Lactic acidosis.at it's pick. Well skill.. An abnormal growth of tissue in the heart, and may be classified as either cancerous (malignant) or non-cancerous (benign). Cardiac tumors are further classified as either primary (originating within the heart itself) or secondary (spread from a primary tumor in a different part of the body). Congratulation to team.

Nice c/o of cardiac growth Metabolic acidosis in compensatory phase Good sharing

Because cardiac tumors can lead to problems with blood flow, surgery to remove the tumor is usually the treatment of choice. But, whether surgery is needed depends on the tumor size, whether it causes symptoms, and the patient’s overall health. Removal requires open heart surgery. But, in many cases, the surgery can be done robotically or using a minimally invasive technique. During the surgery, the surgeon removes the tumor and the tissue around it to reduce the risk of the tumor returning. Because the surgery is complicated and requires a still heart, a heart-lung machine will be used to take over the work of your heart and lungs during surgery. Recovery after traditional surgery is usually 4 to 5 days in the hospital, and 6 weeks total recovery time. If the tumor is removed using a robotic or minimally invasive approach, your hospital stay will likely be shorter, and you should make a full recovery in about two to three weeks. After surgery, you will need to have an echocardiogram every year to make sure that the tumor has not returned and that there are no new growths

NICELY UPDATED THANKS. FOR SHARING. SIR

Very well done!
