Fibroelastoma Recurrence in Left Ventricle: Rarity of Primary Cardiac Tumor.


ABSTRACT: Cardiac papillary fibroelastoma (CPF) is a primary cardiac neoplasm usually detected by echocardiography. Left ventricular fibroelastomas are extremely rare. The incidence of CPF is between 0.0017 and 0.33% during autopsy studies. We report a 70-year-old man who had papillary fibroelastoma discovered and resected in 2005 that recurred in 2013. The tumor grew rapidly from 2013 to 2014. A bioprosthetic mitral valve was placed in 2014. Due to the location and nature of the recurrent tumor, mitral valve replacement was the treatment of choice to prevent a third recurrence of the fibroelastoma. The patient was discharged from the hospital on postoperative day 9.
