Resumen
A 20-year-old patient, who had been treated for a femur sarcoma with pulmonary metastases 8 years before, arrived at our institution with a new metastatic hilar lung nodule. During the standard lobectomy procedure an unexpected atrial invasion by the tumor was discovered. Intraoperative transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) showed a big pediculated tumor in the atrium. Cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) was required in order to safely resect the atrial wall with the tumor. The atrial defect was repaired with a pericardial patch. Postoperative course was uneventful. After 14 months, the patient is asymptomatic and free of disease.
