We present the case of an advanced and large cardiac angiosarcoma in the right atrium and right ventricle, which occupied the most part of the right heart and created a significant stenosis in the pulmonary circulation. Our patient was in very bad general condition with severe respiratory distress and had very unstable hemodynamic. Also, he experienced two episodes of CPR (cardiopulmonary resuscitation) before he was transferred to the operating room. Given the patient’s poor condition and limited life expectancy, we performed a palliative bypass procedure, consisting of cavopulmonary anastomosis.
