A very loud systolic murmur was identified during a pre-operative evaluation of a 51-year-old woman for an elective hysterectomy. The TTE showed a 4.7 cm intracardiac mass obstructing the RVOT. The patient was scheduled instead for resection of the mass. Before anesthesia induction, the surgical team and perfusionist were prepared to initiate CPB in case of circulatory collapse. After induction of general anesthesia, the patient became hypotensive, requiring vasopressor support. She recovered and was then successfully placed on CPB. The mass was removed without incident, and a TEE confirmed resolution of the RVOT obstruction. The patient did well post-operatively.
