Calcified mass in the right atrium extending into the inferior vena cava with pulmonary artery embolization. Typical or atypical myxoma?

Echocardiography 2020 Jun 21. Epub 2020 Jun 21.

Department of Cardiac MRI, Allegheny General Hospital, Pittsburgh, PA, USA.

Cardiac masses are divided into neoplastic and non-neoplastic. They usually represent a diagnostic challenge given their relative rarity, their infrequent symptoms, and the overall difficulty with dynamic imaging of the heart. While echocardiography is useful in the initial evaluation of a suspected mass, cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) imaging is the best imaging modality to characterize cardiac tumors due to its superior tissue characterization and its higher contrast resolution.

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

Microenvironment in Cardiac Tumor Development: What Lies Beyond the Event Horizon?

Adv Exp Med Biol 2020 ;1226:51-56

Department of Cardiothoracic Surgery, New York Presbyterian Hospital, Weill Cornell Medicine, New York City, NY, USA.

Cardiac tumors are found in less than 1% of adult and pediatric autopsies. More than three-fourths of primary cardiac neoplasms are benign, with myxomas and rhabdomyomas being the most common cardiac tumors seen in adults and children, respectively. Primary malignant cardiac tumors are extremely rare, whereas metastatic lesions can be seen in approximately 8% of patients dying from cancer. Read More

Cardiac magnetic resonance imaging of primary cardiac tumors.

Quant Imaging Med Surg 2020 Jan;10(1):294-313

Department of Radiology, Beijing Anzhen Hospital, Capital Medical University, Beijing 100029, China.

Cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) offers superior advantages in cardiac imaging due to supplying a greater field of view, excellent soft-tissue imaging, and multiplanar imaging capabilities. CMR imaging can evaluate the characteristics of cardiac tumors by visualizing the relationship between the tumor and surrounding tissues, and plays a vital role in assisting the formulation of the surgical plan, the assessment of tumor progression, and the monitoring of postoperative tumor recurrence and metastasis. In this review, we present the clinical manifestations and imaging features of different cardiac tumors. Read More
