DUGAND, Manuela  y  CASTANEDA, Enrique. Clinical features of patients with primary heart tumors. Rev Med Hered [online]. 2017, vol.28, n.4, pp.226-229. ISSN 1018-130X.

Primary heart tumors are rare conditions with an incidence of less than 0.3% in necropsy studies. Objectives: To determine demographic, clinical and therapeutic features of primary heart tumors in a general hospital. Methods: A retrospective and descriptive study was carried out from January 2008 to September 2015. A hospital data base was reviewed to identify patients with the diagnosis of primary heart tumors, clinical charts and pathology reports were reviewed. Results: 10 patients with complete information were found. The most common location was the left atrium. Dyspnea and congestive heart failure were the main clinical onset manifestations. Causes of death could not be determined. Conclusions: The most common heart tumor was left atrial myxoma which correlates with what is reported worldwide.
