Neovascularized myxoma-causing abnormal blood flow in the left atrium diagnosed by transesophageal echocardiography

Echocardiography

Xiaobing WangJun Yang

Abstract

Myxomas are the most common primary cardiac tumor, and neovascularization of cardiac myxoma has been shown in previous case reports. However, it is seldom reported that abnormal blood flow spurted from a neovascularized myxoma into the cardiac chamber. In this unusual case report, we pr...read more

Coronary Artery Disease

Coronary artery disease is extremely prevalent in western societies and is the number one cause of morbidity and mortality industrialized countries. Known risk factors include hypertension, smoking and dyslipidemia. Discover the latest research on coronary artery disease here.

Ischemia

Ischemia results from lack of blood flow to a particular region or organ and can have serious consequences, including myocardial infarction. Different therapeutic interventions including stents, percutaneous coronary intervention and angioplasty may be used for treatment. Discover the latest research on ischemia here.

Coronary Artery Aneurysm

Coronary artery aneurysms are the dilation of the coronary arteries that supply the heart tissue with blood and nutrients. The dilation exceeds 1.5 times the normal artery size. Complications can occur if these aneurysms rupture. Here is the latest research on coronary artery aneurysms.
