We treated a 57-year-old female patient with an atrial tumor that was widely attached to the atrial septum. The tumor was diagnosed as a cystic tumor of the atrioventricular node (CTAVN). This type of tumor is rare, and its antemortem diagnosis is difficult because it is usually asymptomatic. This tumor may cause sudden death; thus surgical resection is recommended. We performed partial resection instead of total resection to avoid pacemaker implantation. 
Cystic tumor of the atrioventricular node: a review of the literature.
TLDR
Cystic tumor of the atrioventricular (AV) node, also known as mesothelioma of the AV node, is a benign congenital tumor that is located in the triangle of Koch in the AV nodal region of theAtrial septum of the heart. Expand

TLDR
Cystic tumour of the atrioventricular node is the smallest tumour that can cause sudden cardiac death and arises from foregut endodermal rests which become enfolded into the heart during embryogenesis. Expand
Interstage somatic growth in children with hypoplastic left heart syndrome after initial palliation with the hybrid procedure
TLDR
It is shown that patients undergoing the hybrid procedure have poor weight gain before superior cavopulmonary connection, before returning to baseline by Fontan completion, which is a risk factor of morbidity and worse neurodevelopmental outcomes. Expand
