Heart Tumors are generally very rare, and not all require surgical treatment. The most frequent tumors are metastases of cancer elsewhere in the body. They are 20 to 40 times more frequent than those originating in the heart. The most frequent are metastases of breast or lung cancer, followed by that of lymphomas, melanomas, and sarcomas.

1: Transmyocardial Laser Revascularization (TMR) – This procedure is usually performed to treat angina when no other treatments work. A small incision is done in the chest to expose the heart muscle, and a high-energy laser is used to make one millimeter wide channels inside the heart. The outer areas of the channels are closed, but the inner ones remain open to improve blood flow. It isn’t fully understood how TMR works, but there is evidence this surgery helps the heart grow tiny new blood vessels, which relieve angina.
