Cardiac myxoma arising form right ventricular outflow tract (RVOT) is extremely rare, but could cause major clinical sequelae and pose considerable diagnostic and therapeutic challenges. Here, we report the intraoperative application of real time three-dimensional transesophageal echocardiography (RT3DTEE) in the assessment of a patient with a RVOT myxoma. RT3DTEE clearly assess the characteristics of the mass, such as the size, shape, attachment points, and composition. With the intraoperative guidance of RT3DTEE, the patient underwent successful removal of the mass.
