Abstract

A rare case of left ventricular myxoma in a 55-year-old woman, located on the chordae tendinae of posteromedial papillary muscle, is presented. The tumor was visualised by the transthoracic and transesophageal echocardiography examination. The woman was selected for surgery. The left ventricular tumor was completely resected via left atrium and diagnosed histologically as myxoma.
