MANZUR J, Fernando; BARBOSA, Cristian  and  PUELLO, Agustín. Left atrial mixoma associated with severe mitral valve insufficiency in a 31 years old female patient: a case report. Rev. Colomb. Cardiol. [online]. 2011, vol.18, n.6, pp.345-349. ISSN 0120-5633.

We report the case of a 31 years old female patient without pathological antecedents, with a left atrial mixoma that measured 9 cm x 8 cm. It manifested clinically by sudden cardiac obstructive symptoms and was diagnosed by transthoracic echocardiography. Immediate surgery was performed, achieving complete tumor resection. A severe mitral valve insufficiency that required valvuloplasty was evidenced. The patient was discharged on the sixth day after surgery.

Keywords : cardiac mixoma; mitral valve insufficiency; mitral valvuloplasty.
