Resumen

MERTENS, Renato et al. Pelvic intravenous leiomyomatosis with intracardiac extension: Report of two cases. Rev. méd. Chile [online]. 2012, vol.140, n.7, pp. 906-909. ISSN 0034-9887.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0034-98872012000700012.

Background: symptoms predominate. Diagnosis is based on clinical findings and appropriate imaging. We report two females, aged 35 and 51 years. One of them presented with a pelvic mass and dyspnea, the other patient had severe cardiac failure on admission. Computed axial tomography scan allowed an accurate preoperative diagnosis on both patients. Successful one stage resection of the tumor was performed under cardiopulmonary bypass. Both patients are asymptomatic on follow up at 6 months and 25 years.

Palabras clave : Heart neoplasms; Leiomyomatosis; Thoracic surgery.
