Abstract: A 2 7•y ear~l d woman wh o had previou sly undergone subeo rtic septal my ectomy fo r idiopathic hypertroph ic subaort ic stenosis presented in severe co ngestive failure with echocardiogra phic and angiographic features of aortic valve " vegetatio ns". At operat ion, papillary fi broelastomas of t he aort ic and mitral valves were found. Th e controversy surrounding t he et iology o f these "tumo rs" is d iscussed .

“…Several authors have suggested that CPF tends to grow slowly over time. [9][10][11] However, in our study, tumor size was not significantly correlated with patient age. Third, we have described the surgical treatment of CPF of the AV, including the cases of the two 29-yearold women who presented with cerebral infarction.…”

“…4 According to Howard et al, 55% of these tumors are found on the mitral or aortic valves, 1 they are usually singular, and only 7 cases of multiple tumors have been published in the literature. [5][6][7][8][9][10][11] The etiology of these tumors is unknown, but reaction to mechanical trauma, neoplasms, hamartomas or inflammatory nodules has been considered. 2,12 In the present case, the papillary fibroelastoma occurred in the LV cavity in association with mitral regurgitation, and the second tumors were on the aortic valve and were associated with aortic regurgitation.…”

“…2 The number of patients diagnosed with papillary fibroelastomas has increased since the advent of echocardiography, but cases of recurrence have not been reported and multiple occurrence is rare. [3][4][5][6][7][8][9][10][11] We present a case of double papillary fibroelastoma of the aortic valve with aortic regurgitation and mitral periprosthetic leakage occurring 4 years after resection of an initial left ventricular papillary fibroelastoma with mitral and tricuspid valvular disease. …”

“…1 Before the 1980s, most fibroelastomas were found at autopsy, 2,15,16,19,28,29 but since then, an increasing number of papillary fibroelastomas have been detected preoperatively. 3,5,7,8,12,26,32,33 Angiography 5,26,30,32,34 or magnetic resonance imaging 35 can reveal fibroelastoma, but echocardiography has been the most widely used modality; not only transthoracic, but also transesophageal, 9,11,13,20,[36][37][38][39][40][41][42] which also proved useful in our patient for finding the cause of the TIA. The evolution of echocardiography will increase the chance of detecting fibroelastoma preoperatively and further our knowledge of the characteristics of fibroelastoma.…”

“…1,2 Recurrence has never been reported and simple excision is effective for small tumors. 1 For larger tumors, repair 11,13,20,23,30,31,36,43 or replacement 24,26,32,37,42,44 of the valve may be needed. Our patient required valvuloplasty, because the valve was damaged unavoidably to achieve complete resection of the tumor.…”
