Abstract
Three cases of cardiac papillary fibroelastomas are described. Two-dimensional echocardiography detected the tumors in the mitral valve, the cordae tendinae and in the apex of the left ventricle--a unique location. The tumor excisions were combined with bypass operation, mitral valve reconstruction, repair of cordae tendinae and Maze-procedure. The three patients are doing well after surgery.
