Abstract

P>Cardiac myxomas are most commonly found within the left atrium. We now report a patient presenting with dyspnea, palpitation, and chest pain who was found to have myxoma arising from the pulmonary valve commissure. Urgent surgical treatment is curative and warranted for these lesions, in order to prevent outflow obstruction and thromboembolic phenomena. (J Card Surg 2011;26:286-287).
