El mixoma es un tumor benigno del corazón. Los mixomas de aurícula derecha ocurre menos con frecuencia que mixoma de la aurícula izquierda. Es necesario seguir un tratamiento para evitar la metástasis y la formación de coágulos. Además, sin tratamiento, el crecimiento del tumor puede obstruir el flujo sanguíneo hacia el corazón. Los mixomas se solucionan con extirpación quirúrgica.
