Abstract

Cardiac angiosarcoma is a rare primary cardiac tumor. Outcomes of minimally invasive resection of cardiac angiosarcoma are rarely reported in the literature

A male patient aged 28 years old presented with a right atrial mass compressing the superior vena cava and associated with pericardial effusion. Pericardiocentesis was done, and a preoperative workup revealed no distant metastasis. We planned excision of the mass through a right mini-thoracotomy approach. Intraoperatively, we found the mass invading the entire atrial wall thickness, and excision of the mass with a reconstruction of the right atrial wall was performed. Minimally invasive resection of atrial angiosarcoma could be feasible. Atrial angiosarcoma could present with vague signs and symptoms
