Özet

A 22-year-old woman who had a history of three cardiac operations and a bilateral femoral embolectomy for recurrent cardiac myxoma and myxoma embolism, respectively, was accepted to our clinic with multiple immobile peripheral masses. One of them was compressing the left common femoral artery. This mass was extirpated. Pathology examination revealed myxoma. Chemotherapy was given to the patient and regression of the masses was observed. (C) 2001 by The Society of Thoracic Surgeons.
