JOAQUIM, Marcos Rogério; BRAILE, Domingo Marcolino; ARRUDA, Marcus Vinícius Ferraz de  and  SOARES, Marcelo José Ferreira. Right atrial lipoma resection and partial reconstruction using bovine pericardium. Rev Bras Cir Cardiovasc [online]. 2009, vol.24, n.2, pp.239-241. ISSN 0102-7638.

The primary heart tumors have an incidence varying from 0.001% to 0.28% of all tumors, reported in necropsies series. Lipoma consists of a benign tumour corresponding to about 8% of all primary heart tumors. When present, the symptoms are related to the size and location of such tumor. We report a case of a 27-year-old man with a lipoma in the right atrium who underwent surgical treatment with tumor resection and partial reconstruction of the right atrium using bovine pericardium.
