Abstract

Myxoma is the most frequent primary cardiac tumor. The treatment of choice is complete surgical resection. We present the case of a patient assessed for a long history of dyspnea on exertion. The patient was diagnosed with a large left atrial myxoma that obstructed the left ventricular inflow tract. Multimodal imaging played a key role in diagnosis, planning of surgery, and management of the complications arising from the condition.
