Abstract

Atrial myxoma in pregnancy is rare and its clinical manifestations vary according to the size, location and mobility of the tumor. Transesophageal echocardiography which is useful to visualize cardiac anatomy and function can reveal possible wall movement abnormalities and tumor embolism. In this article, we report application of anesthesia under the guidance of transesophageal echocardiography in a pregnant patient with an intra-atrial myxoma developed within three months.
