Surgical treatment of a huge cavernous hemangioma surrounding the right coronary artery

The Annals of Thoracic Surgery
Riza TurkozAlpay Sezgin


Hemangioma of the heart is an extremely rare benign cardiac tumor. A 61-year-old woman presented with a huge hemangioma on the right ventricle. The tumor was completely surrounding the right coronary artery. Under cardiopulmonary bypass, the right coronary artery was transected from the aortic sinus and the supplying arteries of the tumor were divided. The tumor was successfully resected, and the right coronary artery was reanastomosed to the aortic sinus.

Cavernous Hemangioma

Cavernous hemangioma is a blood vessel defect or benign tumor that leads to leakage of blood to the surrounding tissues. This can occur in several organs including the brain, which can lead to seizures. Discover the latest research on cavernous hemangiomas here.


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.
