VAZQUEZ-ANTONA, Clara A et al. Recurrent myxoma: Bi and three-Dimensional echocardiography approach. Arch. Cardiol. Méx. [online]. 2005, vol.75, n.4, pp. 463-466. ISSN 1405-9940.
The case of a 16-years old female patient with left atrial myxoma and cerebral embolism is reported. She was subjected to surgical excision of the mass. At 40 months of follow-up she initiates with dyspnea and an aortic murmur is detected. The transthoracic and transesophageal echocardiographic analysis revealed the presence of three tumors: in the left atrium, left and right ventricle. The myxoma of the left ventricle obstructs the aortic valve. We discuss the usefulness of bi-and three-dimensional echocardiography as initial diagnostic method.
