Resection of a Giant Cardiac Lymphovenous Malformation Involving the Right Atrioventricular Groove. The Annals of thoracic surgery Chiu, P., Edmonson, A., Brewer, Z. E., Woo, Y. J. 2017; 104 (3): e257–e259

Abstract

Lymphovenous malformations of the heart are rare, and optimal management is uncertain. We present a case of a 39-year-old gentleman with a giant symptomatic lymphovenous malformation involving the right atrium, ventricle, and coronary artery. Radical resection was performed with replacement of the tricuspid valve and bovine pericardial reconstruction of the atrium and ventricle. Additional coronary artery bypass grafting was performed to the acute marginal and distal right coronary artery. Radical resection for this benign process is feasible and may be considered given the possibility of recurrence seen with lymphatic malformations of other parts of the body.
