Atrial myxomas arise from multipotent cardiac stem cells.

Eur Heart J 2020 Apr 24. Epub 2020 Apr 24.

Department of Experimental and Clinical Medicine, Molecular and Cellular Cardiology, Magna Graecia University, Viale Europa, 88100 Catanzaro, Italy.

Aims: Cardiac myxomas usually develop in the atria and consist of an acid-mucopolysaccharide-rich myxoid matrix with polygonal stromal cells scattered throughout. These human benign tumours are a valuable research model because of the rarity of cardiac tumours, their clinical presentation and uncertain origin. Here, we assessed whether multipotent cardiac stem/progenitor cells (CSCs) give rise to atrial myxoma tissue. Read More

Persistent left superior vena cava in patient with right atrial myxoma undergoing open heart surgery. A case report and review of literature.

Saudi J Anaesth 2020 Apr-Jun;14(2):217-220. Epub 2020 Mar 5.

Department of Cardiac Surgery, King Fahd Cardiac Center, College of Medicine, King Saud University Medical City, Riyadh, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

Persistent left superior vena cava (PLSVC) is a rare and asymptomatic congenital cardiovascular anomaly. Being asymptomatic, PLSVC was usually discovered while performing interventions (such as insertion of central lines, Swan-Ganz catheters, or placing pacemakers) through the left internal jugular vein or left subclavian veins. Commonly, PLSVC is detected not only as an isolated congenital anomaly, but also it can be associated with many other cardiac anomalies. Read More

Chronic lymphocytic leukemia focus in the context of a cardiac mass in a pretreated patient: an exceptional incidental finding.

Tumori 2020 Mar 12:300891620909421. Epub 2020 Mar 12.

Institute of Haematology "L. e A. Seràgnoli," University of Bologna, Bologna, Italy.

Background: B-cell chronic lymphocytic leukemia (B-CLL) is a lymphoproliferative disorder consisting of clonal proliferation and accumulation of small, mature, CD5-positive B-lymphocytes in the blood, bone marrow, and lymphoid tissues. Among extranodal localizations, cardiac involvement is extremely rare: to our knowledge, there are no findings reported in the literature of concomitant B-CLL diagnosis in the context of atrial myxoma (so-called collision tumours) and the best strategy to treat these malignancies is unclear.

Case Report: We report the case of a 67-year-old woman diagnosed with B-CLL and atrial myxoma. Read More

A right atrial myxoma presenting with misleading features of acalculous cholecystitis.

Oxf Med Case Reports 2020 Feb 28;2020(2):omaa012. Epub 2020 Feb 28.

Third Department of Internal Medicine, Evaggelismos General Hospital, Athens, Greece.

Diffuse thickening, a layered appearance of the gallbladder wall and the accumulation of surrounding fluid are considered as sensitive and relatively specific imaging findings of gallbladder inflammation. In the absence of gallstones, the diagnosis of acalculous cholecystitis can be further supported by the presence of fever, epigastric pain, right upper abdominal quadrant (RUQ) tenderness on inspiration and elevated markers of inflammation. In this report, we describe a 35-year-old schoolteacher who presented with all of the above clinical, laboratory and imaging findings that were eventually attributed to gallbladder oedema and liver congestion (abdominal imaging and RUQ tenderness) caused by an atrial myxoma interfering, with the atrioventricular circulation of the right heart and causing constitutional manifestations (fever and elevated markers of inflammation).

Atrial Myxoma, a Rare Cause of Sudden Cardiac Death: A Case Report and Review of Literature.

Cureus 2020 Jan 19;12(1):e6704. Epub 2020 Jan 19.

Internal Medicine, University of Central Florida College of Medicine, Ocala, USA.

Despite the huge improvement in cardiovascular care over the past several decades and the decline in cardiovascular deaths, sudden cardiac death (SCD) continues to present a nationwide health problem accounting to more than half of all deaths from cardiovascular disease. Majority of these cases are related to coronary artery disease and arrhythmias, however, a very small number of these cases are secondary to cardiac neoplasms. These neoplasms commonly present with conduction abnormalities or symptoms secondary to valvular disease such as dyspnea, orthopnea, cough and/or edema. Read More

Somatic PRKAR1A mutation in sporadic atrial myxoma with cerebral parenchymal metastases: a case report.

J Med Case Rep 2019 Dec 25;13(1):389. Epub 2019 Dec 25.

Departments of Pathology, Yale University School of Medicine, 310 Cedar Street, P.O. Box 208023, New Haven, CT, 06520-8023, USA.

Background: Atrial myxomas are generally considered benign neoplasms. The majority of tumors are sporadic and less than 10% are associated with an autosomal dominant condition known as the Carney complex, which is most often caused by germline mutation in the gene PRKAR1A. Whether this gene plays a role in the development of sporadic myxomas has been an area of debate, although recent studies have suggested that some fraction of sporadic tumors also carry mutations in PRKARIA.

Cardiac myxoma is the most frequently encountered primary neoplasm of the heart; however, other tumefactive lesions can share similar radiologic features. We present briefly the case of a 69-year-old man incidentally found to have a mobile right atrial mass that based on initial radiologic findings was considered to represent a myxoma. After pathologic examination, the lesion was determined instead to be a cardiac varix: an endocardial, blood filled cystic space lined by endothelium and considered to represent a dilated vein.

Pulmonary embolism as the initial manifestation of right atrial myxoma: A case report and review of the literature.

Medicine (Baltimore) 2019 Dec;98(51):e18386

Department of Respiratory Diseases.

Rationale: Pulmonary embolisms (PEs) are caused by emboli, which mostly originate from deep venous thrombi that travel to and suddenly block the pulmonary arteries. The emboli are usually thrombi, and right atrial myxoma emboli are rare.

Patient Concerns: A 55-year-old man presented with shortness of breath and syncope. Read More

Left atrial myxoma: Unusual presentation as a cystic tumor.

J Card Surg 2020 Feb 19;35(2):511-513. Epub 2019 Dec 19.

Department of Cardiac Surgery, Allianz Herzchirurgie Zurich, Triemli Hospital, Zurich, Switzerland.

Myxomas are the most common cardiac tumors, benign, and usually located in the left atrium. Typically echocardiography reveals a solid tumor, whereas cystic myxomas are rare with only a few cases documented in the literature. We describe the case of a 63-year-old, female patient with an unusual presentation of a left atrial myxoma as a cystic tumor. Read More

Hemolytic Anemia and Reactive Thrombocytosis Associated With Cefoperazone/Sulbactam.

Front Pharmacol 2019 8;10:1342. Epub 2019 Nov 8.

Department of Pharmacy, The First Affiliated Hospital of Soochow University, Soochow University, Suzhou, China.

Cefoperazone/sulbactam is a broad-spectrum antibacterial agent. Drug-induced immune hemolytic anemia is a rare but serious condition, and reactive thrombocytosis is caused by processes extrinsic to the megakaryocyte. Limited data are available for cefoperazone/sulbactam-associated hemolytic anemia and reactive thrombocytosis. Read More

Recurrence of left atrial myxoma mimicking a mitral annuloplasty ring thrombosis.

J Card Surg 2020 Feb 3;35(2):422-424. Epub 2019 Dec 3.

Department of Cardiology, Kosuyolu Kartal Heart Training and Research Hospital, Istanbul, Turkey.

Cardiac myxomas (CM) is by far the most common type of primary cardiac neoplasm that commonly arise within the left atria and is composed of primitive connective tissue cells and stroma. Despite the benign nature, the CMs are often surgically removed because they can lead to severe complications. Large, thin, and hypermobile forms are unusual. Read More
