AbstractA retrospective analysis of cardiac tumors surgically excised in a 14- year period in Hong Kong was performed. The study showed 65 primary tumors (64 cardiac myxomas, one unclassified sarcoma), and one metastatic leiomyosarcoma. All patients were Chinese except a Filipino woman who had a cardiac sarcoma. The incidence of primary cardiac tumors in Hong Kong Chinese was estimated to be 0.83 per million population per year. The mean age of patients at operation was 50. There were 37 females and 27 males with no difference in mean ages between the two groups. The average size of myxoma was 4.7 cm. The anatomic locations of the 64 myxomas were left atrium (60), right atrium (2), mitral valve (1), and atrial septum on both sides (1). The main presenting clinical features were dyspnea (46%), cerebral embolism (32%), and palpitation (27%). No familial or syndromatic case was noted. Well-differentiated glandular structures were found in one right atrial myxoma. The findings were compared with those of a local series of cardiac tumors found at autopsy.
