Abstract

Left Atrial Myxoma Associated with Advanced Atrioventricular Block in a Very Elderly Woman

Primary cardiac tumors are rare and only 10% of them are malignant. Nearly 80% of benign forms are myxomas that usually develop in the atria, 75% originating in the left atrium and 15-20% in the right atrium.

Keywords: Cardiac tumors; Cardiac myxoma; Atrio ventricular block
