Abstract

Two-dimensional echocardiography (2-D echo) has become the diagnostic technique of choice for identifying intracardiac masses. Further, the safely of the method has permitted serial examination of patients who have undergone surgical excision of such masses.1,2 This report describes, for the first time, use of 2-D echo to monitor regression, during chemotherapy, of a left ventricular mass and shows striking concomitant resolution of tumor-induced electrocardiographic changes.
