We describe the case of a 73-year-old man, with a history of previous coronary artery by-pass, who presented at our division for new onset of angina, hypotension and dyspnea due to a primary giant para-cardiac lipoma. The success of complete resection of the mass achieved by means of video-assisted thoracic surgical procedure demonstrated the efficacy and safeness of this method in the treatment of benign cardiac tumours.

Abstract

We describe the case of a 73-year-old man, with a history of previous coronary artery by-pass, who presented at our division for new onset of angina, hypotension and dyspnea due to a primary giant para-cardiac lipoma. The success of complete resection of the mass achieved by means of video-assisted thoracic surgical procedure demonstrated the efficacy and safeness of this method in the treatment of benign cardiac tumours.
