Primary cardiac tumor can arise from any location in the right and left cardiac chamber. Complete excision is generally recommended because of uncertainty regarding malignancy; however it is important to minimize the resultant functional deterioration after surgery. We report a case of endocardial hemangioma (4 × 3 × 3 cm) on the free wall of the right ventricle, located between the anterior and posterior papillary muscles. We describe details of the procedure to preserve the right ventricular volume and competence of the tricuspid valve.
