Radical Resection of Cardiac Angiosarcoma with Atrioventricular Reconstruction JOURNAL OF HEART VALVE DISEASE Chiu, P., Black, A., Woo, Y. J. 2015; 24 (3): 379-382


Cardiac sarcomas are rare and have a poor prognosis. The details are presented of a patient with a right atrial angiosarcoma who underwent radical resection with reconstruction of the right atrium with a bovine pericardial patch, tricuspid valve replacement, and bypass of the right coronary artery. Survival is improved in patients who successfully undergo total (R0) resection. For this reason, an aggressive approach to resection is recommended, with extensive reconstruction for all patients with cardiac sarcoma.
