Cardiovasc J Afr 2019 Feb 6;30:1-4. Epub 2019 Feb 6.

Department of Cardiovascular Surgery, Florence Nightingale Hospital, Istanbul, Turkey.

Sporadic ca rdiac myxomas rarely recur, however recurrence rates are higher in patients with a familial aggregation or Carney complex. Carney complex is characterised by multiple mucocutaneous lesions and accounts for up to two-thirds of familial cardiac myxomas. A second recurrence is very rare, even in the case of Carney complex.

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

Fifth Surgical Clinic, Department of Surgery, National and Kapodistrian University of Athens School of Medicine, Athens, Greece.

BACKGROUND Carney complex (CNC) is a genetic disorder that presents as an adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH)-independent variant of endogenous Cushing syndrome. It was first reported in 1985 and was described as a form of multiple endocrine hyperplasia associated with mutations of the c-AMP-dependent protein kinase (PRKAR1A) gene that causes bilateral adrenal hyperplasia. We report a case of an incidentally found CNC in a 35-year-old male, and this case report focuses on the diagnostic scheme as well as the surgical treatment of this rare challenging condition.

Department of Neurology and Stroke, and Hertie-Institute for Clinical Brain Research, Eberhard-Karls University of Tübingen, Tübingen, Germany.

Cardiac myxoma (CM) is the most frequent, cardiac benign tumor and is associated with enhanced risk for cerebrovascular events (CVE). Although surgical CM excision is the only curative treatment to prevent CVE recurrence, in recent reports conservative treatment with antiplatelet or anticoagulant agents in high-risk patients with CM-related CVE has been discussed. Case records at the University Hospital of Tübingen between 2005 and 2017 were screened to identify patients with CM-related CVE. Read More

Surgical treatment for pulmonary embolization of a right atrial myxoma.

Ann Thorac Surg 2018 Oct 10. Epub 2018 Oct 10.

Department of Cardio-Thoracic and Vascular Surgery, Foundation "I.R.C.C.S. Policlinico San Matteo", University of Pavia, School of Medicine, Pavia, Italy.

We report the case of a woman with pulmonary embolism due to a cardiac mass. Echocardiography, CT scan and cardiac magnetic resonance raised the suspicion of right atrial myxoma and confirmed the presence of pulmonary embolism. The patient was sent to Pavia, where the atrial myxoma was excised, and using interrupted periods of circulatory arrest, extraction of the myxoma emboli from the pulmonary arteries was performed.

Neonatal supraventricular extrasystole as early clinical debut of cardiac rhabdomyoma.

Ann Pediatr Cardiol 2018 Sep-Dec;11(3):318-321

Department of Pediatric Cardiology, Hospital Universitari Vall d'Hebron, Barcelona, Spain.

We are reporting the case of a newborn with a diagnosis of frequent supraventricular extrasystoles, up to 25% of beats at Holter monitoring, and partial response to beta-blockers. Initial echocardiographic studies were normal until the identification of a right atrial mass at 4 months of life. Given the progressive growth of the mass and the suspicion of myxoma or thrombus in the magnetic resonance study, surgical resection of the tumor was performed. Read More

Department of Cardiac Surgery, Union Hospital of Fujian Medical University, Fuzhou, Fujian 350001, P.R. China.

The profile of differentially expressed microRNAs (miRNAs) in the serum of patients with cardiac myxoma (CM) (n=30) and healthy people (n=30) was studied using miRNA microarray analysis. The expression of the candidate miRNAs was validated by reverse transcription-quantitative polymerase chain reaction (RT-qPCR) in the serum of 30 CM patients and 30 healthy control individuals. TargetScan, PicTar and miRanda were used to predict the possible target gene of miR-320a. Read More
