Myxoma is the most common type of primary cardiac tumors and is usually benign and asymptomatic, although it has been reported with fatal complications due to extracardiac manifestations. Extracorporeal cardiopulmonary resuscitation, a rescue therapy for cardiac arrest, yields favorable outcomes, only if complications have a reversible origin. Herein, we report the first case of abdominal aortic occlusion due to total myxoma detachment who was successfully treated with extracorporeal cardiopulmonary resuscitation.
