Left ventricular papillary fibroelastoma: two-dimensional echocardiographic detection and surgical resection.


We report a patient with a papillary fibroelastoma arising from the left ventricular posterior wall. The tumor was detected incidentally during echocardiography undertaken to evaluate aortic stenosis. Possible complication from tumor embolization was avoided by surgical resection during aortic valve replacement.
