Abstract

Cardiac sarcomas represent the majority of primary malignant cardiac tumors. They are usually located in the right atrium and are frequently angiosarcomas. We present a case of primary cardiac sarcoma originating from the left atrium in a 40-year-old woman that was treated with resection combined with mitral valve bypass.
