Abstract

We describe the management of a recurrent atrial myxoma extending to the pulmonary veins and superior vena cava. Deep hypothermia and circulatory arrest with left atrial and caval excision was required to achieve complete resection of the tumor. The patient is alive and well without evidence of tumor recurrence 18 months after transplantation. Radical en bloc cardiac resection is feasible in selected cases of cardiac tumors.
