Abstract: 15 consecutive cases where patients (11 female, 4 male) had undergone surgical excision of cardiac myxoma were reviewed. The 11 survivors were re-assessed by trans-oesophageal echocardiography and recurrent myxoma was detected in 2 patients. These two were the only patients who had originally presented with multiple myxomas. Analysis of these cases in conjunction with 26 previously reported cases of recurrence identifies two distinct groups of patients. In one group (12 cases, mean age 48.7 years) recurrence o… Show more

“…Whereas the risk of myxoma recurrence has been approximated to be 3% for sporadic tumors and 22% for familial myxomas, 21 we present an overall rate of myxoma recurrence to be 13%. There have been many hypotheses on the cause of recurrence, including multifocality, intraoperative seeding, and malignancy transformation 21,22 ; however, there continues to be uncertainty regarding the etiology. We provide evidence that myxoma recurrence is highly associated with younger patients and not …”

“…The resulting atrial septal defect can be closed by direct suturing; if the defect is too large for direct suturing, a pericardial, bovine, or synthetic patch can be used [2,4,26]. Wideseptal excision, including the entire fossa ovale, and patch repair is done in patients with multiple tumors because most recurrences involve the septum [25,27]. For a myxoma not attached to the septum, the full thickness of the atrial wall or ventricular endocardium and a layer of underlying myocardium are excised [3,28].…”

“…Full-thickness excision of the atrial septum at the base of the tumor along with a cuff of adjacent normal tissue is recommended [25]. The resulting atrial septal defect can be closed by direct suturing; if the defect is too large for direct suturing, a pericardial, bovine, or synthetic patch can be used [2,4,26].…”
