Resumen

DIAZ, Rienzi  y  ARANGUIZ, Ernesto. Asymptomatic left ventricular myxoma incidentally diagnosed by echocardiography. Report of one case. Rev. méd. Chile [online]. 2013, vol.141, n.12, pp.1594-1597. ISSN 0034-9887.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0034-98872013001200015.

We report a 50 year-old hypertensive and asymptomatic woman in whom a left ventricular tumor was found on a routine two-dimensional transthoracic echocardiogram. Complementary 3D echocardiography, cardiac magnetic resonance and cardiac computed tomography allowed the diagnosis of a calcified left ventricular myxoma. Surgical treatment was performed through a transaortic transvalvular approach with tumor resection and implantation of a pericardial bovine patch. This case confirms the importance of transthoracic echocardiography in the diagnosis of cardiac tumors and the complementary role of 3D echocardiography, cardiac magnetic resonance imaging and computed tomography for the differential diagnosis before surgery.
