CARDIAC ANGIOSARCOMA IN PATHOLOGIST’S PRACTICE

Primary malignant cardiac neoplasms are a rare pathology but undoubtedly have a huge social significance. They occur mainly in young people; primary heart tumors are poorly identified, are prone to an extremely aggressive course, and can be hiding under the guise of various common cardiac diseases for a long time. Tumor pathology of the heart is associated with great difficulties in diagnosis and almost complete lack of opportunities for radical treatment, always leads to the fatal outcome in a short time. The most important directions in the study of this pathology are known to be both the diagnostic methods improvement and new approaches to therapy development allowing provide control over the disease course until recovery. This, of course, should be the result of close cooperation between clinicians and pathologists who have appropriate theoretical and practical training.
