|Title:||Giant cardiac myxoma.||Austin Authors:||Barlis, Peter;Lim, Eu Jin ;Gow, Paul J ;Seevanayagam, Siven ;Calafiore, Paul ;Chan, Robert K||Affiliation:||Cardiology||Issue Date:||18-Apr-2007||Publication information:||Heart, Lung & Circulation 2007; 16(5): 389-91||Abstract:||Although cardiac myxomas remain an uncommon group of malignancies, they are the most common form of primary cardiac tumour. Clinical presentations can be varied with local cardiac haemodynamic consequences, valvular insufficiency or even embolic phenomena. We present a case of a 46-year-old man with chronic abdominal pain and discuss a number of diagnostic challenges that were confronted up until a definitive diagnosis of cardiac myxoma was made. The resultant outcome was excellent with the patient achieving complete recovery from long term disabling symptoms.||URI:||https://ahro.austin.org.au/austinjspui/handle/1/10357||DOI:||10.1016/j.hlc.2006.08.009||ORCID:||Journal:||Heart, Lung & Circulation||URL:||https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/17446132||Type:||Journal Article||Subjects:||Abdominal Pain.pathology.ultrasonography
