The Annals of Thoracic Surgery

Cardiac hemangiomas are extremely rare benign tumors. These tumors are usually asymptomatic but they can present symptoms such as palpitations, shortness of breath, and arrythmia. We report the case of a 73-year-old man who presented with an abnormal shadow on chest computed tomography during follow-up for lung metastatic tumor after resection of his rectal cancer. A cardiac tumor was detected, and surgical resection and right ventricular plasty were successfully performed with the patient under cardiopulmonary bypass. Histopathologic examination revealed a benign cardiac hemangioma, which was categorized as a hemangioma of the mixed cavernous and capillary type.

Arrhythmias are abnormalities in heart rhythms, which can be either too fast or too slow. They can result from abnormalities of the initiation of an impulse or impulse conduction or a combination of both. Here is the latest research on arrhythmias.

Atrial Fibrillation

Atrial fibrillation is a common arrhythmia that is associated with substantial morbidity and mortality, particularly due to stroke and thromboembolism. Here is the latest research.
