PRIMARY CARDIAC TUMORS: EARLY SURGERY, COMPLETE RESECTION,CHEMOTHERAPY ENHANCES SURVIVAL

Primary cardiac tumors are rare. The incidence varies between 0.3% to 0.7% .Quarter of all primary cardiac tumors are malignant, of these 75% are sarcomas. Malignant primary cardiac sarcomas that affect right atrium are predominantly angiosarcomas while the left atrium is involved primary in pleomorphic sarcoma like malignant brous histiocytoma and leiomyosarcoma. In a young patient it usually carries a dismal prognosis if not diagnosed early and dealt with surgically followed by adjuvant therapy.
