Cardiac hamartoma is an extremely rare type of benign cardiac tumour. A 35 year-old female presented with exertional dyspnea, palpitation, dry-cough and chest-tightness. A mass was discovered in the posterior-inferior wall of the left ventricle. A partial resection of the tumour was performed because of partial obstruction of the left ventricular inflow tract. Histological examination was indicative of a rare benign tumour of the heart: hamartoma of mature myocytes. A literature review completes the description. © 2011 Australasian Society of Cardiac and Thoracic Surgeons and the Cardiac Society of Australia and New Zealand.

Saphenous vein graft pseudo-aneurysm after coronary bypass grafting occurs rarely. Reoperation could be challenging in particular when the pseudo-aneurysm of the proximal vein graft anastomosis happens in patients who had combined replacement of the ascending aorta. We report a case of a patient with a pseudo-aneurysm of the proximal vein graft anastomosis from a modify bentall conduit implanted eight years before treated successfully by a hybrid approach.
