                 Cardiac Masses

In a patient undergoing surgery for a cardiac mass obstructing the mitral valve, we initially suspected a myxoma...however, some echocardiographic features seemed suspect.

A recent publication examining echocardiography criteria for the identification of different cardiac masses may be found here.
