, and bones. Myocardial metastasis is rare. A 40-year-old male patient presented with ulcerative growth over glans penis. Histologic evaluation of the biopsy sample diagnosed the lesion as squamous cell cancer. Assessment of the stage of the disease revealed cardiac metastasis. Patient received six cycles of chemotherapy. He partially responded, but later succumbed to cardiac failure due to pericardial and pleural effusion.
Many cases of cardiac masses have been reported in the literature, but in this case report we described a rare case of biatrial cardiac mass that represented a challenge for diagnosis and therapy. The differentiation between cardiac masses such as thrombi, vegetations, myxomas and other tumors is not always straightforward and an exact diagnosis is important because of its distinct treatment strategy. Transthoracic/esophageal echocardiography and cardiac magnetic resonance play an important role in establishing the diagnosis of cardiac masses. However, no current noninvasive diagnostic tool has the ability to absolutely diagnose cardiac masses; obtaining a pathological specimen by surgical resection of cardiac masses is the only reliable method to diagnose cardiac masses accurately. Our case report is an exception in that the final diagnosis was affirmed by empirical anticoagulation therapy based on clinical judgment and noninvasive characterization of biatrial mass. We described a 54-year-old Malay man
