Intracardiac thyroid tumor in a dog: diagnosis and surgical removal

Journal of the American Animal Hospital Association 30(1): 20-23
Intracardiac thyroid tumor in a dog: diagnosis and surgical removal
In a 13-year-old mixed breed dog presenting with a history of syncope precipitated by stress or exertion, a grade 4/6 systolic murmur was auscultated low at the left heartbase. Echocardiography revealed a soft tissue density mass within the right ventricular outflow tract, which appeared to be obstructing the pulmonary valve orifice during systole. Surgical removal of the mass was accomplished via right ventriculotomy using hypothermia and venous inflow occlusion.
