Role of Multimodal Cardiac Imaging in Diagnosing a Primary Intimal Sarcoma of the Left Atrial Appendage.

Tex Heart Inst J 2019 02 1;46(1):28-31. Epub 2019 Feb 1.

Primary cardiac tumors are rare, and most are benign. Intimal sarcomas are among the rarest of the malignant cardiac tumors; they are aggressive and associated with a poor prognosis. Whereas transesophageal echocardiography has been instrumental in evaluating cardiac masses, other imaging methods, such as cardiac magnetic resonance, have proved invaluable in accurately characterizing these masses.

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.

Totally endoscopic robotic-assisted excision of right ventricular papillary fibroelastoma.

J Robot Surg 2019 Jan 4. Epub 2019 Jan 4.

Departments of Cardiothoracic Surgery, University of Chicago Medicine, 5841 S. Maryland Ave. E-500, Chicago, IL, 60637, USA.

Although they comprise a small number of primary tumors of the heart, papillary fibroelastomas (PFEs) are the second most common type of benign cardiac tumor. PFEs of the right heart are uncommon, and those arising from the right-ventricular (RV) wall are extremely rare, with only a handful of reported cases in the literature. Removal of these tumors has been described, primarily through a median sternotomy approach, with only one report of using a right-sided mini-thoracotomy technique. Read More

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

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

Malignant Versus Benign Tumors of the Sinonasal Cavity: A Case-Control Study on Occupational Etiology.

Int J Environ Res Public Health 2018 12 17;15(12). Epub 2018 Dec 17.

Department of Cardiac Thoracic Vascular Sciences and Public Health, Preventive Medicine and Risk Assessment Unit, University of Padova, Via Giustiniani 2, 35128 Padova, Italy.

Case-control studies on malignant sinonasal tumors and occupational risk factors are generally weakened by non-occupational confounders and the selection of suitable controls. This study aimed to confirm the association between sinonasal malignant tumors and patients' occupations with consideration for sinonasal inverted papillomas (SNIPs) as a control group. Thirty-two patients affected by adenocarcinoma (ADC) and 21 non-adenocarcinoma epithelial tumors (NAETs) were compared to 65 patients diagnosed with SNIPs. Read More

Department of Thoracic & Cardiovascular Surgery, Yeungnam University Medical Center, Daegu, Korea. Electronic address:

Background: Pseudo-Meigs syndrome is an unusual condition involving pelvic tumors, excluding ovarian fibroma, and is associated with ascites and hydrothorax. Pseudo-Meigs syndrome originating from uterine leiomyoma is an even rarer condition. Intravenous leiomyomatosis originating from uterine tumors, which extend from the inferior vena cava to the right heart chambers, is also extremely rare. Read More

Surgery for Tumors of the Heart.

Semin Thorac Cardiovasc Surg 2018 Winter;30(4):385-397. Epub 2018 Sep 8.

Department of Cardiovascular Surgery, Houston Methodist DeBakey Heart & Vascular Center, Houston Methodist Hospital, Houston, Texas. Electronic address:

Most surgeons will encounter only a handful of primary cardiac tumors outside of myxomas. Approximately 3 quarters of primary cardiac tumors are benign and 1 quarter is malignant. In most cases, cardiac tumors are silent but when symptoms do occur, they are primarily determined by tumor size and anatomical location, not by histopathology. Read More

Variants associating with uterine leiomyoma highlight genetic background shared by various cancers and hormone-related traits.

Nat Commun 2018 09 7;9(1):3636. Epub 2018 Sep 7.

deCODE Genetics/Amgen, Sturlugata 8, 101, Reykjavik, Iceland.

Uterine leiomyomas are common benign tumors of the myometrium. We performed a meta-analysis of two genome-wide association studies of leiomyoma in European women (16,595 cases and 523,330 controls), uncovering 21 variants at 16 loci that associate with the disease. Five variants were previously reported to confer risk of various malignant or benign tumors (rs78378222 in TP53, rs10069690 in TERT, rs1800057 and rs1801516 in ATM, and rs7907606 at OBFC1) and four signals are located at established risk loci for hormone-related traits (endometriosis and breast cancer) at 1q36.

Resection of a plasma cell granuloma combining a conventional posterolateral left-sided thoracotomy with a minimally invasive valve approach.

Gen Thorac Cardiovasc Surg 2018 08 11. Epub 2018 Aug 11.

Department of Cardiothoracic Surgery, Linköping University Hospital, Linköping, Sweden.

Plasma cell granuloma (PCG) is a rare benign tumor that is difficult to differentiate from malignancy. Depending on the location of the PCG, surgical management can be challenging. We describe a patient with a PCG involving the left lower lobe extending into the left atrium, that was resected en bloc using a conventional posterolateral thoracotomy combined with a surgical approach predominantly used for minimally invasive mitral valve surgery.
