Primary cardiac sarcoma treated by orthotopic cardiac transplantation

Academic Article


  • The authors report a new case of cardiac sarcoma treated by cardiac transplantation. This treatment has been proposed for these malignant tumours of poor prognosis when simple excision is impossible, with variable results. This patient is in good general condition 20 months after transplantation. Transplantation is a therapeutic procedure which should be considered in malignant turnouts limited to the heart.
