Recurrence of left atrial myxoma mimicking a mitral annuloplasty ring thrombosis.

Summary of "Recurrence of left atrial myxoma mimicking a mitral annuloplasty ring thrombosis."

Cardiac myxomas (CM) is by far the most common type of primary cardiac neoplasm that commonly arise within the left atria and is composed of primitive connective tissue cells and stroma. Despite the benign nature, the CMs are often surgically removed because they can lead to severe complications. Large, thin, and hypermobile forms are unusual. The frequency of recurrence is about 22% for complex forms and 12% for other familial forms and 1% to 3% for sporadic myxomas, which seldom recur after surgery. Although transesophageal echocardiography shows usually accurate imaging capabilities to detect the myxoma, further imaging methods including computed tomography, cardiovascular magnetic resonance imaging, and F-fluorodeoxyglucose positron-emission tomography/computed tomography may be useful to diagnosis for it. Surgery is the mainstay of treatment.

Rapidly Growing Intra-Cardiac Mass Mimicking a Local Recurrence of Lung Cancer or a Thrombus in the Left Atrium.

Cardiac myxoma typically is thought to be a slow-growing, benign primary. Atrial myxomas can lead to many complications and can also mimic mitral stenosis, infective endocarditis, and other vascular d...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Backflow of blood from the LEFT VENTRICLE into the LEFT ATRIUM due to imperfect closure of the MITRAL VALVE. This can lead to mitral valve regurgitation.

Abnormal protrusion or billowing of one or both of the leaflets of MITRAL VALVE into the LEFT ATRIUM during SYSTOLE. This allows the backflow of blood into left atrium leading to MITRAL VALVE INSUFFICIENCY; SYSTOLIC MURMURS; or CARDIAC ARRHYTHMIA.

Narrowing of the passage through the MITRAL VALVE due to FIBROSIS, and CALCINOSIS in the leaflets and chordal areas. This elevates the left atrial pressure which, in turn, raises pulmonary venous and capillary pressure leading to bouts of DYSPNEA and TACHYCARDIA during physical exertion. RHEUMATIC FEVER is its primary cause.

A type of heart valve surgery that involves the repair, replacement, or reconstruction of the annulus of the MITRAL VALVE. It includes shortening the circumference of the annulus to improve valve closing capacity and reinforcing the annulus as a step in more complex valve repairs.

Impaired or delayed impulse conduction between the right and left HEART ATRIA. Advanced interatrial blocks are often associated with arrhythmias (e.g., ATRIAL FLUTTER; and ATRIAL FIBRILLATION), direct conduction block via the Bachmann's bundle and concomitant left atrial enlargement. Syndrome of advanced interatrial block associated with SUPRAVENTRICULAR TACHYCARDIA is referred to as Bayes syndrome.
