Background: Primary cardiac tumors are rarely seen and have an incidence of 0.3% of all open-cardiac operations. Among those, myxoma is the most common cardiac tumor. There are only a few reports of such tumors from Turkey. Methods and Results: We report our experience with 67 patients with primary cardiac myxoma operated on at our institute between December 1990 and October 2006. The study group comprised 22.38% males and 77.61% females with a mean age of 46.29 (+/- 18.29) years. The predominant symptoms were dyspnea and palpitation. In addition, 3 patients presented with peripheral embolism with impending limb ischemia that necessitated emergency embolectomy. Echocardiography was generally enough for the demonstration of the myxomas. Two sporadic myxomas (%2.98) and one familial myxomas (1.49%) presented with recurrence. There were three (4.47%) hospital mortalities. Two patients (2.27%), with preoperative decompensation, died after tumor resection, from progressive low cardiac output. One patient, with preoperative massive pulmonary embolus, died two days after operation, from right ventricle insufficient. Conclusion: In conclusion, we herein summarized surgical results with primary cardiac myxomas. Surgical excision of primary cardiac myxomas tends to show excellent results after surgical excision.
