Symptomatic cardiac tumors can lead to a rapid clinical deterioration and death. Prompt surgical resection is ideal in this situation as it is the only proven treatment to date. We report the radical resection of a large malignant cardiac tumor that obstructed the right ventricular outflow tract. Extensive resection precluded reconstruction and limited the ability to implant a total artificial heart; thus, 2 paracorporeal devices were implanted instead.
