Neovascularization in left atrial myxoma.

Dubey L, Chaurasia AK - Int Cardiovasc Res J (2012)

Bottom Line: We report a case with a left atrial mass who underwent coronary angiography to rule out coronary artery disease.Coronary angiography revealed an anomalous tortuous vascular structure originating from the left circumflex coronary artery to the left atrial tumor suggestive of neovascularization.Preoperative coronary angiography is useful for coronary artery evaluation and also provides additional information regarding the feeding vessel supplying the mass.

ABSTRACT

Abstract: We report a case with a left atrial mass who underwent coronary angiography to rule out coronary artery disease. Coronary angiography revealed an anomalous tortuous vascular structure originating from the left circumflex coronary artery to the left atrial tumor suggestive of neovascularization. Preoperative coronary angiography is useful for coronary artery evaluation and also provides additional information regarding the feeding vessel supplying the mass.

Mentions: A 64-year-old man was referred to our department for transthoracic echocardiography. He had a history of ischemic stroke 2 years back with left hemiparesis. The physical examination revealed a low-pitched sound heard during mid-diastole. Transthoracic echocardiography showed a large gelatinous mass measuring 38 x 19 mm in the LA arising from the interatrial septum (Figure 1). Coronary angiography was performed to rule out significant coronary artery stenotic lesions before surgery, which demonstrated the large feeding vessel arising from the proximal left circumflex artery (Figure 2) that supplied the mass (Figure 3) with no evidence of coronary artery stenosis. The mass was excised and the patient recovered uneventfully. Pathological analysis of the mass confirmed the clinical diagnosis of LA myxoma.
