Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Primary cardiac tumors of the ventricles are very uncommon. Cardiac lipomas are extremely rare primary benign cardiac tumors. Most reported cardiac lipomas have been diagnosed incidentally at autopsy. Lipomas in both ventricular cavities were not reported before. We report the case of a 51-year-old male referred to our hospital complaining of exercise angina during the last month. Transthoracic echocardiogram showed two masses; one of them was in the left venricular cavity and the other one was in the right ventricular cavity. After that we performed coronary angiography and the angiography showed a tree vessel disease. For treatment, surgery was performed and the tumors were resected with performing tree vessels coronary by-pass.
