Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

We report 2 cases of cardiac papillary fibroelastoma in aortic position that were successfully treated by complete surgical excision, without damage to the aortic valve. This rare cardiac tumor can be associated with serious embolic or hemodynamic complications and therefore, prompt surgical intervention is required.
