In a new publication from Cardiovascular Innovations and Applications, Xiaofan Peng, Yichao Xiao Yanan Guo and colleagues from Central South University, Changsha, Hunan, China consider the clinical significance of angiographically detectable neovascularity in patients with cardiac myxoma.
Myxomas are the most common primary cardiac tumors. Angiographically detectable neovascularity (ADN) of myxoma is increasingly being reported as a result of the use of coronary angiography (CAG) to detect coronary artery disease. However, the clinical significance of these findings is not fully understood.
The authors of this paper enrolled 59 patients with cardiac myxoma who also underwent CAG between January 2013 and October 2018. The clinical features, echocardiography measurements, pathological examination findings, CAG results, and outcomes during follow-up were compared between patients with ADN and patients without ADN.
