Multiple angiosarcomas in the gingiva

A 56-year-old white woman complained of "bleeding gum lesions." Previous medical history revealed systemic arterial hypertension, diabetes mellitus, cardiac arrhythmia, and surgery for a prosthetic heart valve placement. Oral examination showed 3 pedunculated nodules in the gingiva involving the 3 remaining upper teeth, about 1.5 cm in greatest diameter, with rapid growth and bleeding but otherwise asymptomatic. Diagnostic hypothesis was pyogenic granuloma. Complete blood count showed leukopenia and thrombocytopenia.

AbstractCoarctation is rare in patients over 50 years of age; however, if present, it can be associated with complex intracardiac pathologies and represent a formidable surgical challenge. Herein, we report a single ‐stage approach for surgical repair of coarctation associated with aortic, mitral, and tricuspid valve pathology using an ascending‐to‐descending aortic bypass with posterior pericardial access.
