Primary cardiac synovial sarcoma that was continuous with the mitral valve caused severe thrombocytopenia: a case report.

J Cardiothorac Surg 2019 Feb 4;14(1):30. Epub 2019 Feb 4.

Cardiac Surgery Department, Peking University People's Hospital, Beijing, 100044, China.

Background: Primary cardiac sarcomas are exceedingly rare, and they commonly result in nonspecific constitutional symptoms such as shortness of breath, weight loss, and anaemia-related fatigue and malaise. However, thrombocytopenia has very rarely been reported in association with cardiac tumours, either benign or malignant. We report one case of primary cardiac synovial sarcoma continuous with the mitral valve, which was accompanied by severe thrombocytopenia, and the platelet counts returned rapidly to a normal range early after tumour excision and without any special therapies.

A case report of left atrial myxoma-induced acute myocardial infarction and successive stroke.

Medicine (Baltimore) 2018 Dec;97(51):e13451

Department of Neurology, First Affiliated Hospital of Chinese PLA General Hospital, Beijing, China.

Rationale: Left atrial myxoma is a common primary cardiac tumor, however, due to poor image quality or atypical myxoma images, it is often misdiagnosed by echocardiograph. A case of left atrial myxoma being misdiagnosed as a thrombus, which successively caused acute myocardial infarction (AMI) and stroke, is very rare. Contrast-enhanced echocardiography can play an important role in definitive diagnosis. Read More

Upper vena cava syndrome secondary to giant atrial myxoma.

Rev Assoc Med Bras (1992) 2018 Dec;64(12):1077-1080

Clinical Emergency Unit - InCor - HCFMUSP - São Paulo, SP, Brasil.

Objective: Cardiac myxoma is a benign neoplasm, which corresponds to the most common primary heart tumour, responsible for about 50% of the cases. In general, 75-80% of myxomas are located in the left atrium, 18% in the right atrium, and more rarely in the ventricles or multicentric. Right atrial myxoma, in particular, can obstruct the tricuspid valve, causing symptoms of right heart failure, peripheral oedema, hepatic congestion, and syncope. Read More

An unusual presentation of prominent crista terminalis mimicking a right atrial mass: a case report.

BMC Cardiovasc Disord 2018 Nov 7;18(1):210. Epub 2018 Nov 7.

Department of Cardiology, General Hospital of Chinese People's Liberation Army, 28th Fuxing Road, Beijing, 100853, China.

Background: The crista terminalis is a variation of normal anatomical structure within the right atrium which may be misdiagnosed with an abnormal atrial mass normally visualized in the standard views on the transthoracic echocardiogram.

Case Presentation: In this case presentation, we demonstrated a rare case report describing the accidental discovery of a right atrial mass-like structure in a 54-year old Asian man without physical discomfort during an echocardiographic examination. These findings naturally caused some concern as the differential diagnosis such as right atrial myxoma or thrombus and further examination were organized. Read More

Cardioembolic Stroke from an Atrial Myxoma in a Pediatric Patient: A Case Report and Review of the Literature.

J Heart Valve Dis 2017 11;26(6):646-650

King Fahad Specialist Hospital-Dammam, Al Muraikabat, Dammam, Saudi Arabia.

Cardioembolic stroke is an uncommon phenomenon in pediatric patients. Although the heart is the usual source of the condition, cardiac myxomas are still considered to be a rare cause in children. The case is presented of a 13-year-old, right-handed Saudi boy who showed right-sided weakness for 30 h prior to hospital admission that involved the face, arm, and leg, with slurred speech.

The role of 3D echocardiographic imaging in the differential diagnosis of an atypical left atrial myxoma.

Monaldi Arch Chest Dis 2018 09 4;88(3):906. Epub 2018 Sep 4.

King Faisal Specialist Hospital & Research Center, Heart Center.

We describe a case of a left atrial myxoma atypical for its anatomical features and site of attachment. Although an initial multimodality imaging was performed, the diagnosis of myxoma was possible only by three dimensional echocardiography (3DE) which was able to identify the pedicle and the attachment at the base of the interatrial septum, close to the origin of right inferior pulmonary vein. In fact the 3DE can electronically section the structures and obtain unique planes useful in visualizing correctly the anatomical features of the myxomas and as a result, it facilitates the surgical decision planning.

Advanced Atherosclerosis with Leriche Syndrome, in a Patient with Carney Complex.

Maedica (Buchar) 2018 Jun;13(2):147-151

Cardiology Department, University and Emergency Hospital, Bucharest, Romania.

Carney complex (CNC) is a rare autosomal dominant syndrome. Spotty skin pigmentation is the major clinical manifestation of CNC, followed by cardiac myxomas, benign tumors that usually present with features from the classical triad of obstructive cardiac, embolic and non-specific constitutional symptoms (NCS). NCS are caused by the overproduction of interleukin-6 (IL-6), a pro-inflammatory cytokine which mediates the induction of intercellular adhesion molecule 1 (ICAM-1) and promotes endothelial dysfunction and atherosclerosis.

Stroke and peripheral embolisms in a pediatric patient with giant atrial myxoma: Case report and review of current literature.

Medicine (Baltimore) 2018 Jul;97(30):e11653

Department of Cardiovascular Surgery, The Second Xiangya Hospital, Central South University, Changsha, Hunan, People's Republic of China.

Rationale: Cerebral stroke with peripheral embolism due to left atrial myxoma is very rare in children. Misdiagnosis may occur because of nonspecific symptoms in the heart.

Patient Concerns: We present a case of a 16-year-old boy who presented with ischemic stroke and embolisms in the lower extremity, caused by a giant left atrial myxoma. Read More
