    Papillary fibroelastoma (PFE) is a rare and benign cardiac tumour that mainly affects the valves. This tumour has the potential to cause serious life threatening thromboembolic complications. Herein, we describe successful excision of an aortic valve papillary fibroelastoma. The importance of...

    The article focuses on cardiac papillary fibroelastoma of the mitral valve chordae. Papillary fibroelastoma of the mitral valve does not occur frequently, with fewer than 50 cases being reported in the literature. Therefore each case is interesting to report in order to improve the diagnosis and...

    Introduction. Primary tumors of the heart are rare, usually benign and occur mostly in adults, and usually originate from the endocardium, followed by the myocardium and rarest of the pericardium. Papillary fibroelastoma accounts for less than 10% of all cardiac tumors, but they are most common...
