Abstract

The incidence of primary cardiac tumors is very rare (0.02%) with the majority being benign. Angiosarcoma is the most common malignant cardiac tumor. However, regardless of the histological nature of cardiac tumors, they can cause life-threatening mechanical obstruction. We present a case of urgent surgical removal of a right ventricular (RV) mass. Echocardiography was instrumental for confirmation of the diagnosis, delineation of the anatomical extent of the tumor, evaluation for associated structural involvement and assessment of repair along with constant hemodynamic monitoring.
