Abstract

Papillary fibroelastomas of the heart are relatively rare benign tumors and although they can be symptom free, symptoms such as cerebral ischemia and cardiac infarction can be lethal. It is important to diagnose this tumor using echocardiography, because lethal embolisms can be prevented by surgical resection. Recurrence of this tumor has not been reported and multiple tumors are rare. The present report is a case of double primary aortic valve fibroelastoma with aortic regurgitation diagnosed 4 years after surgery for a left ventricular fibroelastoma with mitral valvular disease.
