Abstract

Intracardiac tumours are usually found after clinical symptoms lead to a positive imaging study, or as an incidental finding of imaging study, usually echocardiography. Cardiac tumours range from non-neoplastic lesions to high grade malignancies. The majority of primary cardiac tumours are myxomas (in 75% cases) or sarcomas (about 10% cases). In this paper we present cases of 2 patients with right atrial tumour, extending from renal carcinoma, invading renal vein and inferior vena cava into right atrium. Two different therapeutic strategies were undertaken in those patients.
