“…As angiocardiography is not performed in all patients with mitral valve disease,6 atrial myxoma may still be found unexpectedly and may cause serious and even fatal complications at cardiac catheterization or at surgery. [7][8][9][10][11][12] Ultrasound cardiography is an atraumatic method of special diagnostic value in mitral valve diEease.13-2o Edlerl3 found multiple echoes caused by a thrombus in the left atrium, and similar findings have been reported in patients with atrial tumors. [21][22][23][24][25][26] The purpose of this paper is to report two patients in which ultrasound cardiogram preoperatively suggested the presence of a left atrial myxoma.…”

“…It has also been emphasized, that the echocardiographic technique would render surgical intervention possible in atrial myxomas without preoperative invasive diagnostic procedures (18). In myxoma, such investigations are associated with risk of embolization, especially transseptal catheterization (3, 16,20), but also right heart catheterization in right atrial myxoma (24).…”

“…Due to the rarity of myxomas and the highly variable clinical picture, more common cardiac diseases are usually suspected. Obstruction of the mitral ostium-the most common manifestation of left atrial myxoma-will easily be misdiagnosed as rheumatic mitral stenosis ( 5 , 6, 8,9,14,18). The combination of sinus rhythm, a short history of symptoms and a negative history of rheumatic disease, however, should suggest the possibility of myxoma (9).…”

“…Myxomas are known for their masquerading features, presenting with obstructive, embolic or constitutional symptoms in varying combinations (5,6,8). Apart from mitral stenosis and arterial embolism, diagnoses like endocarditis, rheumatic fever, mesenchymosis and cardiomyopathy are frequently suspected, before a definitive diagnosis of myxoma is established by catheterization, operation or autopsy (9,13,14,18,25).…”
