Abstract

Primary heart sarcomas are exceedingly rare tumors. Among primary cardiac sarcomas, synovial sarcoma is one of the rarest, involving cardiac cavities or pericardium. Two cases of synovial sarcoma are presented with the clinical course and therapy. Both cases were treated with surgery and chemo/radiotherapy. Interestingly, one of the patient, a 52-year-old male with an intracardiac synovial sarcoma, undergone a SynCardia total artificial heart implantation, but died for multiple pulmonary metastases waiting for transplantation. Complete surgical resection of cardiac synovial sarcoma is the gold standard of therapy, though rarely possible. Although guidelines for the treatment are not well established, due to limited number of cases reported, chemotherapy and radiotherapy are frequently administered and seem to prolong mean patient's survival. Cardiac transplantation could be considered in selected cases.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 1. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 03 July 2018.
All research outputs
#11,701,845
of 13,177,477 outputs
Outputs from Journal of Cardiothoracic Surgery
#431
of 508 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#232,850
of 268,150 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Journal of Cardiothoracic Surgery
#8
of 8 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 13,177,477 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 1st percentile – i.e., 1% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 508 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 2.4. This one is in the 1st percentile – i.e., 1% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 268,150 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 1st percentile – i.e., 1% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 8 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one.
