Abstract: The records of 40 patients, 28 females and 12 males with a median age of 49 years (range 13-80 years), undergoing excision of left-atrial myxoma at 3 London hospitals during a 21-year period were reviewed. The urgency of treatment is discussed, and the interval between the onset of symptoms and diagnosis (median 38 weeks), and also between diagnosis and surgery (< 48 hours) is considered.

“…Therapeutic aims are total tumor resection and restoration of cardiac valve function. Surgical treatment should not be delayed because death from obstruction or embolization may occur in as many as 8 % of patients awaiting operations [ 19 , 20 ]. Median sternotomy approach with ascending aortic and bicaval cannulation are usually employed.…”

“…27,28 Myxomas are often surgically resected due to the risk of distal embolization, mitral valve obstruction, and malignant degeneration. 29 CONCLUSION Stroke from cardiac sources comprises a major subset of all cerebral infarctions and ischemia. Cardiac sources of stroke include intracardiac thrombus, right-to-left shunts, tumors, and slow-flow states resulting from hemodynamic compromise.…”
