We describe a rare complication after the resection of the left atrial (LA) myxoma. After tumor resection, a large defect of the endocardium was reinforced with an autologous pericardial patch. Transesophageal echocardiography demonstrated a hematoma and pulsatile flow beneath the patch, without patch perforation or detachment. Bleeding increased after closure of the sternum. Intramural hematoma and oozing rupture of the LA were diagnosed. A small intramural vessel of the LA was identified as the main causative site of bleeding. The pericardial patch was repositioned with fibrin glue. Fibrin sheets and glue were applied for reinforcement of the LA from outside.
