In this article, we report a 65-year-old man with a large atrial myxoma arising from the posterior wall and from the base of the right inferior pulmonary vein. The big neoplastic mass showed a large implant site. A rare atrial myxoma neovascularity arising from the atrial circumflex artery was very clearly visualized by selective coronary arteriography. The surgical approach used to resect this tumor was an isolated left atriotomy that provided excellent exposure and safe excision.
