A patient underwent surgical resection twice for primary and metastatic dedifferentiated liposarcomas. Computed tomography revealed a tumor mass at the cavoatrial junction. Prompt surgical resection of the tumor with thrombectomy was successfully performed using cardiopulmonary bypass with hypothermic circulatory arrest. Despite the poor prognosis of metastatic or recurrent liposarcoma, the patient has survived for 8 years since the first tumor resection.
