Abstract

Cardiac manifestations of secondary tumors of the heart exert their effects directly by endocardial, myocardial, epicardial or cavitary deposits (metastatic lesions); indirectly via tumor products such as carcinoma; or mediated by therapy (chemotherapy, radiation) to treat the primary neoplasm. Part II of this review summarizes certain direct effects of noncardiac tumors on the heart including superior and inferior vena cava syndromes, pulmonary artery and vein obstruction or compression, myocardial implants, and intracavitary metastases. Many of these direct effects may be noninvasively diagnosed by computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging and/or two‐dimensional echocardiography.
