    The coexistence of right atrial myxoma and atrial septal defect is very rare. We report here a case of atrial septal defect associated with a right atrial myxoma with pulmonary embolization and cyanosis mimicking pulmonary thromboembolism.

    Abstract: Mitral stenosis associated with free left atrial myxoma is very rare. A free myxoma is life-threatening when incarcerated in the mitral orifice or if embolization of the whole tumor occurs. We report a case of a female patient with moderate mitral stenosis and a detached left atrial...

    Mitral regurgitation is uncommon with left atrial myxoma. The echocardiographic assessment of presence of mitral regurgitation and its severity are impaired by the presence of left atrial myxoma. We describe an uncommon association of left atrial myxoma with coronary artery disease and mitral...

    The authors report the flow pattern of the four pulmonary veins in a case with prolapsing left atrial myxoma. The early systolic flow was reversed, midsystolic forward flow was diminished, and diastolic forward flow was augmented and decelerated rapidly in all four pulmonary veins. This...

    A 64-year-old male with previous Duke's B adenocarcinoma of the colon, successfully treated with surgery and chemotherapy presented several months later with dyspnoea and atrial fibrillation. Investigations showed that he had a left atrial myxoma and a concurrent saddle pulmonary embolus. Full...

    Atrial myxomas are the commonest benign primary tumours of the heart. They are generally 2 to 6 cm in size. Depending on their size and site may result in mitral valve obstruction which may lead to pulmonary hypertension. Clinical symptoms may suggest the presence of a myxoma but...

    The article discusses a patient with atrial fibrillation and a history of amaurosis fugax. Through examination, the findings were suggestive of myxoma. During surgery, the left atrial myxoma was diagnosed. It was found out that the internal elastic lumina of the artery near the tumor stalk was...

    The article discusses the surgical operation of patient with localized giant left atrial myxoma that causes severe pulmonary hypertension. The transthoracic echocardiography (TTE) of patient showed a mobile hyperechoic lesion in a dilated left atrium. Pulmonary hypertension was identified with...

    Atrial myxoma is the most common primary cardiac tumor. Patients with atrial myxoma typically present with obstructive, embolic, or systemic symptoms; asymptomatic presentation is very rare. To our knowledge, isolated association of atrial myxoma with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy has been...

    Cardiac myxomas are primary cardiac tumors. In some cases of atrial myxoma, the standard left atriotomy alone does not enable safe tumor resection and easy access to the mitral valve. We report the cases of 2 patients with huge left atrial myxomas associated with severe mitral valve...
