Abstract

Primary cardiac sarcomas are rare but aggressive tumors and can present a technical challenge with regard to surgical approach and resection. Complete surgical resection, when feasible, remains crucial for palliation of symptoms and for its role as the mainstay of cardiac sarcoma therapy. Surgical resection of recurrent cardiac sarcomas, though formidable, is technically feasible and may provide reasonable survival, especially when the recurrence is local and the metastatic load is limited. In this case report, we describe a successful third cardiac sarcoma resection procedure in a young patient with previous cardiac autotransplantation and excision of left atrial sarcoma.
