The cardiac tumors: Etiology, epidemiology and diagnosis
Primary cardiac tumors are a rare entity whose incidence is 0.3% to 0.7% of all cardiac tumors. The aim of this study was review of modern data of heart tumors epidemiology, etiology, pathogenesis and diagnostic procedures. Symptom presentation for cardiac tumors is quite varied, but it is dependent upon their location and size, rather than upon histological characteristics. The diagnosis of cardiac tumors relies heavily on the use of multiple imaging techniques. Surgical excision in combination with systemic chemotherapy are the best treatment for malignant cardiac tumors.
