Department of Cardiac Surgery, Imam Reza Hospital, Mashhad University of Medical Sciences, Mashhad,I.R.Iran.


We describe a 67-year-old man with a primary diagnosis of left atrial myxoma. Preoperative coronary angiography revealed a significant three-vessel disease. The patient underwent surgery, comprising the complete resection of the left atrial mass concomitant with coronary artery bypass grafting. He had good recovery without any complications in the early and late follow-up. There was no residual tumor or recurrence. The histopathological examination of the mass confirmed the diagnosis of the left atrial myxoma.(Iranian Heart Journal 2015;16(3):54-56)
