Hyaluronic acid deposition in cardiac myxomas: localization using a hyaluronate-specific binding protein. The American journal of cardiovascular pathology Hendin, B. N., Longaker, M. T., Finkbeiner, W. E., Roberts, L. J., Stern, R. 1990; 3 (3): 209-215
Myxomas are the most common primary tumors of the heart. These lesions contain a gelatinous, ground-substancelike material which has been described as glycosaminoglycan in nature.
