|Issue Date:||Sep-2019||Source:||31(9):E273||Journal title:||Journal of Invasive Cardiology||Department:||Cardiology||Abstract:||A 77-year-old woman with obstructive sleep apnea presented with a 3-week history of leg swelling and dyspnea on exertion. She had a dry cough and lost 10 kg over the past 2 years. Examination revealed elevated jugular venous pressure, reduced air entry in the left lower-lung field, and pedal edema. Imaging with chest computed tomography revealed a giant pedunculated left atrial myxoma to be the cause of her severe pulmonary hypertension, which was reversible with treatment.||URI:||https://elibrary.cclhd.health.nsw.gov.au/cclhdjspui/handle/1/1666||Pubmed:||https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/31478895||ISSN:||1042-3931||Publicaton type:||Journal Article||Keywords:||Cardiology
