Abstract.

Myxomas are rare benign cardiac tumors but consists 50% of all intracardiac masses. They present neither cardiac obstructive symptoms, neither constitutional symptoms, neither embolic events. Preoperative assessment is important for further treatment. The authors present two case studies of personal observations. Computed tomography is an imaging modality which visualize very well atrial masses and can be strongly suggestive for myxomas
