Abstract

Unresectable cardiac tumors, although unusual, are often rapidly fatal. A 31-year-old woman presented with a large tumor arising from the left ventricle and causing symptoms of a constrictive cardiomyopathy. After evaluation with echocardiography, angiography, and computed tomography, an exploration was carried out to confirm the extent of disease. Orthotopic heart transplantation was subsequently performed when a donor organ became available. She is now alive and disease-free 12 months after transplantation.
