Assessment of large cardiac tumors requires careful definition of the extent, cell type, and degree of invasiveness to determine the best operative management. Preoperative magnetic resonance imaging and echocardiography were helpful, but limited in the assessment and management in the case of a 19-year-old pregnant woman with a large (9 x 5.5-cm) left ventricular mass. Intraoperative echocardiography and videocardioscopy facilitated precise operative decisions and management. Successful resection was achieved without the need for cardiac transplantation. This case demonstrates the complexity of the diagnosis and management of large cardiac tumors.
